Lying In The Hands Of God is absolutely beautiful...

I could listen to this song on repeat for hours. I LOVE this song! By far my favorite song on the album. What do y'all think?

    at first i thought this song was horrible and then one day listening to it in the car it just hit me and i love this song.

    At first my reason for hating it was i felt the compression on the cymbals screwed with the song.

    Possibly the most beautiful chorus (tonally) that Dave's ever written.

    Yes. I think it's very comparable to BTCS material both musically and lyrically. Great, great stuff from DMB.

    Everything on that track is perfect. Not even Lillywhite or Lanois could make it better!

    Did we ever come to grips with whether this was mostly a religious song, or mostly about drug addiction?

    I love singing along with this song. There's several vocal parts to sing along with. Dave, Carter, and I'm pretty sure Rashawn is in there too. 3 parts to sing along with, or make up your own vocal melodies!

    Didn't Dave say in Relix that he "didn't want to say too much" about this one?

    Sounds pretty obvious to me though: love > religion (in Dave's eyes)

    He did say it could be about someone being lost, or someone licking a cactus or something crazy like that....but they're leaving it intentionally vague.

    I can easily see how a song about transcendence can be interpreted through love/religion/drug experience equally, and I'm certain he's happy that's how the song turned out and doesn't want to be any more specific with it.

    It's probably a little bit of all of those.

    Thought I haven't sat and thought about it much, it's probably in my top 3-4 songs from BWGGK. I like the flow of it. I also read in an interview that Dave recorded the vocals at like 430am and he was dead tired; hence the overall sleepy sound of the vocals. Knowing this made me like the tune even more.

    the harmonies in the bridge are my favorite part of the song.....Its funny dave said he was recording them at like 3a.m. and had his head resting in his hand cause he was so tired.
