I'm standing in the shadows
I can't hide it anymore
The moon is full
And it's taking over me!

I just can't take it
I just can't take it anymore
This curse is haunting
Haunting me just like a ghost

I can feel it taking
I can feel it taking over me
There's no stopping me
I'm addicted to what I've become
I can feel you shakin
I can feel you shaking on your knees
There's no stoppin me
Your addicted to what I've become

My heart is racin
I can't stop chasin after you
Your heart stops beating
I can't resist the taste of you
Can you feel me breathing down the back of your neck
I can hear you screaming
Screaming for the beast in me

I can feel it taking, taking over me
There's no stoppin me I can feel it taking
I'm addicted to what I've become

I can feel it taking
I can feel it taking over me
There's no stopping me
I'm addicted to what I've become
I can feel you shakin
I can feel you shaking on your knees
There's no stoppin me
Your addicted to what I've become

I'm addicted!
I'm addicted!

I can feel it taking
I can feel it taking over me
There's no stopping me
I'm addicted to what I've become
I can feel you shakin
I can feel you shaking on your knees
There's no stoppin me
Your addicted to what I've become

    General Comment"The moon is full" / "And it's taking over me!" / "This curse is haunting" / "Haunting me just like a ghost" / "Your heart stops beating" / "I can't resist the taste of you" / "Can you feel me breathing down the back of your neck".

    References to becoming a beast, the moon & a chase would seem to indicate lycanthropy, but upon closer inspection, the mentions of the end of a heartbeat - the taste of the victim and breathing down the neck of the victim - this would seem to more strongly indicate vampirism.

    Now - the question is *why* are 'Before Their Eyes' singing about this topic? For that one, I have yet to get a good answer.

    Anyone from 'myspace.com/beforetheireyes' care to chime in?
