From Bauhaus to Outkast, you’ll find that the lyrics in these 13 songs are perfect for those of you who identify as a Vampiric individual.
Great to listen to whether you’re enjoying your daily dose of blood or sharpening your fangs (which reminds me, I need to do that). 😉
“The bats have left the bell tower / The victims have been bled.” (Oh my goth!)
“If I was your vampire / Death waits for no one.” (Can’t have a list like this without Manson.)
“You got it, you got it, some kind of magic / Hypnotic, hypnotic, you’re leaving me breathless.” (This one is for you, Twilight lovers.)
“You only live once / Well, not in our case / Because we live forever.” (#Facts.)
“If it’s raining and you’re running / don’t slip in mud / ’cause if you do / you’ll slip in blood tonight.” (If would take note of this advice if you happen to be potential vampire prey. Watch your step.)
“O you were a vampire and baby / I’m walking dead.” (Very alternative… very dark… very fitting.)
“I’ve killed a million petty souls / But I couldn’t kill you.” (How sweet!)
“I drink blood on Halloween / Yeah, it’s what I need / It makes me feel alive / Sexy blood.” (Extremely straight forward… and primal. I like it.)
“I’d rather drink blood than beer / ’cause I’m a vampire.” (I agree… beer is disgusting anyways.)
“My son the vampire / He’ll make you a wreck / Every time he kisses you / There’ll be two holes in your neck.” (Funny because Sherman himself has admitted that blood indeed does taste good… like father, like son.)
“We suck young blood / we suck young blood.” (It’s pretty much as simple as that… they really do just want the young blood.)
“The vampire’s fingers will dig you as the rain comes pouring through / He’ll scratch you on your back and drain the blood from you.” (Kinky.)
“After the vampire bird sucked blood out of me / he started stabbing me in my ass / then three more vampire birds stabbed me in my ass too / they sucked the blood out of me, killing me.” (Moral of this story: watch your ass… and watch out for those vampire birds that like to suck blood out of it.)
