​Within the Dark Domain

This song is by Theatres des Vampires and appears on the album Vampyrìsme, Nècrophilie, Nècrosadisme, Nècrophagie (1996).

I've been awake in this house
She's vanished like a phantasm
The desperation is the mistress of my thoughts

Slave of this house, slave of this nightmare
All seems so alive and macabre
Also my tears seem living
When are falling on my face

The moon is covered from obscure clouds
But I can see like the eyes of a bat
Darkness wrap me in this silence, into obscurity of this room

Open the door, walk in the passage, take the crucifix in my hand
Rooms, stairs, and silence around me
Perhaps I'm alone, and I can't escape from this mournful place

All is closed
I'm condemned to wait her return
I shall come back in my room
I hear someone open the door: she enter with sirene mien to say me "Good night", but before coming out...
"The people of Transylvania don't believe in this forms of faith and idolatry. Remove your crucifix!"
Then she comes out from my room

I feel an asphyxiating sensation of fear
Now I do know of the danger
I can't escape from the doors
But only from the window of my room
