Greatest Revival

from Postcards in Real Time by Unquiet Nights

lyrics

I heard sainted tongues make a prediction
That something great was gonna fall
Gravity meant to sink everything to the bottom
While they sit in judgement up above it all

I was thinking of you on that red eye
And all of the miles that we got between
You told me I should sit right down by the river
Watch them floating by in front of me

I heard poison, I heard poison
But the taste of their defeat don't sit on my tongue
Greatest Revival, Greatest Revival Song
'Cause they were wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

I remember everything in the old town
There was only static right round the dial
All of the cars as they pass by the window
Out in the street where we'd walk for miles

Got some feelings you wear like a tattoo
Carved out of victory and defeat
Got a certain instinct for survival
And memories that sit kind of bittersweet

I heard poison, I heard poison
But the taste of their defeat don't sit on my tongue
Greatest Revival, Greatest Revival Song
'Cause they were wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
