"Avoid the Light" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
Modern day plague
Stronger than any and every virus, disease or sickness

Full eclipse of ideality
Anti-christian, and nocturnally alive (undead)
Buried underneath two thousand years (of histories)
Yet able to rise
Instinctively arise

Avoid the light
The sun's in sight
The undead should be sleeping
Avoid the light
That cross so bright
My fledglings dropping, weeping
Avoid the light
Overt your sight
Go underground discreetly
Avoid the light, avoid the light, avoid the light, avoid the light

True and purely hollow
Man's ultimate enemy and predator
Wrapped into one

Spread like wings
Of damnated
Then falling into
Shaping mortal man (nonslaved)
Plasma cover
Will override (your true emotions)
The pure inversion
To guard my countless graves

Avoid the light
The sun's in sight
The undead should be sleeping
Avoid the light
That cross of light
My fledglings dropping, weeping
Avoid the light
Overt your sight
Go underground discreetly

Alone, unseen, reborn, receive

It's a battle of wills (it's a battle of wills)
In glory he'll sneak in (he shall devour)

Avoid the light
The sun's in sight
The undead should be sleeping
Avoid the light
That cross of light
My fledglings dropping, weeping
Avoid the light
Overt your sight
Go underground discreetly
Avoid the light

    General CommentThis is a song they did for the dracula 2000 soundtrack. He is talking about a vampire's life/ unlife.

    General CommentI love the chorus in this song. It sounds like a vampire's dying breaths, his last words a warning to the undead.

    General CommentOld people like the shade and they avoid the light. Heh, I don't know if it has a serious meaning. I think it's just a song to go along with the movie.

    General CommentHas anybody been able to figure out what's being said at the very beginning of the song? It sounds like spoken words being played in reverse. Anybody else have a theory?

    General CommentReverse speak sounds something like this; Satan's wrath is the only choice, his still-born army is impeccable

    Lyric CorrectionA bunch of lines are wrong, so I've written out the correct lyrics for the song.

    *Backwards*
    Satan's wrath is the only choice
    His still-born army is impeccable


    Modern day plague
    Stronger than any and every
    Virus, disease, or sickness


    Full eclipse
    Of ideality
    Anti-christian
    And nocturnally alive (undead)
    Buried underneath
    Two-thousand years (of histories)
    Yet able to rise
    Instinctively arise


    Avoid the light
    The sun's in sight
    The undead should be sleeping
    Avoid the light
    That cross so bright
    My fledglings dropping, weeping
    Avoid the light
    Overt your sight
    Go underground discretely
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light


    True and pure horror
    Man's ultimate enemy and predator
    Wrapped into one


    Spread black wings
    Of damnated
    Then falling into
    Shaping mortal man (nonslaved)
    Plasma cover
    Will override (your true emotion)
    The pure inversion
    To guard my countless graves


    Avoid the light
    The sun's in sight
    The undead should be sleeping
    Avoid the light
    That cross of light
    My fledglings dropping, weeping
    Avoid the light
    Overt your sight
    Go underground discretely
    Alone
    Unseen
    Reborn
    Reseed


    It's a battle of wills
    (It's a battle of wills)
    Ingloriously killed
    (We shall devour)


    [Guitar solo]


    Avoid the light
    The sun's in sight
    The undead should be sleeping
    Avoid the light
    That cross of light
    My fledglings dropping, weeping
    Avoid the light
    Overt your sight
    Go underground discretely
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light
    Avoid the light


    *Backwards*
    Satan's wrath is the only choice
    His still-born army is impeccable
