"Nightmare/The Dreamtime" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
Lie back and dream of me
Red death to set you free
We turn the screws to make you die
Soft flesh and razor blades
Golgotha, ace of spades
Steel needles kiss your pretty eyes
All mine, all mine, black night, moonshine
All mine, all mine, nightmare, the dreamtime

Black terror stalks the night
Claws to clutch and fangs to bite
A dark and faceless crawling fear
Despair, you can't resist
Now the lizard's kiss
The reptile hisses in your ear

All mine, all mine, black night, moonshine
All mine, all mine, nightmare, the dreamtime

Dead voices speak through me
Of things that should not be
The prince of wounds, the lord of flies
Evil within ourselves
We need nobody else
We tell ourselves the best of lies
All mine, all mine, black night, moonshine
All mine, all mine, nightmare, the dreamtime

Nightmare, the dreamtime

    General CommentHere are the backwards phrases:

    the opening part isn't actually backwards ;-)

    "In a [siggals?] throughout. You poor, stupid, running dogs. Why is it...[that?]..."

    "Now tell me about your miserable little lives [lies?]. I do not subscribe to your superstitious, narrow-minded rights [lights?] of paranoia. I, and the people like me, will always prevail. You will never stifle free speech in any country in the world because we [He?] will die for us."
