"Nothing Good Happens After Dark" as written by and Ryan Donald/hackenson Zimmerman....
One look in their eyes
And you should have seen that there is
Nothing else that they want of you than to feed on you
You know they just want your body
Now it's not so sexy

We tried to warn you about the dark
But you never listen to us anyway
They showed their fangs but you still stayed
You should have known that they were thirsty

Wish I didn't have to talk to your grave
All the times that we tried to warn you
Just a little, a little bit attracted to
All the times that we tried to warn you

We tried to warn you about the dark
But you never listen to us anyway
They showed their fangs but you still stayed
You should have known that they were thirsty

Now it's over and you're dead
Now it's over there's nothing left of you

We told you not to ever go out by yourself (come on!)
We told you not to ever go out by yourself
Because they're out there and waiting for you

We tried to warn you about the dark
But you never listen to us anyway
They showed their fangs but you still stayed
You should have known that they were thirsty

We tried to warn you about the dark
But you never listen to us anyway
They showed their fangs but you still stayed
You should have known that they were thirsty

Now it's over and you're dead
Now it's over there's nothing left of you

    General Commentvery straightforward: vampires got to this person (girl?) that the narrator cared for. she was warned and she knew they were dangerous but she allowed herself to be killed. this sounds like it is being said to her grave

    General CommentSounds like the follow up song to 'Ya'll With The Vampire Squad'.

    We tried to warn you about the dark
    But you never listen to us anyway
    They showed their fangs but you still stayed
    You should have known that they were thirsty

    Seems like she disregarded his warnings, went out and tried a new lifestyle; One getting drunk, stoned, and having sex with random guys.

    Now it's over and you're dead
    Now it's over there's nothing left of you

    Now she's done that, they can't be the way they were before. She's got nothing left to offer him.

    General Comment(though i may agree with 'anferneee' that its most likely about a person that got eaten and killed by a vampire...) I have my own view of it; and its kinda depressing if you see it from my eyes...

    The way i see it is that: a perticular person has a dream or a goal he/she wants to achive. Everyone says that he/she cant do it![probabily cause the goal isnt possible, or the people arnt very nice/encouraging=[. ] but he/she doesnt care, he/she just tries for it anyway.
    Then, at the worst possible moment the Dream is Shattered!=[ now that perticular person cant forgive himself/herself knowing or thinking that everyone was right. He/She cant forgive himself/herself for digging their own grave.

    so basicly i believe that this song is another way of saying 'i told you so!' and 'dreams can never be achived, so stop believing in yourself'. =[[[

    General CommentI love that the accompanying ad is for meeting vampire singles...lmao
    It's a follow-up for Y'all... so you could always look up those meanings for an idea. haha Although I don't really follow the literal interpretation of vampires. :)
