For the Devil (2)__________ the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short...
Let him who hath (3)__________________________ reckon
The number of the beast for it is a (4)__________ number
It's number is six hundred and (5)__________ six

I needed time to think
To get the memories from my mind
What did I see, can I believe?
That what I saw that (8)__________ was real
And not just fantasy
Just what I saw
In my old dreams
