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

    To be flatly honest, it sounds to me like it's referencing the Crusaders. The opening verse makes mention of "hold(ing) the sword in Holy times". The Crusades were called the "Sacri Bellum" by the King of Spain and the Papal decree, which is Latin for "The Holy War". The Crusaders were those who literally composed the Entirety of the War, at least for the first three crusades. After that, the Hospitalers took the helm. The song also mentions the "Order Call", which could either mean the orders called out to attack and shed the "Human Wine", or it could be referencing the "Order of Holy Brothers", which is what the Knights were called by the leadership. These were usually the first ones to charge on the battlefield, and ergo: the first to take enemy life and spill "Human Wine".
    The mention of "the Hordes of Cain" sounds to me like it could refer to any killer or taker of human life. I know one guy below me here mention vampires being the children of Cain, and then references a video game. Not sure what he was driving at, but whatever. What makes me think it's referencing killing is that the lines before it are a prayer, and a penitent cry for mercy. Which, amusingly enough, is exactly what Kyrie Elaison means in Greek, and is also frequently used in prayers.
    Next up: when the moon shines red. Red moons were a portend of evil in the medieval times, and are referenced in the Bible (notably Revelations) as foretelling slaughter and bloodshed. It was a bad omen, and a herald sign of the end of days. And from the records left, I'm fairly certain that the battles during the Crusades were nothing short of Biblical, and the carnage and mess of bodies left at the end of it all were gruesome.
    I could go on, but I think that makes my point.

    not a vampire neither a werewolf meaning .. its just a hubris to Jeesus ... Kyrie Eleison ... its in greek language for starters ... and in church you eat the holy bread inside the hly wine that they symbolize the body and blood of Christ... now clear your head from Werewolves and Vamps and hear clearer the song !

    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...

    I believe its a werewolf based legend time of thing to which werewolfves are regarded as demonic creatures outcasts of god on the other hand i feel a certain love for god on the werewolves part and an irony against the so called men of god i mean god doesnt have blood to be drank so yeah it must be irony towards fake "priests"

    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.
