AVENGED SEVENFOLD


Nightmare Lyrics

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 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

It's your fucking nightmare
(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can't wake up and sweat
'Cause it ain't over yet
Still dancin' 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

It's your fucking 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
(Hit)
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
It's your fucking nightmare

this song is a message that there are prices to pay for the choices we make. although some more sinister than others, every choice will turn out for the better. no matter what. the rev will be missed
