​The Cold Burn

This song is by Shock Therapy and appears on the album The Great Confuser (1991).

I want it to happen more and more
As the living collapses into lethal hunger
Its in my heart and its in my mind
It's a fatal mistake but it will burnaway

I need it to happen more and more
Like so many addictions I can use for excuses
I could fall to the floor and cry for another
But that didn't help Christ and it won't help me

Like a cold burn where all hope is shattered
And I'm drowning in the sweat
And I'm freezing from the fear of what I cannot get
Its just another excuse to take another breath

The cold burn of madness
The cold burn of stupid excuse
The cold burn in the back of my brain
The cold burn commands
A high price for indulgent mistakes

It will never happen again ever again
Like a determined thought there is not quite enough
When you've got all the time in the back of my mind
In my fractured heart and my broken back

Like a cold burn where all hope is shattered
And I'm drowning in the sweat
And I'm freezing from the fear of what I cannot get
Its just another excuse to take another breath

The cold burn of madness
The cold burn of stupid excuse
The cold burn in the back of my brain
The cold burn commands
A high price for indulgent mistakes
