Overture / Carpe Noctem

Overture

Carpe Diem: latin for seize the day…
Carpe Noctem: latin for seize the night…

[- instrumental -]

Carpe Noctem

A Vampire:
Come with me and bless the night
Let the darkness be your salvation
Curse the day–escape the light
Break the chain of imagination

Come with me and seize the night
Now’s the time for some inspiration
Leave the day and loose the light
No taboos only new sensations....

In the shadows of the city
A hero’s waiting for the call
And all the devils are waking up
And all the angels start to fall

In the shadows of the city
They’re dying for a thrill
They’re going out over the edge
They’re moving in for the kill

You gotta curse the day: it’s nothing but a merciless light
So open up your arms and then you get down on your knees
You suck in all the darkness and you’re ready now to seize
Seize the night
Seize the night

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!
Exsultate Kyrie! Pie Agne, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Sanctus! Sanctus! Exultate!

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!

Day of anger, Lord. Free me, O Lord!
Day of anger, Lord. Give rest, O Lord! (etc.)

Rejoice in the Lord. Merciful Lamb, O Lord!
Day of anger, Lord. Holy! Holy! Rejoice!

Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last
Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last

Bless the night
Seize the night
Seize the night right now....

Let your dreams out of their cages
Every passion and desire
Let your visions be outrageous
Set your fantasies on fire

Everything will be permitted
There’ll be nothing left to fear
I got the magic in your body
Your inner thoughts will disappear

You gotta curse the day: it’s nothing but a merciless light
So open up your arms and then you get down on your knees
You suck in all the darkness and you’re ready now to seize
Seize the night
Seize the night

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!
Exsultate Kyrie! Pie Agne, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Sanctus! Sanctus! Exultate!

Dies irae, Kyrie! Libera me, Domine!
Dies irae, Kyrie! Requiem da, Domine!

Day of anger, Lord. Free me, O Lord!
Day of anger, Lord. Give rest, O Lord! (etc.)

Rejoice in the Lord. Merciful Lamb, O Lord!
Day of anger, Lord. Holy! Holy! Rejoice!

Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last
Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last

Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last
Bless the night, before it has the chance to pass
Seize the night, you do what it takes to make it last....

Angels Arise

Sarah: Angels arise as night must fall
And radiant eyes stare down on us all
If the powers that be, be beyond call
Then angels arise as the night must surely fall

And for every pit of darkness
There’s a light so purely divine
And I ask you to protect me
From that gasps and shudders and those shivers down my spine....

Sarah, Nadja and Zsa Zsa: Angels arise as night must fall
And all knowing eyes stare on us all
If the powers that be, be beyond call
Then angels arise as the night must surely fall

There are things that must be magic
There’s no explaining why and how
And there’s every sign that once upon a time
Is starting here and now....

And there’s every sign that once upon a time
Is starting right here and now....

Original Sin

Von Krolock:
I’ve been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all the old ones till they’ve all been done in
Now I’m just looking, then I’m gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin

I’ve waiting for you since you’ve been born
I’d watch you secretly but not for long
And since I know all your dreams I understand what you need
And when I call you you must go where I lead
Your dreams are so hungry–it’s time now feed

So I bless you with my curse
And encourage your endeavor
You’ll be better when you’re worse
You must die to live forever

I will show you the depths of the night
We can never go wrong together
I will take you to the end of the line
My eyes are like a shadow on you...

And since I know all your dreams I understand what you need
And when I call you you must go where I lead
Your dreams are so hungry–it’s time now feed....

