Mortal Temptation

 

Mortal temptation

Eternal damnation

Noble pursuits

Motivations therein

 

The engines that drive us

So ideals can survive us

What one sees as virtue

Another calls sin

 

When accounts have been reckoned

And heaven has beckoned

Will I meet the measure

Have I given my all

 

Having triumphed for trying

Thru a lifetime of dying

With my works testifying

I will stand tall
