Children Of Bodom – Follow The Reaper lyrics
(Death be not proud, though some have called thee mighty and dreadful, thou art not so.)

Losing the war I care to win
Though I strive deep from within.

Life could be beautiful for anybody it's for
But I'd swear this mothafuckin' shit is rotten to the core

The portal has been past and it's
Time to make a turn, to follow the reaper
Until the point of no return

When your blindly death-raying blade
Sweeps the griefs and fears away
I cross my heart and hope to die
Thy freedom will be mine

Sinking down in the ocean of severe emotions
Grab a bottle to drink up the pain-relieving potion
But after all, that got boring too so no matter
What happens I couldn't give a damn or two

The portal has been past 'til the
Point of no return
No more lines to cross
No more bridges to burn

Now when your blindly death-raying blade
Swept my griefs and tears away
I'd never go back to cross that line
I cross my heart and hope to die... Die

(I was only 21 when I died)

    He know hes going to lose the war. This war can be anything like life or a real battle. He then says that life can be beautiful for anybody by the way you look at it but he says that actually its pure s*t. The chance of winning the war or making his life back to normal again is long gone. So now he is looking to kill himself so he's searching for the angel of death. Which by the way is suicide. One can drink the emotional pain away but that can't be going on forever so drinking the emotions away is so not an option. Now his mind is full of griefs like maybe mental suffering arising from any cause, as misfortune, loss of friends, misconduct so now he is sure to kill himself with no doubt and second thoughts.
