"Are You Dead Yet?" as written by and Alexi Laiho....
Are you dead yet

Don't hear, don't deem. drown in before you dive
Don't care, commit to your self destruction drive
I kiss the ground with love beyond forever
Flip off the sky with bleeding fingers till I die

Enemy, take a one good look at me
Eradicate what you'll always be
Your tainted flesh, polluted soul through a mirror I behold
Throw a punch, shards bleed on the floor
Tearing me apart but I don't care anymore
Should I regret or ask myself
Are you dead yet?

Wake up, don't cry. regenerate to deny the truth
The fiction you live in blindfold your eyes
Disclosure, self loathing. this time you've gone too far
Or could it be, my nemesis that you are me?

Enemy, take a one good look at me
Eradicate what you'll always be
Your tainted flesh, polluted soul through a mirror I behold
Throw a punch, shards bleed on the floor
Tearing me apart but I don't care anymore
Should I regret or ask myself are you dead yet?

    General CommentI read somewhere that Alexi said it was about him going through hell and looking in the mirror and asking himself "Are You Dead Yet?"

    General CommentI was at a Bodom show in Philadelphia yesterday and Alexi said it was about him drinking so much and having his arm broken three times. So the song is about him asking himself Are You Dead Yet

    General CommentI saw the video to this song and it was pretty cool. Not like the other metalvideos out there that r just preformance-based. IcedEarth and BloodRed got the meaning.

    General CommentI think the last line in the chorus is cool. like if life's sh!t you can either get depressed about it, or think, I'm not dead yet, (ie. ask yourself rhetorically Are You Dead Yet? ) obviously the answer's no, so life could be worse, so look up and get on with it.

    General Commentthis song absolutely rules, as do C.O.B.

    as for the meaning, it sounds like its about his own self loathing. well the chorus, anyway. he's referring to an enemy that he wants to eradicate, and he sees him through a mirrir, i.e. the enemy is himself. he's so pissed off he punches the mirror ("throw a punch, shards bleed on the floor"). the glass cuts into him, but he doesnt care ("shards bleed on the floor, tearing me apart but i dont care anymore"), and he's wondering if he should regret his own self harm, or if he hasn't done enough of it yet ("should i regret or ask myself 'are you dead yet?' ")

    General CommentYeah this song it awsome. I agree that its about an enemy.....Himself. And its all about self hatred and self loating.
