"Revival" as written by and Mark/machin Lanegan....
Said, "Gonna be a revival tonight, oh"
I wanna see a revival, yeah
Gonna be a revival tonight
Lord, let there be a revival, yeah

Forgive what I have done
It means my soul's survival, oh
I need You so, it's sin
Put an end to my suffering, oh

Why am I so blind
With my eyes wide open, oh?
Trying to get my hands
Clean in dirty water

Wanna see a revival tonight
Lord, let there be a revival, yeah
I need to see a revival tonight, oh
Wanna see a revival, oh

Why am I so blind
With my eyes wide open, yeah?
Now I need someone
Let this dark night be done, oh

I need You so, it's sin
Put an end to my suffering
I wanna see a revival tonight
Lord, there needs to be a revival

    General CommentThis song is amazing! i love the gospel singers in the background. The video seems to suggest that the singer wants to die and end it all after the death of a girl close to him. Check it out.

    My InterpretationThis song is about seeing the error of one ways and calling on a higher power for a personal revival.

    General Commentit's about a guy, who's a longing for revival but he's bound en wounded by so much things. he needs a revival himself first.

    General CommentArcade Fire meets Micah P. Hinson + a gospel church choir = this.
    Its good, but I'd personally like it without the background choir.
    I love his voice.
