Silently they stalk the night
Trash can barrel firelight
Shows their victims' dying fright
Evidence of their rebirth
Flowing blood to slake their thirst
Mortals' deaths, malicious mirth
So few are we who choose to fight
And stalk the stalkers of the night

Blood frenzied they roam the street
Flitting shadows so discreet
Woe to humans that they meet
On destruction they are bent
Many souls to hell they've sent
Down the block they caught my scent
Some men like me, we choose to fight
Death to the stalkers of the night

Flash of silver, slash of fang
Knife, stake, cross, I fight in vain
Then a blossom purest pain
Sudden blackness clouds my sight
I awake to blinding light
Sickened, shaken, cursed bite
An urge so strong I cannot fight
I stalk my prey now in the night...

Hey, sea. You gotta stop watching those late night Dracula movies! You set the mood very well. Nice job.
