[Spoken intro:]
They say drinking is a way to die,
But at the end... dying is a way to drink, that's why...

Unquenchable thirst burns you inside
The ruins of already burnt out mind
Inexhaustable craving for something
You're already crying.

[Bridge:]
Degenerate drunk with a razor blade
Strung out spilling your own blood.
Exterminate scars already made.
Ready for another drink, can you wait?

Detoxing, here come the withdrawals.
[Whispering:] Maybe you've gone too far.
Deep within things are getting hot
Can't deny, take another shot.

[Chorus:]
Blooddrunk - wasted again.
And inside all pain will fade
Blooddrunk - you call me insane.
Degenerate bloodrunk with a razor blade.

[Solos]

[Bridge]
[Chorus x2]

    There is meaning to All CoB songs. This one refers to how Alexi Was suicidal around the hatebreeder era. The meaning of this song bears (in a way) a similar meaning to Bed of Razors.

    The way alexi growls and shouts out these words, it shows da hidden pains of a human heart.may be alexi used to do it to his ownself,but that doesn't mean its 'bout him only. Also alexi never tells there r the ways to get over depression that you gotta follow or something. Its what you feel inside your bleeding heart... To get rid of it, the pain, to spill it out...
    Love you alexi for these great words.

    Actually, damienx666x, Alexi has told people that he USED to cut-- in his youth, just not the general public. Here's proof from an actuall interview with Henkka Blacksmith, Children Of Bodom's bassist, about the true meaning of Blooddrunk. "PW: Moving onto the new album the 1st question to get out the way is the title. Can you tell us about the actual meaning of being Blooddrunk?

    HS: As far as I understand, the song is about Alexei’s wild youth. I’m not certain but I think it is to do with when he was having mental issues and was cutting himself and getting drunk. It’s a sad story about how people can sort of do that stuff really. Nowadays of course he no longer does it; he found the way of getting satisfaction for example from his guitar playing."

    Well... There you have it.. that should answer the question about wheather Alexi cut in his youth or not.. and it should also give you the true meaning of Blooddrunk.
