Yeah!
Oh!

Waking up with just one thing in mind
Eyes sewn shut
So tear them open WIDE!

I'm on the hunt, I'm on the prowl
I can almost taste you now
I'm on your scent, I'll track you down
I'm on you now

Drain your blood
Watch it pour
Drain your blood
Bleed no more

[Chorus x2]

Please forgive me
(Please forgive me)
I don't know what I'm doing
Someone help me
Start begging for your mercy

Can you feel the pain

Can you feel the pain?
(Can you feel the pain
The smell of fear around you
Do you wanna scream?
(Do you wanna scream?)
Let it out 'cause no one can HEAR YOU

I'm on the hunt, I'm on the prowl
I can almost taste you now
I'm on your scent, I'll track you down
I'm on you now

[Chorus x2]

Please forgive me
(Please forgive me)
I don't know what I'm doing
Someone help me
Start begging for your mercy

[Guitar solo! ]

Drain your blood
Watch it pour
Drain your blood
Bleed no more

[Guitar solo cont.]

[Chorus x2]

Please forgive me
(Please forgive me)
I don't know what I'm doing
Someone help me
Start begging for your mercy

(Ah! )
Oh!

    It means that he loves someone but instead of making her happy and giving her pleasure he abused the girl and not thinking that he is out of his control.

    Letting anger take control one second hes out for blood, another second hes asking for help. He knows hes done wrong, but can't prevent his emotions from taking over.

    I dont know the real meaning of it, but im going to go and say what i think it means to me. To me the lyrics are talking about someone that hurt him or broke up wtih him and now he is coming back for that revenge x

    It's kind of like their song "waking the demon", there is someone angry trying to kill someone else. Someone pissed off someone else something fierce, and now he is after revenge by killing him. He is obviously so angry, he is blinded by his own merciless rage. Example: "please forgive me (please forgive me) i don't know what i'm doing someone help me start begging for your mercy".
