​Tantalized

This song is by The Church and appears on the album Heyday (1985).

God, I've been asleep so long, I've been away
Back from software limbo the natives call today
I let their promises bind me
I let seductive logic blind me
I embraced a machine, I went through the routine
And I hid from the people who were trying to find me

Till the day comes when you realize
Otherwise you never care
Pandora's Box reveals a new surprise
Can't wait to see your eyes, now you've been tantalized

For a hundred and one voluptuous days I broke the law
The labyrinth was closing, so we panicked up a door
I let their wanton flesh obsess me
I felt their dreams and drugs assess me
I was hired and fired yet never inspired
Flattering, chattering words to impress me

All that glittered had me mesmerized
Otherwise, I would have dared
Guess the nature of our enterprise
Can't stop to sympathize, how you've been tantalized

I turned up in some harsh doomed city on another plane
I couldn't believe the room I got or the guests I entertained
I felt the dirty streets surround me
I let the buzzing swarm confound me
I gave money to ghosts, I insulted my hosts
I could never get off the stuff that spellbound me
