Creatures of the night
Creatures of the night

The sky in the dark of the night
Stalk our prey
When people are asleep
The legions of the grave
From their minds
Ripping hatred

Creatures of the night
Creatures of the night

We're plundering the dark
Kill their ways
Of death upon the mind
They must be put to death
No more lies
Killing wisdom

Creatures of the night
Creatures of the night

Effects of demon power
Bind the grip
Of death upon the soul
The words of hope and faith
To the lost
Bringing Jesus

    My Interpretation
    This is the band mission statement at this point in time. The lyrics are about how Mortification works behind the scenes, to bring light into the darkest night. Much of Scrolls of the Megilloth sounds as if it was wandering from place to place, either unable to find a secure location or continuing to repeat the themes that are secure. The production, Steve's vocals and Michael's guitars sound weathered, worn down by the darkness surrounding them. The historical significance of the album in general matches up...that's why it's one of the Christian metal classics.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
