No Such Vampire

TTTO “No such Thing”, Zander Nyrond

On a day of wind and rain, my daughter said to me:
“The caves are full of things today, oh mommy, can’t you see?”
“What kind of things?” I asked her, as my face was growing pale
“There’s demons and vampires, they kill in Sunnydale”
So I sat her at the table, and I looked all motherly
And I told her “Stop this foolishness and listen well to me”

Chorus:
There’s no such thing as demons
The vampires are not real
If you can’t face reality
Your mind we’ll have to heal

But now my daughter’s quiet, and denial is my game
I wash the blood from clothes worn, ignoring what’s to blame
And I know it’s not forever, for a slayer has to die
That day we’ll stand around the plot, say platitudes and cry
We will choose a careful wording for the headstone on the grave
For the world will still not know of her, the world she died to save

[Chorus]
