"Deception" as written by and Jean Philippe/mobulu Tamba....
She cries, children often do
When they're cold, and hungry too,
Come closer, look deeply in her eyes
So delicate, quite unlike her smile

Life clinging backwards,
In the fall of dread confusion,
Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,
All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation,
Far more sinister than the price of doubt,

Yet you remain,
Still you remain,

And she says:
Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception,

Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception...

Life clinging backwards,
In the fall of dread confusion,
Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,Life clinging backwards,
In the fall of dread confusion,
Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,
All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation,
Far more sinister than the price of doubt,

Yet you remain,
Still you remain,

And she says:
Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception,

Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception..

(violin solo)

Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception,

Pray for daylight,
Pray for morning,
Pray for an end to our deception..
(x3)

    General CommentApart from the fact that it's included in the Vampire: the Masquerade album, the lyrics point to the fact that it's about the downsides of being a vampire.

    General CommentI always thought it was "mourning". It just seemed to make more sence to me.

    General CommentI really like the fact that they change up the lyrics for the last run of the chorus in the live version. "Enter the Tageslicht... Enter the Morgen..." They selectively translated it to German, which is awesome, but I'd like to understand what they replaced, "Pray for an end to our deception" with.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about wanting daylight to come to wipe away the vampires/darkness. It's a pretty generic german fairy tale lyriced song really.

    General Commentoh, i love this song. it annoys me that i don't know anyone who listens to them. they're amazing. their lyrics hit truth and sincerity. i guess the reason is due to it's not famous on popular radio stations and that most kids my age are turned off by goth/industrial music. but this band can be loved easily by everyone.
