What's it about: a dream demon caused by fears of the unknown

lyrics

It’s been a long night, in a bad dream
You picked the wrong girl

On the step behind the pew
Loaded ready its time shoot
Twisted sister pull the trigger
Broke my will shattered faith
There is an evil inside my brain
Hailing Mary screams my name
Pull the trigger ready aim
Pull the trigger ready aim

Chorus
Oooo boy I’ll hunt you down
Oooo boy I’ll chase you down
Oooo boy I’ll hunt you down
Oooo boy I’ll chase you down
Oooo boy I’ll hunt you down
Oooo boy I’ll chase you down
And make you mine

Hate, anger and disgust
Take him out he turns to dust
Can’t stand it any longer
Urge to kill is getting stronger
Go ahead load the gun go ahead loaded gun
It’s my turn to fight
It’s my turn tonight

Chorus

You’re not even expecting it
I can tell your wanting some
Perfect time for satan’s plan
No one can save you now
Wait no longer, take his breath
You can say, you killed a man
No more regrets
Just him leave to die

On the step behind the pew
Loaded ready its time shoot
Twisted sister pull the trigger
Broke my will shattered faith
Sweaty palms I slip away
There is an evil inside my brain
Hailing Mary screams my name
Pull the trigger ready aim

Chorus

Are you real or in my head
Images are not clear
Can’t believe that I’m not dead
It’s that time to take you down
Close your eyes
I’ll make it quick
No one can save you now
Maybe… strangely... same dream
