How to take so great a curse?
Beloved, of her Lord bereft
A baptism of blood, perverse
We cannot die or think of death
Mark of the host upon her face
No time we have to waste
Renew our oaths through blood and tears
The Count still has his boxes near
A Picadilly street
A grim and silent home
Still, a single box is missed
Our wild work isn't done
You think to thwart my will
But time is on my side
My revenge has just begun
The girls you love are mine
Cast in shadow, Crew of Light
God preserve The Crew of Light
From Mina's words, our hope reborn
Out of hypnotic dreams at dawn
So dark like death and locked inside
The water sounding close outside
Time now is for us to dread
And the signs in Mina's face
On board the Czarina Catherine
The Count seeks to make escape

He'll sleep another century
Then return from whence he came
Make haste to the port of Varna
So begins our deadly game
There's something in the wind
Something speeds him on
Can you feel him in the dark
Just a step beyond
There's something in her mind
Mina seems to change
Can you see her growing cold
Beloved growing strange
Sally forth, The Crew of Light
God preserve The Crew of Light
For love we ride
And we race against the sun
Oh Lord, abide
As we race against the sun
Land or water, so go we
Winchesters to wolf country
Gurkha knife and western gun
Wild work waiting to be done
Mina sleeps like death all day
Night falls then she's wide awake
Growing cold and growing fear
Feeling that an end is near
Flying the flag of Romania
Feeling the life of adventure
Over and through The Carpathians
Riding onward and the castle awaits
For we must travel fast and we ride thus
In a world of the dark and the dreadful
Voices of night all around us
They surround us and the castle awaits
As the fire begins to die
Freezing sweeps of snow do fly
Women laughing in the dusk
Sister, sister, come with us!
Through the flurries hear them sing
Bless the circle, stay within
Horror etched on Mina's face
Not yet, sisters, God be praised

Lying inert in their vampire sleep
So full of life that my soul could weep
'Ere I delay till the sunlight's gone
Master the purpose for which I've come
Terrible task that I now begin
Fastening onto my work of butchery
Horrible shrieks as the stakes drive in
Blood mingling in the dust of centuries
Greater than the rest, a lordly tomb
Noble in its grandeur in the gloom
Carven for a king in his domain
On the dais lies a single name…
Do you see them driving?
They bear down on the gate
Born upon the gypsy cart
The Count within the crate
Do you see the riders?
The strident silhouette
In headlong bridle-tearing flight
They ride to catch him yet
God knows
As we race against the sun
In flight
As we race against the sun
Through the biting ring of death, we drive
On the earth box of The Count, we dive
Take the hateful triumph from his eyes
Final death is flashing in our knives
Lo! Upon his face, a look of peace
Dust on wind, he flies, at last, release
Silence o'er his broken battlements
Emptily, we mourn our fallen friends
So, we made this end…
