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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare

(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can't wake up in 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 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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare

[M. Shadows laughing]

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
Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare

    Nice guys

  15. kloudkreeper

    Huge thumbs up for this song. Great big thumbs down for the decision to leave the new drummer out of the vid. Yes the Rev is gone, he was actually what attracted me to this band. But drums always were and always will be a huge factor in this bands music. Disappointing none was included in this video. Btw... I'm 57 and love this band.

    DiverseDad

    I'm with ya but if I remember right, they called in favors to several different drummers to help finish this album(around 60% of this album was written by the Rev) and didn't have an actual replacement for the band yet at this time. Plus if you watched to the end, the whole concept of this video is the "nightmare" of loosing Rev and it all builds up to the final shot of the video of the empty kit.

  50. Derpette Derm

    Making this album without the rev must have been a nightmare for the other band members. He composed the best songs of the album, but was unable to perform them due to his own personal struggles.

    เพลงนี้ เขาแต่งให้แฟนเพลงอย่างพวกเรา รึปล่าว เพราะ ในช่วงที่เพลงนี้ออกมา ซิลลี่ฟูล ก็เริ่มแผ่วลง (เห็นเขาว่ามาเพราะมีวงเกิดขึ้นมากมาย ) เขาเลยแต่งเพลงนี้เพื่อให้แฟน แบบว่า ท่อนนี้ร้องว่า "บอกมารับคำท้าไม่ว่าหหน้าไหน เดินต่อไปด้วยหัวใจ เดินต่อไปถ้าหากเธอยืนอยู่ข้างฉัน " (ให้แฟนๆของเราบอกพี่เขาว่า สู้ๆ หรือ ผิดพลาดอะไร แนวนี้ป่ะ พอบอก เขา แล้ว พี่เขาก็จะรับคำท้าหรือคำติชม แล้วก็ไม่กลัว วงดนตรีหน้าไหน แล้วก็จะทำงานต่อไปด้วยใจ เดินต่อไปถ้าหากแฟนเพลง อย่างพวกเรายืนอยู่ข้างพวกพี่เขา) ผมคิดเอาเองน่ะ 5555555555555

    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

    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

    You should have known
    The price of evil
    And it hurts to know
    That you belong here, yeah
    No one to call
