In Your Face
Children of Bodom Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Go

Conflict, terror, hear the noise
You're on the edge of a nerve-racking force
But oh my god, you're so fine
Never siege, never riot, must defy

Well look at me, what do you see?
Another trophy, a living fucking dead beat
Close your eyes take a step with me
You're soft, got no time to waste
Exhibiting abnormality
Careful what you call reality
But you will always forget
One thing I'd like you to know

I don't give a flying fuck motherfucker
I don't give a flying fuck motherfucker
I don't give a flying
I don't give a flying
I don't give a flying fuck

I'll never wait for any interference
When the other people talk all over my shit
But do I pray thee, yes I do
So fuck hypocrisy and fuck you too

Incoming

Say one more word, I double dare you (bring it on)
It's my world, you're in it, it'll take you down in a minute
You can alter your look, diversify your age
But the truth seems like a bitch slap in your face

Well look at me, what do you see?
Another trophy, a living fucking dead beat
Close your eyes, take a step with me
You're soft, got no time to waste
Exhibiting abnormality
Careful what you call reality
But you will always forget
One thing I'd like you to know

I don't give a flying fuck motherfucker
I don't give a flying fuck motherfucker
I don't give a flying
I don't give a flying
I don't give a flying fuck

Incoming

Say one more word, I double dare you (bring it on)
It's my world, you're in it, it'll take you down in a minute
You can alter your look, diversify your age
But the truth seems like a bitch slap in your face

Listening to Children of Bodom helped me get up, hold my head high, stare the shitty people in the face and fucking stand up for myself, no matter how hard people would try to put me down. It just gave me so much strength. Alexi's death feels so unreal! This guy, this music taught me how not to give a damn about spiteful people and just do my own thing. I just can't believe he's gone.

@dmasta46

right there with you brother, but he ain't gone. He's immortalized through his epic music which has brought all of us together and kept us strong in times of darkness. He's a legend, and legends don't die. RIP

@damienwarlock

@B-isfor
