i come from down in the catacombs of the opera house.
i hide my face while i long for her.
while i long for her lovely voice.
i long for her lovely voice.
her lovely voice. her lovely voice.
she sings la da da da.
through every crack the voice of an angel.
she doesn't know who i am, for i am a ghost.
oh, i am a ghost to her.
she doesn't know who i am and she never will
unless i can make her believe.
i've gotta make her believe in the darker side of me.
so i ask her...
take my hand and follow me on this journey to the underworld.
how i want her to want me.
her soaring voice carries into my mind.
i'm gonna take her away,
with me she will stay forever.
don't deny me, understand that i am a monster.
i am a monster.
won't you come with me now?
she doesn't know who i am,
for i am a ghost.
oh, i am a ghost to her.
she doesn't know who i am, and she never will
unless i can make her believe.
in me, in me, in me...
this face is deceitful when it smiles,
it doesn't show how desperate i am inside.
so come with me and we'll go,
believe in me and i'll show you who i am.
so you can see the man behind the monster that i am.
fighting my identity, i'll come take you away.
she doesn't know who i am,
for i am a ghost to her.
she doesn't know who i am and she never will.
no she never, never will believe. believe in me...

    General CommentSurprised no one's commented on this one yet. Great song, and it's pretty obvious that it's written from the phantom's point of view from "The Phantom Of The Opera." The lyrics "I come down from the catacombs in the opera house. I hide my face while I long for her lovely voice." definitely point towards that meaning. Love the breakdown where he starts screaming "I am a monster!" So sick. An awesome album all the way around as well.

    General CommentAh, aleibvox beat me to it.
    Yep, awsome song about "The Phantom of the Opera". I assume the title is, like so many other Chiodos titles, absolutely meaningless.
