Lyrics

Sometimes it strikes you like a lightening bolt
Sometimes it burns you with it's crimson coat.
There's no runnin' and no place to hide,
It'll come and take you, for a ride.
Crossin' the galazies, one per step
Makes me think I wasted time while I slept.
No amount of reason could explain this power,
Stand back and watch it from the ivory tower.

Chorus:
Revelation City
Lord this place is pretty
Go ahead look around
You are on holy ground
Revelation City

Verse 2;
Rompin' thru the wheat fields of your life
The magic snowfalls and the years of strife.
Steel drums and dancin' streets,
Trumpets and trains,
More to remember, than the sound of rain.
Flyin' kites and cryptograms of your youth
Gave way to saturdays and kissin' booths.
There are bridges and roads in your mind,
Ask for directions and you will find.

Chorus:
Revelation City
Lord it's such a pity
Go ahead look around,
You are on holy ground
Revelation City.
