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
And 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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare 

(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can't wake up in 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 sight 
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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare 

 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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare
