"Winter Madness" as written by and Jari Tapani Maeenpaeae....
Divine creations now destroyed to uncover the haunted atmosphere
Strange visions of the ancient spirits, travesty of man appears
Coldness and the storming winds lurking for prey
The forces of the Winter reign in dreadful way, there's no escape

I'm following the mistress of night
Through the gates of snow we'll fly
We'll fly

Winter - The realm of eternal ice
Snowfall and darkness descends upon the vales of time
Distant caress of the sun's fading light
The lands were painted white with the Winter's might

My hands are frozen, my mind is at the edge of madness
Oh how many nights and days, I've been lost in this land of sadness

From the primitive thoughts, under the glimmering snow
And burning stones, they'll rise
The artful spirit: "You don't have to die,
You can rule in afterlife, just concede your soul to me,
(Your life is cheap) no price "

    General Commenti don't think there's any deeper meaning at all.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure this song is about depression; maybe Jari wrote this song after he was diagnosed with Tuberculosis?

    General CommentOnly Jari could tell us for certain what it actually means, but I'm fairly certain that despite the melancholy pervasive on the entire album, none of the songs are about suicide.

    as for the meaning, I think this song has the same meaning as the album cover :)
    The Winter imagery seems pretty literal. And note that the lines "You don't have to die, you can rule in afterlife, just concede your soul to me, (your life is cheap) - no price -" is attributed to The Artful Spirit. Couple that with the line "I'm following the mistress of night" and I think we've got the meaning.
    I'm sure you're all familiar with the album cover, a dead or dying man lying in the snow and a glimmering light just off in the distance.
    Translate that into pure emotion and there you have it :)

    General CommentWoW I ccan't believe i'm the first to post, well I can tell you this, this song is awesome enough that I made a profile on this website to tell you that. I think it might be about suicide and trying not to commit suicide "You don't have to die"
    "My hands are frozen, my mind is at the edge of madness
    Oh how many nights and days, I've been lost in this land of sadness"
    "The forces of the Winter reign in dreadful way, there's no escape"
    I also think that Jari might be using winter as a metaphor for one he loved that he was dying to live for her. But I really don't know
