lyrics

It seems that you've pulled back the curtain
It seems I've found myself within
I know that it'd be better
If I never let them know about the feelings
That you gave to me
Transmitted by your mythic bite

It seems that one thing else is certain
That you can't stop once you begin
So nothing could be worse or any better
It's a curse and it's a blessing
Let them guess, let's keep them guessing
What we did that night

I guess it went
A bit too far
I'm feeling strange
But not bizarre
It touched my core
A mutant gene
From your lycopene in me

Now hunters packing silver bullets
Are setting out for eldritch prey
And seeking to destroy the ancient menace
Like their fathers did before them
Protecting innocents like me
So sure they know what's right

And folks who don't know any better
Are telling me I'll be okay
And I can't help but think that it's ironic
Maybe this is what I wanted
The shedding of humanity
That started with your bite

I guess it went
A bit too far
I'm feeling strange
But not bizarre
It touched my core
A mutant gene
From your lycopene in me

And I'm okay
'cause no one knows
Provided that
It never shows
A monster born
Of human genes
And your lycopene in me

Eyes wide
Teeth bared
Freak show
We don't care
Catch a scent
Just right
Sink or swim
Fight or flight
Sharp claws
Stand tall
I won't be mounted on your wall

I guess it went
A bit too far
I'm feeling strange
But not bizarre
It touched my core
A mutant gene
From your lycopene in me

And I'm okay
'cause no one knows
Provided that
It never shows
A monster born
Of human genes
And your lycopene in me
