Rob Zombie – 17 Year Locust Lyrics 13 years ago
The liner notes:

Electric black nite crash, hunger on your face
Opium heat rash, suffocate this place
Well I see the sun burning in your eye
I see the sun call a suicide (ome on)

17 year locust
If not now, when? (x4)

Tombstone eyes roam up and down your skin
Assassinate the mindframe nothing left to win
I see the sun burning in your eye
I see the sun call a suicide (come on)

17 year locust
If not now, when? (x4)

Enchanted on the highway, all the freaks collide
One minute longer - you start the slide
Well, I ain't the one burning in your eye
I ain't the one call a suicide (come on)

17 year locust
If not now, when? (x4)

Rob Zombie – American Witch Lyrics 13 years ago
Body of a monkey and the feet of the cock
Dragged from her home on the killing rock
The lacked all died on the weather vane
The devil's in a cat in the babies brain

Yeah Yeah
Of the American (4x)
Witch

Yeah
Alone on the hill and ready to die
The kids of the darkness so black and high
Mark of the wolf and the sun and the cat
The Angels beat down above the rack

We all pray for
20 innocents
We all bow down
20 innocents
We all hang high
20 innocents
We all accuse
20 innocents

Yeah Yeah
Of the American (4x)
Witch

Do you want to know where the genes come from
Some showed faith and some showed none (2x)

We all pray for
20 innocents
We all bow down
20 innocents
We all hang high
20 innocents
We all accuse
20 innocents

Yeah Yeah
Of the American (4x)

Do you want to know where the genes come from
Some showed their faith and some showed none
Do you want to know where the genes come from

Yeah Yeah
Of the american
Witch

This one I'm even less sure of than 17 Year Locust, but I've made those corrections. It's clearly about the Salem witch trials.

Come on

One minute longer, you start to slide
Well I ain't the one burnin' in your eye
I ain't the one call us to die.
Come on

17 year locust
We don't know when (4x)

That's what I got. I'm not too sure about 'speedin' there in the third verse, but I can't figure out what else would be there.

Rob Zombie – How To Make A Monster Lyrics 13 years ago
Well, honestly, reading anything into most of Rob's songs is fruitless. He's said himself he tries to NOT put any meaning into most of his songs, but sometimes it just happens.

I find it a fun past time to try to find a deeper meaning, because I'm weird like that.

White Zombie – Black Sunshine Lyrics 14 years ago
Plus, Iggy Pop. Maybe it's about sex with Iggy Pop while he's high, and how it feels like you've been HIT by a 400 horsepower Mustang afterward, 'cuz all his crazy drug sperm is up in you. No? Fine.

Damn, now there's a person does their research. I love this song and always wondered what it was about. (I too made a love interpretation *hangs head*)

Thanks for enlightening me!

I second that. I love the way they say the line "Do you know what it means to feel like God?"

White Zombie – Real Solution #9 Lyrics 14 years ago
*nods* The song's about Charles Manson. Rob has attested to this himself. "Real Solution #9" refers to suicide, I believe. Could be wrong, though.

White Zombie – Thunder Kiss '65 Lyrics 14 years ago
I would reckon it's about Rob, because yes, he was born in January of 1965. Most of the song seems just thrown together, but the line "what's new pussycat, can you dig the satisfaction" is the meshing of a song title and an old saying; "What's New Pussycat?" and "Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back".

Rob Zombie – The Ballad of Resurrection Joe and Rosa Whore Lyrics 14 years ago
Oooo, good eye, murasaki vchan21. Rob is a well-known fan of the Crow movies which have a similar theme of wrongful death and vengence from beyond the grave.

Rob Zombie – Spookshow Baby Lyrics 14 years ago
I was gonna say something about sex with hot goth girls at rock shows, but now that I look at the line "Bright glove, mad love", the song is clearly about Micheal Jackson.

Rob Zombie – Return Of The Phantom Stranger Lyrics 14 years ago
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".

Rob Zombie – Iron Head Lyrics 14 years ago
That's a prety good observation, Dajango. It's actually changed my perceptions on the song. Here's my take;

The first verse does indeed convey that decadence and the rebellious tendencies of metal heads. The second one suggests that the metalheads are actually becoming commonplace and punishing those that used to hold them down. The third and fourth verse re-instill the theme of rebellion and revolution. I like the chorus myself.

"iron head- regenerate
iron head-exterminate
iron head-liberate and crucify you"

It re-iterates most of the points before, but more clearly; the metal heads can't be cut down, they'll always come back up, try though you might to exterminate them. They will liberate themselves, and crucify you for opressing them.

Rob Zombie – How To Make A Monster Lyrics 14 years ago
It's about rape. A sexy young jailbait girl in the park gets taken down by a "wolf" (ie; a predator). "Time will tell if your baby is insane" reflects that a lot of people believe children born of rape are doomed to a life of misery and insanity. "A child bride with bloody eyes" refers to the "virgin" Mary, mother of Jesus. It's said that statues of the Virgin Mary weep tears of blood when a horrible child is born, hence the Satan on the brain. Garbage in, garbage out, essentially, though on a much more dramatic scale.

Rob Zombie – Feel So Numb Lyrics 14 years ago
First of all, one of those lyrics is wrong. It's...

"Django drag a coffin nail across your back"

... not that Jingle Jangle nonsense. Secondly, I think this is one of those songs Rob just threw things together on. He does that on most of his songs; makes an effort to not put any meaning into them, but sometimes ends up giving songs meanings he never intended to. Then again, sometimes they have meaning because he wanted them to.

Rob Zombie – Demonoid Phenomenon Lyrics 14 years ago
It's a song about necrophilia (having sex with dead people), or killing a person halfway through sex. Enough lines point to death/dead bodies and sex.
