"A Cold Day In Hell" as written by and Oscar Perry....
Sever.
And step forward.
I will separate myself from you.
I will walk this line unassisted and undeterred.

Sever.
Sever the strings.
I’ll cast aside your focus shifted too much for me to not question.
Your sincerity.

To manufacture misery.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything yo ever lust for will be taken from you.

Your reflection.
Ghost of a beauty queen.
Plagued with fashion.
And stain our mouths with worthless deception.
You’re a plastic perfection.
We’ll burn you to the ground.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything you ever lust for will be taken from you.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything you ever lust for will be taken from your heart.
When did this all become so meaningless?
As to your second skin.

Now the wolves become nothing more that sheep.
We set flame these apathetic trends.
Set flame the paths that have led us astray for to long.
Set flame the paths that have led us astray for the last time.
Burn.

All bets are off.
I’ll watch the heartless burn.
Tomorrow dawn will be alight with our burning bridges.
All bets are off.
I’ll watch the heartless burn.

Tomorrow dawn will be alight through seasons change I’ve watched you waste away.
Shed your skin and become.
Reach inside your chest and remove what’s left of your blackened heart.
Through the seasons change I’ve watched you waste away.

And become one with the damned.
You lust for.
Reach inside your chest and remove what’s left of your blackened heart with disdain.

    General Commenti can't belive that no one has commented on this song yet. it has the best melodic intro ever. this song is so uber good in makes a droplet of urine come out every time i listen to it. anyhoo onto the meaning.
    i think this song focuses on the singer saying about how some one he knew and had a relationship with (most possibly a girl freind) has become something that he dispises most likly through a change in trends.
    by saying "Now the wolves become nothing more that sheep." i think he is refering to how this person he once liked has changed from an individual whom used to pray on the the rest of societies 'sheep' into one of the very people whom they once prayed on. and now the singer basicaly hates them. it is the classic case of a song lyricaly based on hypocricy and how it sucks.

    in all this song is one of parkway drive's best.

    General CommentWoah only 2 comments?

    "Now the wolves become nothing more that sheep"
    That lyric really stands out to me. I think the wolves, could possibly be referring to 'lone wolves', that turn into nothing more than people who follow meaningless trends.

    Ahh so excited seeing them this October!

    General CommentI think this song is about Winston losing his faith in Christianity when he realizes how corrupt it is and that it serves no purpose.

    General CommentI can't believe there's not many comments. I freaking love this song.

    Everything you ever wanted.
    Everything you ever knew.
    Everything you ever lust for, will be taken from you.

    Best part of the whole song, I reckon.
    Parkway are awesome.....

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and I would expand upon that, but I'm short on time and here for another reason.

    Kirkrod, I say this with no offense intended. It's just the unimportant opining of a worn down, arbitrary, angst-ridden clichè of a man.

    I understand this song may offend you, if only by your interpretation of it. Words only have the solidity they do because of the meanings, feelings and hidden meanings we filter them through. Words are inert. Dead. In-and-of-themselves.

    With a song, no matter how SEEMINGLY blatant obviousness of the meaning, we can only fully understand what the writer cares to share. And even then our certainty of fact is dictated by the subconcious/concious thoughts and feelings of the writer coming out in his or her work.

    reality is perrception.

    corollary:

    what we percieve as reality IS reality.

    That goes for the whole anti-christian/anti-religion INTERPRETATION as well.

    General Commentok people... for one... this song is definatly not about a girl or a relationship.... it may very well be about christianity, but my take on it is that it is about this modern day scene we are seeing and about how we need to "burn all paths that have lead us astray" and just be who we are not what others say... and texas cries i see where you are coming from but i think it means... the people who "started" the trend just now follow anything new

    General CommentI agree with throttled, seems like this is a anti-religion song. This is a great song.


    "Now the wolves become nothing more than sheep."

    By wolves I think he meant people who follow their own rules, and have there own priorities. People who don't just go along with what people tell them to believe.

    General CommentThis song could be about being "pussy-whiped" as they call it. Maybe he had a mate who suggested "ill let a girl control me when hell freezes over" hence the becomming name of "a cold day in hell". His mate who said he's never let his girlfiriend control his life, then realized that he has. "now the wolves become sheep". And because he has, it's posibally a negative thing. It could posibally even be relating to marriage, and the cliche of sex ending in marriage: "everything you ever lust for will be taken". Also, a lot of typical males make comments like "it will be a cold day in hell before I get married!"

    Its very anrgy sounding, but that doesnt mean that it is that!
