Here is the second instalment of ‘Music Monday’!

This weeks song is “Devil in a Midnight Mass” and was released back in 2006 by Billy Talent. My first experience of Billy Talent like a lot of people was hearing their song “Red Flag” on the Burnout Revenge video game. At the time I wasn’t particularly  blown away by the song, in fact I remember not liking Red Flag very much (in comparison on to the other songs on the game).

It was a different story when hearing Devil in a Midnight Mass for the first time. From the moment the song starts and the lead singer shouts “YEEAH!” you know your ears are in for a good listen. The song even has an amazing ending and that’s probably my favourite part of the song. If you haven’t heard this song before and ended up really enjoying it, then I strongly suggest you check out the album that it is from, it is aptly named “Billy Talent II”.

Lyrics

A devil in a midnight mass,
He prayed behind stained glass
A memory of Sunday class
Resurrected from the past

Hold your breath and count to four
Pinky swears don’t work no more
Footsteps down the hallway floor
Getting closer to my door
I was alive but now I’m singing

[Chorus:]
Silent night for the rest of my life
Silent night for the rest of my life
Violent knight at the edge of your knife
Forgive me Father… won’t make it right
Silent night for the rest of my life
Silent night at the edge of your knife
(You’re guilty!)

A devil in a midnight mass,
killed the boy inside the man.
The holy water in his hands
Can never wash away his sins

Hold your breath and count to four
Pinky swears don’t work no more
Put my trust in God that day
Not the man that taught his way
I was alive but now I’m singing

[Chorus]

[Whispered]
Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound.
Your bed is made and it’s in the ground [x2]

[Screamed]
Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound.
Your bed is made and it’s in the ground [x4]
