Trashed Lost & Strungout
Children of Bodom Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Once again, falling on the trail walking blind trade nothing
Discretion is low
It's hard to breath, taking yourself in honor I should know how low I can go

Before I go high, I'm very down
But I'll be going after it, again and again

You know I can't go the other way without being trashed lost and strung-out
When together try something going back to the question that's, "What will knock me out?"

Before I go high, I'm very down
And I'll be going after it, again and again

Come on

Maybe I should've fuckin' trashed my life
But for that I'm gonna turn to you
And the trashed people askin' my head until I sweat
Now tell me what the fuck to do

Why did it get to the point where I could do
Nothing but try and be strung-out on you
Let me drown, way deep down below
For the fleeting past to let go
Until the end I raise like a battering ram
Looking at my own reflection
Forever I shall kiss you goodbye
To kill my soul addiction

Before I walk I hit the ground
Then you know me for I get very down
Up yours and next you tell me, "Fucking whore"
And I'll be going after it, more and more

Why did it get to the point where I could do
Nothing but try and be strung-out on you
Let me drown, way deep down below
For the fleeting past to let go
Until the end I raise like a battering ram
Looking at my own reflection




Forever I shall kiss you goodbye
To kill my soul addiction

LYRICS:

Once a day falling on the trail walking blind trade nothing discretion in low,
It's hard to wait taking yourself in honor I should know how low I can go.

Before I go high I'm very down,
And I'll be going after it again and again.

You try biting all the way not be one to be trashed, lost and strungout,
Then again try something fucked to mess around with what's to coming out.

Before I go high I'm very down,
And I'll be going after it again and again.

Come on!

Maybe I shouldn't profisize my life what the fuck have I done to you?
But did you ever be harassed, with my head still trying to tell me what the fuck to do!

I need to get it to the point where I cannot do,
Nothing but trying to be strungout on you.
Let me drown way deep down below for a sleep that'll surely let go.
Until the end I raise and batter around looking at my own reflection.
Forever lost I kiss you good bye to kill my soul addiction.

Before I go I hit the ground,
The only way I ever get down,
And with the next you'll tell me where to go,
Then I'll be going after it more and more!

I need to get it to the point where I cannot do,
Nothing but trying to be strungout on you.
Let me drown way deep down below for a sleep that'll surely let go.
Until the end I raise and batter around looking at my own reflection.
Forever lost I kiss you good bye to kill my soul addiction.
