Lyrics

Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair
Down we plunge to the prison of my mind
Down that path into darkness deep as hell!

Why, you ask, was I bound and chained
In this cold and dismal place?
Not for any mortal sin
But the wickedness of my abhorrent face!

Track down this murderer!
He must be found!
Hunt down this murderer
He must be found!

Hounded out by everyone!
Met with hatred everywhere!
No kind words from anyone!
No compassion anywhere!
Christine, why? Why?

Your hand at the level of your eyes
At the level of your eyes
Your hand at the level of your eyes (at the level of your eyes)

Have you gorged yourself, at last, in your lust for blood?
Am I now to be prey to your lust for flesh?

That fate which condemns me to wallow in blood
Has also denied me the joys of the flesh
This face, this infection which poisons our love

This face, which earns a mother's fear and loathing
A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing

Pity comes too late
Turn around and face your fate:
An eternity of this before your eyes!

This haunted face holds no horror for me now
It's in your soul that the true distortion lies

Wait! I think, my dear, we have a guest!

Sir...
This is indeed, an unparalleled delight
I had rather hoped, that you would come
And now, my wish comes true
You have truly made my night!

Free her!
Do what you like, only free her!
Have you no pity?

Your lover makes a passionate plea!

Please, Raoul, it's useless!

I love her!
Does that mean nothing?
I love her!
Show some compassion...

The world showed no compassion to me!

Christine, Christine
Let me see her!

Be my guest, sir...

Monsieur, I bid you welcome
Did you think that I would harm her?
Why should I make her pay, for the sins which are yours?

Order your fine horses now!
Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes!
Nothing can save you now,
Except, perhaps, Christine...

Start a new life with me
Buy his freedom with your love!
Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death!
This is the choice
This is the point of no return!

The tears I might have shed for your dark fate
Grow cold and turn to tears of hate!

Christine, forgive me, please forgive me
I did it all for you, and all for nothing- (Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend)
Too late for turning back (We had such hopes, and now those hopes are shattered!)
Too late for prayers and useless pity

Say you love him (Past all hope of cries for help)
And my life is over- (No point in fighting)

For either way you choose you cannot win (Either way you choose he has to win!)

So do you end your days with me
Or do you send him to his grave?

Why make her lie to you to save me?

Angel of Music- (Past the point of no return)

Who deserves this? (For pity's sake, Christine, say no!)

The final threshold- (Don't throw your life away for my sake!)

His life is now the prize (Why do you curse mercy?)
Which you must earn!

I fought so hard to free you

Angel of Music- (You've passed the point of no return!)
You deceived me!

I gave my mind, blindly!

You try my patience
Make your choice!
