And if they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
And if they get me and the sun goes down
And if they get me take this spike and
You put the spike in my heart

And if the sun comes up
Will it tear the skin right off our bones?
And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks
I saw you there
Someone get me to the doctor, someone get me to a church
Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
And if they come and get me
And if, you put the spike in my heart

And if they get me and the sun goes down
And if they get me take this spike and
(Come on)
Can you take this spike?
Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless nighttime sky?
Can you take this spike?
Will it wash away this jet black feeling?

And now the nightclub set the stage for this
"They come in pairs," she said
We'll shoot back holy water like cheap whiskey
They're always there
Someone get me to the doctor, and someone call the nurse
And someone buy me roses, and someone burned the church
We're hanging out with corpses, and driving in this hearse
And someone save my soul tonight, please save my soul

Can you take this spike?
Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless nighttime sky?
Can you take this spike?
Will it wash away the jet black now?
(Let's go, come on)

And as these days watch over time
And as these days watch over time
And as these days watch over us tonight
And as these days watch over time
And as these days watch over time
And as these days watch over us tonight
I'll never let them, I'll never let them
I'll never let them hurt you now tonight
I'll never let them, I can't forget them
I'll never let them hurt you, I promise

Struck down before our prime
Before you got off the floor
Can you stake my heart, can you stake my heart?

Can you stake my heart, can you stake my heart?
(Can these thoughts of endless night
Bring us back into the light
And this venom from my heart?)

Can you stake my heart, can you stake my heart?
(Can these thoughts of endless night
Bring us back into the light?
Kill this venom from my heart)

Can you stake me before the sun goes down?

(And as always, innocent like rollercoasters
Fatality is like ghosts in snow and you have no idea what you're up against
Because I've seen what they look like
Becoming perfect as if they were sterling silver chainsaws going cascading...)

    General Commenti think this song can also be interpreted a different way...
    lets put the vampires as a synonym for the society."If they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
    And if they get me take this spike to my heart"
    he never wants to be just as ignorant and heartless like the present society.
    "We're hanging out with corpses, we're driving in this hearse" most people are dead and have no feelings, its just all about money
    "Someone call the doctor, someone get me to a church
    Where they can pump this venom gaping hole"
    he searches for a place where he cannot be influenced by this dead society, which he is everyday
    "We'll shoot back holy water like cheap whiskey they're always there"
    he and the people with him will fight against this loss of feelings, but they will always be there in our life

    "I'll never let them, I'll never let them
    I'll never let them hurt you now tonight
    I'll never let them, I can't forget them
    I'll never let them hurt you, I promise"

    he will never let the girl he loves (or someone else) be as dead as the society...

    dunno...just a thought that came up my mind. could be completely wrong :)
    peace

    ~you laugh at me coz i'm different, i laugh at you coz you're all the same~

    General Commentto me, this song makes me think that this song is about him trying to quit the lifestyle (sex, drugs and drinking)associated with nightlife. the druggies and partiers that bring you down with them are the vampires, the temptation--if he falls, will she just kill him so he won't have to keep living like this forever. the hangovers, everything associated with this negative but engaging, addictive, alluring lifestyle.

    My InterpretationMy Interpretation is basically the narrator,the vampire, willing to sacrifice their own life to save that of the one they love. 'I'll never let them hurt you, I promise'

    General Commentalright, here's my remastered intepretation of "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" ;) :
    -----------------------------------------------------
    vampires=synonym for the society (in reference to anton lavey's satanic bible). He describes a "pychic vampire as follows (as much as i remember...long time ago, that i read it): A psychic vampire is a person who wears a mask and pretends to be somehow, that he is not. He is only nice to you, when he wants something and takes advantage of you. He has no feelings and is as cold as a vampire and he soaks you. You can't trust them and they have to die (says a.lavey)

    ---------------------------------------------------

    And if they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
    [If they get him=he becomes one of them, the sun=his heart will disappear]
    And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
    he rather wants to be dead than becoming one of them]
    And if they get me and the sun goes down
    [s.a.]
    And if they get me take this spike and
    You put the spike in my heart
    [s.a.]

    And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
    [if the sun=the heart comes up, it will tear the skin off our bodies=the masks we waer everyday will disappear and only our inner-selves will remain ]
    And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
    [the vampires infect us with their virus=no feelings, dead...]
    Someone call the doctor, someone get me to a church
    [he searches for a place or someone to rescue him, church=place of god=only the feelings, the innerselves count, god sees through our masks; the church cannot be entered by the vampires]
    Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
    [heal him from the virus of the society]
    And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
    [you can't reveal you inner feelings, your inner-selve in our present society our else you're week or a loser]
    And if they come and get me
    You put the spike in my heart
    [s.a.]

    And if they get me and the sun goes down
    And if they get me take this spike and
    -Chorus-
    Can you take this spike?
    [s.a.]
    Will it fill our hearts with thoughts of endless
    Night time sky
    [not sure]
    Can you take this spike?
    Will it wash away this jet black feeling?
    [they spike=death as only possibility to get away from this OR this jet black feeling he has, coz no one understands him or coz the society's too dead, only money counts]

    And now the nightclub set the stage for this they come in pairs she said
    [the fake world of nightclubs, bars, etc...]
    We'll shoot back holy water like cheap whiskey they're always there
    [they/he will fight against this, they won't surrender]
    Someone get me to the doctor, and someone call the nurse
    [s.a.]
    And someone buy me roses, and someone burned the church
    [he searches for someone who is with him; the place to escape is gone]
    We're hanging out with corpses, we're driving in this hearse
    [corpses=the dead society which surrounds him every day, hearse=maybe life]
    Someone save my soul tonight, please save my soul
    [pretty obvious ;)]
    -Chorus-

    And as these days watch over time, and as these days watch over time
    [hm...not sure]
    And as these days watch over us tonight
    I'll never let them, I'll never let them
    I'll never let them hurt you now tonight
    [he won't let them hurt his love/his friend]
    I'll never let them, I can't forget them
    I'll never let them hurt you, I promise
    [s.a.]
    Struck down, before our prime
    Before, you got off the floor
    [also not sure, i'll think about that]
    Can you stake my heart? Can you stake my heart?
    Can you stake me before the sun goes down?
    [s.a.]

    ----------------------------------------------------

    someone understands what he's whispering at the end?? something with `ghosts in the snow´. I don't know....

    tell me what you think about it....

    General Commentoh damn, ghosts in the snow. snow=white, ghosts=white (or invisible), means you can't see them. Means you can't see who's a vampire and who's not on the first sight. so watch out.... ;)

    General CommentI think that somebody was thinking about vampires and wrote a song. I dont think it needs to be analyzed all too much. It's an excellent song but I mean, usually the fans come up with some incredibly morbid, deep meaning for the song and the band will say they got the idea from eating count chocula. but very good analyses nonetheless :D
