"After Dark" as written by and Bloom/trivers/myers....
What's that in the corner?
It's too dark to see.
What's that noise I'm hearing?
Who's that calling me?

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
Once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control and told me what to say
And let me loose, I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I see you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I need you

Of age there is no question
Death's shadow is undone
We only need each other
And shelter from the sun

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
Once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control and told me what to say
And let me loose, I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I need you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I see you

There's no turning back now
My fate is traced in blood
I've tasted true salvation
Your power is my drug

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
Once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control and told me what to say
And let me loose, I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I need you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I see you
After dark, I touch you
After dark, I doooooo
After dark, after dark, after dark

    General CommentBuck said in an interview that this song is a sequel to "I Love The Night". So yes, Vampires.

    General CommentI think it is deeper than being merely about vampires...it is about grasping the 'left handed' path/satanism/olde religion/etc. The line "And let me loose, I fear I've finally found a way" sounds like 'and let me, lucifer, I've finally found the way'. No longer fearing, rather, fully embracing and accepting a path of darkness(not unlike 'career of evil')
