Insomnium - Revelation Lyrics

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 through 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.

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

"I hear the unsaid thoughts,
The silence through 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."

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

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.

Insomnium Revelation Comments
  1. B. H.

    One summer I sat with my girlfriend on the balcony, I was totally drunk. Later that night we went inside to ... well, I wanted to sing this to her. I laid my head upon her feet and I was _very_ drunk. Well. Later we .... What a damn fucking epic great song. This is perfect. Still I am really in love with her. She with me. However, I wish I had all the might like the creature singing. I would know what to do. Oh yes.

    It's just beautiful

  35. judas deadly night kisser

    I'm just getting into this band and it is awesome

  36. slinkeepy

    So I did a thing, I added this song to Smule Sing! Please use it -- it's as accurate as possible in both timing and lyrics, with vocals completely removed (though of course with a slightly warped instrumental track as is unavoidable for all standard vocal removal processes, still good though). I have a new 7-day invite just started. I will be adding other Insomnium songs too from the same album, as well as heaps of songs from Omnium Gatherum (my fave band currently), for whom there is almost nothing on Sing. It will be done gradually over time though. I just want them to be available to anyone who searches for them 8)

  37. jean rene adigadou

  57. MetalMark9

    After 7 years, Insomnium always has me coming back.

  58. Owsse

    that whole ending from 4:08 onwards is just unbelievable, get chills everywhere everytime i hear that part.

  59. Swedish Fish

    One thing I will say about melodic death metal is that it all kinda sounds the same. At the gates, dark tranquility, mors principium est, etc. However with Insomnium I’ve never heard music with such powerful and moving lyrics. Saw them a few months back and they only played for about 45 minutes but it was amazing.

  60. MRvanus GG

    pero que buen LYRIC la reputamadreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  61. Maximus Gigantos

    Every song of Insomnium is so beautiful

  62. Santanu Kaushik

    Dislikers are some pop lovers they can't understand the lyrics neither instruments

  63. Brandon Hagan'Dragon

    it's about geo-engineering and changing the world. destroying mass amounts of population so that few can enjoy a man made utopia or heaven on earth.. most of us won't see it. we will be dead. even us "FANS".

  64. Deoye Falade

    December 2017 and I'm still here, drinking in this beauty through my ears

    Storm Killzone

    Deoye Falade This song really never gets old. It takes you to a fantasy world for about 5 minutes.

  65. Jaizz J. Z.
