Comparing info from imdb , wikipedia and various sources

    They are very similar sounding in the opening stanza but otherwise not at all. It's a strange coincedence.

    You are my hiding place is a song for God and Phantom is a dark, mysterious and powerful song :) Weird how those 2 things can sound alike.
