Missio – Temple Priest

Temple Priest

[Chorus]
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka

[Verse 1]
Man, you know I got some questions
But you say you know the truth
I’m not done learning all my lessons
Ignorance is no excuse

Everything you say I'm missing
Think I'm destined for the dirt?
It’s like I'm guilty by omission
I guess maybe I'll convert

[Bridge]
And I'm like Yeah yeah
And you're like Nah nah
And I'm like HELL YEAH
And I'm like

[Chorus]
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka

[Verse 2]
Why you don’t got any questions?
How you know that this is real?
I am feeling such repression
You can’t tell me how to feel

Why you think I'm at the bottom?
Why you think I’m off the path?
Cuz I used to love the bottle?
Or is it the tattoos on my back?

[Bridge]
And I'm like Yeah yeah
And you're like Nah nah
And I'm like HELL YEAH
And I’m like

[Chorus]
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka

[Paul Wall]
Bow wow baby
Bow wow
Bow wow baby

Ay, judge thee not lest ye be judged
Don't mind me I'm just doing my drugs
I don't bar none and I don't hold no grudge
But I'm all real homie
I do not budge

They tell ya it's for your soul
They just playing a role
Cuz when it's all said and done
It's comes down to control

All the lying and deception
Been taking its toll
But I'm ten toes down
I will not fold

I get manipulated every time I'm in a bad place
They straight lie to my face
And then ask for grace

The phone calls stop coming
When I talk my case
Then they tell me that I'm wrong
If I question my faith

I gotta look past the messenger
And hear the message
I gotta be my best self
And get all my blessings

So let me light up this blunt
And if they hate, so what?
I'm doing me
I'm not concerned too much

[Kota the Friend]
Sitting on the mountaintop
Well above the clouds
I don't feel like I'm about to drop

Hanging in the balance
I don't harbor any malice
I done been up in the slums
I done been up in the palace

I'm infinity
Sacred geometry
Living simply
Universe aligned with my spirit
I feel its symmetry

I remember vividly
The Devil tried to finish me
Nature got my back
So he couldn't fuck with the synergy

I break bread with the lost
Make joy by your pain
Found peace in a war
I made do in the rain

Star shining in night
My light true as the day
I don't believe in the hype
I'm only human, I say

Oh you lost?
Well I'm lost too
And some of us are murdered with the knowledge
But we all fools

What's the point of winning
While we living
When we all lose
When it's said and done
In the ending when we all screwed

[Bridge]
And I'm like Yeah yeah
And you're like Nah nah
And I'm like HELL YEAH
And I'm like

[Chorus]
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka
That's why they call me Temple Priest mothafucka
