Deep in the heart of Germany Lucy clutched her breast in fear She heard the beat of her lover's heart For weeks she raved in dreams he appeared From far Transylvania
Only a woman can break his spell Pure in heart who will offer herself To Nosferatu
This ship pulled in without a sound The faithful captain long since cold He kept his log till the bloody end Last entry read "Rats in the hold. My crew is dead, I fear the plague"
Only a woman can break his spell Pure in heart who will offer hefself To Nosferatu
Mortal terror reigned Sickness now then horrible death Only Lucy knew the truth And at her window Nosferatu
So chaste so calm, she gave herself To the pleasure of her dreaded master He sucked the precious drops of life Throughout the long and cold dark night
One last goodbye, he was blinded by love One last goodbye, he was blinded by love Blinded by love
He screamed with fear, he'd stayed too long in her room The morning sun had come too soon The spell was broken with a kiss of doom He vanished into dust, left her all alone
Only a woman can break his spell Pure in heart, who will offer herself To Nosferatu

Benn from Arcola, IlActually, the song is based on the 1922 German silent film, "Nosferatu". The lyrics tell the same story the movies does. Incidentally, the movie "Nosferatu" was a loose adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel, "Dracula".
"Nosferatu" is not the only B.O.C. to be based on a movie, btw. "Vengeance (The Pact)" (from the "Fire of Unknown Origin" album) is based on the final segment of the movie "Heavy Metal". It was submitted for the film, in fact.
