Caught up in this madness too blind to see
Woke animal feelings in me
Took over my sense and I lost control
I'll taste your blood tonight

You know I make you wanna scream
You know I make you wanna run from me baby
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time

Relax while you're closing your eyes to me
So warm as I'm setting you free
With your arms by your side there's no struggling
Pleasure's all mine this time

You know I make you wanna scream
You know I make you wanna run from me baby
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring
Cover me, unwanted clemency
Scream till there's silence
Scream while there's life left, vanishing
Scream from the pleasure unmask your desire
Perishing.

We've all had a time where we've lost control,
We've all had our time to grow,
I'm hoping I'm wrong but I know I'm right,
I'll hunt again one night.

You know I make you wanna scream,
You know I make you wanna run from me baby,
But know it's too late you've wasted all your time.

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring,
Cover me, unwanted clemency,
Scream till there's silence,
Scream while there's life left, vanishing,
Scream from the pleasure unmask your desire.
Perishing.

Some live repressing their instinctive feelings,
Protest the way we're built don't point the blame on me.

Scream, scream, scream the way you would if I ravaged your body,
Scream, scream, scream the way you would if I ravaged your mind.

Cherishing, those feelings pleasuring,
Cover me, unwanted clemency,
Scream till there's silence,
Scream while there's life left, vanishing,
Scream from the pleasure
Mask your desire.
Perishing.

    Well I think the artist wants the song to mean whatever you want it to mean but vampires? haha really? I'm a huge vampire fan...I read the Twilight books about a million times...i own the movie...I also read all the House of Night books that are out... and this song really never made me think of vampires at all...so uhh vampires is a kind of weird thing to think of as the meaning...but either way i think its about rape... "pleasures all mine this time" that makes me think of rape... When your being raped your not going to be like "oh baby your so good" or whatever haha "scream till theres silence...scream while theres time left, vanishing" that probably means the girl thats being raped is fixing to die and he wants her to scream... either way i really dont think its about vampires...just because something mentions blood doesnt mean its about vampires...geez ^.^

    okay im gonna set this straight. this song is about someone who rapes someone and then kills them. not vampires. not werewolfs. just because a song is about murder or rape doesent mean that the people in the band actually did it. it is song. nothing else.

    This song is about wild sex. It is belived to be about rape but it says, "With your arms by your side there's no struggling." This means the girl doesn't want it to stop. It could also be about prostitution. Mathew Sanders (M. Shadows) said that it was an anthem to strip clubs.
