I will get you.
You will pay, I hope you know.
I am a vampire to you.
I will sneak up and get you.
I’m bad.

And I was afraid.
I will see who I was.
You were the child that I once knew.
I am a saint; I will haunt you at night.
I am the dog that you feed.
Won’t you feed on me?

    I will get you
    You will pay, I hope you know.

    I am a vampire to you
    I will sneak up and get you.
    I'm bad.

    I was afraid I want to see who I was.
    You were the child that I once knew.
    I am a saint, I will haunt you at night.
    I am the dawn as you feed.

    as you feed.
    won't you feed?
    won't you feed on me?

    I could be wrong.

    General Commenti hearrrr....

    I will get you..
    You will pay, I hope you know.
    I am a vampire to you.
    I will sneak up and get you.

    I'm bad...
    I'm bad...
    I'm bad...

    I was afraid, i would see who i was.
    You were the child that i once knew.
    I am a saint, i will haunt you at night.
    I am the dawn as you feed.

    feeeeeed
    as you feeeed.

    won't you feeeeed
    won't you feeeeeeeed
    won't you feeeeeeeed
    won't you feeeeeeeed
    won't you feeeeed on me?
    won't you feeeeed on me?
    won't you feeed, on me?
    won't you feeed, on me?

    sounds right to me.. i'm sure about all of it except "I am the dawn as you feed" but i have no idea what else it could me.
    I could a little dramatic with the "feeeedddd"s there, haha.

    amazing song, one of my favorites for sure <3

    General Commenti noticed it says in the album:
    "verse lyrics on 'i am a vampire' were found by sandy mcleod in toronto, ontario"

    that's sort of interesting, don't you think?
    i would be creeped out if i was sandy mcleod.
    but it was quite the idea to turn them into a song.

    General CommentWhen I saw him do at a Right Away, Great Captain! gig a few months after the record was released, he said that the first verse wasn't even written by him. It was written by a young 8 year old child and he found it and loved it. Incredible that such a young child wrote something so haunting.

    General CommentSo what the hell did that 8 year old girl experience that brought the words of the first verse to her mind? It's so emotional, the depth indescribable for the unshieled soul.
