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 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 a 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 fuckin' nightmare
Fight Not to fail Not to fall Or you'll end up like the others
Die Die again Drenched in sin With no respect for another
Down Feel the fire (fire) Feel the hate Your pain is what we desire
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
