Songfacts®:

  • This song asks if a religious man is still following religion when he loses his virginity (in this case taking advantage of a girl). He thinks it's acceptable, but it will hurt them both eventually. The "Sugar in the sacrament" is the touch of sweetness in the hard life prescribed by strict religion. >>

  • Chavonne from Destin, FlI think the song fact is pretty accurate.
    Especially with the line:
    "Holy, holy...
    Lift up your dress
    Feel your body
    Dissolving like sugar in the sacrament."
