Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare Lyrics

Last updated: 08/27/2013 07:21:30 AM

(Now your nightmare comes to life)

Dragged ya 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, yeah
Oooooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare!
(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can't wake up in 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 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 the 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.
Oooooh, it's your fuckin' 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 (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 from 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
Oooooh, it's your fucking nightmare!

READ THIS MOTHERFUCKERS | Reviewer: The Rev | 8/26/13

this song is about cocaine, me and Jimmy know this, and you will never know because you are all inferior.. Jimmy never used it like me.. and then he decided to use it to show to all people that he has a great soul that cannot be stealed easily, that he would not use it again, because he (like me) already have supposed this fact from long time..

my opinion | Reviewer: I Shouldn't Tell | 12/10/12

I think this song is to welcome their new drummer (you can see it at the last on the music video of Nightmare), it's like when you join avenged sevenfold, that means you inside a nightmare with avenged sevenfolds, but for real it's not a nightmare, It's just a place thats need a new drummer to make it become a non-nightmared place anymore

well, sorry about my english if it was too bad

Obvious meaning is obvious | Reviewer: Joe N*gga | 4/7/12

People need to do some research....the message is written in plain sight. It is seen throughout music all across the spectrum in todays times...A7X is not the only band conveying this message. Wake the f*ck up!

Nightmare!!!! | Reviewer: Matthew | 4/5/12

First of all, this is an amazing song. I'm giving a presentation on Dante's Inferno, and I had to include this song - it's just so scary! ...not to mention what it's about.

Which is obviously about someone going to Hell.

Jimmy's favorite movie.. | Reviewer: RevBlacklist | 9/22/11

Is what I think this is inspired by. It was written long before Rev died and it was one of his favorite songs, so I think it may be inspired by Jacobs Ladder, which is also the movie they based the music video off of...

It's wow | Reviewer: Djunior | 11/12/10

I love the song,the album and anything about a7x....
This song make me think that i still have a hope to do somethin'....
R.I.P. Jimmy "the rev" Sullivan,you always my BEST DRUMMER EVER....

Best song | Reviewer: Suraj | 10/27/10

Wow this is my one of the favourite song no this album,M.Shadows vocals are at the best i think this is the best song to date he has sung and syns solo is mindblowing its like syns Guitar is crying... A7X forever... RIP "JIMMY"

Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/20/10

Just in my opinion i feel the song is speaking of when we do something awful (anyone who has ever cheated and felt guilt) and feel true guilt for our actions. Sometimes prompting one to resort to feelings of suicide at worst. But on top of that you still feel trapped inside the feeling of guilt and people are trying to help, in the song refering to medication. But you relize there is nothing you can to make the guilt feeling go away. This is ones nightmare in which you feel you can never awake,and you know that it really was all your choice and how easy it was to give in (we are only human). But the part after the solo seems to say that if you feel so bad fight tooth and nail not to let it happen and pull yourself out of the nightmare. This is just what i feel the song is about if you disagree that's fine but don't go off to make a big deal of it.

It's like a nightmare... | Reviewer: Azcatraz | 9/12/10

I think this song is about someone who thinks that their life is completely terrible and that there's no hope, but then someone else is trying to convince them that it's not as bad as it seems. Not too sure really, but I love the song, video, album, and everything about A7X.
