Triumph and Sin is probably the most subdued, personal thing I've ever written. I don't know that I'll ever do many songs like it, but I do like where it went.

Lyrics:
Do you remember
The triumph and the sin?
Our days ran by
Like smoke upon the wind.

And laid upon my bedspread
Are books with blackened pages.
And five miles back
The fire burns within.

Well, she's not in the doorway.
No, she's not in the chair.
And she's not at the table.
Anymore.

My tongue still remembers
The juniper and gin;
Our recipe
The origin of sin.

And laid upon my table
Are charcoal leaves from ages
That I spent wandering
Out and back again.

Well, she's not in the doorway.
No, she's not in the chair.
And she's not at the table.
Anymore.

Well, she's not in the garden.
No, she's not on the stair.
No, she's not on the left side.
Anymore.

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Triumph and Sin”:
Nice change of pace from what you've been producing lately!

Sort of your "Civil War", or "Every Rose Has It's Thorn"! -- very tender tune.

GREAT HARMONIES, BRO!!!

Thank you as always,

Thank you, man!

This track is actually older than all the recent ones I have posted - I recorded it last December, as I was starting to think about my new album and dealing with some heavy personal stuff. I'm really glad you like it.
