Nightmare Be Thy Name
Mercyful Fate Lyrics


Master, you know I never pray
Master, nothing can keep you away

Nightmare be thy name
Nightmare be thy name

The dreams they always do come true
Second sight, and I don't want to know

[Chorus]

You got to stop this game, before I go
Insane--you drive me insane
You would follow me straight to the grave
And beyond--yes, you would

In Hell
I see the fate of others
Break the spell
This night has been on forever

[Chorus]

You got to stop this game, before I go
Insane, before I go insane

Insane--you drive me insane
You would follow me straight to the grave
And beyond--yes, you would

In Hell
I see the fate of others
Break the spell
This night has been on forever

You got to stop this game, before I go
Insane--you drive me insane
You would follow me straight to the grave
And beyond--yes, you would

You got to stop this game, before I go
Insane, before I go insane

What a couple of powerful creative musicians! King Rules!

Count William Jannusch

Absolutely killer. I am a sworn King Diamond and Mercyful Fate freak forever..I have seen him live with and without Fate about 20 times!! I saw Mercyful Fate in 1993 and 1994. I saw King solo between 1987 and 2014, about 16 or 17 times.

You sir are a lucky man! I've only seen King twice! But both times it was an absolute sight to behold!!! He is such a amazing performer as well as a legendary singer.... True masterpieces EVERY SINGLE SHOW! 🤟😈🤟 HAIL TO THE KING!!!

I find it incredible that, now at age 62, he still has the same awesome range he did in the '80's.
