  • 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 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 Writer/s: BRIAN HANER, JONATHAN SEWARD, MATTHEW SANDERS, ZACHARY BAKER
