"Dracula" as written by and Damon(2d)/hewlett Albarn....
(I am a vampire!)
(Rest is good for the blood!)

Percentage of us toll the line
The rest of us out of reach
Everybody party time
Some of us will never sleep again

Dracula
Dracula Dracula
Dracula Dracula

Percentage of us toll the line
Rest of us out of reach
Everybody party time
Some of us will never sleep again

Dracula
Dracula Dracula
Dracula Dracula

    Song MeaningIt isn't about drugs. It's about struggling through the daily trials and barely making it. Also, some of you get the lyrics wrong. So first, here are the correct lyrics:
    "I am a vampire!"

    (Some of us just toe the line...
    the rest of us are out of reach.
    Everybody, party time.
    Some of us
    will never sleep again.)

    "Rest is good for the blood!"

    (Repeat of chorus)
    Dracula,
    Dracula, Dracula.
    Dracula, Dracula.

    (Repeat of chorus)
    Dracula,
    Dracula, Dracula.
    Dracula, Dracula.

    Meanings:

    People struggle to make it. Either you barely make it, or you're "out of reach." But you should celebrate to pass the time, because you'll never sleep again. You'll be too busy working, becoming more and more like the living dead, "I am a vampire!". "Rest is good for the blood." You get no rest, you have no blood. Vampires themselves do not have blood, so they must drink the blood of others.



    This song has so much meaning and people over look it. That and it's just kick ass. It's not about drugs, or any of that other stuff. I'd bet my bottom dollar on that.

    General Commentman, its "rest is good for the blood" This is from the old bugs bunny cartoons where Bugs travels to Trannsylvania. There is also a faint "I am a vampire" right in the beginning

    General Comment... I, too, have to wonder why everyone thinks Gorillaz equals drugs. *sighs* 2D is a huge monster movie fan. He especially likes zombie and vampire movies. The song is exactly what it sounds like. A song about Count Dracula. It's obscure, yes, but if you've ever listened to anything 2D says, you know he always talks like that.

    Besides, a lot of stuff in the song is really obscure references to monster movies. "Some of us will never sleep again," for instance, is a quote from a Dracula movie

    General CommentThis song is about Extacy..Read between the lines and think about it. The percentage of us tow the line
    The rest of us out of reach
    ''Everybody party time
    Some of us will never sleep again''
    These 2 lines sum it up best.
