The Vampire Of Highgate

This song is by Marc Almond and appears on the album The Tyburn Tree (Dark London) (2014).

Red eyes peer from gloom
Of a freshly open tomb
This creature you're seeing
This supernatural being
This black manifestation
As he slips between the graves
Is he real, well I can't say
He's the vampire of Highgate
He's had centuries to wait

You thought him only a rumour
And you talk of him with humour
But don't joke with undead
Or they'll haunt you to bed
His bite may be of ice
As the blood drains from your veins
For your place amongst the graves
He's the vampire of Highgate
He's had centuries to wait

Your flesh is turning blue
He'll feel very real to you
Your mind will boil with fear
You'll see what isn't here
Is he real, well I can't say
As your life ebbs away
He will surely make you pay
He's the vampire of Highgate
He's had centuries to wait

Red eyes peer from gloom
Of a freshly open tomb
This creature you're seeing
This supernatural being
This black manifestation
You'll see what isn't here
You'll feel what isn't real
He's the vampire of Highgate
He's had centuries to wait
