SHADOWS OF THE NIGHT

SHADOW OF THE NIGHT
LIKE A NITEOWL I AWAIT FOR THE DARKNESS TO COME
TO COVER THE FACE OF THE EARTH
AND HEAD OUT INTO THE NIGHT

ONCE THE SUN SLEEPS
IT IS TIME
FOR THE CRAZED MOON TO CAST ITS SPELL
ON THE CREATURES AND PREDATORS OF THE NITE

THE BEASTY SENSES OF PLEASURE
COME TO BE AWAKEN AND AROUSED
IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT

FOR NOT EVEN THE HEAVENLY STARS ABOVE
CAN RESIST THE MYSTIC BEAUTY
OF THE EARTH BELOW UNDER THE MOONLIGHT

SO LIKE THE STARS ABOVE FALL FROM THE SKY AT NIGHT
LIKE THE SINNERS OF HEAVEN
I FALL INTO PERDITION
NEVER TO RISE AGAIN
TO THAT OLD GLORY WHICH IS ABOVE THE CLOUDS

THUS IS THE LUST
THE SEDUCING PLEASURE OF THE NIGHT

AND LIKEWISE
NO ONE CAN SEE WHO WE REALLY ARE
IN THE DARK OF THE NIGHT

LIKE A MASK I TAKE OFF WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OFF
WHEN NO LONGER IS IT A WORRY TO PLAY NICE
ONCE THE DAY IS DONE

FOR THE GREAT BLACK SHADOW OVER I
COOL, PEACEFUL AND SERENE IT IS
SERVES TO COVER MY FRONT

THRU THE MIDNITE HOURS
I PLAY TILL DAWN

LIKE A SINNER OR NIGHT PRIEST
THE MOVES I MAKE
LOOKING TO CONVINCE THE LADIES UNDER THE MOONGLOW
HUNTING FOR SWEET LOVE

INTOXICATED WITH DRINK, SMOKE AND LUST
LIKE A JOKER I SMILE WHILE I PLAY THE TRICKS
LIKE a CLOWN I HELP OTHERS TO LAFFTER
BEFORE I SHARE IN THEIR CRY

EXCUSED OF ALL GUILT
FOR THE NIGHT MOOD IS TO BLAME
A MOONSPELL TOOK EFFECT
RAPTURED THE MOMENT
AND THAT’S HOW IT WENT

THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT
MY SOUL TRANSFORMS
TWISTING MY HEART AND MIND
GOOD TOUGHTS GO AWRY
AND A BLACK ANGEL IS BORN

DECEIVING AS THE NIGHT BE
SOOTHING COMFORT
IS ITS GIFT TO ME

A TIME TO MEDITATE IT BRINGS
TWINKLING STARS IN THE INFINITE EXPANSE
REJUVINATE THE HOPES

THE COOL BREEZE AT NIGHT
FRESH OXYGEN TO MY WEARY LUNGS

THE CRECENT SHAPED MOON ABOVE
SMILES DOWN ON ME
LA LUNA TILTED DOWN AS IF ON A CRUISE

AND THE QUIET, THE SILENCE
ACCOMPANING EACH NIGHT
BRINGS REST TO A WIRED MIND

ITS COOL CRISP AIR
CARESSING MY SLEEP
LIKE A FAITHFUL LOVER IN LOVE

SOMETIMES IT FEELS AS IF THE NIGHT
CAN READ MY MIND
AS IF IT WAS A PART OF ME
AS IF IT KNOWS EXACTLY WHO I AM

INDEED WE’RE MUCH ALIKE
WE’RE BOTH SHADOWS IN A DARK WORLD
THE NIGHT AND I

BOTH GOING THRU THE MOTIONS
DREADING WHEN THE SUN SHOWS UP
AS IF NOSTALGIA WOULD ESCAPE US
AND NEVER COME BACK TO US

THE TIC TOCS GO BY
AND THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT
AND THE SHADOWS OF THE NIGHT
WITNESS THE SUNRISE

AND THEN WE COME TO REALIZE
THAT THE DAY AS WELL IS FILLED WITH LILLITH’S
AND WAREWOLVES ON THE PROWL
JUST LIKE IT HAPPENS ON A FUCKED UP NIGHT

THE SUNRISE WORLD
PREYING ON WEAK MINDS
PLAYING ON SWEET LIES

WHAT A TRIP
THE TOUGHT CROSSES MY MIND
SUN UP COULD USE A LITTLE NIGHT LIFE

IF MAYBE SIMPLY TO ESCAPE
THE PHANTOMS OF THE LIGHT
WHO STEAL FROM THE DARK
TO CARRY ON IN THEIR CRAFT IN BROAD DAYLIGHT
TURNING A BRIGHT DAY INTO GREY SKIES
LOST ANGELS FROM THE DARK
CREATING THEIR TWILIGHT AT DAWN

AND SO I WAIT FOR THE TRUE OF THE NIGHT
TO ESCAPE FROM THE NIGHT OF DAY
FOR LIKE A ZOMBIE UNDER A MOONSPELL
I TOO AM A CONVERT TO THE NIGHT

LIKE A SHADOW IN THE NIGHT
I'LL BE GONE WHEN THE LIGHT COMES UP
