"The man who takes offense when offence is not intended is a fool
However the man who takes offence when it is intended is an even greater fool"
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some say revenge is a dish best served cold

Yet I know revenge is fueled by a hellish anger

I am scarred by that fire

Some say death come as a thief in the night

But I see that death is born with us

It's just more visible in me

I am the one who was born a face half ancient
It forced me into the darkness to become a demon, free from law, judge, and jury

The only thing that could return my humanity was music and choir

Through the years I saw darkness is kinder than light
Although I was lonely, melody and darkness were my friends and they could be trusted

Only in music could my emotions be free

I call myself the Phantom

Almost never seen, ever heard

The white mask brings the bitter taste of blood
