Cold World
(E.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 the 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
