Crawl 'til dawn
On my hands and knees
God damn these bite marks
Deep in my arteries
Crawl 'til dawn
On my hands and knees
God damn these vampires
For what they've done to me

from The Mountain Goats – Damn These Vampires Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

John writes a lot of songs about his past. In this case he makes a lot of references to his days of heroin use. The vampires find him, attack his arteries (veins) and leave him crippled.
