"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
