I'm hypnotised
And helpless
Beneath the pale
Full moon
My body is your sacrifice
You spirit's coming soon

I stare up at a
Squalid night

It's been so cold
And smooth
Turns tender kisses
Into bites
As you begin to move

You look so weak
And fragile
You seem to drip
And sway
But you swept me up into
Your arms
And carried me away

I'm living bad dreams
I can't run from you
I'm living bad dreams
This nightmare's
Coming true

You led me to temptation
Delivered me to pain
I walked upon you
Hallowed ground
My soul is yours to gain

Your passion drains
My energy
Fear starts running deep
I'm falling in
Slow motion
Into eternal sleep

I'm living bad dreams
I can't run from you
I'm living bad dreams
This nightmare's
Coming true

[Lead Break]

Your passion drains
My energy
Fear starts running deep
I'm falling in
Slow motion
Into eternal sleep
I'm living bad dreams

I can't run from you
I'm living bad dreams
This nightmare's
Coming true

I'm living bad dreams
I can't run from you
I'm living bad dreams
This nightmare's
Coming true

I'm living bad dreams
Ohh ohh
I don't want bad dreams
Living bad dreams

    "falling into slow motion into internal sleep" Means taking someone to another reality like in the nightmare on elm street. "I'm living bad dreams I cant run from you, this nightmare coming true." Means you don't want to run from it, it's a happy place not a evil place like Freddy. The second part of the quote means your desire is coming true. He is basically using a scenario from the nightmare on elm street because its using the same concept, closing your eyes and opening them finding your self some where unknown well without the nightmare. Your basically saying here am I wake because it seems like it. That's basically what the whole song means.
