I left alone my mind was blank
I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind
What did I see could 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 dream it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair

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 this all 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 were 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 just some crazy dream
But I feel drawn towards the chanting hordes
They seem to mesmerise... 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
