Originally I thought that I wouldn't touch this song for ages after writing up the chorus and putting it in my scraps folder, but somehow it came to life and an earlier version was originally released for the FAMCE competition over at SheezyArt. For something that I was so unsure about it turned out surprisingly well, and even though it has a lot more of an aggressive sound than most of my other songs, I really like this one.
It's something of a revisit of the themes of Silicon Dream and Born From A Wish. The metaphor is about an area of the mind that holds every thought or fantasy that you feel guilty about and want to hide from the world. The specifics of it... you can interpret for yourself. =) It doesn't end "cleanly" as my intention is to go right into the next song from the end of this file. - DavidN

Song #91 - Temple of Rust Track 5 of "Machine World" Written by David K Newton Completed on 27/7/2007 Length: 4 minutes 45 seconds davidknewton_gmail.com http://wired.st-and.ac.uk/~wong/modsite/ --- I know there's a place to run to Somewhere in the earth Far below my outside form And hidden from the world Every detail perfect But I kept it all from you And every time you hurt me I built another room - to keep them Thirty-two angels in my hands to guide me Thirty-two rooms with the names carved above Thirty-one chances to prove you're the right one An altar of cruelty is built from my love By my hands I feel like I'm betraying you With what my mind creates But still I will retreat there When my will begins to break A hive of guilty pleasure Sealed outside the world's view And every time I looked at you I built another room Thirty-two angels in my hands to guide me Thirty-two rooms with the names carved above Thirty-one chances to prove you're the right one An altar of cruelty is built from my love And this temple of rust is a sign of my lust A place for my shame and my sin This frustration inside, the emotions I hide They build up the world within In the temple of rust Beautiful corrosion As more arrive here below A place you wish to dream for But can't let anyone know Harvesting your mind maze I'm watching what's come before To find the perfect pieces The elements for the whole The key to my kingdom is kept in my hands Protected from harm and the hate you demand Always with me, to be lived on command My dream ends here With the thirty-two angels in my hands to guide me Thirty-two rooms with the names carved above I'll guide you through darkness and reach for the centre An altar of cruelty is built from my love And this temple of rust is a sign of my lust A place for my shame and my sin This frustration inside, the emotions I hide They build up the world within A heart full of anger for no one to see It's all locked away In the temple of rust
