Y: I feel you, from beyond the walls you speak to me
M: Christine my love Paris now will worship you
You will star soon I'll kill to make it sure for you
Y: Oh my love, won't you please show yourself to me
M: Soon I'll take you in my kingdom you're the queen.
It's dark and peaceful but my face you'll never see, no

M: Oh Christine on this eve I will come for you
Y: Erik my love, I've waited all my life for you
Please just take me I need to be with you
M: Take my hand, through the catacombs my lair awaits
Y: Caverns, mazes, the underworld and the blackest lake.
Enticing danger, your passion feeds me I'm your slave

Y: Now I've bathed in fear. I will not leave here
M: Breathe deep the darkness. Breathe deep the madness
Y: I'm so cold inside. Mental suicide
M: Breathe deep the darkness. Breathe deep the sadness

M: Oh Christine don't you know it's all for you
Carlotta's head and the other death's I planned.
All for you, to have your night in the spotlight.
From now on forevermore you will only sing for me

Y: So you are, you are the legend. The Phantom Opera Ghost
M: I am what man has made me. With his hate and cruel ways
Y: Why are you?
M: Why am I?
Y&M: The Phantom Opera Ghost
Y: I have to see
M: You'll never see
Y&M: What's behind the mask

Y: I'm so torn between love, death, life, and hate
M: Don't you doubt me, what we have is just our fate.
I now own you from this day forth; you'll be my slave
Y: Oh Dear God for this life I've lost the will
M: No this can't be I'd rather you die than spoil my dream.
Myself I'll kill if I can't have you no one will

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs off of the "Horror Show" album! Iced Earth rocks. If my band ever gets big, I hope we can get the oppurtunity to open up for them.

    General CommentSounds like Jon borrowed the intro from Children of the Grave by Black Sabbath for the Phantom Opera Ghost. Or maybe it's just my imagination.

    Really love this part. when Y starts the verse while M is still singing.And then the part where they sing together...just amazing
