"Revelations" as written by Chris Cornell, Brad Wilk, Tim Commerford and Tom Morello....
You know what to do
You know what I did
Since you know everything, just clue me in
I am such a wreck
I am such a mess
I know what I know
Why don't you fill in the rest?
I will bring it down
I will make it bad
While you're feeling proud
Why don't you help me?

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now
Your revelations
Cut me in
I don't want to live without
Your revelations, revelations

You know what to say
You know what I said
You know what I dream sleeping in my bed
You hold all the keys
You know all the rules
Why don't you guide me in if I'm such a lost soul?
I'm spinning around
I will make you ill
Since I'm so broken down, why don't you fix me?

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now
Your revelations
Cut me in
I don't want to live without
Your revelations

I am haunted when I am sleeping
Try to give without receiving
It's in the apple bite
It's in the days and nights
In the afterlife we'll reap

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now
Your revelations
Cut me in
I don't want to live without
Your revelations

Such a shame, such a shame
That I wouldn't know by now
Cut me in
I don't want to live without
Your revelations, revelations

    General CommentYou may have to think about the possibility of it not being sarcastic, but maybe someone who honestly doesn't know themselves as much as an acquaintance. Someone who isn't aware of who they are, or what their actions cause. That's at least how I feel about this one.

    (But it looks like everyone is referring to bush, which must be the popular thing to do, other than considering ALL options.)

    Open up your minds a little people.

    General CommentDefinitely about pompous know-it-alls, which could also include some Christian fundamentalists, like others noted. But really, there are all kinds of people who believe their ideas on certain subjects are just so much better than yours (whether religious, political, economical, sports-related), yet they don't really help you out.

    General CommentI think it's about Christians who just associate with other Christians instead of reaching out like we're kind of supposed to do. Chris Cornell isn't very religious but he can definitely be spiritual and I think it really comes through in this song. It's for sure a good one.

    General CommentThere is a download of it somewhere, I have the full song.

    You guys can find it on Audioslave's message board, in one of the threads.

    General CommentGreat song, just bought Madden and heard it yesterday...

    As of now, I can't figure out the meaning of the song...

    The songs on the new album seem to have a looser, funkier vibe to them...

    If every song is as good as this one, Revelations could be Audioslave's best album yet...
