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

Hold your breath then 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 singin'

[Chorus]
Silent night for the rest of my life
Silent night for the rest of my life
Violent night at the edge of your knife.
(Forgive me father, don`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 singin'

[Chorus]
Silent night for the rest of my life
Silent night for the rest of my life
Violent night at the edge of your knife.
(Forgive me father, don`t make it right)
Silent night for the rest of my life.
Silent night at the edge of your knife.
(YOU'RE GUILTY!!!)

[Whispering: x2]
Whisper, whisper, don't make a sound
Your bed is made, it's in the ground

[Screaming: x4]
Whisper, whisper, don't make a sound
Your bed is made, it's in the ground
