Song of the Day: Eyes of a Stranger by Queensryche

If you know me, you know that Operation: Mindcrime is one of my all time favorite albums. I can listen to it over and over, still today.

Eyes Of A Stranger

All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what we had and what we knew
Everytime I try to leave it behind me
I see something that reminds me of you
Every night the dreams return to haunt me
Your rosary wrapped around your throat
I lie awake and sweat, afraid to fall asleep
I see your face looking back at me
CHORUS
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I’ve always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
Frome eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

Is this all that’s left
Of my life before me
Straight-jacket memories, sedative highs
No happy ending like they’ve always promised
There’s got to be something left for me
CHORUS
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I’ve always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
Frome eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

How many times must I live this tragedy
How many more lies will they tell me
All I want is the same as everyone
Why am I here, and for how long
CHORUS
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I’ve always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
Frome eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

  1. Best song on the best album ever. Too bad Geoff Tate has gone totally insane.

    • So true. Very sad with Geoff Tate, too, since he has always been one of my favorite singers. And this is my favorite album as well. 🙂
