Woe to you

Oh Earth and sea


For the Devil sends the Beast with wrath

Because he knows the time is short


Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the Beast

For it is a human number its number is six hundred and sixty six


I left alone my mind was blank


I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind


What did I see can I believe that what I saw

That night was real and not just fantasy


Just what I saw


In my old dreams


Were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me


'Cause in my dreams


It's always there


The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair




The night was black was no use holding back

'Cause I just had to see was someone watching me

In the mist dark figures move and twist

Was all this for real or some kind of hell

Six six six the number of the Beast

Hell and fire was spawned to be released


Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised


As they start to cry hands held to the sky


In the night the fires burning bright

The ritual has begun Satan's work is done

Six six six the number of the Beast

Sacrifice is going on tonight


This can't go on I must inform the law

Can this still be real or some crazy dream


But I feel drawn towards the chanting hordes

They seem to mesmerize me can't avoid their eyes

Six six six the number of the Beast

Six six six the one for you and me


I'm coming back I will return


And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn


I have the fire I have the force


I have the power to make my evil take it's course
