"The Frozen" as written by Corey Todd Taylor, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and James Donald Root....
The girls on the streets look all sad
In this gold encrusted little town
Why is that? Isn't this the town of dreams?
Yeah, but it comes with a price

It's a town that never does anything and takes all the credit
A place that promises so much and never has a thing to say
Or a care in the world
There is no memory here
No dream for itself but the dreams of others

And all over the world you talk
About a place you've only seen in the re-runs
Immortalized by its vice and deified for its carnage

There's money in the air there
All you have to do is reach up and grab it

In basements, garages, parking lots,
Empty lots, school yards, town cars,
Back rooms and more
Diamonds are fashioned from expectations
And fortified on a steady diet,
Of simple lives and red carpets

The ejaculating zeitgeist in night vision
Culture is a punch line in a motionless blood in the water
The sharks here play games you can't fathom
But you flock here anyway

On college money and credit cards
Spend a week bullshitting yourself that it was all true,

All of it
Just to watch in horror as it all falls
Into pieces into the gravity of reality
The starry eyes fade as it dawns on you,
Nothing is guaranteed

You are a part of the great divide, the chosen, or the frozen
Now your miles away without an egg,
Your college money is a collage of debt
And your credit cards are all snapped in fucking half

Time to wander a landscape in berethed of mercy
This is now the back lot of your failed movie
A waking dream re-written without your permission
The real luster, the soft focus, the soap opera vision
Is just the hindsight of a world who's just been lied to
Of sad surfs, and untouchable lords

You took a chance didn't you?
The chance didn't have a par for you this time around
Maybe next life

And you can't even walk home

The girls on the street all look sad
In this cardboard cut-out little town
No wonder, that's the only thing here that's real
The gold is for fools and paradise is lost
But the hungry have never bothered with the cost

Day by day they fall away like rose petals
Like ink that won't dry or fade
It just runs wild down cracks and crevices, grooves and folds
So I hope someone saves you, before you get cold
I really do

Because the girls are on set in this little black book
If you don't believe me take a closer look
If you can?

    General CommentThis song was an added bonus track to those who purchased the album through Itunes. It's like Omega, Corey just speaks it out. My take on this is that it is about Hollywood.

    General Commenti think so. But you don't have to buy the entire album. You can buy the song by itself.

    General CommentTo all those that have posted comments on this song, I feel that Corey is making a satire about young people who spend all their money in places that have been glorified by Hollywood and television. As he states, many credit card sharks hang out at those places and make these young people with debt to their name. Tell me what you think.

    General CommentThat is a good theory, mine is somewhat of the same. But I think it is just about hollywood and the "image" of hollywood in general.

    The glorified image of hollywood is shown to us each and everyday. Whether is is TV, Movies, Clothing, Etc. I feel he is talking about the fact how young and naive people dream of going to hollywood to become "Famous" to "live the dream life".

    In Hollywood, it is very expensive to even try to get in the business. If you are at all serious about it, you better been in some time of theater program before, you need to have a shitload of $$$ for an agent. And You even have to find one that is willing to represent you, not to mention the cost of living over there.

    most people that go to L.A. for this "Dream" usually don't make it. They end up run and dry with all there money spent trying for something they took a chance to get.

    And most of these people are women, or "girls" like he says in this. You see it all the time.. "What do you do for a living?" "Oh, I'm an actress." or "I'm an expiring actress" Blah blah blah..

    Most of them get shot down in the very beginning..."The girls on the streets all look sad in this cardboard cut out little town"

    Mix this with your meaning, sigmund.. I think we got the message pretty clear.

    General CommentHey Inhale. I actually had more time to listen to the song. I happen to agree with your reasoning also. Many young people, girls especially, dream of the day that they become famous and a hot topic among teens. However, their dreams are shot down by agents, perhaps agents that make them spend every dollar they have from their college money and credit cards. Keep me notified on what you think. I'll check back in a few
