"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 starin' back at me?
'Cause in my dreams, it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair

Yeah!

Night was black, was no use holdin' 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 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 phrased
As they start to cry, hands held to the sky
In the night, the fires are 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 chanting hordes
Seem to mesmerize, 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 its course
