LyricsEdit

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 like 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

Oooo, It's your fucking Nightmare (Now 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 you slowly go insane they tell ya

"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, hahaha

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 (ah)

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

Oooooo, it's your fucking Nightmare
