"The Family Ghost" as written by and Kim Bendix Petersen....
The darkness came closer to home on the
Following night
And Miriam slept like a rock when
Jonathan's face went white

The bedroom was ice cold
But the fire was burning still
The blinding light
The family ghost had risen again...the ghost

Don't be scared, don't be scared now my friend
I am count de lafey
Let me take you to the crypt down below
Where Abigail rests

Let Miriam sleep
She never would understand
Now come let us go... it's time to know

Beware of the slippery stairs
You could easily fall and break your neck
Hand me that torch and I will lead the way
To the secret in the dark

Take a look into the vault, the vault
The sarcophagus...of a child
Abigail has been in here for years and years
Stillborn, born... born... born

The spirit of Abigail is inside your wife
And there's only one way you can stop
The rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life now

    General CommentPretty self-explanitory, the second night that Jonathan and Miriam are in the mansion, Count de la Fey (or The Family Ghost), appears and leads Jonathan into the crypts below the house to show the grave of Abigail to him. He then tells Jonathan that the spirit of Abigail is living in Miriam and the only way to stop it is to kill her.

    On a side note, the video to this song is one of the cheesiest clips I've ever seen.... It rules!
