(Kristyn Osborn/Marcus Hummon)

Huh-huh

I've been walking through the fields for hours
Blind to the wild of the wildflowers
Hovering above my own life
Like an apparition, yeah-yeah-yeah
I've been living on bread and water
Somebody's wife, mother, somebody's daughter
Even in the face in the mirror
No recognition
I feel my soul slipping out of my skin
Come clean in a pool of fire, jump in

Everybody needs a revival
Get up off your knees and dance
It's fundamental to our survival
Get hell-bent on shaking that big white tent
Repent

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

All you need is a nagging hunger
Baby the bush is burning, I ain't getting any younger
Belly up and believe
Whatcha waiting for a revelation - yeah yeah
All it takes is a taste of the spirit
Like an addict gotta have it every time I get near it
Straight to the heart of the matter
No hesitation
No other high like liberation
Like liberation, yeah

Yeah cause everybody needs a revival
Get up off your knees and dance
It's fundamental to our survival
Get hell-bent on shaking that big white tent

Yeah, everybody needs a revival
Get up off your knees and dance
It's fundamental to our survival
Get hell-bent on shaking that big white tent
Repent, yeah yeah yeah

Have I really lost my soul
If so, I don't know where it went
And if there's no other way back home
I guess I might as well repent

(Man speaks)

Oh oh oh oh
Come on repent
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Come on repent
(Have I really lost)
You gotta repent
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, hey
(Have I really lost my soul)
Oh, oh, oh
(Yeah, uh-huh, oh yeah)
Yeah-yeah, yeah
(Have I really lost my soul)
Come on, come on
(Get hell-bent)
(Repent, repent, repent, repent)

(Fade)
