If at times you feel drained or confused after spending time with someone, it might be time to get out the holy water and garlic. Their kind will suck the living daylights right out of you...


Moonlight casts the same dark shadow on my wall.
I hear your footsteps and I feel the midnight call.
Doors and windows locked up tight against the chill...
I'm not taking any chances!

You said that he was evil, wicked, mean, and cruel;
Your back against the wall, would I please help you through.
All you needed was a healthy substitute;
Someone else to sink your fangs in.

Get away from my door I can't take it no more!
Her words say "Sleep. Just look deep in my eyes."
Where is the sun? How long can I run and hide?
Night after night, a vampire right at my window!

I tried to help you in your time of misery
But all you wanted was a way of using me.
Now I see right through your selfish little plan...
Did you think that you could fool me?

Somewhere, somehow, sometime he's gonna find the truth.
A wooden stake is all he'll need to run you through.
What you gonna do when there's no one left to bleed?
Unprotected in the daylight...

(Chorus repeat)
