I dropped off in the shadows
the lead of a tragedy
I open my eyes — blind by the spotlight
and what do I see?
Pushed by ambition, you've been granted admission
to the hall of acclaim,
She denied your affection,
now listen the whole world is screaming your name
I will forget her but I won't forgive
the curtain has fallen, behold the messiah
Riding high, the devil on the crest
for all the world to see forevermore
I am I — devil in the belfry, I'll be glorified forevermore
Is it a sin to learn to be able to live without love?
And is it a sin to put love under will and control from above?
Devil in my fingers — pleasure at my feet
Mind out of sight
The shadow I'll cast shall darken her world
and ghost her at night
With each song you'll die a little for me
It won't leave the scar, 'cause I've drown the curtain
Into the opera like moths to the flame
Spellbind their senses to follow the hero
