1. Nightmare (6:14)
(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 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
Oh, it's your fuckin' nightmare!
(While 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 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 the 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, ha-ha-ha-ha!

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.

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...
Oh, it's your fuckin' nightmare!
2. Welcome to the Family (4:06)
Hey kid, do I have your attention?
I know the way you've been living
(Life's so wreckless, tragedy, endless)
Welcome to the family
Hey, theres something missing
Only time will alter your vision
Never in question, lethal injection
Welcome to the family

Not long ago you'd find the answers we're so crystal clear
Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear
Can you look at yourself now?Can you look at yourself?
You can't win this fight!

And in a way it seems there's no-one to call
when our thoughts are so numb
And our feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight!

Hey, I have a question
What's with the violent aggression?
Details blurry, lost him too early
Welcome to the family
Hey, why won't you listen?
Can't help the people you're missing
It's been done, a casualty re-run
Welcome to the family

I try and help you with the things that can't be justified
I need to warn you
There is no way to rationalize
So have you figured it out now?
So have you figured out?
You can't win this fight!

And in a way it seems there's no-one to call
when our thoughts are so numb
And our feellings aren't sure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight!

Gunning for you
And all mankind
I've lost my mind
Psychotic
Rabid dementia
I won't be fine

I see
You’re a king who’s been dethroned
Cast out
In a world you’ve never known
Stand down
Place your weapons by your side
It’s our war
in the end we’ll surely lose
But that's alright

So have you figured out now?
So have you figured out?

And, in a way it seems there's no-one to call
when our thoughts are so numb
And our feelings unsure
We all have emptiness inside
We all have answers to find
But you can't win this fight!

Deep inside
Where nothings fine
I've lost my mind
You're not invited
So step aside
I've lost my
Deep inside
Where nothings fine
I've lost my mind
You're not invited
So step aside
I've lost my
3. Danger Line (5:28)
My sixteen, locked loaded
All fear has been avoided
You say the words and my weapon is drawn
This one could be my last time
Some people call it war crime
I may be staring at a lethal sight... to die

Nothing shocks you like a bullet hole
(Leaving my fear on the danger line)
Suffering a man should never know
(Leaving my faith on the danger line)

I do this for my family
My daughter lover her daddy
Too many talk down on things they don't know
With colors never faded
Wreckless and unabated
They may take me but never take us all

Nothing shocks you like a bullet hole
(Leaving my fear on the danger line)
Suffering a man should never know
(Leaving my faith on the danger line)

I know what you're thinking
I've been there before
So think of the time, the time we spent laughing away
So think of the times at home (life without a care)

Now I find myself in my own blood
The damage done is far beyond repair
I never put my faith in up above
But now, I'm hoping someone's there

I never meant to leave this world alone
I never meant to hurt the ones who cared
And all this time I thought we'd just grow old
You know, no-one said it's fair

Tell my baby girl that"It's alright"
I've sung my last song today
Remind the lord to leave his light on for me
I'm free
4. Buried Alive (6:44)
Take the time just to listen
When the voices screaming are much too loud
Take a look in the distance
Try and see it all
Chances are that you might find
That we share a common discomfort now
I feel I'm walking a fine line
Tell me only if it's real

Still I'm on my way
(On and on it goes)
Vacant hope to take

Hey I can't live in here for another day
Darkness has kept the light concealed
Grim as ever
Hold on to faith as I dig another grave
Meanwhile the mice endure the wheel
Real as ever
And it seems I've been buried alive

I walked the fields through the fire
Taking steps until I found solid ground
Followed dreams reaching higher
Couldn't survive the fall
Much has changed since the last time
And I feel a little less certain now
You know i jumped at the first sign
Tell me only if its real

Memories seems to fade
(On and on it goes)
Wash my view away

Hey I can't live in here for another day
Darkness has kept the light concealed
Grim as ever
Hold on to faith as I dig another grave
Meanwhile the mice endure the wheel
Real as ever
And I'm chained like a slave
Trapped in the dark
Slammed all the locks
Death calls my name and its seems I've been buried alive

