I don't know how to live through this hell
Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
Break the ice, I can't take anymore

Freezing, can't move at all
Screaming, can't hear my call
I, am dying to live
Cry out, I'm trapped under ice

Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
Eyes of glass stare directly at death
From deep sleep I have broken away
No one knows, no one hears what I say

Freezing, can't move at all
Screaming, can't hear my call
I, am dying to live
Cry out, I'm trapped under ice

Scream from my soul
Fate, mystified
Hell, forever more

Scream from my soul
Fate, mystified
Hell, forever more

No release from my cryonic state
What is this? I've been stricken by fate
Wrapped up tight, can't move, can't break free
Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

Freezing, can't move at all
Screaming, can't hear my call
I, am dying to live
Cry out, I'm trapped under ice

Freezing, can't move at all
Screaming, can't hear my call
I, am dying to live
Cry out, I'm trapped under ice

    General CommentTo me it sounds like it's about being stuck in a situation you can't handle and that you want to make it better (dying to live) but you see no way out (trapped under ice).
    And the part about "No one knows, no one hears what I say " and "screaming, can't hear my call" appears to me as if no one cares for the person anymore, or at least it seems so to that person

    General CommentIt's about how terribly painful it feels to be a solem loner. He's trapped behind his inability to be with people, yet he yearns to be "normal".

    General CommentIt could be about someone burnt-out on drugs, at least that's what was suggested on the site I was on

    General Commenti think it's all about inner pain. you can't get out of your misery (trapped under ice, can't move at all) and no one really realizes your bad state of mind (screaming - can't hear my call)

    General CommentI don't remember where, but I recall it being about drowning as Debbie65 said. Another song about death on that album.

    General CommentMy first impression was that it was about being cyrogenically frozen, but it's probably about some inner pain or something or other, kick ass song though.
