Notes by Director Ty Arnold

Last year Scott approached me to direct a music video for Transylvania Crush, a sort of vampire love song. The music was sad, dark, and very beautiful. He mentioned shooting it in Romania, and it piqued my interest; I'd been filming homeless kids on the streets of Bucharest over a period of 12 years, and I finally felt I had an emotional song to match the sobering footage I had collected. We did one more trip out filming, and the result is a haunting portrait of what it's like up close for these street kids, living in and around the sewers of Bucharest.

- Ty Arnold

lyrics

Lyrics:

You said you don’t want to sleep in the dark with me / It’s just I can’t stand the light in my eyes when it falls down on me / Your blood, my blood, oh well, now it all tastes the same / Have a taste, remove the pain and step into my technicolor shade

You kiss my lips and I bite your wrists / I got a crush on you why don’t you come follow me? / Your blood, my blood, oh well, now they’re one and the same / Just a taste, remove the pain, you’re welcome to my technicolor shade

My love for you / Starts when life ends for you / I’m holding on to night and to you / I’ll have forever when I have you

We’re gonna hang from the tree of life and burn out all the lights / We’re gonna hang from the tree of life and burn our eyes / Your blood, my blood, oh well, now we’re one and the same / I stab into the taste of you and now I know I’ll never thirst again

My love for you / Starts when life ends for you / I’m holding on to night and to you / I’ll have forever when I have you
