"Passion and the Opera" as written by and Jukka Antero Nevalainen Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen....
Princess of lust
Dignity put to dust
A virginal sight
Their apple to bite

Drink from my thighs
The rain of lies
A sight so cursed
Breasts which never nursed

An Aphrodite for mortal souls
Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles
Their erotic hour my tearless weep
Their satisfaction my infinite sleep

Naked limbs reflecting from the moon
I'll be there for you soon
First wish for this night:
Let me be your delight

Body of a virgin
Soul to the Devil's kin
Your God is me
In all that you see

An Aphrodite for mortal souls
Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles
Their erotic hour my tearless weep
Their satisfaction my infinite sleep

    My Interpretationwell, obviously this song is about sex...
    "An Aphrodite for mortal souls...Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles"
    aphrodite: love goddess... mortal souls: people
    ..the godess is chasing her (mortal soul) wherever she goes, she is seeking 4 her, to always torture her with passionate erotic and painful love...
    "Their erotic hour, my tearless weep...their satisfaction my infinite sleep"
    i guess it s about jealousy...
    we can see that Tarja separates THEIR and ME (my)
    their erotic hour, they must be happy together, while she is thinking about this and crying without tears, cause she lost all her tears, there isn't tears anymore in her eyes,,
    and their satisfaction my infinite sleep.
    infinite sleep means DEATH... while they are satisfing each other, she is dying because the guy is not with her,,,

    General CommentI must say this song seems horribly addictive... I was reading through the lyrics in my CD case and saw this song and thought "What the heck!?" I put it on out of curiousity and found the opening to the song extremely addictive to listen to and the flow of the lyrics seems very unusual to me... I absolutely love the sound of the chorus as well.

    This is a really odd sounding song, but I do enjoy it... The tune just captivates me... maybe I'm easily pleased... :p

    General CommentI love the guitars at the beginning. It SCREAMS battle theme. XD

    Of course, how can one thing it ISN'T about sex? >_> XD;; But when I'm writing, I like to put this song on when there's a battle scene. >D This one and Gethsemane. ;D
