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!

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!

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...
