"Dream Evil" as written by and Craig/dio Goldie....
All's well at the midnight hour
You're ready to fly
Don't think about the darkness
Or the rumbling in the sky

Somewhere on the morning road
Just waiting for you
Somethings that just could never be
Are calling up a spell so you can see, yeah!

Dream evil
The dark that you find in the back of your mind
Dream evil, dream evil

Don't go to the edge of rainbows
Don't close your eyes
Like things that can't be real
The truth is really lies

Don't wish on a rising star you could
Open up the door
Where things that just should never be
Are calling up a spell so you can see, yeah!

Dream evil
The dark that you find
Can come out of your mind
Dream evil
Take you away

Oh no it's the midnight hour
Don't leave me alone

Those things that just should never be
Are calling up a spell so you can see

Dream evil
(Dream evil)

Oh no it's the midnight hour
Don't open the door
Don't go to the edge of rainbows
Don't sleep any more
You'll dream evil
You'll dream evil
You'll dream evil
Dream evil

    General CommentLyrically, this song reminds me of "Don't Talk To Strangers". Both seem to be about the kind of religious people that tell you you'll end up in hell if you ask questions or exercise your imagination.

    Song MeaningThis song is about Sleep Paralysis, and demonic attacks during the sleep (such attacks are sometimes portrayed as Alien Abductions). Just look at the cover of the Album, there is a demon sitting on the stomach of the person sleeping. That is a deep topic, and I am glad that someone wrote about it.

    My InterpretationSheer gold, this song has a very storybook feeling and it's awesome. This song is about how we must explore what is labeled forbidden otherwise we will never know the whole truth. We must go where there is no light at times, because that is where new discoveries are made.

    General CommentThis song is about Freddy Kruger. It was considered to be in an nightmare on elm street movie. that is why Dio deceided to title the album as "Dream Evil"

    So yes is it indeed about nightmares. Just notice the evil voice that sign "Dream Evil" It's almost the exact same voice that the one of Freddy.
