LYRICS: “Revelation” by G.T. Thomas

Waking up from a century long nap
It was all I could do not to laugh,
As I stepped in the shower after the hour had passed.

Observing the water begin
Trickling down this Human-Grade Skin™,
Like a guy in a novel who’s having a revelation.

I’m alive.
This time I’ve arrived.

When you get there, you think it looks great
The rooms are quite large, and they’re closing the gate
“To keep out the riff-raff,” they say, “On your behalf,” but just wait.

Every morning there is no such thing
[NO SUCH THING.]

Every evening there is no such thing
[NO SUCH THING.]

And for afternoon tea, or a walk by the sea?
No such thing.

And that’s why this is big:
I’m alive.
This time I’ve arrived.
I’ve arrived.

I’m alive.
I’m alive.

Like a guy in a novel I’m having a revelation!

All the lifetimes you’ve spent by the pool
Of obsidian cosmos and galaxy drool?
It’s a common mistake that you’re bound to make, but it’s cool

‘Cause one day you will roll on your side
And give up the deafening need to decide
And a pulsating “YES” will ooze forth from whence you still hide.

And just like me, you’ll sing:
I’m alive.
This time I’ve arrived.
I’ve arrived.
I’ve arrived.
I’ve arrived.

[NO SUCH THING.]
