Extracted from the Scatologly LP, 1984. Concerning several species of Vampire. “…for instance, there are honeyguides who, like cuckoos, lay their eggs in the nest of other species. The baby honeyguide is equipped with a sharp hooked beak. As soon as he hatched out, while still blind, naked, and otherwise helpless, he scythes and slashes his foster brothers and sisters to death.” – The Selfish Gene, Oxford University Press, 1976.

Lyrics:

Was all in vain, or did you cry?
No need to ask; my tears have run dry
This is the end of my pity
I wait to die

You now the living, me now the dead
You now the living, me now the dead

To prove that you loved me
Mere words could not have said
Biting into skin, into flesh, into me
Taking all you could
Oh, I’d still give you blood
Just to paint your lips
If you should wish them red
My desire is your kiss completed
But only now I can see
The vicious joy when you took delight
Behind each kiss your poison bite
And when my all was given
And you had taken
Oh, dog-like Judas, you did disappear

Was all in vain, or did you cry?
No need to ask

You now the living, me now the dead
You now the living, me now the dead
