"Mask Of Sanity" as written by and Alexander Kuoppala Aleksi Laiho....
I can't waste away, I'm slowly losing my way forever
Better raise your slave for me anymore
Daylight's sin inside, day's growing closer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be alone

Voices are calling me, 'be my night!' this devil's sigh
Yeah, shadows are tainting me, yeah,
I know that only you can render pain

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity

I can't waste away, I'm slowly getting my way forever
Better is what I used to feel alone
Shattered light's sin in taint, day's growing longer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be with you

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity

    General CommentThis song is about becoming mad, and letting anger take over your mind and body.
    The lyrics say "be my night", but I think the correct meaning would be "Be my knight!", as in my warrior/protector.

    General CommentA "mask of sanity" is when a serial killer lives his normal life in between acts of murder.

    General CommentThis is the first song of Bodom I ever heard and is my favorite by far! I always thought this song spoke of giving up on trying to be something that you aren't for another's sake. "Better is what I used to feel alone" and the fact that the lack of peace of mind causes him to want to lose his "mask of sanity" to retrieve it are what I base that on.

    And yeah, don't mess with the keyboardist. I really think that the keyboards cause the most confusion about their genre but they are fucking awesome!
