Bloody Bastard Children

We were born against our will
We were born with bloody faces
Bleeding like an autumn rain
A rain, black from blood

Our eyes flaming red
Echoes through our ears
Voices, cries and screams
Screams of evil laughter

We are the bloody bastard children
We are crying ihitiriekkos
Hiding in the rough forest
Hunting the travelers

Our father got lucky
His luck was misfortune for our mother
Our mother impregnated
Disgrace for everyone

In the darkness we suffer
Suffer if we have to
Have to get drunk from the skull
To get drunk to tease the travelers

We are the bloody bastard children
We are crying ihitiriekkos
Hiding in the rough forest
Hunting the travelers

[Korpiklaani note:
Ihtiriekko was the ghost of a dead child screaming terribly in the dark forest. In the past it was quite common to get rid of unwanted illegitimate children by just killing them and abandoning them in the forest.]
