A dead full moon has snuck up over the hills
Cold, black coffee, the last of the pills
I never shone that bright in daylight
Like a forgotten child I tend to dwell in the night
"You got to seize the day!" Heard those words so many times
For me it's always been about these shades and the crimes
I've got a sick desire, should I pray my Lord,
for you to come and stop me or should I walk out that door?

I know this town like the back of my gun
Meet me deep in the alley, and we'll have some fun
They're all a bunch of morons in this town, a nasty lot,
such easy, little victims for this hunger I've got
I watch them as they walk and as they stray from their friends
One by one I'll bring them their miserable ends
They're lured into my shed by my imposturous phonecalls
Scream all you want, these are sound proofwalls

Bloodshot eyes and the skin of a ghost
Without a sound I scream Carpe Noctem
I walk for hours with a craving so strong
and off the roof tops I howl towards the moon

After I'm done I fill my vials to the rim
Make my way to her house, where I know she's with him
Oh, god, she's such a beauty, black haired and blue eyed
I dream every day that she's my blushing bride
I climb through their window, quiet as the dead,
then gently take my place behind her in the bed
As I swallow down tonight's catch and moan with delight
I lick her tender skin
This is seizingthe night

Bloodshot eyes and the skin of a ghost
Without a sound I scream Carpe Noctem
I walk for hours with a craving so strong
and off the roof tops I howl towards the moon

There’s a child at sleep, it’s praying
for the morning to come
Would you judge this phantom swirling through the malodourous slum
if you knew?
Am I the skeleton in your closet
or the beast beneath your bed?
Would you judge this phantom drifting around
piling up the dead
if you knew?

Bloodshot eyes and the skin of a ghost
Without a sound I scream Carpe Noctem
I walk for hours with a craving so strong
and off the roof tops I howl towards the moon

I won’t object to that there is a blackness in my heart
I linger as we kiss, and you will never know
A slimy snake is slithering beneath my skin
An empty void, a dark abyss, is staring back at me
