Dracula's Shadow

Story Behind The Song

At some point, everyone meets an individual that you give what you can and they just take, take, and take, essentially pulling/sucking from you what they can. In this sense, Elliott used the term Dracula to describe such individuals. Interestingly, you give and give and only want to give more, as if you were under their control. The flip/fun side is that you can also listen to this song in the sense that the singer is yearning for "the Dracula."

Song Description

In the vampire-sense, Dracula is a unique and somewhat sexy character, based on pop culture. In this song, the meaning of Dracula alters between "the Dracula" and an individual that is your Dracula. Dracula, the vampire, is lusted after in one respect and/or the flip term of Dracula is used to describe a lover that sucks everything from you but you keep coming back for more, as if under their control. The key and fun to this song is understanding the alteration.

Lyrics

I want you to know that I've been watchin' you,
with those beautiful red eyes, and I'm comin' for you.

Dracula, I wanna be with you, and your evil ass.
So, see me--see me now.

Dracula, I wanna live forever--I wanna be your killer.

Kill-kill me! Kill-kill me! Kill-kill me! Kill-kill me!
I wanna be your killer.

Dracula, I'm not a saint; so, let me be a sinner.

I am yours.

Dracula, I think only of you, and your evil ways.
So, love me--love me now.

I'll--I'll be yours.
Let me be yours.
I am yours.
Let me be yours.
