"Cold Arms" as written by Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall, Edward James Milton Dwane, Benjamin Walter David Lovett and Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford....
Weekend wreckers take the streets
With abandon in their eyes
But in our bedroom we're bloodshot and beat
And never so alive

And I know what's on your mind
God knows I put it there
But if I took it back
Well you'd be nowhere
You'd be nowhere again

Now look at you all torn up
I left you waiting to bleed
I guess the truth works two ways
Maybe the truth's not what we need

And I know what's on your mind
God knows I put it there
But if I took it back
Well you'd be nowhere
You'd be nowhere again

But in my cold arms
You don't sleep
In my cold arms
Your fear beats
In my cold arms
You stay

    My InterpretationIt seems this song is a story between someone who destroyed another's life sexually, but who had no life before this anyway. As if, the narrator, a pimp, brought a prostitute into his life, and has treated her poorly, but, in the balance, has given her means of living. He knows what's on her mind, him, the terror. But he and she both know if he took it back, if he left her, she'd be back where she started, no where. In his cold arms she can't sleep, in his cold arms her fear beats, but in his cold arms, she stays.
