So cold, in the night,
Where the river flows,
Where the river flows,
So cold, in the night,
Where the river flows,
Where the river flows,
Sail away,
Hey, I’m sorry,
Everyday is a new day.
Hooray for love,
Hey, I’m lonely,
Trying to find a new way.
So cold, in the night,
Where the rivers slow,
Say the rivers slows,
So cold, in the night,
Where the rivers slow,
Say the rivers slows,
So cold…
Connect!
So cold, in the night,
Hold on…
Hold on…
So cold, in the night,
Hold on…
Hold on…
Sail away,
Hey I’m sorry,
Every day’s a new day,
Hooray for love.
Hey I’m lonely
Try and be on your way,
On your way...
On your way...

She loves me not…

[Narrator:]
Having made their way through space, Captain Spectacular and his intrepid crew have arrived in nebulo 9.
Unbeknownst to the humans, Ziltoid has also arrived

[Ziltoid:] Haha! Surprise!

    General CommentThe song deals with the randomness of life and the love and lonliness that it can bring. The hyperdrive is set up on a path that goes through cold and warm. Good and bad aspects of life.

    General CommentCaptain Spectacular jumped into Hyperdrive in order to reach Nebulo 9 to expose Ziltoid as a nerd.

    General Commentim pretty sure its when she says "where the rivers slows, say the rivers slow" to me it sounds like its saying "where the rivers low, when the rivers low" also this song kicks ass

    General CommentIn Ziltoid it's "Hey I'm only trying the alien way" at the second hooray for love, and it's also "so cold, in the night, with a river song, sing a river song" but it's different in the Addicted version

    Song ComparisonThere's a difference in lyrics between the two versions of this song which may speak to a personal relationship he has with a significant other or how those relationships are so fragile and volatile.

    The line is "She loves me" in Addicted and "She loves me not" in Ziltoid.

    General CommentSo cold? Obviously about heroin withdrawal because we all know Devin Townsend is a heroin addict.
    Basically, the entire song is yelling at God for giving up on the world and like, why should we like, believe in God? And stuff? You know?
    It's also about finding a new way away from the awful record label he was in.
    It's also clearly an anti-war song.
    Even amongst all the anti-war activism and struggling with faith, Captain Spectacular is still overwhelmed by lovesickness, and, like. I don't even know, man. Like, the lyrics, man, is like, whoah.
