Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare lyrics

Now your nightmare comes to life.

Dragged you down below
Down to the devils 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
It's your fucking 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
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate
Is looking so clear
It's your fucking nightmare


(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

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
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate
Is looking so clear
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.

    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.

    The story of a man ending up in hell for all the horrible sins he's committed. He has no respect what so ever for fellow people and probably there lives. Ending up here is what he deserves as he was warned from a child. God is not on his side anymore because he stayed drenched in sin. God cannot be around sin. That's why he sent his son jesus christ.

    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.
