Since the dawn of time, he's been here
Forgotten son, testing all our fears
Nature's mistake, he sees no end
The dragon's child, walks among man

For centuries past, many tribes know the tales
Of men not returning, when they've gone there
And those who've returned, can't describe what they've seen
Their hair has turned white, and they've gone insane

Oh, beware the blackend water
The creature has come to take you away
Oh, beware unholy water
On this dying day

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is a reference to Vlad The Impaler. He was a romanian ruler who was famous for... Well impaling people. Anyway, both his and his father belonged to a group called the Order of the Dragon. Which is probably where the song's title kicks in. Anyway, that's just one jugallo's theory. If you think I'm wrong go ahead and say so fellas,

    General CommentNo dude it really is It Came From the Black Lagoon (monter) and anyway Vlad the Impaler was associated as the first and original Dracula not Dragon's Child.

    General CommentNever hire someone like Carson Daly for a music channel.

    Does he think he is black when they have black artists on the show or something?

    General CommentIt's funny seeing someone with a user name like "iknowmorethenyou"... yet he has the mentality of a 12 year old. Add to the fact he doesn't know how to spell.. but he knows more "than" us. :)
