"Bacchanal" as written by and Fallon/sult/maines/gaster....
Temptation of Indulgence
Divides and conquers my mind
An elegy for fading youth
Welcome to mankind

If you provide the spleen
Then I'll provide the ideal
If I provide a puppet
Will you provide the strings?

Revel in the glory
Of a coming of age
Decades of suppression
Released in a rage

Have mercy
How can I seize the day when it is dusk?
You provide the pull, and I'll provide the thrust
Romance is nothing but a sack of lies
But it is truth which I have come to despise

Bacchanal
If I provide the scene
Will you provide the ordeal?
If I provide a crown
Will you provide a queen?

    General Commenti always thought this song was "god" talking to "the devil"
    ex:"..i provide the puppet...you provide the strings."="god" makes man while "the devil" pulls our strings,

    but viewed through a different filter it seems it may be about being infatuated
    ex: "temptation of indulgence" might be lust
    could be the man is the puppet and the woman pulls his strings.
