Downfall

  • Lyrics
  • A nihilistic song from Children of Bodom's second album, "Downfall" finds lead singer Alexi Laiho screaming out in desperation:

    I'm my own enemy
    Watching myself decaying
    Falling from high spirits


    In our interview with Laiho, he said: "It was more about feeling suicidal and the moment where you are about to do it."
