  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track from the seventh album by British electronica/soul group, Morcheeba. Multi-instrumentalist Ross Godfrey explained the song's meaning: "That's about an ex-priest vampire bounty hunter, who goes around seeking revenge on bad guys and bandits, whose blood he drinks like lemonade. It seemed a bit weird at first, but the more I thought about, the cooler it sounded. It's a strange simile, and the fact that it became the album title is even more bizarre. But vampires are pretty hip nowadays - all those movies where the music is really loud and the characters just whisper the screenplay."
