INSIDE THE PYRAMID

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


       I.  in the tomb beneath the sand,
           curators exploring like ants upon a hand,
           finding all the treasure that was hid,
           looking for redemption...

  CHORUS:  inside the pyramid
           in the Valley of the Kings.
           inside the pyramid
           they've discovered many things.

      II.  there were princes by the score.
           they had slaves and servants. none of them were poor.
           nobody remembers what they did.
           we only know the paintings...

           /// REPEAT CHORUS ///

     III.  all the painters underground
           bring their torches and stand before the wall.
           "nothing we do ever will be found.
           why do this at all?"

      IV.  three millennia have passed.
           fifty-two princes and pharaoh turn to dust,
           and the only things to last
           are the tracings of the humble brush...

           /// REPEAT CHORUS TWICE ///
