I watch the danger zone, for sign of life but not a soul alive
Try every trick I know, 2 keep my temperature from blowing sky high
Check on the time to go, I lay my spirit down to fantasize
This place disembark disconnect possibilities unknown
On the edge of a heading for heavy weather
I suspect I can tell I can feel it in my bones
All not well but you never, never, never will know
(Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold (Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold
(Cold and it’s dark) I feel the chill is all around me baby
(Cold and it’s dark) It’s like a space in my heart
(Cold and it’s dark) It’s cold and it’s dark and yesterday

Glamorama all around me, friendly natives turning back to brown
I keep my shades well down
They cannot penetrate what can't be found
Feel the fever start to rise, slip away in indiscreet disguise
How can a man survive when the weak meet the soft
And the heat blinds your eyes
Left to right up and down then it's picture postcard time
Hear the sounds save the image in my mind

(Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold (Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold
(Cold and it’s dark) I feel the chill is all around me baby
(Cold and it’s dark) It’s like a space in my heart, it’s cold
(It’s cold and it’s dark and yesterday)

(Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold (Cold and it’s dark) I’m feelin’ cold
(Cold and it’s dark) I feel the chill is all around me baby
(Cold and it’s dark) It’s like a space in my heart
(Cold and it’s dark) It’s cold and it’s dark and yesterday, yeah
Disembark disconnect possibilities unknown
From the edge of a heading for heavy weather
(Cold and it’s dark) (Oh ah ah)
Left to right up and down then it's picture postcard time
(Cold and it’s dark) Hear the sounds (Oh ah ah)
Save the image in my mind (Cold and it’s dark) (Oh ah ah)
When the wind creeping south when like young man’s survived
Feel the fever start to rise, when you’re standing all around
(Oh ah ah) (Cold)
I suspect I can tell I can feel it in my bones (Oh ah ah)
All not well but you never, never
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never
(Cold and it’s dark) (Oh ah ah)
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never
(Cold) Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never
(Cold and it’s dark) (Oh ah ah) (Cold) (Oh oh oh oh)
(Cold and it’s dark) (Oh ah ah) (Cold) (Cold and it’s dark)
