Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare lyrics

[Intro]
Nightmare!
Now your nightmare comes to life
.

[Verse 1]
Dragged you 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
!

[Pre-Chorus]
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
.

[Chorus]
You should have known,
The price of evil
!
And it hurts to know that you belong here,
Yeah,
Oooooooh,
It's your fucking nightmare!
While your nightmare comes to life
.

[Verse 2]
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
!

[Pre-Chorus]
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 you,
"Given with the best intentions, help you with your complications"
!

[Chorus]
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,
Oooooooh,
It's your fucking nightmare!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

(Break)

[Hook]
(Maniacal laughter)
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!
Oh
!

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
.

[Bridge]
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
!

[Chorus]
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,
Oooooooh,
It's your fucking nightmare!

    Love this song I hate that the rev died(god rest his soul we miss you Jimmy) and I love the drums at the of the music video because it reminds us what is going to happen to us one day and it takes the death of a beloved figure to show us that and I still can't listen to Fiction without tearing up. We love and miss you rev. My heart goes out to the other band members of A7x I'm sorry for your loss.

    You were made for a Godly purpose. You. Satan wants to deceive you and take that away from you. Satan will use anything and anyone to separate you from the love of God. Do not listen to evil things, do not watch evil things and do not speak evil things. Think of things that are good, say things that are good and see things that are good. Don't be deceived, seek God and you will find Him - He does love you.

    Hey your right bout critical acclaim but nightmare has nothin to do bout Jimmy the video is a tribute to him but the has nothin to do wit him cause M. Shadows nd Jimmy wrote the whole album before he died nd Jimmy was able to record this song or atleast a demo of it before he died if you guys ever went to the band website you would know that.

    This is serious boys and girls, get your heart right with god and accept jesus as your personal savior, google serenity prayer and study that for a few minutes to insure your soul is safe for ever and you will never have to worry about your own final nightmare, save your soul for ever just researching a little bit on google on how to be saved and you'll be just fine.

    I think based off of their drummers death, and the fact that the rev was also writing this song when he died has a big part in the meaning to the song. In my opinion, the song is about drug users and the rev. The whole song is written like it's being sang to someone. "hate to twist your mind but god aint on your side" he's suggesting that drugs are the devil's tools and once you use, god can no longer help you. "you should have know, the price of evil. And it hurts to know that you belong here" to me seems like he's speaking directly to rev about going to hell for drug use. And finally, at the end of their music video they show the revs drums set up in a room.
