Set It Off — Nightmare lyrics

[Verse 1]
They're coming creeping from the corner,
And all I know is that I don't feel safe.
I feel the tapping on my shoulder,
I turn around in an alarming state.
But am I losing my mind?
I really think so.
Not a creature in sight,
But, what you don't know,

[Pre-Chorus]
Is that my breathing gets faster,
And so does my heartbeat,
I wish this was over,
I wish that this was a dream but...

[Chorus]
I created a monster, a hell within my head,
Nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
Oh I'm so scared.
I created a monster, a beast inside my brain,
I've nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
My mind impaired,
Awake me from my nightmare.

[Verse 2]
Wait, something doesn't feel right (feel right),
No, something seems wrong (wrong).
And I've been feeling this way (oh that's too bad), for far too long.
As my vision gets blurred, my skin's getting colder,
Appearing young, while I'm growing older.
I collapse to the floor and scream:
"Can anybody save me from myself?!"

[Chorus]
I created a monster, a hell within my head,
Nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
Oh I'm so scared (oh I'm so scared).
I created a monster, a beast inside my brain,
I've nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
My mind impaired,
Awake me from my nightmare.

[Hook]
Walking to the ledge,
I find myself looking down.
Frozen still with fear,
Now I'm plunging to the ground.
If only I knew how to fly,
Then I could convince myself this isn't my time to die.
Instead, I'm rocketing faster and faster,
I dive bomb to the floor.
And when my body crashes to the pavement,
I'm right back where I was before.

[Bridge]
I created a monster, a hell within my head,
Nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
Oh I'm so scared.
I created a monster, a hell within my head,
Nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
Oh I'm so scared.

[Outro]
No! No!
I created a monster, a beast inside my brain,
Nowhere to go, I'm out on my own,
My mind impaired.
Awake me from my nightmare (I'm so scared),
Awake me from my nightmare (I'm so scared),
Awake me from my nightmare (I'm so scared),
Awake me from my nightmare (I'm so scared),
Awake me from my nightmare!
