This song ignited me. Elephant Revival is a transcendental folk quintet that combines blue grass elements such as the wash board with traditional Scottish and Celtic fiddle pieces. Add unbelievably heady lyrics and there isn't much not to like.  I went a long time as an Atheist. When I found Jesus I realized he was there all along just as the lyrics say. Another underlying theme of the song Forgiveness is that you must experience the evil in this world to know what good entails. "I have become the devil to realize that I'm divine / I have been living in poverty because I could not see my wealth", how beautifully poetic. For a band that is not strictly Christian per say, Elephant Revival hit a note in my heart.
