Once upon a nightmare
Once upon a time
You're running from temptation
You got lost and found that you don't

Belong to anybody
You're all the same
Just another number
Cross it out whenever you don't behave

Someone get the doctor
He knows what to do
Throw some bones and mumble
The devil's inside of you

It might be contagious
It might change the plan
Get back in your tiny boxes
Even if you can't, we say you can

Join the congregation
Everybody's got to get in line
We never justify
The choir sings a never-ending lie

When you thought
You were free
You didn't need a reason
No reason to survive

As the big door closes
And you're waiting for the nail
Somebody tell the world
You're buried alive

Once upon a nightmare
Once upon a time
Running from tomorrow
You got lost and found that another

Day has turned to ashes
Been taken by the wind
Frozen seeds of sorrow
Never to begin

Join the celebration
And everybody's got to get in line and
We never justify
The choir sings a never-ending lie

When you thought
You were free
You did not need a reason
No reason to survive

As the big door closes
And you waiting for the mail
Somebody tell the world
You're buried alive

One more nightmare
Just one more time
Join the congregation
Everybody get in line

Celebration, the choir sings a lie
As you call, the hammer falls
No one hears you cry
I'm buried alive
