All is cold and frozen
Frozen the sea, frozen the sky
Frozen is death, but I cannot die
Cannot die
As the snow falls to cover this all
All is cold and cold is all
Cold, frozen
Frozen is heaven and frozen is hell
And I am dying in this living human shell
I am a dying God, coming into human flesh
I am a dying God
Frozen my heart, frozen my soul
Frozen my love
I am a dying God coming into human flesh

    General CommentIMHO,What this song is saying to the Judeo-Christian-Islamic version of god is
    "How would YOU feel if you had to deal with
    this world you claimed that you created,with all of it's suffering and misery,if YOU honestly had to live in it
    as a dying human?Condemned for all that makes you human and forced to die alone...

    General CommentI feel like this song is almost mocking the Christian god. Portraying an immortal being's desire to be able to die when the world has frozen and died, and there's nothing left.

    My InterpretationI have a theory since many stuff that I read that is that Tom was very bitter about his relationships with the band and his former record label "Loud Records". Essentially I think the whole song...possibly the rest of the album is a huge metaphor of his thoughts of being a big rock star and ended up being backstabbed and left forgotten. Like the title "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh" may possibly mean that he was a god as an like a "Metal God" like Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford ect. but over the years there where some stuff happening behind the scenes which ended up breaking up Celtic Frost. The "human flesh" part may possibly mean that his status of a god has been stripped as time goes by when every one forgot about the band and pretty much lived the rest of his life as a mortal...like a being us humans and just left forgotten like the rest of us as a human race.

    "Frozen the sea", sounds like a metaphor for "Cold Lake". Which everyone knows that album bombed. That would be something when every one has turned their backs on them and thus start the decline of the band.

    Thus being "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh".
