About Downfall

"Downfall" is a single taken from the second studio album Hatebreeder, by the Finnish metal band Children of Bodom. The song, originally called "Forevermore", was written by the lead vocalist Alexi Laiho. The video of "Downfall" was directed by Mika Lindberg. Side-b contains the cover track "No Commands" by fellow Finnish band Stone. The single spent a total of 11 weeks on the Finnish charts, 2 of which were at #1. It is usually the last song played live at Children of Bodom gigs. They sometimes use an extended intro by keyboardist Janne Wirman in which Laiho and guitarist Roope Latvala play the riffs of famous metal songs (such as Dio's Holy Diver and Judas Priest's Breaking the Law) after which they begin playing the song's main riff.

 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

The night of timeless fire is drawing near
I flee, throughout the years of throe
Watching through a mirror, as I fall apart
I see a wreck, I'm burning

I see angels burning, falling down in ruins
Looking down I see me, I'm my own enemy

Watching myself decaying, falling from high spirits
I flee, throughout the ruins of me
Longing for finding my way out
Leaving myself, there's nothing left for me
The ruins are about to crumble down.

The flame is dying by shivery winds of jet black skies
It reflects hatred in my eyes

I see angels burning, falling down in ruins
Looking down I see my ashes scattered around my grave

Angels whispering fire, no longer I'm alive
Settled down I'm done with the trip to my kingdom come
