I hear you breathe so far from here
I feel your touch so close and real

And I know my church is not of silver and gold
Its glory lies beyond judgment of souls
The commandments are of consolation and warmth

You know our sacred dream won't fail
The sanctuary tender and so frail
The sacrament of love
The sacrament of warmth is true
The sacrament is you

I hear you weep so far from here
I taste your tears like you're next to me

And I know my weak prayers are not enough to heal
The ancient wounds so deep and so dear
The revelation is of hatred and fear

    General Commentits pretty much saying there are things greater than the judgement in the afterlife,for example love...i saw them in concert in vegas and he said he was with a women and a mormon person came knocking on his door and he got pissed,the story did make sense to the song and after the song,he announced the story was bs and that he was still waiting for prince to come knocking on his door.He is being a tad bit religous in this song,but not on a big level.hes just relating things
