Nightmare – Avenged Sevenfold

Music and Lyric: M. Shadow, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ

NIGHTMARE!
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
Yeah
Oooooooh
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
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)


(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


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
Oooooooh
It’s your fucking nightmare

To Blog Or Not To Blog…

That was the question that had kept gnawing away at me for some time, until my last post.


This is not the only place I post my blog, so I wasn’t surprised I didn’t get any comments here… I never get comments here on Blogger. I wonder if anyone at all even reads my blog from Blogger. LOL
The comments I did get, elsewhere, totally blew me away.


Some said I was very courageous for what I wrote. I need to set the record straight on that point.
I wasn’t being courageous, in my mind. I had just reached the point where I knew I had to stop being the coward I had always been and finally speak up about who I really am. Truth is, I was scared to death! But I had to swallow that fear and, finally, move forward and just be me. Regardless of what anyone else thought.


Interestingly enough, I thought, at least, my family followed what I wrote on Blogger. I wonder now. I know for a fact that my cousin saw my post and we talked about it. I have to thank her for the talk. I worried the most over what she would think… and while I know she doesn’t necessarily agree with it all… she said she’d still love me no matter what. That meant more than I can even put into words
As for the rest of my family… I never heard a word. So, they either missed the post entirely, or… I don’t know what.


Anyway, someone told me that she thought the things I wrote could help a lot of people. And you know, I’d love to be able to do that. To help. Even if, ultimately, it’s only ever one person. If I can do that… everything I have been through and survived will be worth it.


So, I’ll keep blogging… and I may even do it a little more often.


Stay tuned!.
