"Thin Ice" as written by and Steven Grant/burns Ludwin....
Do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do do

I've been around, oh yeah
I've been to hell and back
This is the sound, oh yeah
The sound when thin ice cracks

So please take me while im young and thin
You gotta spread my ashes thin
You gotta spread my ashes thin, thin
We'll skate beneath the stars and sing
Even though the ice was thin
Even though the ice was real thin

Look at yourself, oh yeah
You look a lot like me
Screaming for help oh yeah
We're from the same family

So please take me while I'm young and thin
You gotta spread my ashes thin
You gotts spread my ashes thin, thin
We'll skate beneath the stars and sing
Even though the ice was thin
Even though the ice was real thin

Do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do do

I've been around, oh yeah
I've been to hell and back
This is the sound, oh yeah
The sound when thin ice cracks

So please, take me while I'm young and thin
You gotta spread my ashes thin
You gotta spread my ashes thin, thin
We'll skate beneath the stars and sing
Even though the ice was thin
Even though the ice was real thin

Do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do do

    General CommentI think this is about bi-polar disorder, or mood swings. Probably with a bit of depression thrown in there, because of her whole poser-goth thing.

    "So please take me while I'm young and thin"- bi-polar or depressed people often have low self-esteem, so she's basically asking to die while she's still young and conventionally pretty so people will remember her better.

    "I've been around, oh yeah/I've been to hell and back/This is the sound, oh yeah/The sound when thin ice cracks"- she's having a breakdown because of things she's seen, done or been involved with; the thin ice cracking is a metaphor for her frail sanity cracking up, and the 'hell and back' is about what causes her breakdown.

    "You gotta spread my ashes thin, thin/We'll skate beneath the stars and sing"- Ashes being spread thin, it's clearly about cremation after death and the ashes left behind, implying she kills herself or dies from her torment. And the skating beneath the stars ties in with her "thin ice" metaphors, and a belief in some religions that after death people turn into a star.
