Temple of Greed

copyright 2021 dalekiddlyrics.com

You walk through the garden

wild flowers wave and weave

by the church where sunshine never enters

You’re invited inside

through worldly gold doors

that lead to a gathering of mentors


The damp air is cold

blind eyes gather round

to form a sea of stone-faced approval

They show you the shrine

pour shame on your head

it is the start of your soul’s removal


Take what you want

not what you need

You can’t get out

no one there’s freed

They’ve padlocked the doors

so don’t try to plead

You’re trapped lock’n’stock

in the Temple of Greed


You’re there for good

with every bad deed

What pleasure awaits

is a toxic seed

You’re called to prayer

to recite the creed

So cradle your guilt

in the Temple of Greed

You sleep in the basement

where colour can’t be found

in the church where sunshine does not venture

They put shades on your eyes

place doubt in your mind

plot a life of tyrannical adventure


Take what you want

not what you need

You can’t get out

no one there’s freed

They’ve padlocked the doors

so don’t try to plead

You’re trapped lock’n’stock

in the Temple of Greed


You’re there for good

with every bad deed

What pleasure awaits

is a toxic seed

You’re called to prayer

to recite the creed

So cradle your guilt

in the Temple of Greed


They've locked the doors

it’s the Devil’s creed

You can’t escape

the Temple of Greed


They've sold your sins

to see you bleed

It's "undermine all"

in the Temple of Greed
