"Temptation" as written by and Billy Joel....
Down on my knees I look up at the sky Here I am again although I don't know why Life is pain I know this in my heart I guess it's always been that way from the start This contemplation sets my soul afire Too many decisions that I can't decide I don't know what I'm gonna do... The things I've seen, places I've been Always told me "Stay away from sin" Now I could try and do right, but it always turns out wrong I guess that if I didn't, wouldn't have no fun Sometimes I try to set my sights up higher But if there's a heaven I'm bound for the fire Temptation...

    General Commentit's pretty self-explanatory really...
    he's questioning purpose in life...
    his entire life he was taught christian values and what the "right" way to live is..
    but he doesn't agree with that and has lived / lives the life he wants to live..
    and at the end he just says, sometimes he questions the answers, but he is who he is.. and if there really is a heaven, then he'll be in hell.
