Track Name: Nightmare
Oh, we're all stuck in a nightmare
Time to break on out
Come on!

Boom! Walk on as my past falls down
I've got my hands on the future now
Still got my pride, like a spark deep inside
Waiting to ignite the latent fires and desires
It's a nightmare
And the rest fall down
I've got to fight for my future now
The road ahead may be streaked with blood red
But fear is not a matter, Voodoo soldier keep your honour

In the nightmare
Oh yeah you're trapped in there
But don't stay locked up, hiding away in fear
Nightmare
Oh just reach out your hand and I can pull you out of there

I've been chained, locked into a soulless cage
My spirit races to freedom now
Those wasting brains, never loosed from their reigns
Still grovelling to achieve their next promotion
Through the motions of the nightmare
The machine pounds on
It prints its lies on the workers now
But I'm not that man, torn apart by your plan
Grinding wheels are falling, it's the ending of my calling

To the nightmare
My friend you're trapped in there
Don't stay locked up, hiding away in fear
Nightmare
I can take you out of there
Nightmare
You're trapped in there
Don't stay locked up, hiding away in fear
Nightmare
Oh yeah!

[instrumental break / guitar solo]

It's a nightmare
Oh you're trapped in there
I won't stay locked up, hiding away in fear
Nightmare
I'm the only one with the common sense to get out of there
Nightmare
You're trapped in there,
You can't stay locked up, hiding away in fear
Nightmare
Oh yeah!

[guitar solo]

Come on!
Now burn the nightmare down!
Yeah!
Come on out of the nightmare!
Come on out of the nightmare!
Fight your way out of the nightmare!
Track Name: Mirror Mirror
Mirror mirror speak to me of dark things
Bitter tidings brought to us in fevered dreams
Hear now my command
This that I demand
Spirit on the wall anoint your new king

There is fire rising deep within me
Evil voodoo magic running through me
Stand now by my side
Be my shadow bride
Enter into darkness, into eternal being

And I shall rise up and head an army of thousands
Marching across the plains of doom
To wreath the Earth in smoke and flame
Wrah!
Track Name: Revolution
The lies that move our motions
Enshrined in holy ghosts
Have led us to profound contempt
For the things we need the most
And you who stand before me
Great agents to our cause
You must show me what your souls are worth
Reclaim the soul of Mother Earth

When the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Unveil your enemy
Their downfall makes you free
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Unveil your enemy
Their downfall makes you free

And in the dark skies above us tower their values
Enthroned on billboards high
And with serpent tongues they hiss and sneer
Make sweet the taste of lies
And the bitter hand round your heart
Gently closes, seals your doom
But this warrior has awakened
And his strength will lift you from your tomb

When the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Join the fight with me
Join the war with me
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Join the fight with me
Win this war with me
Win this war with me!

[instrumental break]

Never in my life have I been so strong!
Never in my life have I been so strong!
And for all those years, and every life silenced by power, I'll say it again,
Never in my life have I been so strong!

And the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Win the war with me,
Strong is my prophecy
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Win the war with me!
Strong is my prophecy!
Win the war with me!
Strong is my prophecy!

And the war begins...
