The Beauty of Blood

The beauty of blood when I gnaw
prompts a lack of concern for the law.
I cannot discourage my beast
from biting your body to feast
now fangs have a place in my jaw.

My lack of compassion's no flaw;
it's time this beast settled a score.
It's hard to explain to a priest
the beauty of blood.

The pleas of my prey I ignore;
the ice in my heart will not thaw.
Since joining the ranks of deceased,
my sense of morality's ceased.
I cannot deny I adore
the beauty of blood.
