    shortLet him who hath understandingreckon the
    number of the beastfor it is a human numberits
    number is six hundred and sixty six
  • I lived alone my mind was blankI needed time to
    think to get the memories from my mind
  • What did I see? Could I believe? That what I
    sawthat night was real and not just fantasy
  • Just what I saw in my old dreams were
    theyreflections of my warped mind staring back
    at me?

The number of the beast, 1982
  • '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 holding back'Cause I just had to see
    was someone watching me
  • In the mist dark figures move and twistwas all
    this for real or just some kind of hell
  • 6-6-6 the Number of the BeastHell 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

    has begun Satan's work is done

    their eyes
