"Children of Bodom" as written by and Aleksi Laiho Aleksanteri Kuoppala....
In the silence of darkness, among the shadows of the dead we hear
And a wolf howling hungry to wake up children of the graves
(Unripe vengeance!) The cult that serves as revenge
Has put forward its fangs to declare a fucking war (war)
Only calmless spirits of corpses are passing by
The altars of Bodom where everything but death is a lie (death is a lie)
To spill your blood to become our wine
We'll reborn reality where only the wild will survive (wild survived)

(Kill!)

The clash of wickedness veils lake Bodom blood red
We have gathered our souls to praise the triumph of death

Children Of Bodom, angry are rising
Running amok slaying with a sense of desire
From the twilight of the past, (among) the victims who died
Something wild has survived

Only calmless spirits (of corpses) are passing by
The altars of Bodom where everything but death is a lie
To spill your blood to become our wine
(We'll reborn reality where only the) wild will survive

(This is something dark, I find your fears
We have gathered our dark souls to embrace the righteous pull of death
You'll obey the dark
You'll become one of us
Taitors)

Children Of Bodom, angry are rising
Running amok slaying with a sense of desire
From the twilight of the past, (among) the victims who died
Something wild has survived

    General CommentYes, the song is of course about the murders of lake bodom, which were the inspiration for the band's name, that hails from a nearby town. Interestingly enough it seems as if these murders have now been solved after about 45 years. The person who has murdered the three kids camping at lake bodom apparently was the fourth kid who was with them. Why he was not suspected or caught before will probably remain a mystery of the finnish police.
