National Revelation 

We're so weary from the opiate of the masses

Suffering for redemption, the fighting among the classes

Spilling blood in innocence's name

Bargaining for the truth

As if it were a game 

 

One man went off into a desert cave

Another prophesized in someone else's name

I need to know somethin' for sure

Not relyin' on the hopes and dreams from long before

 

National revelation

National revelation

National revelation

 

One revelation eternal and holy

One entire nation experienced the One and Only

 

There are those who say all revelations are the same

But why is it that no one else

No one else makes this claim

 

One man went off into a desert cave

Another prophesized in someone else's name

I need to know somethin' for sure

Not relyin' on the hopes and dreams from long before

 

National revelation.

National revelation.

National revelation.
