"Dracula's Lament" as written by and Jason Segel....
It's getting kind of hard to believe
things are going to get better
I've been drowning too long to believe
that the tide's going to turn

And I've been living too hard to believe
that things are going to get easier now
I'm still trying to shake off the pain
from the lessons I've learned

And if I see Van Helsing, I swear
to the Lord I will slay him!
A-ha-ha-haa! Take it from me
I swear I will let it be so! A-ha-ha-haa!

Blood will run down his face
when he is decapitated, ah!
his head on my mantle is how
I will let this world know

How much I love you
die, die, die!
I can't.

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song. I cant believe no one has commented on it yet. It seems pretty simple at first, but it really is pretty damn deep and beautiful. I love it.

    Oh and i think the meaning of this song is how dracula is misunderstood. All he wants is love but he cant get it and he looks like the bad guy.

    General CommentI love how the beginning of the song is just so melancholy and beautiful, and it expresses times and emotions that we can all relate to, and then just gets all about dracula. if anyone has seen "interview with a vampire" this song relates to brad pitt's character... except for the van helsing part, i don't think he was in that movie. I love forgetting sarah marshall and this song just makes it that much more of an original movie.

    General CommentBeing alive too long to be optimist.
    Even with being alive too long, love still hurts.
    Through the death of the guy that one-upped him, he can almost, almost live with the fact that the love of his life did not choose him.

    Lyric CorrectionThe line "I've been trying to shake off the pain"
    should be: "I'm still trying to shake off the pain"

    And I also think that the line, "His head on my mantle is how I will let this one go, how much I love you."
    Should be: "His head on my mantle is how I will let this world know, how much I love you."

    Love this song!
