On the eve of their death
they are baptized
in the unholy waters of Bodom
With no hint of the torture awaiting
to greet them at the break of dawn

When the calm is setting in
we'll watch it swiftly disappear
Too many years of silence
soon he's bound to reappear

The Reaper
is calling for you to come home
With the thrust of a switchblade
on the grip of a madman
And the waters of Bodom
turn a blood shade of red
As the Children Of Bodom
lake their last breath.

And now decades later
on this haunted shore
we all better take caution...
for the reaper wants more...

    General Commentyup its about the murders in the famous bodom lake.
    This song was so fun to learn to play years ago...but now all the wannabe guitarists play it and it starts to annoy.
    Its like in all the music shops you could here some crappers play the song so crappy that it annoys the hell out of you. Wanted to strangle them all the time. People please learn to play the guitar before going to play something like bodom in public places.

    General CommentAnother song based on the Lake Bodom murders. The band just based the title of the tune on the xmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night". Oh! Merry Fucking Christmas everyone!

    General CommentThe driving riff after the pause is the best. It makes for a wicked opening mosh pit.
