"Vlad The Impaler" as written by and Sergio / Pizzorno....
Face check I walk this beach
I'm frying in the heat in the cauldron stir me
Chomp down my diamond teeth I ain't got
The simple things in life I feel like
You have got to witness
This is your last retreat
My last repeat

All my friends are as sharp as razors
Cut you down if you touch the faders
High class girls hung in elevators
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

Banshie I hear you call
We need to raise the dead we need to raise the people
Cut throat this blood runs thick
It is true the simple things in life have been lost
You have got to witness
We are the last beatniks
The lost heretics

All my friends are as sharp as razors
Cut you down if you touch the faders
Listen up all you masqueraders
Now we have got the floor
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

    General CommentThis song just makes me want to party, not just the instruments but the lyrics. For me, it feels like he's saying he wants to get out and really live. Do some crazy stuff because he's alive and he can do it right now. Some of the lyrics are really intense if you think about it, referencing homicide and throat cutting (where I assume the song's title came from?), and it gives this song a tone of desperation and intensity. I think Joker is a Heath Ledger reference, too, and a way to sort of say "I'll sleep when I'm dead." Have fun now that you've got the chance because you won't always have it.

    General CommentOMG first comment on this fabulous song

    this is such a great song
    sorry that i have not much to say in the way of a meaning but i must put a comment up

    i think it is just about a killer, just like the title and video clip explain.
    Noel is so scary and cool in the clip

    i think these sorts of songs their meaning can be about anything, like this is about a killer but what are they killing, something physical or emotional, an ideology, society??

    General CommentThis songs awesome, very un-kasabian but a great new sound. i requested this song at my senior prom, they didnt play it of course but i think it would be an awesome dance song.

    i think its about looking on the bright side to be honest
