On the eve of their doom
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.

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

    well they were sort of kids. they were 2 15 year girls and 2 18 year old guys. both girls and and one of the guys died the other one had severe wounds but not as bad as the others (suspiciously) about 40 years later (aroun 2004) he was arrested and was later found "innocent" in court. it was believed that the guy who lived and one of the girls were going out or something like that and they had a big arguement before they all went to bed. also of the three that were murdered she had the worst wounds by far

    The whole song is about the Lake Bodom murders. I think madman and the reaper are associated with the murderer, Children of Bodom are the victims (the victims were kids, fyi)