(There’s Never Been) A Night Like This

Alfred: A girl as beautiful as she I have never seen
A girl as beautiful as she
Sarah:A boy as beautiful as he
Alfred:So disarming
Sarah:Charming
Both:I have never ever seen

Alfred: There’s never been a night like this
Since my life began
The thing I’d do for just one kiss
I might never understand

Both: I’m too excited to count sheep
I’m awake, yet I dream
My heart’s ignited with a deep burning ache
And I dream, a lovely dream
Sarah:Lovely dream

Chagal: I’d wish I have a night like this
‘Cause it makes me sad, oh Magda
A maid as beautiful as she
I have never, ever had

Magda: I’ll never have a night like this
And it makes me sad
Rebecca:I used to have some nights like this
Magda:This emptiness, not happiness
Rebecca:Now I miss what we once had
Magda:That’s all I’ve ever had

Chagal, Alfred and Sarah: I am delighted
Heaven sent you to start something new
I try to fight it but I can’t
For my heart, it longs for you
Fantasies come true

Abronsius: We’re making history tonight, make the world aware
Magda:Or despair

Rebecca:A man as lecherous as he
Chagal and Alfred:A girl as beautiful as she
Sarah:A boy as singular as he
Magda:A more appealing [something or other]
Alfred, Sarah and Chagal: So delightful
Rebecca: Frightful
Alfred, Sarah, Chagal, Rebecca and Magda: I have never seen

Rebecca: From the day I was born I was dreaming
And I’ve been doin’ it ever since
Rebecca and Magda: But I’ve learned as I grow
And there’s one thing I know:
You gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince!
You gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince!

Chagal, Alfred and Sarah: I’m too delighted
I can’t keep cool and calm when you’re near
I’m so excited I can’t sleep

Magda: Doesn’t he understand
The only rendezvous he’ll have tonight
Is with his left hand
I’m so disgusted can’t sleep...

Alfred and Sarah: Lord, if I ever fall in love
Let it be just for me
Lord, if I ever fall in love
Let it be someone as glorious as she/he
And eternally
I’ll wait breathlessly
Let it be....

Rebecca: I wish I never fell in love
With a fool like him
I should have known the day we met
The sleazy things that he would do
But I still need him
And he still needs me
Let it be....

Chagal: After so many years
The tears run stronger than laughter
Purgatory, laster stories
Of my marriage
But I still need her
And she needs me
Let it be....

Magda: There is no one for me
I’ll spend the rest of my life
Just lonely and empty
Lonely
Empty
Let it be....

Invitation To the Ball

[knocking on door]

Sarah: Hello?
Hello? Is somebody there?

Von Krolock A good nightmare comes so rarely
While ordinary dreams are so easy to find
A good nightmare comes so rarely
I’ll show you yours, if you show me mine...

Von Krolock:It’s me!
Sarah:Who are you?
Von Krolock:Oh no, we have a-rendezvous’ed, remember?
Sarah:Remind me?
Von Krolock:The total eclipse of la luna?
Sarah:Yes, yes, I remember something...
Von Krolock:And your birthday ball... at my castle
Sarah:A ball?
Von Krolock:By invitation only...

Von Krolock Our love is a secret
Our love is a word
Something so silenced
But perfectly heard

Our love is a whisper
Our love is a breeze
Something better left unspoken
Like the song of the leaves on a dying tree

A good nightmare comes so rarely
Those pretty dreams have already taken too much of your time
A good nightmare comes so rarely
I’ll show you yours, if you show me mine...

Von Krolock:So will you come to my ball? To dance, in red velvet boots?
Sarah:Red velvet boots?
Von Krolock:Do you want to come?
Sarah:Well I, well I, I don’t know...
Von Krolock:You pathetic litle peasant!
Do you think I have time for miserable nothing like you?
Ah... I’m sorry, I have nothing but time for you...
Listen...
I can your heartbeat from here
So, sluggish, like mud, like sludge
Only eighty beats per minute!
Make it run faster, Sarah!
Make it match mine...
Can your hear my blood?
It’s one hundred and eighty beats per minute...
Listen... BOO!
Ah, you look scared...
Sarah:I, I am scared
Von Krolock:It feels good, doesn’t it?

Von Krolock Sarah, you and I are not so different
We’re trapped every day in a box
And you’re stuck day and night, in this room, in this inn
Every way out is fitted with locks

But the time to desire has arived
And the choice must be made very soon
Take a look at the sky, there’s a signal for you
Behold the bloodshot moon!
Behold the bloodshot moon!

