Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Temptation Of Saint Anthony

This song was created for Game of Bands round 15 : "Salvador Dali Painting as Inspiration"


A golden, sinful, lusting lie
I'm watching you.
Hide behind the cloudy spy.
What will you do?

Walking in the heavens high.
On a spindle leg.
You spend your soul, but still you beg.
Beautiful fool.

Kneel before me, half awake.
Rely on faith.
Ones who've gone before you.
Lie in my wake.

Abandoned by your God in sky.
Down in Babylon.
Come to me, it's what you want.
It's up to you.

Make a stand out the desert , praying to be free.
Forever bound by gravity, and reality.
Before the thrones of ecstasy.
A paradox of faith and morality.

Come to me Saint Anthony.
I'll show you what you want to see.

A driven horse across the land.
He'll never tire.
Guided by the shifting sand.
His heart on fire.

Lost out in the desert, I
Have you in my sights.
So black and white.
Like wrong and right.

So make your stand out in the desert, but you're dying to be free.
Forever bound by duty to what you believe.
But weightless as you think of me.
The truth will set you free.

Come to me Saint Anthony.
I'll make you fall in love with me.

Come to me Sweet Anthony.
For forever and eternity.
