"Night Terrors" as written by and Wayne R. (static-x)/campos Wells....
In time I'll get this out of
Get this out of my mind
Where am I?
I can't see
I fear for my life
Fear of this fright

They haunt me
And they taunt me
Try to relax
Let it happen
My hopes tyurn to crystal matter
Watch them shimmer
As they shatter

Night terrors in my mind
Thoughts I cannot hide
Dreams that play on my cold fears
Night terrors in my mind
Am I really dead?
I can't tell, it feel's so real

Remember what you once said?
Every passing fragile moment
Is another chance to turn it around
I want to try and work it out

Night terrors in my mind
Thoughts I cannot hide
Dreams that play on my cold fears
Night terrors in my mind
Am I really dead?
I can't tell, it feel's so real to me

Get out of my mind
Get out of my head
I wish you were dead
I can't take it
Get out of my mind
Get out of my life
I'll curse you tonight
I just can't take it anymore

    General CommentI think this song is probably about him having thoughts of a girl thinking these bad thoughts that he's afraid are real, like fearing that she cheated on him or something, and its just him wishing it would all just go away because it's killing him inside.

    However when I first heard the song I thought maybe it was about drugs and it was about him trying to like fight his addiction off and going through withdrawals

    General CommentWellllll... I remember when I was doing alot of drugs, after a while (especially with no sleep) it starts to really fuck with your head. I'd try to stay high all the time, to keep me from sleeping, because I was terrified of the things I would see when I actually finally did crash, haha. Dreams incorporate thoughts from both the concious and subconcious, so imagine all the crazy shit that comes from your concious when you're awake and high on whatever + delirium + the subconcious terrors.... that for me = some really fucked up Night Terrors, heh.

    General Commenti think it's some kind of dreams that he sees and can't divide it from reality. it that dreams he's actually dead, or he dies.
    cold fears are like fear of death, i think...

    General CommentNightmares of course,why you think it's about a girl all the time? I think he's afraid of death or anything that might caus him death

    Another choice-he could be getting away with murder,now it's hunting him

    Anyway,it's something that bothers you I think and it won't leave you

    General Commentok, listen, Night Terros is an actual medical condition, anyone can have it, but its most common in children from like 5 months to 12 or so years old, it induces insane halucinations increased heartrate/breathing rate, and fits of extreme fear. thats what the song seems about to me, maybe one of te members of Static-X has Night Terror Syndrome?, if you want to know more, look it up.

    General Commentthis song always reminds me of when i had major surgery and the painkillers i was on gave me the most horrible nightmares i've ever had.
    what was worse was that i was so out of it, i couldn't remember what was a dream and what had really happened.
    i was so convinced one of the nurses was trying to kill me, i'd start screaming and crying whenever she was in the room until she left and a diferent nurse came in.
    that was such a bad week... four years later and i still have nightmares about it.

    General Commentyeah its about night terrors. i had the syndrome but i grew out of it. let me tell u something, if u had these u know what this song is saying exactly. shit was fucked up. i used to be afraid to fall asleep. usually people during the episode don't really remember it but the best way i can explain it for me is like being stuck in this trance of fear. u can see everything around u but cant do anything to get out of it.It's like being posessed i guess u could put it

    My Opinionthis song is about the condition night terrors. I had one last night... I relate to how he felt blinded or trapped in the terror, it is incredibly horrific. I felt like I was in hell, worse than any pain I have ever experienced. I also relate to this song because it seems like one of the causes of his night terrors could be some great stress he is trying to work through and overcome, much like myself. perfect style of music to sing about this condition.. the commanding of this "demon" to leave at the end and the sad realization that you just have to endure it.. "I curse you tonight"...
