"Cold As It Gets" as written by and Patricia J. Griffin....
To the end of the earth I search for your face
For the one who laid all of our beauty to waste
Threw our hope into hell and our children to the fire
I am the one who crawled through the wire
I am the one who crawled through the wire

There's a million sad stories on the side of the road
Strange how we all just got used to the blood
Millions of stories that'll never be told
Silent and froze in the mud
Silent and froze in the mud

I know a cold as cold as it gets
I know a darkness that's darker than coal
A wind that blows as cold as it gets
Blew out the light of my soul
Blew out the light of my soul

I dream in my sleep
I dream in my days
Of some sunny street not so far away
Where up in a window a curtain will sway
And you and I'll meet down below
You and I'll meet down below

I know a cold as cold as it gets
I fight a war I may never see won
I live only to see you live to regret
Everything that you've done
Everything that you've done
Everything that you've done

    My InterpretationSuch a powerful song... I think, or my personal interpretation, is it's about someone who's done you and other people so wrong, they almost become the bane of your existance. You're the survivor, and you carry on going through life just to prove them wrong, to get revenge. Make them regret what they did to you.

    I am the one who crawled through the wire
    There's a million sad stories on the side of the road
    Strange how we all just got used to the blood

    -- She's the one who survived it all, but she's seen people who's spark just died after what this person did. But people/the world becomes so de-sensitized, so used to seeing the suffering and aftermath and unfairness around them, they don't notice it anymore.


    I know a cold as cold as it gets
    I fight a war I may never see won
    I live only to see you live to regret
    Everything that you've done

    -- She's seen the darkest of everything, and has come through the other side. Now she's carrying on, fighting a 'war' against this person who's ruined so much, but she knows she might never find them or tell him, or get to finish it and make them regret all the hurt and destruction they caused.
