"The Children Of The Night" as written by Tomi Petteri Putaansuu, Sampsa Petteri Astala, Jussi Antero Sydanmaa, Erna Inari Kaarina Westerlund and Sami Kristian Wolking....
I hid them under the floor
for their being here made me sore
And on that day I feld kinda hazy
Now they still gonna be there
'cause they're not going anywhere
with servered limbs - or call me crazy

But there are voices in the darkness
In my house every time I close my eyes

In the dead of night - I hear 'em sigh
The chilren of the night are calling
Hear 'em cry - they still defy
Endlessly I feel like falling
Now they're all - my children of the night

"These skulls are so small, Here are seven of them in all
I swear to God now they're deadly silent"

But there's voices in the darkness
Getting louder all the time

Now little feet tap at the end of my bed
Remorse I seize
I feel there's someone leaning over my head
Seven breaths, they freeze!

    General CommentWell I think that this song means really what it sounds like. Seven children murdered and hit under the floor of the murderers house. However I do not think that the house is haunted, the lyrics lead me to beieve that it is his guilty conscience making him hear noises. He is now paranoid and filled with guilt.
    Just like Edgar Poes story Tale Tale whatever it was lol

    General CommentThat's a good interpretation, though I wouldn't rule out the idea of the children haunting him literally as well, considering Lordi's other works.
