I am the vampire in your life, causing pain and supplying strife.
Sucking the core from your soul, taking your life and consuming it whole.
No cross or spike nor illumination light, will help you against my worry, my pain, my plight.
I am the vampire who takes control, contorting and reshaping your helpless soul.
Hold your bible close, say your prayers, your in this nightmare now, with all my cares.
The vampire you see is not me, it is a mirage of the man I used to be.
Feed I will on your light, consuming and fading your inner might.
But stay strong, resist my will, fight back and battle still.
The night is long but so is the day.
Have faith in me.
Set me free.
Bring back the man, I used to be.
