Feast like pagans
Never get enough
Sleep like dead men
Wake up like dead men
And when the sun comes
Try not to hate the light
Someday we'll try
To walk upright

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


The nighttime is a more active time for vampires, and drug users. Drug users feast on drugs during the night and usually don’t go out at night, much like vampires. John compassionately speaks for them “someday we’ll try to walk upright”, aka, someday we’ll get clean.