You can simply stay here, for a lifetime or more
With a face like a wet piece of bread
You work, and you slave ’til you’re fat, old and grey
And perhaps you’d be better
And perhaps you’d be better
And perhaps you’d be better off... dead!

Von Krolock:If you don’t believe me ask my friends!
Sarah:Nadja! Zsa Zsa!
Nadja:Hi Sar’h!
Zsa Zsa:Life at the castle is such fun!
Nadja:You have to come, Sar’h!
Zsa Zsa:The cloak!
Nadja:The caskets!
Zsa Zsa:Just full of jewels
Nadja:And the music
Zsa Zsa:And wait ’til you get a load of the food!

Von Krolock, Nadja and Zsa Zsa: You can be anything that you want to be there
Your God and His angels may care - but I won’t
You can do anything that you want to do there

The devil may care
The devil may care
The devil may care but I don’t

The devil may care
The devil may care
The devil may care but I don’t

Von Krolock:Listen Sarah, your heartbeat is faster now!
Yes!
One hundred beats per minute!
I think you’re catching on...
Sarah:Could I bring a friend to this ball? You see, I’ve just met some...
Von Krolock:You’ve met nobody... but me...
There’s an evil after you, Sarah!
Sarah:Evil? What evil?
Von Krolock:The worst of evils: banality... boredom... Heidelberg.
So come to me tomorrow night.
At the total eclipse of the moon, you’ll get the gift you deserve, and more
For what do you have here? Girls?
Zsa Zsa:Not enough...
Von Krolock:Not enough...

Nadja and Zsa Zsa: There’s not enough to make your boredom go away
There’s not enough to light your tired eyes
There’s not enough to put some fire in a dreary day

Von Krolock, Nadja and Zsa Zsa: Everything that they taught you
Was nothing but lies
Everything that they bought you
Was nothing but bribes

Von Krolock: But I know that you want more:

All you wanted was a piece of the night
Now tell me where are you to go?
For you whole life, you must know
You’ve been an angel
Don’t you wonder what it’s like to be damned?
To be damned?

Sometimes we need the boogeyman!
Sometimes we need the boogeyman!

One hundred and twenty beats!

The thrill of the chase
The heat of the fire
The howls of the winds
Are at your command

Look in my eyes and what do you see?
Sometimes we need the boogeyman!

One hundred and forty beats!

The beauty of darkness
The magic of light
The endless adventures
Miraculous trips

Look at my face now, and what do you see?
Read my apocalypse!

One hundred eighty!

This is your chance!
This is your time!
Break all the chains
And give me your hand!

Sometimes it’s right there in front of your eyes!
Sometimes we need the boogeyman!
Sometimes we need the boogeyman!
Sometimes we need the boogeyman!

[knocking on door]

Chagal:Sarah? Sarah? Are you there?
Von Krolock:Will you come to me?
Sarah:Yes, I’ll come
Chagal:Sarah? Open the door!
Von Krolock:Swear to me
Sarah:I swear it

Chagal:(sings underneath)
A good nightmare comes so rarely
I’ll show you yours, if you show me mine...

Von Krolock:On your fathers grave
Sarah:My father isn’t dead yet!
Von Krolock:Swear to me! On your fathers grave!
Sarah:I’ll swear it on my father’s grave. I’ll come.
Von Krolock:Until tomorrow then, and be.. punctual
Nadja:By Sar’h...

Von Krolock:Ciao Belle....

