Where Have You Been? Lyrics - Manchester Orchestra

Review The Song (1)



They call holidays an option for a reason
I heard you're coming back to life just for the fourth
I've been catching all your ghosts for every season
I pray to god you won't come back here anymore

do you pray with him, too?

They should deliver all my blessings
in small brown paper handbags near the porch
I wished I'd known that you were bleeding while I sat
and watched you reading with the lord

I read with him, too

when you look at me
I'll be digesting your legs
cause I can hardly see
what's in front of me these days
sponsored links
and those days, too.

I've got to take what I'm making
and turn it into something
I've got to take what I'm making
and turn it into something
for you
I've got to break what I'm making
and turn it into nothing
I've got to break what I'm making
and turn it into nothing
for you

God, where have you been?

Another MO song about religion | Reviewer: Breezy | 1/6/10

"when you look at me
I'll be digesting your legs
cause I can hardly see
what's in front of me these days
and those days, too."
I take this as the bread or the flesh of Jesus. He's taking in the bread without even looking at where it is coming from.
"They should deliver all my blessings
in small brown paper handbags near the porch
I wished I'd known that you were bleeding while I sat
and watched you reading with the lord"
Another example of sinning(possibly drinking) and not recognizing him bleeding on the cross.

This is my .02 but I do know it's about religion. Anybody that says that, first off isn't looking at the lyrics and secondly doesn't know enough of Andy's background.
"They call holidays an option for a reason
I heard you're coming back to life just for the fourth
I've been catching all your ghosts for every season
I pray to god you won't come back here anymore"
Obviously, Easter, the resurrection of Jesus, which could take place on April 4th. I take the ghost part to mean that he continues sinning because of the fact that he catches Jesus' ghosts,who died for our sins. He doesn't want Jesus to come back(end of the world) and see the sins he's committed.
