Revelation (A Long Time Coming) | Behind the Track

Album: No Time Like the End Times

What is it about?

“Revelation (A Long Time Coming),” is the final track from the upcoming album “No Time Like the End Times.”

This album’s general theme is endings. Revelation is a song that paints a scene of what I think I would be doing in the face of nuclear war. The odds of that are still low, but the world inches closer each day.

Revelation also sums up the album using snippets of lyrics from each song that presents on the album to create something entirely new.

Lyrics: Revelation (A Long Time Coming)

Put on the war god's mantle
and cut the umbilical
Hope no one's watching while you're
falling on your sword
And though your tears may mame the skin
they won't stop the horsemen
Patiently waiting while you bleed out
on the floor.

One quiet night I woke up in this small house
Put a nail in my coffin so I know it won't let me down
Don't want it creaking when I go to sleep in
the fallout
I'm just here for the art of the breakdown.

It's been a long time coming
I've been searching for something profound
To recite when the lights go down
And I'm hoping I don't let you down
It's been a long time coming

The night was black
The air was sweet
The silence shattered by the screams
In the distance sirens wailing
Oh so sweet

You can hear the seals breaking
Sounds like revelation

It's been a long time coming
My God
It's been a long time coming

I'm just here for the art of the breakdown
I'm just here for the art of the breakdown

I'm just looking for something profound
To recite when the lights go down
I just hope that I don't let you down.

I'm just here for the art of the breakdown

Its been a long time coming
Revelations been a long time coming
