​High Priest Of Memphis

This song is by Bell + Arc and appears on the album Bell + Arc (1971).

Time's changing quickly
Time just seems to fly
Happiness is the painless
Lord, the sorrow makes you cry
People living in lies
And liars are insane
Ooh, the most of the people I know
Lord, they're playing that game

High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born, oh yeah
High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born

Who rules in the heavens?
Lord, who lights up the sky?
Who has the breath of life?
In the Nile who fueled your fire?
Oh, I don't know the answer
I don't know the reason why
But if you're gonna take me
Take me where I lie

High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born
High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born, oh yeah

High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon
High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon

Time's changing quickly
Time seems to fly
Happiness is the painless
Lord, the sorrow makes you cry
People living in lies
Liars are insane
Ooh, the most of the people I know
Lord, they're playing that game

High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born, oh yeah yeah
High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born, oh yeah yeah

High priest of Memphis
High priest of a pentagon you were born, oh Lord, come on now
High priest of Memphis...
