He's not alive, he can't dream
Stone cold monster, thinking machine
Never feels anger or pain
What's left of his heart is inside his brain

Get down on your knees
Say pretty please
Or do you want to freeze?
The iceman cometh

My pretty pretty thing
Do you you want to freeze?

Born without a hug or an ounce of love
Doesn't know how much he can hurt someone
Do you feel the chill in his calculated prose
His words will kill if you leave yourself exposed
He is part of our generation
Let us mourn
It's too late to save this child
It started when he was born
The iceman cometh

Keep your distance, don't get too close
A beautiful girl once made that mistake
She froze

    General CommentI don't really know why, but I've always thought this song could be about Darth Vader (considering it was written before Episodes 1-3).

    General CommentI assumed it was about a fiction character inspired by the famous hitman "The Iceman".

    General CommentDefinitely a reference to The Iceman Cometh by Eugene O'Neill, it's the sequel to Long Day's Journey into Night.
