Bed Of Razors
Children of Bodom Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I see the candle light burning in your
Eyes, flareing up my eyes in flames
On this pitch-black summer night
Of passion and pain

The razor caressed my flesh
And my arms turned red, I feel a vast desire
Years of pain are flowing down my arms.
Sweet, red, warm stream you drink, make me released
Give me your hand, let me make you feel the ease,
In the bed of razors we bleed together...

I feel the fire burning in my heart,
I see it sparkling in your eyes
The blaze you're feeding more and more

The razor caressed your flesh and your arms turned red.
I feel your vast desire
Tearing pain is flowing down your arms.
Sweet, red, warm stream I drink to make you released




Holding your arms, cherish this composure,
In the bed of razors we sleep together, forever

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Children of Bodom's song Bed of Razors are a powerful depiction of the intense passion and pain that two lovers share, described through the metaphor of a bed of razors. The first verse describes how the candle light burning in the lover's eyes ignites a flame in the singer's eyes, intensifying the emotions of the moment. The second line of the verse "flareing up my eyes in flames" is very evocative and metaphorical, suggesting that the singer becomes inflamed with passion and desire.


The second verse delves deeper into the imagery of the razor blades, with the singer describing the sensation of the razor caressing their flesh, turning their arms red. The phrase "Years of pain are flowing down my arms" suggests that the singer has been living with emotional pain for a long time, and the physical pain brought by the razor blades is a way to release that pain. The phrase "Sweet, red, warm stream you drink, make me released" is particularly striking, as it suggests that the blood flowing from the razor cuts is a kind of release for the singer.


The chorus of the song shifts from the singer's perspective to the lover's perspective, with the lover describing how the fire of passion burns in their heart, and how they see it reflected in the singer's eyes. The line "The blaze you're feeding more and more" suggests that the lover is willing to go to great lengths to satisfy their desire. The second verse of the chorus mirrors the second verse of the song, with the lover feeling their own vast desire and experiencing the tearing pain of the razor cuts, which the singer drinks to make them both released. The final line of the song "In the bed of razors we sleep together, forever" suggests that the lovers' intense passion and pain will be both their pleasure and their doom, as they are trapped forever in this cycle of desire and pain.
