You and me, though in love we may be,
We're summoned by God to destroy evil's seed.
Contented to live in the home that we've built.
And watch our sons grow and become men.
To the teeth we are armed with,
Silver relics and crosses.
We mustn't sum up our losses.
I'd give all I own just to keep you here with me.

Calm down, it's me
Be careful, darling, follow my lead.
Remember that today your training's culminating.
Say a prayer for me.

I must say, you look gorgeous in black,
A few golden strands in your face,
the rest pulled back.
We must hunt at night,
for our prey fears the light.
Lord, steady her bow and bless her sight.
Dear I wanted much more for us than to slay heirs of Judas.
We must be blessed that he chooses us.
I'll meet you at dusk beneath the castle spire.

Calm down, it's me
Be careful, darling, follow my lead.
Remember that today your training's culminating.
Say a prayer for me.
Farewell, Godspeed.
From here on out we hunt separately.
I love you and should something happen save my ashes.
Grip my rosary.

Calm down, it's me
Be careful, darling, follow my lead.
Remember that today your training's culminating.
Say a prayer for me.
Farewell, Godspeed.
From here on out we hunt separately.
I love you and should something happen save my ashes.
Grip my rosary.

    General CommentI love this song! This band needs more fans...

    This song is fairly simple to explain. It's a reference to the Belmonts of the video game series Castlevania, about a family of vampire killers charged with the task of killing Dracula every 100 years.

    Unfortunately, I haven't played any of these games to know if the reference goes any deeper than that.

    Otherwise... I believe the song is about a couple who regularly fight vampires, the minions of Dracula, but the chorus hints that the speaker may have been turned. It would make sense that he would try to comfort his wife if, say, he were bitten; she would probably be startled and a bit upset once they met again - hence parts of the chorus telling her to "calm down", "be careful", remember her training and "say a prayer" for him. The second part he notes that they must hunt separately, and it would make sense if she's to hunt vampires while he needs to hunt for blood.

    It seems through their love for each other they split up without incident, but they know if they ever meet up again she should use her training well.