Braver Than We Are / Say a Prayer

Braver Than We Are

Alfred: I will never sleep, every night I’ll be with you
There is so much on your mind that I don’t know
Feels like I’m on fire and the flame has no mercy
The fever’s never ending, all it seems to do is grow

Sarah: There are times I want to got run
Times I want to hide
Things I haven’t done
Alfred:Things I cast aside
So many things to try
Alfred:So many things denied
There is no denying
Alfred:Sooner or later
I knew I could run now
Alfred:Sooner or later
Has finally come now

How can we fly
Like the angels in the sacred air?
Higher and higher
Above the world and all it’s cares

Alfred: Everybody’s ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And I wish my life was shining like a star
But the fears are never very far, and…

We always seem
So much braver than we ever are
We always dream
We’d be braver but we never are

Both: I need so much
I need your touch

Sarah: I am sick of this place and this cold
I don’t want to get old without living
I am tired doing just what I’m told
I want more than anyone’s giving

Alfred: There are so many wounds
Sarah:We can’t heal
So many nightmares
Sarah:Are turning too real
So much of paradise lost
Sarah:And you added the cost
But there’s nothing to be sorry for
Sarah:Now we can have so much more
Now I can be close to you
Sarah:Nothing that we’re scared to do

Both: Why should we cry
If we can’t be what we might have been?
No questions why
We should let the future now begin

Alfred: You see me as so very strong
But the doubts are never so very far
And I wish my life was shining like a star
Both: But the tears are never very far!
The fears are never very far!

And we always seem
So much braver than we ever are
We’d always dream
We’d be braver but we never are

Let’s run away
Go too far…

Sarah: Sometimes it’s the flesh and the way it seems to yearn
For all the magic of the single perfect touch
Sometimes it’s the soul and it’s waiting for salvation
You’ll know when you get it: there can never be too much

There are times I gotta run
Times I gotta hide
Things I’ve left undone
Things I cast aside

So many things to try
So many things denied

If I ever tell you the truth would you ever believe me?
Show me the proof, I’m so scared that you’d leave me

You think I fly
Like an angel without any cares
Higher and higher
As if I’m breathing sacred air

Everybody’s ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the fears are never very far
The nightmare’s never very far

And we always seem
So much braver than we ever are
We always dream
We’d be braver but we never are

Let’s run away
Let’s go too far....

Say a Prayer

Company: Say a prayer for those who crawl
Say a prayer for those who run
Say a prayer so after and all
There’s a better life to come

Say a prayer for those alone
Say a prayer for those apart
All the golden boys and girls
The crusaders of the heart

Say a prayer for all the lost
Say a prayer for the unborn
Say a prayer for all the young
It takes a fire to keep them warm

Say a prayer for those obsessed
Say a prayer for those enslaved
Say a prayer to beat the drums
From the cradle to the grave

Say a prayer for all the saints
Say a prayer for all the sins
Let the dancing never end
Let the future now begin

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
Make us braver than we are

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
Make us braver than we are

Make us braver than we are
Make us braver than we are
Make us braver than we are....

Finale Act One: Come With Me (excerpt)

Von Krolock:
Come with me and we know love
We’ll show you and we will teach you
Take my hand and learn from us
We’ll touch you and we will reach you

Come with me and we know love
We’ll show you and we will teach you
Take my hand and learn from us
We’ll touch you and we will reach you

And you’ll know love forever
And you will live forevermore
Forevermore....

Vampires In Love (Total Eclipse of the Heart)

If light were dark and dark were light
The moon a black hole in the blaze of night
A raven’s wing, as bright as tin
Then you my love would be darker then sin....

Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit lonely but I don’t know what I miss
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit desperate and I wonder what it is I desire
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes

Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Every now and then I hear a voice
Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Every now and then I hear…

Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit helpless and I’m lying like a child in your arms
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit curious what it’s like to be a woman and free
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I get a little bit terrified but then I see you coming for me

Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Every now and then I fall apart
Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Every now and then I fall apart

Von Krolock: And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever

And we’ll only be making it right
‘Cause we’ll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
My love is like a shadow on you all of the time

I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
Sarah: We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

Both: I really need you tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight

Sarah: Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do–a total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can say–a total eclipse of the heart....

Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I think I better run away from you before it’s too late
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: But every now and then I know I must go when you leave me I would go with you through the gates of hell
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I know there’s no one in the universe as magical and wond’rous as you
Von Krolock: Turn around…
Sarah: Every now and then I know there’s nothing any better–and there’s nothing that I just wouldn’t do

Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Every now and then I hear a voice
Von Krolock: Turn around, Bright Eyes…
Sarah:Now I know I never have a choice

Both: And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you’ll only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever

And we’ll only be making it right
‘Cause we’ll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on you all of the time

Von Krolock: I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
Sarah: We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

Both: I really need you tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight

Sarah: Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
Both: There’s nothing I can do–a total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can do–a total eclipse of the heart

Sarah: There’s nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart…

Von Krolock: I’ve waiting for you since you’ve been born
I’d watch you secretly but not for long
And since I know all your dreams I understand what you need
And when I call you you must go where I lead
Your dreams are so hungry–it’s time now feed....

For Sarah

Alfred:
There are ghosts in the air
Evil eyes in the darkness as I search, for Sarah
Demons lurk everywhere
But however much they scare me I will not be deterred

I’ll be tough, I’ll be sly
There is nothing I would not do or be, for Sarah
I will steal, I will lie
There is nothing I won’t try to find and save her

There’s a dream, known as home
How I long to go back but I must stay, for Sarah
Through these nightmares I roam
Desperate, shattered, lonely but I must not give up!

I will slash, I will burn!
There is nothing I would do or be, for Sarah
There’s no scars I won’t earn
I’ll do anything it takes to find and hold her

I’ll be bold, I’ll be brave
There is nothing I would not be for you, for Sarah
I would go to the grave
Like a sacrificial angel who will not let you fall!

I will fight all my fears
There is nothing I would not do for you, oh Sarah
Take this blood, sweat and tears
Take this sacrificial angel who will save you!

Sarah....

Eternity (Ewigkeit)

Vampires:
Ewigkeit ist Langeweile auf Dauer
Ein trostloser Kreislauf, kein Anfang, kein Schluss
Denn stets wiederholt sich dasselbe von vorne
Kein Jubel, kein Entsetzen

Nur die öde
Blöde
Ewigkeit

Von Tortur keine Spur
Immer nur diese beschiss’ne Ewigkeit

Fort mit dem Stein über’m Abgrund des Schreckens!
Raus aus dem Grauen ins Glitzern der Welt!
Bald lähmt unser Gift die Gehirne der Menschen
Bald sind wir die Herren dieser Erde

Es werde Nacht!

Weg mit dem Fels vor der Höhle der Schatten!
Raus aus den Gräbern ins Leben der Stadt!
Hinein mit der Angst in die Seele der Menschen!
Bald steh’n sie am Ende aller Zweifel

Wir stürzen sie hinab!
Hinab!
Hinab!
Hinab!
Hinab!

A Vampire’s Confession (God Has Left the Building)

Von Krolock:
Forgive me Father, for I will sin!
Over and over again, sin without end
Amen!

And can there be anything as incandescently sad
As those most tragic of times when good vampires go bad?

So many victims washing on the shore
An ocean of pure tears
So many pleas for mercy, howls of pain!
Intoxicating fears!

I use my body just like a bandage
I used her body just like a wound
I used his body just like a wound

And I’ll never know where they all disappeared
But I can see them rising up out of my memories now
Just like the demons rising up from a tomb!

GOD HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!!

Confession of a Vampire (The Insatiable Appetite)

Von Krolock:
Well alright, no stars tonight
The moon must hide, can’t bear to see my face
So many moons have passed
So many suns gone down
Too much blood under the bridge
Too many worlds turned upside down....

