Well, literally it means that Saimaa cannot be explained with words... which doesn't make much sense....

A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Yup, Oro translated it correctly.

As for the meaning, I guess it's trying to say that you have to visit Saimaa (the biggest lake in Finland) to truly understand what it's like, or something like that.

It's not that far-fetched though, the lake region is a damn beautiful place. The lakes aren't very regular in shape, so the area is a sprawling mess of meandering waterways and islands.

It's the name of hje new Haive album. I was talking about it on another message board and a Finnish dude came on and said "This is the gayest album title I ever heard" and also commented on it not making any sense.

You tell that guy to go back to his mommy and ask her if she'd buy him a new Children of Bodom album.
