"Children of Decadence" as written by and Alexander Kuoppala Aleksi Laiho....
Running under cover of the moonlight
Shadow death row. At the night we're
Running wild with no hope for tomorrow
No tomorrow

As we're walking through the fire,
That burns within us all. If ya want to take
A glance to the blaze of pain, you'll never
Be the same.

You want to get closer and get a taste
Of death? I know ya want to fuck me down
Til' I'm bleeding red. I couldn't care less,
I'll end up rotting in mud, so c'mon mothafucka
And gimme yer best shot.

You really thought you'd see through what
I am and what I need, we are children of
Rebellion, we'll fight, we'll bleed.
Don't try to come to preach over us and
Over me, we're children of decadence, we're
Right, we're real, we will fight, we'll bleed,
We're mothafucking dying breed, we're dying...

All wrecked and fucked I wonder if this is the way
I'm supposed to go. But that is all I ever got, that
Is all I'll ever get, so I just let it go.

    General CommentI think that this song could be about some race (possibly african americans) fighting for their rights to be equal or something like that...Awesome song and guitarist!

    General CommentI read that it's about gangwars and is also making a statement about the bands attitude.

    General CommentThis song, like Hatecrew Deathroll after it, is about the band itself.
    Personally I hate it when bands write songs that are basically about how they walk around and do stuff.
    F.ex some of Metallica's early stuff are just about them travelling around playing music (whiplash, seek & destroy) good songs though they are.

    so yeah.

    General CommentThis is a good song....Just seems like a tough song like Hatecrew Deathroll or In Your Face. Prechorus 2 ends with the greatest line ever lol.

    General Commentgopher: That would be a synthesiser (a keyboard for all those n00bs out there) playing. Jani plays in all Children of Bodom songs. He started for them in '96 when they were still IneartheD. So there is a history lesson for ya. (Not like you'll ever check back here) lol
