[Spoken intro:]
They say drinking is a way to die, but at the end
Dying is a way to drink, that's why...

I'll break or dance, let you decide.
Too much of foreign you bring on by.
Do you have something to blame in such short time?
You are the one crying.

Degenerate, throwing the wreck of life.
Someone is spilling your own blood.
That's very hot, scars already made.
Ready for another drink anyone?

They talk to you but no we don't.
We thought maybe you gone too far.
Day over day, they should get it hard
Yes we die, they could never stop.

Blooddrunk
Wasted again.
They smile or they will fight.
Blooddrunk
You call me insane.
You get me Blooddrunk with a razor blade.

Degenerate, dropping the wreck of life.
Someone is spilling your own blood.
That's very hot, scars already made.
Ready for another drink anyone?

Blooddrunk
Wasted again.
They smile or they will fight.
Blooddrunk
You call me insane.
You get me Blooddrunk with a razor blade.

Blooddrunk
Wasted again.
They smile or they will fight.
Blooddrunk
You call me insane.
You get me Blooddrunk with a razor blade.

    General CommentTo Mikey 69:

    Does the song title Blooddrunk not give an indication to that?

    It's a play on words, alluding to the consumption of blood, possibly as a result of Alexi's self mutilation... He came out in Metal Hammer (#177 I think) and said that the album was very much about over coming his past demons, as well as the bands...

    He is an amazing man, we're lucky he's still with us

    General CommentI love this song. I love it so much. You can feel how he feels when he sings it. Sure Alexi makes jokes and says that the band is "the product of broken bones and lots of alcohol", but bodom are one of the hardest working bands, and look at where they are now.

    Billiblades, rock on. You are so right.

    General Commentthis song is about, and i quote alexi form the Blooddrunk dvd, "its a song about the addiction of spilling your own blood, something thats happened lot recently and in the past". he is saying that the feeling that comes from self mutilation is as addicticting as drinking.
    watch the making of the blooddrunk video

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious this song is bout the attraction of alcohol. Alex and the band are bashing alcohol lovers pretty hard...

    Degenerate, throwing the wreck of life.

    (degenerate definition from dictionary.com : to fall below a normal or desirable level in physical, mental, or moral qualities; deteriorate: The morale of the soldiers degenerated, and they were unable to fight), saying that you're giving your life away

    Someone is spilling your own blood.

    Someone else is killing you and your too stupid to see.

    That's very hot, scars already made.

    Maybe about a young person and how scars are made when people start drinking at a young age.


    Ready for another drink anyone?

    obviously a rhetorical and sarcastic question.


    Most of it is self explanatory.

    General CommentThese lyrics are totally wrong.

    Here are the right ones, directly from COB's website.

    Blooddrunk
    Lyrics: Alexi Laiho

    They say drinking is a way to die
    But at the end... Dying is a way to drink

    Unquenchable thirst burns you inside
    The ruins of already burnt out mind
    Inexhaustable craving for something
    You're already crying

    Degenerate drunk with a razor blade
    Strung out spilling your own blood
    Exterminate scars already made
    Ready for another drink, can you wait?

    Detoxing, here come the withdrawals
    whispering Maybe you've gone too far
    Deep within things are getting hot
    Can't deny, take another shot

    Blooddrunk - Wasted again
    All the pain inside will fade
    Blooddrunk - You call me insane
    Degenerate bloodrunk with a razor blade

    Degenerate drunk with a razor blade
    Strung out spilling your own blood
    Exterminate scars already made
    Ready for another drink, can you wait?

    Blooddrunk - Wasted again
    All the pain inside will fade
    Blooddrunk - You call me insane
    Degenerate bloodrunk with a razor blade

    General CommentAnd I disagree with TheFinestDay. Alexi has said on multiple occasions that this song is about being addicted to cutting yourself. How can they be bashing alcohol lovers? They're alcohol lovers themselves! Have you SEEN how these guys drink? Lol.

    General Commentthis is the first and only song i've heard by children of bodom, i heard it on a sample cd with rocksound magazine. but i'm
    interested to what the rest of the album is like..........

    not sure about the meaning but it did remind me of a line in the movie "300" when artemis goes "blooddrunk" and viciously attacks a group of persians warriors after his son is killed in battle.

    General Commentreading through the lyrics and a intiview with band in 'metal hammer' this song sounds very much like its Alexi trying 2 let his skeletons out of the closet. he was self harming himself b4 Something wild came out and he overdosed on pills and acohol.
    so i reckon he is mentioning those incidents
