I have drunk the yearning,
Swallowed the flame in full,
And now I will bend the skies to my will.

Two eternities can never be so far part,
That I could not bridge them together.

„I hear the unsaid thoughts,
The silence throught the storm,
I speak without the words,
With unbound soul,
I’ll bring forth the Sun,
And hand over the moon,
I’ll hide the evening stars,
And fold them in your heart.“

I have touched the longing,
Breathed the wistful air,
If I wish, I will turn the winters to springs.

Throught the dust and fear,
I find the faintest light,
And I can see life,
Admist the death that wreaths us all.

„I hear the unsaid thoughts,
The silence throught the storm,
I speak without the words,
With unbound soul,
I’ll bring forth the Sun,
And hand over the moon,
I’ll hide the evening stars,
And fold them in your heart.“

[2x]
Here at your feet,
I rest my head,
Hear the roar of time,
The birth of stars.

[2x]
This is the gift of man,
The key to see it all,
The hidden wonders,
Hope in despair.

But only the few will find it,
Only the few will keep it,
Only the few will ever turn towards the Sun.

    General CommentGood song, great lyrics.
    To me this is essentially about your ability to find the positives in life amidst all the negativity. Sadly, only a few of us have the ability to do this consistently.

    General CommentWhat Insomnium wrote in their booklet :
    "Revelation" was the first song that I wrote for Insomnium, and hence, it will always have a special meaning for me. I already knew all about Insomnium tricks and traps as I've been under the radar for a decade. So I just needed to click my brain on Insomnium mode and go with the flow. This one is a Gothenburg-type fast song and reminds me a bit my own band Omnium Gatherum.

    These were the first lyrics I finished for this album. Some poems by Finnish poet Uuno Kailas have influenced this text. The theme is not very dark or death metal in the end but... shall I say hopeful or empowering. I'll leave it up to you to make your own interpretation.
