Dracula From Houston Lyrics

Got no future, great big past
Little bitty guy on the rim of my glass.
Gotta meet the plane, so I can get my monkey

    This song is about "Mid-Life Crisis."

    It's all in the chorus about "Why We Gotta Die", And "I Know That You'll Miss Me, I'm Never, Never, Never Coming Home."

    It's all about going along normal in life then getting to a certain age and realising life is short then trying to re-invent yourself as some men do, Like leaving their wives and taking up strange or stupid hobbies etc

    The Dracula From Houston title is just referring to someone's futile attempt to stay young !

    "Dracula from houston", Dracula's weakness Is sunlight, Houston is in Texas, Texas has alot of sunlight,this song is comparing our lifespan to a vampire in sunlight, and it's telling us to spend it wisely.
