Breaking Benjamin So Cold Lyrics

Last updated: 06/03/2012 03:08:38 AM

Crowded streets are cleared away
One by one
Hollow heroes separate
As they run

You're so cold
Keep your hand in mine
Wise men wonder while strong men die

Show me how it ends, it's alright
Show me how defenseless you really are
Satisfied and empty inside
Well that's alright
Let's give this another try

If you find your family
Don't you cry
In this land of make believe
Dead and dry
You're so cold
but you feel alive
Lay your hand on me
One last time

Show me how it ends, It's alright
Show me how defenseless you really are
Satisfied and empty inside
Well that's alright
Let's give this another try

Show me how it ends, It's alright
Show me how defenseless you really are
Satisfied and empty inside
Well that's alright
Let's give this another try

Its alright (x9)

Meanings... | Reviewer: VICE | 12/17/11

I saw an interview on VH1 about this song with Benjamin. He stated that it was about his (Go Figure) Drug addiction, and how people who are supposed to be your friends and helping you out of your addiction are really just helpless themselves, and can only give you advice.

The song is very popular in the Gaming Community and is used in Machinima (Game) Videos because of the reference to finding your family "Dead & Dry in this land of make believe" (The Game World(S) where many bonds (Clans) and friendships are made. The first and most popular Machinima entitled "I'm Still Seeing Breen" can be seen on YouTube and features in game clips from the Computer Game "Half-Life 2"

"STALKER: Mad World" is another good Machinima using the Mad World song from the Donnie Darko movie.


LOVE THEM!!! | Reviewer: Rebecca | 9/13/10

This song(so cold) rocks,I just love it.the first time I heard this song it was like,WoW, this is grat i've got to know the name of it. I've never seen the vido ,but if it's as sarry as you say thin i'll pass.But Grate song.

Apocalyptic, dark, powerful and just a totally awesome song!! | Reviewer: amorailuv | 8/25/10

Even though I love alternative and symphonic metal such as Nightwish, it took me a while to get used to this song. But after a few days, I started loving it to pieces and I still do. I can only describe the mood as very apocalyptic, dismal and "this is the end," which only makes it all the more powerful. I love the lyrics, especially the chorus. Such an amazing song. To me, it means something like "The end is coming, and there is so little of you left, but hold onto me because you're all I have."

LOVE IT!!!!!!!

effing amazing song | Reviewer: Calmeister | 6/23/10

The song's feel is based on the film '28 days later' (confirmed by Ben) and the video is indeed about a man accused of infidelity (punishable by death) the woman in white robes is the one he cheated with and the woman in black robes is his wife. The large wooden block he is carrying bears the BB Celtic Knot emblem. This is one of their best songs to date, (as Phobia is about his fear of flying, and Dear Agony is devoted to his grandad - that was why it was a year late) and i hope they make a similar song again.

Alright... | Reviewer: StanJ | 4/26/10

The music video is NOT about a man being accused of witchcraft or anything like that, it's about a man committing infidelity towards his wife- or in other words, cheating on her- and being punished for it by death.

AWESOME SONG & BAND!!! | Reviewer: AustinCG | 3/31/10

love it! BB always has great songs, my fav part was in the end when they were playing that guitar solo and the guy walked into the swamp, and why wee people such dumb***** back then? witchcraft? really? the dude looked like a normal guy having to carry his own tombstone

shear the nerves | Reviewer: shuv | 10/7/09

this song is just the one which get into the nerves , awesome drum playing with the guitars , Bernley is always my favourite . Polyamorous rocked my room , so as this song . Video is so cold too . Cheers to Breaking Benjamin . They rock.

Meaning of lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/09

well, if you can see the music video. a guy gets punnished for beeing a witch, and that's why he has the rock atached to him. And if he float, hes a witch, and if he drowned, he died in the name of god. sick shit if u ask me what they did before, but the song is awesome:)

gr8 | Reviewer: anton | 5/11/09

I heard this song on the radio first. The somewhat sombre heavy tune it started with was what drew me to the speaker then i heard the vocals and damn! i had to get the CD. Gr8 work of art BB if i say so myself

breaking benjamin is not an emo band | Reviewer: Amanda | 3/26/09

This song isnt emo...the video shows how this guy is getting punished for something he did, and the little girl gets lost in the swamp. They really did punish people like that a long time ago...if they were sentenced to death.
And if you watch the video(which is amazing btw) the stone that the guy is carrying has the symbols from one of their albums.

They Rock | Reviewer: Brandon | 11/22/07

Breaking Benjamin is probably one of the best bands ive heard in a while. All of their stuff ive listened to so far kick ass! Also they are GREAT live. This band is awesome and so is this song (so cold). Rock on BB lovers!! Rock on!!

Alright, I don't know what to say but.. I LOVE THIS SONG! and I LOVE BB! Seriously.. The first song I heard for -Diary of Jane- And fell in love with it. So I got the CD and fell in love with all the songs! Can't really pick, since they are all so awesome. I've learned how to play -Until the end- On guitar. I am so excited! Will learn the rest too!
