The Origin Of The Species Lyrics

by Elton John. From Lestat The Musical

Indulge me if you will, my friends
For I've a tale to spin
Of all the vampires on this earth
Of my unholy kin
I am the oldest one by far
Marius is my name
When I was born it was the time
The Roman Empire reigned…

When he was born it was the time
The Roman Empire reigned

Unlike you mortals as you age
The weaker you become
For us it's quite the opposite
The years just make us strong
But like you we feel pain and loss
And suffer heartbreak too
We ponder our existence
In the same way as you do

We ponder our existence
In the same as you do

In the myth of your Creation
There's bold Adam and sweet Eve
Temptation, and a serpent,
And the devil's apple tree.
We have Enkil and Akasha
An Egyptian King and Queen
The Mother and the Father
Of we pale and bloody fiends

The Mother and the Father
Of we pale and bloody fiends
Marius, tell us more
Marius, tell us more
Tell us more, tell us more
Marius…tell us more

Four thousand years ago
Before the pyramids were built
Enkil and Akasha ruled
With wise benevolence.
The splendor of Egyptian life
Was prosperous and good
But in their kingdom
Enemies were present

And so it happened that a demon
Came into the town
And took a liking to the home
Of some unfortunate
Who pleaded to wise Enkil
For his council and advice
Before his home this demon desecrated

The king in all his faith
Decided to engage the ghoul
In hopes his evil ways by chance
He might dissuade
The Queen would not allow her King
To face this deal alone
And in her choice
The hand of fate was played.

The demon tosses the furniture
His malevolence abounding
And while they pleaded to be heard
They found themselves surrounded
Assassins from the enemy
Their collective knives a-gleaming
Hacked and stabbed the royal pair
And left the bodies bleeding.

As they lay dying on the ground
The poltergeist did swoop
And entered in the wounds
Of their illustrious monarchy
Their reanimated bodies
Bore a terrifying glow
Alive to them
But dead to you and me

The demon in their veins
They gained a supernatural power
But one that left them
Sorely lack human traits
No longer to partake of food and drink
Or bear a child
Their hunger only blood
Can satiate

They could not face the blazing sun
It's magnificence was deadly
But the power of Gods and Eternal Life
Is a truly wonderful medley.

In the sands of Egypt to this day
Dwell Enkil and Akasha
The rulers of the Vampire race
Our loving Mother and Father…
