Lebanon Elevator

Words and Music: Tony Marrison.



Walking on the desert sands
Holds me in its burning hands
The heat rises, melts the air
Rising above me

Sun beats the desert like a drum
Skin rings with ancient song
I hear the call, it fills the air
Like a warning


It's time
Gotta leave it all behind
There's an escape for humankind
A beam right to the sun
Rising up from Lebanon



Now I enter the Lebanon
Green hills and peaks of snow
The sea mists enfold me
The warm breeze holds me

At the temple gates of Baalbek
Shafts rise from the minarets
I step in the portal, the beam opens wide

My frequencies shift, I shoot up in the sky



Lebanon Elevator x3
Rise up!