The skies were pure and the fields were green
The fading summer, sixteen seventeen
The first time I ever drew blood
She was such a beautiful and innocent child

She never knew my soul was cursed for good
I fought to overcome my thirst–I thought I could
But when I kissed her lips and I had no control
And the Furies all ran wild

And when I grasped for life
I always killed the things for which I yearned
I wish to be aflame and reduced to ashes
But I have never burned

I long to fly in total freedom
But yet these chains keep dragging me down
I want to be an angel or the Devil himself!
But I am nothing but a creature
Longing for the things I can’t have

And the split goes through my very soul
It’s a wound that never mends
Our desires are elusive and the hunger never ends

When the world has drawn its final breath
And extinguished all the lights
There’ll be nothing left but a lifeless wasteland
And an endless appetite
Nothing left but a soundless heartbeat
And a ruthless appetite

The preacher’s daughter let me in her room
In seventeen thirty-two to love me was her doom
With her silken blood I wrote a poem of love
Upon her ivory skin

And the bashful page of Napoleon the Great
In eighteen hundred thirteen he stood at the gate
When I recall his body I can’t help but think
To consume, it was a sin

So many victims washing on the shores
An ocean of pure tears
So many pleas for mercy, howls of pain
Intoxicating fears!

I use my body just like a bandage
I used their bodies just like a wound
And I’ll never know where they disappear
But I can see them rising up out of my memories now
Just like the demons rising up from a tomb!

And there is no way ever to apologize, repent or make amends
No release and no redemption: the hunger never ends

There are those who believe in science
And those who believe in art
There are those who believe in power and wealth
Or in love and matters of the heart
There are those who believe in various gods
In nations and knowledge
In Hell and in Heaven
The powers of darkness
The assumption of the light

But I believe in just one God:
That of endless and insatiable
Immoral and destructible
And all-consuming appetite

There is a prediction that I now will make
And I’m sure I will be right:
When the next millennium finally comes
The god most worshiped in this world
Will be the god of appetite....

Finale Act Two: The Dance of the Vampires

Abronsius:
Now we are safe, we have made it after all
I’ve been smarter than the fiends of the night
The ghost of Königsberg shall eat their hearts out
For they must admit that I have been right!
Oh, I’m so smart!

Once and for all I have proven beyond doubt
That these vampires are real and alive
They believe in the power of blood
They’ve got the bite that cut in the skin like a knife
Oh, that’s smart

But we have got reasons and sense, they cannot focus
Since they’re out of the dark from whence they came
We’re very sure of our goals and know which path we must take
After all we are wide-awake–the human race is in motion
The world will never be the same

Why am I zee only one whiz an accent?

A Vampire:
Go break a heart or your heart will be broken
Go betray your friend or else get betrayed
Grab your chance before it’s too late
If you’re frightening you must not be afraid

Better to batter than to be beaten
Use your elbows or get jostled yourself
Better to eat than to find you’ve been eaten
No one cares for you so care for yourself

Now our life in the darkness is over
We’ll be dancing in the rings of the sun
We are sure of our goals and know what path we must take
We don’t live, we don’t die–but we are wide-awake

We are in motion
And soon the world will be won
Before you know it’s begun!

So all of you out there–watch out!
How we are going advance–watch out!
We got the world in our hands–watch out!
You gonna see the vampires dance!
You gonna see the vampires dance!

Let the revels begin–let the fire be started
The world is for the reckless and the stony hearted
Let the devils come in–let the fire be started
The world is for the feckless and the phony hearted
[repeat]

You gonna see the vampires dance
We got the world in our hands
You gonna see the vampires dance
We got the world in our hands
[repeat]

We are tired of the darkness
Now we wanna have fun
So come on you freaks and friends
Our everlasting dance has begun

You gonna see the vampires dance
We got the world in our hands
You gonna see the vampires dance
We got the world in our hands....

Now our life in the darkness is over
We’ll be dancing in the rings of the sun

And soon the world will be one
Before you know it’s begun!

So all of you out there–watch out!
How we are going advance–watch out!
We got the world in our hands–watch out!
You gonna see the vampires dance!

We drink your blood and then we eat your soul
Nothing’s gonna stop us–let the bad times roll
We drink your blood and then we eat your soul
Nothing’s gonna stop us–let the bad times roll....
