Album: Hatebreeder (1999)

  • The night of timeless fire is drawing near
    I flee, throughout the years of throe
    Watching through a mirror, as I fall apart
    I see a wreck, I'm burning

    I see angels burning, falling down in ruins
    Looking down I see me, I'm my own enemy
    Burn

    Watching myself decaying, falling from high spirits
    I flee, throughout the ruins of me
    Longing for finding my way out
    Leaving myself, there's nothing left for me
    The ruins are about to crumble down

    The flame is dying by shivery winds of jet black skies
    It reflects hatred in my eyes

    I, I see angels burning, falling down in ruins
    Looking down I see my ashes scattered around my grave
    Angels whispering fire, no longer I'm alive
    Settled down I'm done with the trip to my kingdom come Writer/s: Aleksi Laiho, Henri Samuli Seppaelae, Janne Wirman, Jaska Ilmari Raatikainen, Sami Okko Aleksanteri Kuoppala
