"Temptation" as written by Salvatore P. Erna, Tony Rombola, James Shannon Larkin and Rob Merrill....
It crawls down deep inside without a pulse or a will to die
Not known to sympathize
And now it takes what it takes and let's the feelings suffocate
It's nothing new it'll get it's way
Another thing that I see is how it gets inside of me and tears away my life
It's time to love! it's time to hate!
It's coming face to face trying to desecrate
No time at all to break away
Temptation still got a hold on me
It's awake even when you sleep
It breathes without a heartbeat making me incomplete
And now I know what I know
Except the demon down below to surface through my mortal soul
And now it looks to be it's smiling as it's killing me day to day eye to eye

    General CommentThis song is about the singer's wanting to go back to the stuff he used to do (drinking, smoking, drugs) but he refuses to go and everytime he sees those things, the temptation builds for it.

    General CommentThe way I see it...simple bare bones, that bad habbits and or addictions are things that no matter what you do is the hardest thing to deal with, due to temtations. And it is hard to deal with a Beast like temtptation when there is no pluse or heartbeat to it..for how can ya kill something that is not alive yes?
