We are ruled by a governing frost
It melts beneath alcohol briefly
And then bites back
Breathe on panes of glass
A circle apears before freezing again
Aha
And it's taking it's time
Degree by reluctant decree
And night by night

The snow is still melting, and doesn't it take it's time?

We're ruled by a governing frost
As thin as a wedding veil
Too heavy to lift for a kiss
The kiss brings warmth
But not nearly enough to finish the thaw
And call spring from six months in clothes
This calls for bold, naked honesty
Petrol, a match and a torch

This snow is still melting and doesn't it take it's time?
To have lost almost all feeling, Jesus, didn't that take a while?

Ohh, ohhh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Well the snow may have melted but it covered all kinds of dirt
We can take one brush each, start sweeping and we'll clear this up
Well the snow may have melted, but it covered all kinds of hurt
We can take one brush each, start sweeping and we'll clear this up
Clear this up

    My InterpretationThis songs seems to be about struggling with depression. While alcohol or human contact/a kiss can push it away for a short while nothing is permanent, it bites back soon enough. The snow (depression) takes ages to melt away, you lose all feeling from it, become numb due to it.

    The last line seems to bring some hope, the idea that with help and drive you can "brush away" the depression, and while you'll find all the underlying issues and pain underneath it you can find a way to clear it away eventually.
