The Night (1988 Deathrock Version)

This song is by Voltaire and appears on the album Raised by Bats (2014).

The day is the wife of whom I elude
The one to whom I should be right
Although forwarned by peers and kin
I always get into the night!
Mother always warned me such
Being a nocturnal soul
Besides just beign simply strange
Spawns from some illness of the mind

The Night!
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me toward her in the dark
While the others rest
While the others rest
While the others rest

Heed the call the time has come
For you children of the Night
Gather 'round like suckling dogs
Mother's come she is the Night!
Come with me to the other side
Make that girl in black your bride!

The Night!
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me toward her in the dark
While the others rest
While the others rest
While the others rest

I've seen the light
Coming through the blinds
I close my eyes
I don't care if you think it's wrong
I'm gonna sleep all day long
The sun goes down: This is my wake up call

This seems very strange to me
That her quiet lonely streets
Draped in all the mystery
Could be so sweet and comforting

The Night!
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She calls me
She sways in her velvet dress
And pulls me toward her in the dark
While the others rest
While the others rest
While the others rest
