about

This song is based on Barnabas Collins (from the classic 60's gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows) trapped in a crypt and bound in a coffin; longing for the death of the woman who cursed him to become a vampire - the witch Angelique Bouchard.

lyrics

Locked in and sealed tight
No sunlight, scents of earth
blood from my eyes, cremated cries
dreaming of re-birth

oh my darling, tell me does it hurt?
bewitched by tears, could drown in here
while all those candles burn

burn

midnight, my only friend
I don’t know where I’ll run
in this tomb, dried blood on my chest
I don’t know when the end will come
will you see me? when my teeth rip out your throat?
one death takes another again
before the night is done

and I’ve been lost so long, ageless as the earth
well I know no fear and I can’t hear
her broken heart return
the light is fading now, I can’t see her icy breath
its been ten long years trapped down in here
and I’m just waiting for death

death

midnight, my only friend
I don’t know where I’ll run
in this tomb, dried blood on my chest
I don’t know when the end will come
will you see me? when my teeth rip out your throat?
one death takes another again
before the night is done
