"Cold" as written by and Wayne R. (not Static-x)/lacey Wells....
Skin so cold
I knew you'd go away
And now I put you down to lay
Nothing to feel for you
This was our last dance

Closer and closer, it's time to surrender
To desire that you cannot mention
Don't try to breathe
Don't try to run away

But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)
But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)

With a smile I watch you go
You'll never know that I didn't cry
With a smile I saw you die
You'll never know I didn't cry

Closer and closer, it's time to surrender
To desire that you cannot mention
Don't try to breathe
Don't try to run away

But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)
But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)

No more fear
They said you were so weak
And now I put you down to lay
Nothing to feel for you
This was our last dance

Closer and closer, it's time to surrender
To desire that you cannot mention
Don't try to breathe
Don't try to run away

But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)
But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)
But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)
But I'm reaching for the sky
Won't you please stay (gonna fly)

    General CommentIt's obvious, she watched a person dying and smiled because she actually detested him and now that he's gone she is happier

    General CommentThis song is kind of full of opposition. She smiles as she watches a death, but yet says Won't you please stay. Confusing, but a good song.

    General CommentIn the verses, it sounds like a loved one is dying, and the speaker is just putting on a strong facade and numbing the pain. In the B section, they describe the futility of resisting death(or resisting something-what is 'desire that you cannot mention?') But then again, in the C section, they still insist on defying the odds. Not just to live, but to thrive. To reach for the sky and to fly.

    Maybe it's not necessarily about a literal death, but a difference of direction that pulls two people in opposite directions, although one of them wants to keep the other with them, instead of letting them go.

    General Commenti think that the song is about letting loved one go....the main point is that nothing lasts forever. it also it mite be about killin a loved one without them..u want them to stay but u also want them to go

    General CommentI think this deals with someone leaving a loved one and trying to convince themselves that they don't have anymore feelings even though it's obvious they do
