Steve Hackett – Vampyre With A Healthy Appetite lyrics

As New Orleans slips far away
When the gas lights dim and the street cars fade
When the beast within takes on a new shape
The blood runs cold make no mistake
You're just a vampyre with a healthy appetite
And you stay awake half the night
A band strikes up and they're starting to play
When the sirens wail but they're way too late
The crowds don't see they're drunk anyway
The inquest said it was coming her way
You're just a vampyre with a healthy appetite
And you stay awake half the night
Well you ran to ground as you always do
And then they finally caught up with you
Well they sent you down and Old Smokey was waiting but pressure
Groups being what they are these days you were released after five
Years at a funny farm in upstate bankrupt
New York to walk the streets once more