Take you down now
Burn it all out
Throw you all around
Get your fucking
HANDS OFF ME
Whats it feel like?
Took the wrong route
Watch it fall apart
Now your knockin'
AT THE WRONG GATE
For you to pay the toll
A price for you alone
The only deal you'll find
I'll gladly take your soul
While it seems sick
Sober up quick
Psycho lunatic
Crushing you with
HANDS OF FAITH
Shame to find out
When it's too late
But you're all the same
Trapped inside
INFERNO AWAITS
Evil thoughts can hide
I'll help release the mind
I'll peel away the skin
Release the dark within

This is now your life
Strike you from the light
This is now your life
Die buried alive

This is now your life
(Whats it feel like?)
Strike you from the light
This is now your life
(Whats it feel like?)
Die buried alive
(I'll gladly take your soul)

This is now your life
Die buried alive
5. Natural Born Killer (6:15)
Natural Born Killer
One snap for the dieing
One click to end the day
Another story with a mangled scene
It couldn't happen any other way
You wanna talk about it?
I'm begging you to walk in my shoes any time
Watch the clock 'til you unwind
You wanna cry about it?
It's making me consider that I lost my mind
The way I see, you must be blind
So this is the world you left behind
This is the guilt that consumes you
So die alone
This is the one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you
Can't bribe me with money
Can't shower me with shame
Another killer from a broken home
Until you covered me with manic fame
You wanna know about it?
Well I'm gonna be fucking with you every time
Story broken, you're behind
And when you ask about it?
You can rest assured I'll give you my best side
Seem we all have friends to find
So this is the hate I've been born to
Full are the tales of the untrue
So die alone
This is the one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you
And I'm waiting
Waiting for the days to slowly pass me by
(and all the promises I'll find)
No hesitating, you've pulled the trigger now your story's left behind
(I know you want to see me cry)
Lock my soul you won't survive

So die alone
This is the one thing that I won't do
So say your prayers
'Cause I ain't leaving here without you
To die unknown
Would crush the fish lens we all see through
To kill the glare
Expose the ugliness we hold true
6. So Far Away (5:27)
Never feared for anything
Never shamed but never free
A light that healed a broken heart with all that it could

Lived a life so endlessly
Saw beyond what others see
I tried to heal your broken heart with all that I could

Will you stay?
Will you stay away forever?

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Plans of what our futures hold
Foolish lies of growing old
It seems we're so invincible
The truth is so cold

A final song, a last request
A perfect chapter laid to rest
Now and then I try to find a place in my mind

Where you can stay
You can stay awake forever

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Sleep tight, I'm not afraid
The ones that we love are here with me
Lay away a place for me
Cause as soon as I'm done I'll be on my way
To live eternally

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book its burned
Place and time always on my mind
And the light you left remains but it's so hard to stay
When I have so much to say and you're so far away

I love you
You were ready
The pain is strong and urges rise
But I'll see you
When it lets me
Your pain is gone, your hands untied

