"Paradise" as written by Timo Kotipelto and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Late at night I find myself again
Wondering and watching TV
I can't believe what is on the screen
Something that I wouldn't care to see

Many rare species will perish soon
And we will be short on food
Why do we have to be so selfish
We've got to change our attitude

I know that I am not
The only one that's worried
Why don't we all
Wake up, and realize

Like the birds in the sky
We are flying so high
Without making any kind of sacrifice
We've got so little time

To undo this crime
Or we'll lose our paradise
It seems to me that there's no sense at all
Nobody cares it's always the same

Mother nature's crying out in pain
We are the ones to blame
I know that I am not
The only one that's worried

Why don't we all
Wake up, and realize
Like the birds in the sky
We are flying so high

Without making anykind of sacrifice
We've got so little time
To undo this crime
Or we'll lose our paradise

    General CommentI wonder if they're sarcastic:

    "Late at night I find myself again wondering and watching tv."

    He sings about the lazy people that spend their lives in front of TV, watch pretty pictures and dramatic news and think about how they must save the world and why don't nobody do something. All that while lying in front of the TV.

    Just a feeling maybe... But I think it is not the FOREST METAL song people think it to be.

    General Commentit talks about how people are going to continue thinking that everything is ok, when it really isn't. "why don't we all wake up, and realize." Also that the things that us humans do, such as deforestation, and exploding species until they are extinct is definitely wrong, and that if we don't take action, we will lose our home, aka, our beautiful planet. "Like the birds in the sky we are flying so high, without making any kind of sacrifice. We've got so little time to undo this crime or we'll lose our Paradise."
