While i lie here burning.
You're encased in ice.
Tainted eyes upon you're tainted soul.
It's no wonder i'm so cold.
A terrible thing i'm learing.
As tears are turned to ice.
These four walls will be my dreaded foes.
As I rot here in this hole.

Do you conspire to hold me down?
Do you conspire to hold?
Do you conspire to hold me down?
Have i wasted a dream?

Restless seas will murder me tonight.
As you appease effortlessly.
The open mouths of hungry thieves.
There'll be no silent empathy inside
No colour or shades of hope.

Do you conspire to hold me down?
Do you conspire to hold?
Do you conspire to hold me down?
Have i wasted a dream?

    General CommentI think is about depression.

    Specifically I think is about feeling depress and overwhelmed by emotions while the ones (I think it's quite possibly referring to society as whole, like people turn blind eye to the problems around them, or that are too ignorant to comprehend, or something like that; but I guess he could also be referring to someone specific) around you are just effortlessly breezing through life.

    -So that's why some parts are talking about opposites, like:
    While I lie here burning (him) you're encased in ice (others)

    -With tainted eyes upon your tainted soul (the tainted soul would be because of the faults committed whether by omission, ignorance or with knowledge)

    -It's no wonder I'm so cold
    A terrible thing I'm learning as tears are turned to ice
    This are about giving up, he was "burning up" but now he is just cold, numbed

    -These four walls will be my dreaded foes
    As I rot here in this hole
    this is why I think it is about being depressed, it is really hard to get out of the house, or your room when you are feeling overwhelmed and depressed, so you stay inside, and the more you stay isolated inside the "confort" of your walls the harder it is to get out of the overwhelming feelings that led to the depression in the first place so just begin to rot in the hole you yourself dug

    -Restless seas will murder me tonight
    As you appease effortlessly the open mouths of hungry thieves
    Again this are like the opposing parts I was talking about, while he is drowning in his own thoughts, the "other" is effortlessly going through life

    -There'll be no silent empathy inside
    No colour or shades of hope
    And then maybe he is judged by the "other" for feeling too much, like people who don't believe depression is a thing, or that think that you can get out of it by summoning positive thoughts or whatever, but he knows is like that, so even though the there's no empathy to ether side he knows that for him there will still be no color or hope (he will remain overwhelmed and depressed)
