From the album Solace

Lyrics

He greets your surrender
with a gag and I told you so
he’s so anxious to own you
he’s vibrating in his shoes
he seemed harmless
just another man
until it was too late to run
you wish your only problem
was breaking away
the surprise that you saw coming
is that you’d rather stay
I must keep up the charade
for if he knew he may want me

Nightmare Man you’re my favorite Halloween
you’re not a good dream
but you’re ticket out of here
through these doors of fear

we continue this game of cat and mouse
I feel him closer ready to pounce
although I show him I am scared
it is him who is ensnared
Nightmare Man you’re my favorite Halloween
oh, Nightmare Man you’re not a good dream
promise you’ll never
set me free
