Sugar in the Sacrament.

Sugar in the Sacrament.
Thursday off of the album "A City By the Light Divided."

What have you done?
You follow footsteps in the dark
and found your faith
left out behind your father's car.

You said, "there's no one watching over me or over you, it's always out of reach..."
I'm sinking still right into:

Oh my god where are you now?
Fractured lives dissolving
Like sugar in the sacrament

If it was just one night
Then we would be released
Tie these lies between our teeth
Keep tearing open bodies
'Let it bleed'

Where have you gone?
Off with the friends you couldn't keep
Your mother's arms
Fill you up with all the empty needs
So the saints line up to bring her in,
Comfort her and it's always comforting
When they start to sing,
the same old:

'Holy holy, lift up your dress
Feel your body dissolving
Like sugar in the sacrament'

"If it was just one night
Then you could be redeemed
Tie these sins between your teeth,
Make hollow promises we'll never keep..... tonight."

This is all we've ever known of God.
Fly with me let me touch you now.
This is all we've ever known of God.
This is all we've ever known of God.
This is all we've ever known of God.

(The second song is a band called Thrice....very much like Thursday, this is an older song by them but perhaps my favorite. If you listen to it (N), you will understand why like it pretty easily. But the first song. that song is for you. You would really like Thursday.)

Thursday is such a good band. they are not a punk band. They are an emotional, independent band that hit it big with their sound. If you could take REM, SEAL and Pearl Jam...put them all together and you have Thursday. They are a NYC band and sing about New York City and the pain and suffering that goes along with living there and growing up too fast. They are amazing. best albums are:

A City By The Light Divided.
War All The Time.
Full Collapse.

I have been a fan of them since 2002. They are really pretty big now. This song I have reposted is one of their songs that means a lot to me. I wish you could hear it.
