Cold World
(music and lyrics by Elisabeth J. Geel)
So here’s where the heartless hold their conventions
Here is where they devise their strategies
I watch them roll their eyes and drink their bloody lies on ice
A toast to my defeat
To their own greed
Christmas carols call for a day of kindness
The jingle bells have cast their yearly spell on everyone
A charming lady leads you to your table with a smile
And says she's there for you
Well, she is lying too
It’s a cold, cold, cold, cold world
Can you feel it in the air?
It’s a cold, cold, cold, cold
It’s a cold world where people don’t care
Integrity, honesty are the highest values
But what goes on behind the scenes they’ll never tell you
And you won't suspect a thing until the circumstances bring
You lower than the ground
And you find yourself around
The lost, the lonely, and the languid
The hostages that swarm the underground corridors
Captives of the kings and queens that jump from planes and
limousines
With the same grace and skill
That they deploy to kill
It’s a cold, cold, cold, cold world
Can you feel it in the air?
It’s a cold, cold, cold, cold
It’s a cold world where people don’t care
They bask in the glow of each other’s power
But they’re as fragile as the chandeliers above their heads
Without nuts and bolts and straps this crystal tower would
collapse
And they would not survive
Because they only thrive
In a cold, cold, cold, cold world
Can you feel it in the air?
It’s a cold, cold, cold, cold
It’s a cold world where people don’t care
