Revelation Revolution
Apocalyptic Status Quo
Seven veil striptease unmasking
Only the truth dare tell

Tell & tell & tell it does
Instantaneous electric poke
All the Current-Age people
The synapse chemistry folk

Revolution revelation
Apocalyptic status quo
Caught in the eternal
Moment of perpetual war

No peace no future
You say USA we say SUV
And there we are indeed
Driven by the drivers

Driving in the rear view
Mirror at Super speed
Revelation revolution
Revolution revelation

Revolution revelation
Whew! There he goes
Right on the tectonic plates
Revelation revolution. Again!
