"Temptation Dice" as written by Kyle Falconer, Kieren Webster, Peter Reilly and Steven Morrison....
People are always saying how do you do to you, and they don't know what's on your mind.
You'll get fat running on the beaten track, coz dice can change your mind.
Well I rolled it a long the floor one night and have you ever been a bad bad man?
Caught up in the beat she had the devils dancing feet, as the tears flew to lover's eyes.
The same thing happens every morning and I know the reason why,
The sun goes down and the council lights go on and everybody's sky high with sedatives and authority to cry.

People are always saying how do you do to me, they need to speak what's on their mind
You roll the dice and you don't think twice if this can change your life
Well I rolled a high and it made me feel alive I tell you man I nearly died
It made me think what's worse broken promise or my bones, and the bruising of my pride knocked me off my side.

The same thing happens every evening and I know the reason why
The sun goes down and the council lights go on and everybody's left standing round the fire with the same old song.

You've got to change
You've got to change
You've got to change
You've got to change
Don't let them tell you that you don't matter, life's more than a chip shop wrapper!
And then they don't like what you do.

People are always saying how do you do to me, but they don't know what's on my mind
You'll get fat running on the beaten track, this dice can change your life
And my distress is overshadowed with every evening, now I've found the will to try.
The master of disaster left the room the morning after that boy has risen away today.
Now the sun comes up and now the weekends at your feet, son this live served you up one hell of a treat.

We roll we dance we duck we dive we twist and tilt
We roll we dance we duck we twist and tilt
roll we dance we duck we twist and tilt
We roll we dance we duck we twist and tilt

And I'll never do the dance of guilt again
Oh oh you're my best friend
oh you're my best friend
To the bitter end

    General CommentMy guess is this

    You get lazy acting like everyone else. A girl cheated on her boyfriend because everybody is just out of their heads. "everybody's sky high with sedatives and authority to cry" this song is about the guy she cheated on because he was upset and so he was trying to vent to someone else. the guy she cheated on her boyfriend with was friends with her boyfriend and he felt bad that he did cause he promised that he wouldn't and he lied about it too. He tries giving the guy a pep talk then he's forgiven.

    I'm probably wrong haha this is just a guess
