Title: There's A Devil In The Church
Warnings/Notes: Spoilers for Daredevil Seasons 1 & 2. 8tracks stream and DL available.


Matt Murdock is a blind lawyer by day who fights crime at night as the vigilante Daredevil. As a young boy he is blinded by a radioactive substance after he pushes a man to safety from an oncoming vehicle. While he can no longer see, the radioactive exposure heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability and gives him a "radar sense".

He has daddy issues after losing his father, the struggling boxer "Battlin'" Jack Murdock (who is murdered after reneging on his promise to dive during a fight) and his martial arts mentor Stick (who abandons Matt after the boy starts getting emotionally attached; because he is a dick).

Matt values justice very highly. He convinces his friend Foggy Nelson to quit their internship at Landman and Zack to start their own firm to work for the innocent underdog. When the judicial system fails he seeks justice as Daredevil.

He is a brutal fighter who frequently heavily injures the criminals that he comes up against, but he usually attempts to stop short of killing his opponents (and has avoided it so far). As a Catholic, Matt experiences a lot of guilt over how much he enjoys beating criminals bloody and he frequently struggles with whether his actions are right in the eyes of God.

"We don't live in a world that's fair, we live in this one. And I'm doing everything I can to make it a better place."
― Matt Murdock


God Put A Smile Upon Your Face by Coldplay

Where do we go?
Nobody knows
I've gotta say I'm on my way down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line?
I've gotta say I wasted all your time, honey honey
Where do I go to fall from grace?
God put a smile upon your face

Now when you work it out I'm worse than you
Yeah, when you work it out I wanted to
Now when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine

Blindness by Metric
Send us a blindfold
Send us a blade
Tell the survivors
Help is on the way

I was a blindfold
Never complained
All the survivors
Singing in the rain

I was the one with the world at my feet
Got us a battle
Leave it up to me

Boxer by The Gaslight Anthem
You took it all gracefully on the chin
Knowing that the beatings had to someday end
You found the bandages inside the pen
And the stitches on the radio

But there was something heavy holding you down
And there were whispers that were driving you crazy
And now you haunt the heart of this town
Remember when I knew a boxer, baby?

And your tattooed knuckles, oh how they grind down
Try to be a man, tough just like your father
Try to settle down, more like c-calm down
Remember them songs and the reasons we were singing for

David by Noah Gundersen
I keep kicking at the curb with my worn out shoes
And I keep running into strangers that say I know you
And I don't wanna be a proud man, just wanna be a man
A little less like my father and more like my dad

I wanna hunt like David
I wanna kill me a giant man
I wanna slay my demons
But I got lots of them
I got lots of them

God's Gonna Cut You Down by Johnny Cash
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler,
The gambler,
The back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Arsonist's Lullabye by Hozier
When I was a child, I heard voices
Some would sing and some would scream
You soon find you have few choices
I learned the voices died with me

When I was a child, I'd sit for hours
Staring into open flame
Something in it had a power
Could barely tear my eyes away

All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever tame your demons
But always keep 'em on a leash

This Is Gonna Hurt by Sixx: A.M.
Feels like your life is over
Feels like all hope is gone
You kiss it all away
Maybe, maybe

This is a second coming
This is a call to arms
Your finest hour won't be
Wasted, wasted

Hey, hey
Hell is what you
Make, make
Rise against your
Fate, fate
Nothings gonna keep you down
Even if it's killing you
Because you know the truth

Listen up, listen up
There's a devil in the church
Got a bullet in the chamber
And this is gonna hurt

Raise Hell by Dorothy
Gotta raise a little hell

Young blood, run like a river
Young blood, never get chained
Young blood, heaven need a sinner
You can't raise hell with a saint

Young blood, came to start a riot
Don't care what your old man say
Young blood, heaven hate a sinner
But we gonna raise hell anyway

Raise hell
Raise hell
Somebody gotta
Gotta raise a little hell

Baby drop them bones
Baby sell that soul
Heaven fare thee well
Somebody gotta
Gotta raise a little hell

(Oh my my, oh hell yeah)
Somebody gotta
Gotta raise a little hell
(Oh my my, oh hell yeah)
Somebody gotta
Gotta raise a little hell