So far away
And I need you to know

So far away
And I need you to
Need you to know
7. God Hates Us (5:19)
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
You wanna hear my side?
You need drown to know..
With all the times it hurt me to fuck you
I built a wall, with your blood to show!
GOD SAVE US!
GOD SAVE US ALL!
GOD HATES US!
GOD HATES US ALL!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
Nothing to heal, no one to break
Pills had a role, now there's nothing to take
Nothing to trust, no one to fake!
You'll find out sooner that it's best if we just know our place
My infiltrating mind, my lacerated soul
It took me years, create me, control you
I left myself for an idea I stole
GOD SAVE US!
GOD SAVE US ALL!
GOD HATES US!
GOD HATES US ALL!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
Liar, Rape, Kill
Love, Hate, Fear
You better take your time
You better take it slow
'Cause when you seek the one
There's nothing left to show
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
TOTAL NIGHTMARE!
8. Victim (7:30)
House full of roses
A letter on the stairs
A tape full of messages
for anyone who cares
Collage of broken words
and stories full of tears
Remembering your life
'cause we wish that you were here
Nothing is harder
than to wake up all alone
Realize it's not okay
it's the end of all you've known
Time keeps passing by
but it seems I'm frozen still
Scars are left behind
but some too deep to feel
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all's gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain, inside
We're all just victims of a crime
Some days you'll find me
in a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself
'bout the things I'll never know
What's left to find
'cause I need a little more
I need a little time
can we even up the score?
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all's gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain, inside
We're all just victims of a crime
And nothing lasts forever
For all good things it's true
I'd rather trade it all
While somehow saving you
And it must have been the season
That threw us out of line
Once i stood so tall
Now I'm searching for a sign
So don't need your salvation
With promises unkind
And all the speculation
Save it for another time
'Cause we don't need a reason
A reason just to stay
Some just can't be bothered
To stick around another day
And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
We've all been victims of a crime
When all is gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside (oh)
We've all been victims of a crime
Victims of a crime
Living with this crime
I'm missing you (x4)
9. Tonight the World Dies (4:41)
Lost the meaning of our stay
Learn to live another day
Doubt the choices that we've made
I know that we can't hide our shame
It's only in disguise

Drowning in our own debris
Fool of thought as through we're free
Close our own eyes so we can see
The depth of all we need to be
If only in my eyes

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
In a way

So try to wonder why you can
And take the time to understand
As long as I can touch your face
You know I'll never leave this place
If only in my mind

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
But I seem to find out better ways
To consciously pretend

Silence, all I want to say
With tendencies to run away
I'll run away
With you tonight
Launder all my sins away
And just like that mistakes are made
You know
Tonight the world die-

I don't mind
(Read the writing on the wall)
Mother cries
(Tortured voices as we crawl)
Find me on my better days
To lose it once again
But I seem to find out better ways
To consciously pretend
10. Fiction (5:13)
Now I think I understand
How this world can overcome a man
Like a friend we saw it through
In the end I gave my life for you

Gave you all I had to give
Found a place for me to rest my head
While I may be hard to find
Heard there's peace just on the other side

Not that I could
Not that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin
Let it burn

Left this life to set me free
Took a piece of you inside of me
All this hurt can finally fade
Promise me you'll never feel afraid

Not that I could
Not that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin
Let it burn

I hope it's worth it, here on the highway, yeah
I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you

So tell everybody, the ones who walks beside me, yeah
I hope you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight

I hope it's worth it, what's left behind me, yeah
I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight

So tell everybody, the ones who walks beside me, yeah
I hope you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight
11. Save Me (10:56)
(They all know! They all know!)

Sorry, did I wake your dreams?
Some questions run to deep
We only, only wake up when we sleep
Led by the lunar light, trouble's all we'd find
Lost our way tonight

Is it something we said?
Is it something we said to them?
Is it something we said?

[Chorus:]
(Save me)
Trapped in a vile world
(Save me)
Where the end game's all the same as every other
We're only here to die
(Save me)
Losing my only dream
(Save me)
I can use some guiding light, some place to go
If you hear me, let me know

(They all know! They all know!)

Ever since the day you left my fate's been set unknown
How many years to walk this path alone?
So much to see tonight, so why do you close your eyes?
Why can't I shut mine?

Is it something we did?
Is it something we did to them?
Is it something we did?

[Chorus]

If you hear me, let me know

Help me find my way
I said, help me find my way,
No pulse inside of me, stone cold lips and heresy
All lies and to a degree, losing who I wanna be

Find out, right now

He may be out of his mind
But some day you will find,
That sanity has left us all blind
And dragged us all behind,
A moment seen through those eyes
Crystal blue disguise,
They say that all beauty must die
I say it just moves on

If you'd only open your mind, then some day you will find
Insanity left us behind and walked right through the door
I can see the pictures clear as yesterday, pictures of my own
I can hear the voices begging you to stay, but know you're not alone.

[Chorus]

If you hear me, let me know

Tonight we all die young [6x]
Tonight we all die
Tonight we all die young!
