"Time For Temptation" as written by and Simon Le Bon Warren Cuccurullo....
Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do

(good, good, good, good temptation)
Why you chasing a lost religion of guilty feelings
-that belong in yesterday?
Spy the preachers a politician, he carries the cross like a gun
- whip you into shape
Here's the rub, now, no secret hours locked in the backroom if you
- come together right
Check your vision and push it out there
- you make the question, define what it's all about


(chorus)

(oh) oh...
With chains or heaven across your shoulder,
A slave for promotion to the afterlife
The boss gets fat while you just get older, here comes a mission
- set to put you right

Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do - oh
Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do

(no damnation...)

Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do - oh
Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do - oh
Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
(good, good, good, good temptation)
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do
(good, good, good, good temptation)
Time for temptation, what you see is there for you
(good, good, good, good temptation)
Time for temptation, no damnation for what you do
(good, good, good, good temptation)
Time for temptation

    General Comment"here's the rub now "

    Ah, Hamlet. Just like the line "We carry this mortal coil" from Breath After Breath. Now let's see, does that allusion fit? I know it's a common saying now anyway.

    The lyrics sound interesting. I know Simon seems to be wary of religion. I think he has faith but that's different than religion.
