Lyrics
It was a numinous night, wet and cold like the last week of autumn
I felt a shiver dividing my soul from the top to the bottom
And there, where two of me then, one part flesh and the other a phantom

To the phantom I said, get behind me, ye vamp of Diablo
It said, you speak out of turn, I was born of the shadow inside you
And I have lived in your heart and with it I've become quite accustom

Choose your blade, we shall dance in the blood and the rain
I grow sick of your whispered betrayal
Go where the dead go, tu estas muerto
Choose your blade, I won't be held as a prisoner of shame
I grow sick of your whispered betrayal
Get thee behind me, you shall not bind me

It was a cowards decision when I offered you sanctuary
I knew it, right then and there that our cartel would be my undoing
But I, rationalized and believed every mangled half truth

To the phantom I said, get behind me, ye vamp of Diablo
For I will cut off these feet by which I deviate if I have to
For I would rather be half of a man then a whole slave to you

Choose your blade, we shall dance in the blood and the rain
I grow sick of your whispered betrayal
Go where the dead go, tu estas muerto
Choose your blade, I won't be held as a prisoner of shame
I grow sick of your whispered betrayal
Get thee behind me, you shall not bind me
