The storms from the gods make us
Perish with hunger
Starvation and drought
Are unleashed on this earth
Reap what you sow
From your greed and our treasures
Far more than we need
Now far more than we're worth

Nella tentazione
Cercando lagloria
Il prezzoda pagare
E'la caduta dell'uomo

How can we live
In despair and in sorrow
Our children are lost
With all that we love
Plague spreading forth
To lay waste to our culture
Civilization's demise from above

Nella tentazione
Cercando lagloria
Il prezzado pagare
E'la caduta dell'uomo

This world revolves and I foretell
The end of man resides in Hell
For you can see that in my heart
We will depart

Nella tentazione
Cercando lagloria
Il prezzoda pagare
E'la caduta dell'uomo

Nella tentazione
(Into temptation)
Cercando lagloria
(In search of glory)
Il prezzoda pagare
(The price we pay)
E'la caduta dell'uomo
(The fall of man)

    Perhaps it is an assertion that todays world with cellphones, video games, computer everything is destroying man by desensitizing us to violence and mayhem and the end of our old ways are near (thus the italian and church, plus apocalyptic vibe... Or maybe it is just a dramatic song meaning nothing more than a great dramatic riff. Revelation or just jammin'. You decide.
