Powerwolf – We Drink Your Blood lyrics

Our mother God we hold the sword in holy times
We are the war, we never see the light
The order call, we all will take more human wine
And we toast to the night

We fold our hands, we keep the bible in our minds
Our father God, we are the hordes of Cain
And though you run we will take you and we find
Any type, any vein

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins

Our father lord, we are the demons of the wild
When all we pray, stand the fight as one
We tame the storm, we are the martyrs in the light
Take your soul when you run
We are the dark, we are the saints of blood at night
We hear the call, when the moon shines red
We grab your body, in morning all we are
Satisfied when you are dead

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins

We drink, we drink, we drink your blood
Kyrie eleison
We drink, we drink, we drink your blood
Kyrie eleison

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins
We drink your blood

    It could be about vampires. There are some stories about vampires living in the catholic church to get easy prey. I think it's a commentary on the the last supper though. Christians drink the 'blood of Christ', hence the 'human wine'. To drink the wine is to be forgiven of sin. It could be a comment on the use of the ritual. It's been used as a ritual to 'just forgive sin' and not to repent. A few hundred years ago, it was necessary to see the ritual being preformed, to be a good christian. So not everyone went to church but just watched.

    A very explicit song, which could display the need for the ritual people have. But then use it as if they are vampires, just wanting the blood, so they are forgiven and are then satisfied and glad Christ saved them, and just continue on living like dark creatures.

    It's obviously about vampires due to the midnight sky is red reference. Blood moons, also known as red moons are the only event that could cause this at the hour of midnight. Not dusk. So, with this we must also examine the fact the lyrics he intently says at the beginning of the song, "we never see the light. " meaning, they are vampiric creatures of the night. Vampires cannot walk amongst the living in daylight - werewolves can. This song is about vampires. Not werewolves.

    The song is vampire-themed because:.
    1. It is about drinking blood and what are vampires doing.?
    2. Vampires are also called the children of cain for example in vampire: the masquerade by white wolf (rpg).
    3. Vampires die when they are exposed to sunlight so the line "we are martyrs in the light" could be another indicator for that.
    I think that makes more sense than your werewolf theory because vampires actually drink blood and werewolves would just kill their enemies/prey to see it die.
