How am I supposed to love you?
Why am I too young to die?
Why does fever burn inside you?
Must I have a will to fight?
Do these questions have an answer?
Where's the truth and what's the cause?
All my problems form a puzzle
All my pieces have been lost

And I can stop
Anytime I want
And I can quit
Anytime I want
And I can stop
Anytime I want
Nothing in this world
Can tell me to

And every door's a mental scapegoat
Every wall a primal cage
Every floor a brand new level
Every window's built for dreams
Heroes never wanted status
Victims never asked for pain
Reason never needed answers
Statues never wanted change

And I can stop
Anytime I want
And I can quit
Anytime I want
And I can stop
Anytime I want
Nothing in this world
Can tell me to

Well I'm dead
I see things clearly
I fess
I feel
This pain
And hunger
Eats all my insides
Why must things be this way?

And I can stop
Anytime I want
And I can quit
Anytime I want
And I can stop
Anytime I want
Loving you might even kill me
Loving you might even kill me

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song I burst into tears...
    Scooter just has a way of putting what I feel into words...
    That's all I can say

    General CommentI didnt cry when I heard this song but holy hell is it awesome. From what I got this song is about maybe some kind of addiction and how it affects the ppl and things around the one addicted. That's just me though.

    General Commentthis song was written quite awhile ago if i remember but scooter wouldn't let it be released because, at the time he said he it was to personal and couldn't deal with it being out in the world for everyone to hear.

    i think it's very simply about his drug addictions, thankfully he went into rehab and got that all straightened out. but yeah.

    General CommentThis song was one of the reasons why they got a record deal to begin with... i think they played Ugly aswell when they were showing the music to the record company but only recently released it on a special edition on their newest C.D.

    General CommentYeah, scooter recorded this on the same night he met Atlantic Records. He laid this track down with Ugly, and showed them to the producer. The guy loved them, and they were signed. Then the whole Grundig name issue came up, and Grundig became Cold.
