"Life Burns!" as written by Eicca Toppinen and Lauri Ylonen....
We break our enemies with fear, and
We've seen how the tears come around
We built our confidence on wasteland
We've seen how the walls come down

Life burns

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

Life burns

We have no sympathy for the lost souls
We've chosen the path of disgrace
We give this life to our children
And teach them to hate this place

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil

Man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

Man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

Life burns
Life burns
Life burns

    General CommentAhh, the Rasmus... how they fell.
    Anyways, this song seems pretty straight-forward, especially the lines "We have no sympathy for the lost souls/We've chosen the path of disgrace/We give this life to our children/And teach them to hate this place". It's about humanity and how everything ends so easily, life, the world... mmhmm.
