Subconsciousness been splayed on cankered brains
We get along and their very boones decay
Try to find what little else remain
My heart still beating but I'm feeling so restrained

You try to make a living by using what you got
But the way that it's been going
Well you gonna get shot
He's an old cold hand

Missfortune passed down from long times ago
Been rendered senseless in a temple made of gold
I heard you're really out here all alone
I'm stuck in limbo and you're perched atop a throne

You try to make a living by using what you got
But the way that it's been going
Well you better run fast
He's an old cold hand

Subconsciousness been splayed on cankered brains
We get along and their very boones decay
Try to find what little else remain
My heart still beating but I'm feeling so restrained

You try to make a living by using what you got
But the way that it's been going
Well you gonna get shot
He's an old cold hand

You try to make a living by using what you got
But the way that it's been going
Well you better run fast
He's an old cold hand
He's an old cold hand
He's an old cold hand

    General Commentwhoever the song is written about is trying to hide from some reality that lies in their subconscience. usually the things in your subconscience tell a great deal about who one REALLY is. You can't run away from the truth. you especially cant hide it from the person who wrote the song. The guy who wrote it has accepted who he is, and ultimately has figured out what his subconscious knows. he is in on the secret ahha. so, he is kinda just saying,life is easier to live when you accept the truth about yourself. JUST BE YOURSELF. chill out, enjoy life. its fun if you let it be.
