"Claire's Horrors" as written by and Sean Brennan....
Spirits seem to drift up through a darkened sky
Drifting through dead branches in the night
While in the moonlight we
Go down upon our knees
Entwined together only we can see their beauty

Beneath the stars a bell begins to toll
For reasons which we really shouldn't know
So take a walk with me down to the cemetery
Wrap me in darkness, Claire make love to me

I am thunder
I am rain
I am pleasure
I am pain

Only in darkness can there be light
Tell me angel have you prayed tonight?

In the dark I know you all so well
Beauty from Heaven wrapped 'round souls from Hell
So take a drink from me
My sacrifice to thee
Damned fallen angels
Always blessed with me

    General Commentthis could possibly be a reference to Jane Clairmont (also known as Claire Clairmont), one of Lord Byron's many lovers and mother of his daughter Allegra.

    Although their actual relationship was strained and tense, the 1986 movie "Gothic" told it rather differently. The film gave her the tendency towards epileptic fits, which her step-sister, Mary Shelley, termed, "Claire's Horrors." Byron's love adopts predatory undertones, at some points portraying him as a vampire feeding from his young, angelic paramour.

    General CommentSean from London After Midnight claimed the song had no meaning but is one obvious reference to Claire Clairmont's epileptic fits which Mary Shelley titled "Claire's Horrors".
