"A World So Cold" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Ryan Martinie....
When passion's lost and all the trust is gone,
Way too far, for way too long
Children crying, cast out and neglected,
Only in a world so cold, only in a world
This cold
Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes
Then watch them drift away
Some might say, we've done the wrong things,
For way too long, for way too long

Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.

Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

burning whispers, Remind me of the days,
I was left alone, in a world this cold
Guilty of the same things, provoked by
The cause,
I've left alone, in a world so cold
Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.

Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,
Don't want any part of depression or
Darkness, I've had enough
sick and tired, bring the sun, or I'm gone,
Or I'm gone

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn,
No mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking
Slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything

I need to find a darkened corner,
A light less corner,
Where it's safer and calmer,

I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

    General CommentThis song has a deep meaning that can be interpreted many ways. That is what I love about Mudvayne's lyrics. They make things kind of abstract so that the listener can relate to it in their own way.

    General Commentthis songs meaning is stoping to take a look at the state of our own world and how cold it really is and that we will lose everyone we know in time like this lyric......"Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes, then watch them
    drift away." but thats just my opinion awsome song though love it

    General CommentI think it is about no matter how cold the world is, you have to live. You cannot close urself off, because by doing that, ur giving up, afraid and weak. "Never lied, never left, never lived, never loved
    Never lost, never hurt, never worry about being me or anyone else" bassically means that if you don't do thing, ur not living.

    General Commenti think this song is probably the personal reflection of one of the band members' pasts. i think its about how someone was left behing and maybe their parents left them and they were ridiculed for it. its also about how there is no love or caring left in the world. hint hint "a world so cold." also, since this happens to children they grow up and its jus screwing over another generation.
