Lyrics

Revelations

Written By: Jeremy Fisher

The way the vendors serve up your food and you get your clothes form the stalls.
The way Pocari Sweat really tastes like sweat bought from those towering malls.

The way we're cooled by electric boxes hanging from plain old white walls.
The way the sugar makes you run around like children run in the halls.

You might think that you'd understand your surroundings and that our blood runs thick and our roots are firmly planted.

If that day should come all it takes is one revelation and the mention of your name just the same, I do.

The way your clothes cling to your body from the dripping wet air.
The way a storm rolls in like a herd of trucks and I just imagine you there.

You might think that we'd understand our surroundings and that our blood runs thick and our roots are firmly planted.

If that day sould come all it takes is one revelation and the mention of your name just the same, I do.

The way we all get up in the morning but keep are eyes on the road.
The way everyone meets for breakfast and the bargains are sold.
