lyrics

Temptation (will bring me down)

My rough voice cries for life
In the depths of my will
It screams inside my head
Your voice gives me the urge
To eat pieces of glass
To throw myself on you
It´s fire
Desire
Barbed-wire

Your so sweet smile
Your touch´s a wile
Turning me vile

Chorus:
Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, bring me down!
Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, down, down, down...

Love is a distraction
A kind of addiction
A lack of proper medication
Love makes bodies forget
What´s pleasure and what´s pain
That´s why we lay on nails
It´s Mundane
It´s Insane
Our Bane

The serpent´s bite
Demonic rite
Vicious delight

Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, bring me down!
Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, down, down, down...


Sin and sanity collide
In poetic paradox
The surrendering of my pride
(The surrendering of my pride!)
I am the first offender
Convicted by my essence
Suffering and splendor
(Suffering and splendor!)

The same hand that caress
Will be the one to rip apart
To backstab then save my life
(To backstab then save my live)

All the sins I cannot confess
They inspire my sick art
They are my pen, my voice, my knife.
(They are my pen, my voice, my knife)

Your absence is the scar
That carves me into a man
Reminding me that I am human
I kiss your poisoned lips
Worship your baroque face
Put my life in the palm of your hands

Cynical destiny
Dirty devotion
We´re bonded to each other ´till death do us part

And deep within
We laugh in sin
We cry and grin

Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, bring me down!
Temptation Will bring me down – bring me down, down, down, down...
