This is just the beginning, it isn't an end.
This isn't a funeral, more of a christening.
There's no need to wear black.
This is just what I came here for, and the war is begun.
I'm creating my dynasty, the dark side of the sun.

Life after life, you won't need flowers on your grave.
You won't need prayers, you have no mortal soul to save.
No one should mourn, no one should ever shed a tear.
The reward I am offering, shines brighter than gold.
Life after life.

You are only the spearhead, the first of my kind.
It's a matter of time before London belongs to us.

Every night someone new, every victim a midnight feast.
They will fall one by one, and our empire will quickly grow.
The dark side of the sun

Life after life
This is the prize I give to you.
Find your new world, and see what damage you can do.
Together we will prowl these quiet moonlit streets.

Choose our prey carefully
And let it begin
Life after life

Go and quench your new thirst, drink the blood of the innocent.
Those who are without sin, taste the sweetest of all.

Life after life
You/I won't need flowers on your/my grave.
You/I won't need prayers, you/I have no mortal soul to save.
Together we will prowl these quiet moonlit streets.
Choose our prey carefully
And let it begin.

Life after life after life after life after life
After life after life after life after life
After... life
