(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!
