Elephant Revival

By Daniel Rodriguez

I have become the devil
To realize that I’m divine
I have been living with demons
Last night I left them by the fire
In my quest I seek forgiveness
In my love, I will forgive
I have lied to see what truth is
The burns heal, the smoke clears away

Oh, my love
I have returned to you
You were there all along
While my head was turned

I have deceived many angels
Including that one of myself
I have been living in poverty
Because I couldn’t see my wealth
I have been defined by hate
I have been defined by pain
By the powers vested
The waters wash it all away

Oh my love, saturate me
Oh my love, room to breathe
Oh my love, completely surround me
Oh my love
