hate in cold blue patience not a virtue - blood for every sin - hate is my weapon - power is - a game for cowards - i smell your kind for miles i see you behind that badge - see it's a joke for me - three years in a hole for me - served everyday laughing at all of you - trust is a knife in the back - trust is a bullet through the head - you're under my skin but i can carve you out - like a parasite i can carve you out it burns in cold blue

    General Commentgod damn great lyrics and very heavy, emotional song. my favorite off of cold blue, its about someone who has been stabbed in the back by those he's trusted so many times, that he thinks it will happen to everyone else and he isnt gonna do anything about it, and he wont let anyone else get near him, ehh im probably wrong but anyways great song

    General Commentits funny that you just commented on this - im listening to it. great song. I agree with your viewpoint on the being stabbed in the back.. he doesn't want to let it get to him too much.. so he's just going to take them out of his life.. 'but i can carve you out / like a parasite i can carve you out'

    General Commentwell i am not sure what the song is about. but it seems like it relates to police and prison as well as trust. "behind that badge" and "served every day" sounds as if he was arrested for something and was in prison (the hole) for 3 years? i really dont know but thats just the impression i get from the song. great song by the way.

    General CommentI agree with bryanvincent. the most obvious meaning would be police..possibly police brutality? (patience not a virtue) he's talking about how police are cowards but they feel powerful behind a badge and a gun. Maybe he fucked up an officer (see its a joke for me, 3 years in the hole for me served everyday laughing at all of you). You are supposed to be able to trust police, but some are just bad cops (trust is a knife in the back trust is a bullet through the head)

    General CommentWith a cursory glance, it appears to be taking a "jab" at the "reformatory" state of the US prison system, and anything akin to it. After all, locking someone up and heaping abuse is bound to reform their nature and reacclimate them, right? Ha! However, Baker may very well be referencing the mundane elements of skull-drudgery that each of us face with those who hold sway over various facets of our lives ( Be it the high-minded bureucrat in the office, or a narrowminded authority figure at your educational institute, et cetera). "Served everyday laughing at all of you". Surely, if I "bit the bullet" in my formative years, I would've had that carved on my tombstone.
