"So Cold" as written by Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fincke, Mark James Klepaski and Jeremy Hummel....
Crowded streets all cleared away
One by one
Hollow heroes separate
As they run

You're so cold
Keep your hand in mine
Wise men wonder while
Strong men die

Show me how it ends
It's alright
Show me how defenseless
You really are
Satisfied and empty inside
That's alright
Let's give this another try

If you find your family
Don't you cry
In this land of make believe
Dead and dry

You're so cold
But you feel alive
Lay your hands on me
One last time

Show me how it ends
It's alright
Show me how defenseless
You really are
Satisfied and empty inside
That's alright
Let's give this another try

Show me how it ends
It's alright
Show me how defenseless
You really are
Satisfied and empty inside
That's alright
Let's give this another try

It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright

    General CommentFirst off, it's "wise men wonder while strong men die" not "while stuck in time"

    I love this song, makes me think of someone, but here's what I get out of it.

    This seems to be almost apocalyptic, sort of like... false heroes, but they don't have it in them. But I like to think of it more as metaphoric- our world, right now. How most people are so empty, stupid, not real. Pawns of society, so to speak. The hollow heroes are people who could have been real, but failed to survive as their own person.

    My favorite line is "You're so cold but you feel alive" It's awesome. I think that in this world, where so many of us are untrue to ourselves (sorry to turn this into a philosophy) and the only real way to get ahead is to shove all that down... he's the real person, and he loves a girl, and this girl has been pretending to be part of society for so long that she's cold, just like it... but he knows she's alive, or real, and he wants to rip her away from the world she's in (in this land of make-believe, dead and dry), and make her show him how she's not that invincible and unemotional robot that society is (show me how defenseless you really are).

    The strong men dying means like, the person who lives for himself (you know, like Emerson) can't live in our world because it's too hard, so they 'die'. The wise men wondering part... well... what do wise men do but wonder? :P

    Anyways, I just love this song. I hope people got what I was saying... :)
