I wake at dusk to go alone
without a light
to the unknown
i want this night inside of me
i want to feel
i want this speeding
i want that speeding

my blood beats black tonight!

no need for comfort
no need for light
i am hunting for secrets tonight
Eat the sorrow lick the spark
u h oh my blood beats dark

And here it comes
it comes for me
i want to run
i want to scream
Get in my car with both eyes closed
full pedal down
And i am speeding!

my blood beats black tonight!

no need for comfort
no need for light
i am hunting down demons tonight
Eat the terror lick the spark
uh oh my blood beats dark.

    General Commentthis song perfectly fits for lonely night walks through the city, with your headphones on... or just sitting on the backseat of the car and watching out of the window into the night...

    i'm being totally immersed in Lycanthropy lately, such a strangely beautiful record...

    General CommentPerhaps he's talking about letting go or blocking out all the petty shit and people in his life (i.e. "eat the sorrow"; "hunting for secrets..."; and "hunting down demons...") and just looking to bring happiness or excitement into his life (i.e. "lick the spark" - the spark being the excitement) to kind of negate all of that.

    Being that it's something as simple as speeding in a car just for the adrenaline rush, excitement can still bring happiness to a person even if it's within a small time frame.
