phantom stranger lyrics

This song's got something of a B-movie vampire fest feel to it. The vampire's all out to seduce this sweet young gal and when she succumbs to his/her? evil ways, she in turn destroys everyone she once loved.

My favorite Zombie song. :)

The more I read the lyrics to this song, the more I think it is about a character in the Dragonlance series of books. His name is Raistlin Majere, and the references to being sly, destroying things that are loved, and the freaks (Live Ones) really fit him.

While I don't think the song was meant to be about Raistlin, I kind of agree...it would seem like the song way be about him in an off sort of way...

Could be that last one (Rob doesn't strike me as a Dungeons and Dragon kinda guy, cool as that idea is), though looking at it he could be writing about himself. "Shapeshifting high and a haunted eye" if you've ever seen Rob's artwork, both of those lines apply to it, usually strangely metaporphosed demons and other haunting figures. The second verse speaks of sinister sounds sweeping the grounds (which Rob does indeed make) though he's not really famous. A lot of people know his name, but he doesn't get mobbed like Ozzy or KoRn, so he kind of lies beneath his own fame. He throws away everything that made him famous, but still his fans stay. This is kinda repeated in the third verse, where he destroyed the things we love (White Zombie and their musical style), but sure of his fans loyalty ad his own skill that he won't need to cling to his old glory, or "see if I remember".

I am not sure what the song is about but I just found out the other day that The Phantom Stranger is a comic book charachter I think you can find it on wikipedia

Does anyone know what the latin in the very beginning means? If indeed it's latin at all? I've always been curious about that.

The part in the beginning is indeed Latin. I'm not sure of what it says, but I do know that it is a funeral rite performed on one's grave before being buried.

Rob Zombie not a D&D kind guy? LOL!

The beginning of the song is a 300+ year old Latin requiem read durning the burial of murder victims:

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant anima eius et animae omnium fidelium defunctorum per misericordium dei requiescant in pace.

Rest eternal grant them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. To rest the being and the soul, wholly faithful in death, in the prescence of mercy may they rest in peace.

Just wanted to correct ajdimarc...<br /> The latin part of the song is from the Catholic latin requiem for the dead.<br /> <br /> The first 2 lines are translated correctly, however, the last line in that bit is actually: <br /> "Anima eius et animae ominium fidelium defunctorum per Die misericordiam requiescant in pace."<br /> <br /> Which means:<br /> "May his soul, and the souls of all the departed faithful, by god's mercy, rest in peace."

Lyrics Return of the Phantom Stranger

  • Written by :

Shape shifting high And a haunted eye Falling plastic and paper demons!

No trace of time I′m branded sly I am your ghostmaster baby free me All you know Is alone You see a Phantom Stranger! Down you go All alone You love my Phantom Stranger! My sinister sounds Sweep the grounds Still-born I lie beneath it I throw it away The freaks all stay Deformed and laughing screaming! All you know Is alone You see a Phantom Stranger! Down you go All alone You love my Phantom Stranger! She lies there, waiting for the sacrifice A wretched heart In the dark decay Dominate forever... Destroy the things you love And see if I remember All you know Is alone You see a Phantom Stranger! Down you go All alone You love my Phantom Stranger!

Writer(s): Rob Zombie, Scott Humphrey

The Phantom of the Opera - I Remember/Stranger Than You Dream It Lyrics

Artist: The Phantom of the Opera

Album: Miscellaneous

Genre: Musical

phantom stranger lyrics

I remember there was mist Swirling mist upon a vast, glassy lake There were candles all around And on the lake there was a boat And in the boat there was a man Who was that shape in the shadows? Whose is the face in the mask? Damn you! You little prying Pandora You little demon is this what you wanted to see? Curse you! You little lying Delilah You little viper now you cannot ever be free! Damn you, curse you Stranger than you dreamt it Can you even dare to look Or bear to think of me This loathsome gargoyle Who burns in hell But secretly yearns for Heaven Secretly secretly But, Christine Fear can turn to love You'll learn to see To find the man Behind this monster This repulsive carcass Who seems a beast But secretly dreams of beauty Secretly, secretly Oh, Christine Come we must return Those two fools Who run my theater Will be missing you
