Woe to me, battered man
Raise the monolith
Deitize my spirit rise
Like days the world forgets - down the

Drain - laid to lame
A fool-ass hearty bliss
Borderline suicide,
Celebrate before my death

Your promised land divide,
That's why the world lies.
I give up.
That's enough. I give up.

I'm underneath my life.
Dog in heat, beware the street
It's there you'll meet your end
Poverty is not for me,

But I'll take her back again
To prove a point,
To laugh it off, to cross you off my path,
Grip the night, pull the cord,

A much inspired wrath.
Your promised land divide,
That's where the world lies.
I give up.

That's enough. I give up.
I'm underneath my life.
Carry me back from the war
And from the lord.

    My InterpretationYou are all wrong. This is not about his heroin addiction since he wrote Temptations Wings a long time before he started using. He released a 3 track demo in 1991 . From my aspect I'm guessing that these "Temptation Wings" make him choose the wrong decisions. In the part
    To hell with I miss you
    I said I 'd do it alone
    Ripping apart from you
    A broken vision to call my own
    He's obviously saying that his temptation or curiosity take him away from his loved ones and he's convinced that his decision (vision) is the true one.
    I bury my head with frustration
    And I look at others and wonder why
    I'm feeding my cancer
    A broken vision that stole my sight
    The more he feeds his curiosity the more curious he gets or tempted. After some time feeding this "cancer" he doesn't even see the right decisions ( broken vision that stole my sight)
    This may not be Phi's point of view, but this is just my opinion and I can assure you this isn't about heroin.
