Dead! - Phantom Lyrics




Okay!

The camera pans 'round
Yeah, we all lose our focus
They came and shot our hands
And then they tried to choke us
Oh, I'll play the game
I'm the king of jokers
And my twilight eyes they won't know why
So, let me feel you (Hey!)
I have so much to say
And if you're there with me
Well I will pave the way
To a pursuit of broken knuckled steel
Represent a time when we had no will

(Oh oh oh oh)
This is the only life we know (oh oh oh oh)
But I don't care for another (oh oh oh oh)
Oh, you say I'll see you around
You won't see me 'cause I, I am a phantom

The gentleman guarding the door
Well they caught up his neck
Marks of a broken jaw
But I won't draw the line
Where the knife starts
Well, it's so hard to find an innocent heart
Down fearful lighted streets
Where the showgirls go
For a smoke out back
After the show
Another dream, brought way down
It's just what happens in these parts of this town

(Oh oh oh oh)
This is the only life we know (oh oh oh oh)
But I don't care for another (oh oh oh oh)
Oh, you say I'll see you around
You won't see me 'cause I, I am a phantom

(Oh oh oh oh)
This is the only life we know (oh oh oh oh)
But I don't care for another (oh oh oh oh)
Oh, you say I'll see you around
You won't see me 'cause I, I am a phantom

So can you hear me now
Amongst this battle crowd?
We won't let them in
But we won't lock them out
Let's go on the road

[Spoken]
Don't walk through this city alone
It's not for those free of heart to roam
But neither is any city, apart from one city I know
But I'm not a free heart either, I charge by the day
With a lack of any connection with anyone in any way
But I guess that's the price I pay
To follow what I want and I need to say
And if I'm trapped then I'll crawl
And I'll fight 'till I find what I'm finally doing all this for
Anyway

(Oh oh oh oh)
This is the only life we know (oh oh oh oh)
But I don't care for another (oh oh oh oh)
Oh, you say I'll see you around
You won't see me 'cause I, I am a phantom

Quaking for this one

(Oh oh oh oh)
This is the only life we know (oh oh oh oh)
But I don't care for another (oh oh oh oh)
Oh, you say I'll see you around
You won't see me 'cause I, I am a phantom

Oh
We are in time
For the night's recall
Alive, alive
So can you hear me now
Amongst this battle crowd?
We won't let them in
But we won't lock them out
Let's go on the road

Yeah

Dead! Phantom Comments
  1. Sr. El Spike

    Esta perrona la rolona

  2. Veronika Straková

    Spotify recommended this to me. Thank you, Spotify. They're so fucking good

  3. Just1BandFan

    Ok I heard this song randomly on Spotify and now I'm obsessed!! I've listened to them for like an hour and I haven't found a song by them that I don't like!!!!!

  4. J. L. Harvey

    I think these guys would be a lot of fun to see live.

  5. never let this go

    they are so hella good live!!
    I’ve heard them like a month ago in italy and i also meet them and let me tell you that Alexander (the singer) is the nicest dude i’ve ever had the honor to meet

  6. Bayraktar

    I'm listening in Turkey and i love you You are fucking amazing

  7. Elle Tyson

    Love themm, meeting them was amazinggg, they’re honestly so fuckin genuin and funny x

  8. alma

    i love this so much ah

  9. MARCUS BRODOSC

    I feel like it's only a misconception that people think they sound like MCR

  10. MARCUS BRODOSC

    More cowbell

  11. Suburbia

    People saying it sounds like mcr is kinda silly i think. To me it sounds like Nirvana's first album bleach, it's a little more hardcore then Dead's newer stuff (SMO, Enough, Up For Ran$om) because, like in Bleach in contrast to Nirvanas later stuff like Smells like teen spirit, Drain You, and come as you are, the gocals are more aggressive and pushy ? I don't know how to explain it but it's the same concept with different bands. Another reason they remind of Nirvana is that one of the guitarists looks like Kurt Cobain and in the Up For Ran$om video, uses a Fender Jaguar like Kurt did. And many of their riffs and melodies are like Nirvana's but with a Dead! Twist which i love, (You're So Cheap, the riff before the chorus of Skin reminds me of Scentless Aprentice) I'm not saying that Dead! Is unoriginal, not at all, if they were then i would probably have not liked them. They just have an energetic and relatable sound that just resonates with people.

    never let this go

    Suburbia BLESS YOUR SOUL

  12. Blue Bell

    Hell yeah! They're on Spotify!

  13. Maya Duke

    We finally got the lyrics here you go:

    The camera pans round
    And we all lose our focus
    They came and tied our hands
    And then they tried to choke us
    I will play the game
    I'm the king of joker's
    And by twilight eyes they will know of us
    So let me feel you hey
    I have so much to say
    And if you bare with me eell I will pave the way to a pursuit of broken knuckles still represent a time 

    This is the only life we know and I don't care for another
    Oh you said 'I'll see you around'
    You won't see me cause I, I am a phantom

    The gentleman guarding the door
    Ink all up his neck
    Marks of a broken jaw
    I will draw the line where where the night starts
    It's so hard to find an innocent heart
    Filth will line the streets where the showgirls go out and smoke them back after the show
    Another dream runaway down
    its just what happens in these parts of this town

    So can you hear me now amongst this foul crowd
    We won't let then in and we will lock them out let's go on the run

    As I walk through this city alone it is not for those free of heart to roam but neither is any city apart from one city I know, but I'm not a free heart either I charge by the day with a lack of any connection with anyone in any way but I guess it's the price I pay to follow what I want and what I need to say and if I'm trapped then I'll claw and I'll fight until I finally find what I'm doing all this for anyway

    *You're crazy for this one Weller yeah*

  40. patricia

    this is weird because he sounds like gerard, but at the same time he doesnt

    Left Handed Lyons

    patrihr13 It's because of the way he pronounces words. He stretches words and the background screaming before the chorus.

    I saw these guys last night and they were amazing and got to meet them afterwards and were some of the nicest guys I've met

  60. MyLaina Ratliff

    @Jemma Simone I don't know if you still care but its as follows:
    Don't walk through this city alone
    It is not for those free of heart to roambut neither is any city apart from one city I know
    but I'm not a free heart either
    I charged by the day with the lack of connection with anyone
    anyway
    but I guess that's just the price i pay
    to follow what I want
    What i need to say
    and If I'm trapped then I claw and ill fight
    Until I finally find what I'm doing all this for 
    Anyway

  73. Kloe Robinson

    Love it :D

  74. Zachary Carey

    I hear influences from My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, and Say Anything. I'm curious to see how, and if, they develop into something more.

    MaskedHatred

    lol your picture goes with your comment. "Im curious" *feels chin*

    Isa Bulthuis

    i also hear a little bit of panic at the disco, in the rythms and guitar parts, but thats just my opinion :)
