Isolated so long, blighted by the first frost.
Longing for the warmth of human touch.
Through this wall of ice I can see you.

Callous only outside, from the kicking
And the beating down.
Please rip them from my body, please!

Glacier growing larger.
Mirror growing darker.
Do you see the blue?

My forefront of consciousness.
Has been ignored.
The healing touch of time has abandoned me.
Abandoned me!

The longing brings me near, but the fear
Keeps me inches/worlds away.

Reaching through the ice at last.
But you feel the frost and run.
Run from me back to the secure.
(You didn't belong here anyway)

And I'm left still, still longing
Still cold
So cold.

    General CommentPicked this album up today actually (souls at zero) diggin it so far, I like the different dimensions neurosis packs into a compact disc. Plus its strange.

    General CommentI believe that this song is about social anxiety in some form. He wants to reach out to the world, because he's so desperately alone. But every time that he does, he "[feels] the frost" and "[runs] back to the secure."
