Breaking Benjamin: Dance With The Devil #MM Supernatural

Monday, October 25, 2010
These week's MM theme is about Halloween. But since it is not custom here in Indonesia to celebrate this event, I'm not familiar with any songs. So, I thought that I would post a soundtrack from one of these following TV series: Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Charmed or Supernatural. It didn't take long to make my choice when I came on several fanmade Youtube videos, which were playing Breaking Benjamin songs to scenes of the Supernatural series. Although these weren't the actual film soundtracks, I really liked what I heard for the first time, especially Dance With The Devil and Dear Agony. Besides, I totally love to see the Winchester brothers played by Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean).

If you ask me about the lyrics, I actually liked Dear Agony a little bit better than Dance With The Devil. Because, to me the message in the song was talking about fighting your own demons. Asking the crawling agony to let go of you. Still, I found the title, lyrics and video of Dance with The Devil more suitable for this week's theme. The lyrics and video also reminded me of a current relationship in my life... I'm trying to hold on a person whose character fits perfectly into the song lyrics descriptions. I still have my hopes that everything will turn out okay, because I hate to say goodbye to someone I deeply care about. Like Dean in the series who wasn't about to give up on Sam. 

Breaking Benjamin is an alternative American rock band from Pennsylvania. The song Dance with The Devil was taken from the seventh track of their third album Phobia released on August 8, 2006. Please be aware that the Supernatural television series are categorized in the genre of horor, mistery and thriller. So, the following video contains some strong graphic violence.



Dance With The Devil lyrics

Here I stand, helpless and left for dead.

Close your eyes, so many days go by.
Easy to find what's wrong, harder to find what's right.

I believe in you, 

I can show you that I can see right through all your empty lies.

I won't stay long, in this world so wrong.

[Chorus:]
Say goodbye, as we dance with the devil tonight.
Don't you dare look at him in the eye, as we dance with the devil tonight?

Trembling, crawling across my skin.
Feeling your cold dead eyes, stealing the life of mine.

I believe in you, 

I can show you that I can see right through all your empty lies.

I won't last long, in this world so wrong.

[Chorus]

Hold on. Hold on.

[Chorus]

Hold on. Hold on.

Goodbye.
