lyrics

Staring down from my Vanity
Clear Channel runs everything
Corporate radio monopoly
Dissolving into a Puddle of Creed

Covert and clever diablerie
In our face yet we never see
Planting seeds of deception and greed
In the name of The American Dream

All for One for All
All for One for All
All for One for All
All for One
One for All

All the oil in the Middle East
Cannot spare us our gluttony
Mowing down forests to build city streets
Is not a scene The Big Picture needs

And you... you say you want money
And you... you dream about fame
And you... only see milk and honey
And you... you're all losing your way

A.O-HELL to Infinity
Media feeding us everything
Perception - The truth that they sell, we'll believe
Magicians with marketing tricks up their sleeves

One for All for One
One for All for One
One for All for One
One for All
All for One

Killing in the name of some deity
The apex of moral indignity
The corruption that's shaking the money tree
Is not a scene The Big Picture needs

And you... don't you think that it's funny?
Yeah you... a willing pawn in this game
And you... content to sit and do nothing
For you... the end is always the same

Don't you realize it's just a pack of lies?
Those who need it can't afford it
Those who can, collect and hoard it
Don't you realize it's just a pack of lies?
The affluent's obsession
To hold the rest in their oppression

And you... serve the end that is coming
Yeah you... somehow think that you're free
And you... believe that you're cunning
Yeah you... I only wish you could see

Living in a world of hypocrisy
The saddest disgrace to humanity
This mirage and the lies of prosperity
Are not the scenes The Big Picture needs

about

Temple 8 Cleveland, Ohio

Inspired by rock greats like Rush, Triumph, Dream Theater, Spock's Beard, Marillion and Pink Floyd, Temple 8 is philosophically inquisitive and politically irreverent, hitting a home run by using poetic and politically charged lyrics to illustrate the stark state of world affairs, driving toward spiritual awakening, all laid out and wrapped around a superb, epic musical platform. ... more
