歌詞

"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."

Revelations ch. xiii v. 18

I left alone my mind was blank

I needed time 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

Cos 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

Cos I just had to see was someone watching me

In the mist dark figures move and twist

Was this all for real or just some kind of hell

666 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

666 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 just some crazy dream

But I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes

They seem to mesmerise me...can't avoid their eyes

666 the number of the beast

666 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
