As I climb through dirt and mud
I'm sinking under
In a grave of life that was
I saw a light

I turned my back on everything
I search for half-remembered dreams
Pulling me down with you
Above my head, they're circling
The vultures want what's left of me
I sacrificed it all and I will fight

Until the world goes cold
This battle's burned all that I've known
Until the world goes cold
Nothing will keep me from this throne, I'll fight
Until the world goes cold
Until the world goes cold

As I build my house of bones
You're sinking under
For all your sins, you will atone
I burned it down

I turned my back on everything
I search for half-remembered dreams
Pulling me down with you
(I burned it down)
Above my head, they're circling
The vultures want what's left of me
I sacrificed it all and I will fight

Until the world goes cold
This battle's burned all that I've known
Until the world goes cold
Nothing will keep me from this throne, I'll fight
Until the world goes cold

This battle has burned all
I'll fight forevermore

Until the world goes cold
This battle's burned all that I've known

Until the world goes cold
This battle's burned all that I've known
Until the world goes cold
Nothing will keep me from this throne, I'll fight
Until the world goes cold
Until the world goes cold

Until the world goes cold

    My InterpretationThe song, in my opinion, is essentially about someone who was either very well known to a lot of people, but due to some unfortunate circumstances, ended up either dying, or falling far from grace and now lives as a recluse. However, after a long stretch of time, something overcomes him and pushes him to "come back to life", and reclaim the position of power, notoriety, or respect that kept him going. He wishes to take this path, no matter how much hardship is in his way, as he can't go on living the way he is now. It wasn't an easy road, or one that anyone helped him travel, but he kept his focus on the light at the end of the tunnel and made it back in even better form to the position that made him great. He was willing to fight to the death for his goals, or "until the world goes cold".
