"Tempted" as written by Marty Stuart and Paul Kennerley....
The surface is transparent
Stranger here in me
Filter through like sun
Future I am past

Though your hunger feels the same
I am wanting give me breath
I am truth you can't explain
I am treasure I am dust
I am water I am rain

I am tempted here
I am the hunter I am the prey
Through your ten thousand years
Every moment remains

I am future I am past
I am haunted I am blessed
And I'm filtered through like sun
Until your moment comes undone
I am hunter I am prey
I am water I am rain

Some light, some rain flows through me
Some light, some rain flows through me

I am tempted here
I am the hunter I am the prey
Through your ten thousand years
Every moment remains
I am tempted here
I am the hunter I am the prey
Through your ten thousand years
Every moment remains

Lies the night conscious one
I am earth I am water I am ground
I am wanting give me breath

It's all transparent
I am the stranger here
It's all transparent
Just the same as fiction
And the truth you can't explain

Though your hunger feels the same
I am wanting give me

Some light, some rain flows through me
Some light, some rain flows through me

I am tempted here
I am the hunter I am the prey
Through your ten thousand years
Every moment goes astray

Give me breath

    General CommentWhether or not kaRIN wrote this about vampires or not, that is how I perceive this song. I see a lot of vampiric leanings, but not the 'oh I want to suck your blood' kind. More like the mindset or spirituality of being a vampire. That's my interpretation of the song, if you feel different by all means please do comment and elighten me. It's one of my most fave songs and Collide is my favorite band. =^.^=
