Nightmare!

(Now your nightmare comes to life)

Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil's show
To be his guest forever
Peace of mind is less than never
Hate to twist your mind
But God ain't on your side
An old acquaintance severed
Burn the world your last endeavor

Flesh is burning, you can smell it in the air
'Cause men like you have such an easy soul to steal (steal)
So stand in line while they ink numbers in your head
You're now a slave until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness turning
Haunting, yearning, pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
Oh, it's your fucking nightmare
(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can't wake up and sweat
'Cause it ain't over yet
Still dancing with your demons
Victim of your own creation
Beyond the will to fight
Where all that's wrong is right
Where hate don't need a reason
Loathing self-assassination

You've been lied to just to rape you of your site
And now they have the nerve to tell you how to feel (feel)
So sedated as they medicate your brain
And while ya slowly go insane they tell you
"Given with the best intentions
Help you with your complications"

You should have known the price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call, everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Oh, it's your fucking nightmare, ha ha ha ha!

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Fight! (fight) not to fail! (fail) not to fall! (fall)
Or you'll end up like the others
Die! (die) die again! (die) drenched in sin! (sin)
With no respect for another
Oh!

Down! (down) feel the fire! (fire) feel the hate! (hate)
Your pain is what we desire
Lost! (lost) hit the wall! (wall) watch you crawl! (crawl)
Such a replaceable liar

And I know you hear their voices
(Calling from above)
And I know they may seem real
(These signals of love)
But our life's made up of choices
(Some without appeal)

They took for granted your soul
And it's ours now to steal
As your nightmare comes to life

You should have known the price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call, everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Oh, it's your fucking nightmare!

And I know you hear their voices
(Calling from above)
And I know they may seem real
(These signals of love)
But our life's made up of choices
(Some without appeal)

You should have known the price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call, everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Oh, it's your fucking nightmare!without appeal)
