Night is falling, time to step out of the shadows
Gliding with the moonlight, following the dirge of blood
I need to wet my thirsty throat but something’s holding me back
The city lights and the tumult of life confuse my senses

It's not easy being a vampire these days
The world has changed in oh so many ways
in the old days it was easier
food was easier to catch
and wasn't contaminated yet
Even flying is not what it used to be
The air is no longer fresh and clear
Aircraft, all that new-fangled stuff
Skyscrapers restrict my radar
I have to take care when I’m coming down

I miss the long winter evenings in the library
The fire in the fireplace and a glass of warm, fresh blood
Nowadays I have to make do with a bag of old blood and the books are digital
This is truly not the life that I imagine
How hard it was to find a dark, musty place for my coffin
Everywhere only these modern walls
Humans also have no respect for monsters anymore because too many live among them
