Listen to them,
Children of the night
What music they make.

Paint your face, tonight we terrorize this town.
Coffin case, we gather, our time is now.
Ten Thirty-one, we roam the streets in thirst for blood, it all begins.
All begins, with your life.

Ten Thirty-one, We roam the streets in thirst for blood,
Sleep all day party all night never grow old, never die
It's fun to be a vampire.

We are, we are children of the night.
And we are rising from the grave.
To haunt you in your sleep and drink you from your neck.

Cry little sister and save these,
And save these lost boys thou shall not fall
Be one of us.

Cry little sister and save these,
And save these lost boys thou shall not fall, we can't fall
Be one of us.

We are, we are children of the night.
And we are rising from the grave.
To haunt you in your sleep and drink you from your neck. (x2)

    That they are calling out to the children of the night that are just like me and are telling them that they are never alone. That some one is always standing behind them and supporting them.

    It's definitely about the 1987 The Lost Boys and the guy who commented before was correct about the quotes and relation to 'Cry Little Sister' by Gerard Mcmann. Also, the "thou shall not fall" part is part of a line from 'Cry Little Sister' and "Be one of us" is a quote from The Lost Boys. Furthermore, the intro, "Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!" is a quote from Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    This song is about the eighty's film the lost boys its a vampire film and there may be a deep meaning behind choosing this movie to base their song on but i don't think its saying how they are different.

    It's about the film. The lost boys..

    Cry little sister is one of the main songs from the film

    Be one of us. Is what they say to michael.

    Sleep all day party all night never grow old, never die
    It's fun to be a vampire. Is the tag line of the film.

    Educate yourselves.

    I think the song is about how people look the band and goth's/emo's differently as if they are weird creatures like vampires! And it may also be refering to goths and emo being bullied and now how they should stand up to the bullies as there are lots of emos and goths out there now!
