From small clues in the lyrics I think this song is about a vampire who, being immortal and having lived for millennia, met Jesus Christ two thousand years ago and listened him preach. The vampire saw the truth in Jesus words, he saw the light, but also realized he was forever forbidden from salvation because of his own evil nature. This song is about regret and sorrow of somebody seeing the light but not being able to reach it because of his nature.
