Music and Lyrics by Alan Alexander III

in the middle of the city in the middle of the night
all your sympathy and pity is not enough to set it right
from the wino in the gutter to the hooker on the street
even in the dead of winter you can not avoid the heat

temptation is everywhere

little suzy went to college she was gonna be be a vet
she was looking for some knowledge but how soon did she forget
first the pills then the powders then the needle in her vein
now she's working on her masters in the psychology of pain

temptation is everywhere

what's the moral of my story what's the meaning of my tale
through the pain and the glory temptation will prevail
if you want to dodge a bullet if you want to get it right
better watch out for temptation or you're gonna loose the fight

temptation is everywhere
