"Temptation" as written by and Billy Joel....
Driven by restrained desire
I want what I need
Shaking as her sex takes hold
I've lost all control

Temptation
Temptation

Drowning in a sea of rage
I taste the embrace
Helpless as it steals my soul
I've lost all control

Temptation
It never lets you down
Temptation
One foot in the ground

We exist in a world
Where the fear of illusion is real
And we cling to the past
To deny and confuse the ideal
Once inside we conceive and
Believe in a God we can't feel

Destined by a fate so cruel
And drugged to delight
Laughing as these lies unfold
I've lost all control

Temptation
It never lets me down
Temptation
One foot in the ground
Temptation
You satisfy my soul
Temptation
I've lost all control

    General CommentI first heard this about 8 years ago in Road Rash 3D for the PS1, and it fit the game perfectly. As I found out years later upon getting the Transmission CD itself, it fits real life pretty well, also. One of the band's best pieces of work to date.
