On an I monster kick tonight

Recommended listening: I Monster – Lust for a Vampyr (from A Dense Swarm of Ancient Stars, 2009)

But first, on earth as vampire sent,
Thy corse shall from its tomb be rent,
Then ghastly haunt thy native place,
And suck the blood of all thy race.
There from thy daughter, sister, wife,
At midnight drain the stream of life,
Yet loathe the banquet which perforce
Must feed thy livid living corse.
Thy victims ere they yet expire
Shall know the demon for their sire,
As cursing thee, thou cursing them,
Thy flowers are withered on the stem.
Wet with thine own best blood shall drip
Thy gnashing tooth and haggard lip;
Then stalking to thy sullen grave,
Go—and with Gouls and Afrits rave;
Till these in horror shrink away
From Spectre more accursed than they!
– Lord Byron, “The Giaour” (1813)

In the light of the moon
When the stars are in bloom
On a hot night in June
That’s when I call for you

I’ve been working the whole day long
Getting older while you stay young
Give me shelter, the night is dark
Live forever.

When you meet anyone you can find
Sink your teeth, your in love for one night
As you sleep in the day you are mine
I just want your love, so don’t waste my time

Take me now in the dark
I can’t wait, make your mark.

I’ve been working the whole day long
Getting older while you stay young
Give me shelter, the night is dark
Live forever…

When you meet anyone you can find
Sink your teeth, your in love for one night
As you sleep in the day you are mine
I just want your love, so don’t waste my time

By the light of the sun
I knew your time had come
I opened the box
And in just one go, you had gone

When you meet anyone you can find
Sink your teeth, your in love for one night
As you sleep in the day you are mine
I just want your love, so don’t waste my time

When you meet anyone you can find
Sink your teeth, your in love for one night
As you sleep in the day you are mine
I just want your love, so don’t waste my time
