"Surrounded By Fright"
(Pete Hammoura / Karl Sanders / Chief Spires)

Decanent world in a frenzy of evil
Slowly stripped of life
Raped of principles with a common reason
Justice for which we fight
Madmen stagger into power
Pulling strings from ivory towers
Vampire machines drain and devour
As screams strike the hour

Do you ever feel frightened in the dead of night?
Can you hear the children scream?
Lurking witches coming for you
Every night and every day
Some good, some evil
But they all know where you are
Only thing to do is run away, away
Or stay and be surrounded by fright

Surrounded by fright
I'm surrounded
Surrounded by fright

Innocent provoked, guilty set free
I don't know which way to go
What will they think of me
When I lose all control?
Nightmare, reality
Or am I just in Hell?
Think I'm on a one way ticket to being totally...

Surrounded by fright
I'm surrounded
Surrounded by fright

Invisible parasite worming away at the brain
Driving me insane: "Do this, do that."
You live, then you die. Burn me at the stake
We are the martyrs of tomorrow and today
Rise up from the fire and cry

Surrounded by fright
