Additional lyrics

2.  All day long the virgins sit
    and feast on endless meals
    The Countess Bath'ry sips her wine
    Her skin doth crack and peel
    But when night time fills the air
    One must pay the price
    The Countess takes her midnight bath
    With blood that once gave life

3.  Living in her self-styled hell
    The Countess dressed in black
    Life so distant death so near
    No blood to turn thy bath
    The castle walls are closing in
    She's crippled now with age
    She welcomes death with open arms
    The reaper turns the page

---------
I am . . .
