Babylon is a vampire. It sucks the blood of people and turn dem into zombies. Human sell his/her own soul to Babylon because dem think to have profit from it. There is no profit - only gold coins....

Those who take advantage of others for their own gain. A vampire sucks the blood of others for their own well being. Bob Marley sings the babylon system is the vampire, sucking the blood of the children day by day.

He is talking about the wicked in the world who are causing so many problems in Creation. The misleaders of the nations.

Here are the lyrics that I found online, I didn't review the lyrics, so I don't know if everything is right.

----------------------
unnu old vampire
you don't like to see youths prosper
only like to see youths suffer
unnu set of vampire

unnu old vampire
only trod upon creation
with your bloody meditation
unnu set of vampire

unnu fight against upfullness
unnu fight against creation
unnu fight against
everything good for the younger generation

unnu old vampire
do unnu wickedness at midnight
and unnu humble when it's daylight
unnu set of vampire

unnu old vampire
only like to see blood running
but true you know it's fire bunnin'
unnu set of vampire

now unnu fight against upfullness
fight against creation
fight against everything good for the younger generation

unnu old vampire
only trod upon creation
sucking the blood of the nation
unnu set of vampire

unnu old vampire
unnu drink up the old wine
have no place for the new mind
unnu set of vampire

unnu fight against morality
you fight against integrity
fight against everything good for the younger generation

unnu old vampire
only trod upon creation
with your bloody meditation
unnu set of vampire

unnu old vampire
do unnu wickedness at midnight
and unnu humble when it's daylight
unnu set of vampire

unnu old vampires

unnu grieve their brnk? Lord

unnu fire burial

unnu hypocrite the world, God

unnu old vampire
do unnu wickedness every night
and unnu humble when daylight
unnu old...

Yes and thanks:

I and the people I hang with too use this desciption of vampire. I think that there are alot of vampires in this world. Where I live, it is not too hard to see them in every day. They cant look you in the eye for long, here in montana they pretty much rule. It is not the mythical vampire to be aware of, it is the one in front of your eyes.

blessed peace

Here is something I found that Peter Tosh said about vampires.

-----------------------------------
Vampires don't come out and bite your neck anymore. They cause something destructive to happen that blood will spill. And those invisible vampires will get their meals.
