I close my eyes
Started dreaming
See a vision filled with wings
Head my way

Feel the presence
Of unknown power
Telling me to come
This is the only way

It's a dream within a dream
Lost and lonely
But don't be fooled
By the Devil's hand, oh no!

Silent screamer filled with fear
As the night time
Shapes a face
Then disappears

Scared forever into believing
That your mind
Has met the
Prince of whom you see

It's a dream within a dream
Lost and lonely
But don't be fooled
By the Devil's hand, oh, no!

It's a dream within a dream
Lost forever
But don't be fooled
By the Devil, oh, no!

In your eyes
The evil spirit rises
Blinded by the dark
You fall into shame

As the reaper takes you
Down the spiral stairway
You share the evil pit
With Satan's name

Nightmare, it's got me runnin'
Nightmare, it's calling you
Nightmare, it's got me runnin'
Nightmare, it's calling you

It's a dream within a dream
Lost and lonely
But don't get fooled
By the Devil

It's a dream within a dream
Lost forever
Don't be fooled
By the Devil

It's got me running
It's just a nightmare
It's got me running
It's got me running
You'll wake up from your dreams
