Temptation (x4)

Time stands still
The whisper in my ear
The spirit within
A struggle destined to fail

[CHORUS] Infested thoughts
Spirit contracts
Lust dominates
Fallen once again

Frustration accumulates
Anger towards the fraud of the world
Anger towards the lack of self-control
Condemnation, immediate repentance

How much can You take?
The disappointment of my deceit
Pain, disobedience to Your will

Of my weaknesses I'm desperately aware
Do I even dare to repent again?
Why would You endure this pain?

Prisoner of filthy chains
Unclean, unclean

Help me, God!
God, set me free!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who gives in to temptation. They get mad at themselves and the messed up world that we live in. They're aware of their mistakes and ashamed of them. They ask God to set them free of the bondage of sin.

    General CommentGreat Song!
    I think this song is about sexual temptation, and about how the person is mad that he has given into temptation. He is crying out to God for forgiveness.
