Arctic Monkeys - Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But... Lyrics




I've seen your eyes as they fix on me
What is he doing
What on earth's the plan
Has he got one

You better give me some pointers
Since you are the big rocket launcher
And I'm just the shotgun

Well I ain't got no dollar signs in my eyes
That might be a surprise
But it's true
Said I'm not like you

And I don't want your advice
Or your praise or to move in the ways
You do, and I never will

'Cause all you people are vampires
And all your stories are stale
And though you pretend to stand by us
I know you're certain we'll fail

Well I've seen your eyes
As they fix on me
Full of confusion
Your snarl is just so condescending

Try to explain that we're on to a win
If the fee we get in
Near recoups what we're spending

He said I can't believe
That you drove all that way
Well how much did they pay you?
How much did they pay ya?

You'd have been better to stay round our way
Thinking about things but not actually doing the things

'Cause all you people are vampires
And all your stories are stale
And though you pretend to stand by us
I know you're certain we'll fail

'Cause all you people are vampires
And all your stories are stale
And though you pretend to stand by us
I know you're certain we'll fail

All you people are vampires!

    Great song and great artist !
    I’m french, and I don’t get the meaning of the song. Anyone ?

    SilverKnight

    It seems to be about the corruption and money grubbing of the music industry, comparing record labels to Vampires sucking their clients of all they can take from them as soon as they invite them in

    Sean Heenehan

    my take is that they are talking baout groupies and hanger ons

  10. Paul Mckernan

    Thinkin bout things but not actually doin the things.

    Sleepy Pup

  17. Karolina Temelkova

    I've seen your eyes as they fix on me
    What is he doing

    Has he got one

    You better give me some pointers
    Since you are the big rocket launcher
    And I'm just the shotgun

    Well I ain't got no dollar signs in my eyes
    That might be a surprise
    But it's true
    Said I'm not like you

    And I don't want your advice
    Or your praise or to move in the ways
    You do, and I never will

    'Cause all you people are vampires
    And all your stories are stale

  21. GodNotAvailable

    This is probably the best song on the album.

    André Pinto

    After all the other ones I guess

    Batphoned 78

    Well, I'd say A Certain Romance, From the Ritz to the Rubble, The View ..., Fake Tales...,I Bet ...,When the Sun ..., Riot Van and Dancing Shoes are a bit better...

  22. Chaotic Dumbass

    THE GOOD SHIT

  23. Sim on

    SHAVE YOUR BEARD!!!

  24. Patrick Stone

    Vampires... aka AM fans

    arbys exploror

    Patrick Stone the album or the band?

    I'mSpecial

    DimensionTwelve pretty sure the album because he wouldn’t know this song if he meant the band

    Colton Loney

    @I'mSpecial not necessarily a bad thing. I dont know the context of vampires in this song though

    gp. m

    @Colton Loney people who thought they were wasting time and money driving around england touring on their own, and tried to discourage them. They're saying in the song that they didn't really care for the money, they just wanted to play. Ironically, by distributing their music for free, the album became the fastest selling in uk history at the time

  25. Julia Broussard

    Don't worry: Vampires Will Never Hurt You.

    Chaotic Dumbass

    Julia Broussard ayyyyy

    Isabelle Scales

    Ahh! You know the song!

    GodNotAvailable

    Goddamnit Gerard.

  26. j6355

    starting at 2:30 i like to imagine the singer just headbanging like a madman, thrashing the studio getting himself all worked up while the band keeps ramping up. then when its his turn to come back hes in the far back corner of the room, no where near the mic, shouts his line and then passes out from overexerting himself.

    thatoneweeb
