All things being equal, we like to think that we live in a world where anyone can do anything, in which any dream is achievable given enough hard work. Of course, this is entirely poppycock, and those born in the wrong situations can be trapped in what could have been and what they cannot and never will be able to achieve, just like a vampire pumpkin without teeth.


Vampire pumpkin
Why can't you speak to me?
Vampire pumpkin
Spent his life in vein
Trying to kill
But kill it no can
Oh vampire pumpkin
It's a pitiable tale
I left you outside,
And now you're trying to die
But there's nothing to do
You're a pumpkin with grooves
You could dance when you need to
But you don't have no teeth
What's a vampire pumpkin to do?
What's a vampire pumpkin to do?

What's a vampire pumpkin to do?

Vampire pumpkin
Staying up 'till midnight
Then it died
'Cause it's a vampire pumpkin
Vampire pumpkin
No luck for you
Because you're a vampire pumpkin!

What's a vampire pumpkin to do?
