Ice cold
Heart stone
You want fresh meat, but I won’t eat it
You can’t touch me, your inside’s ugly

It’s a slap in the face
But you gave it away
You give in to fame

Then you found yourself high
And you’re gonna feel low
And you find yourself colder than the winter
Can’t bare to be alone
Faded man

Ice cold
Bare bones
You take flesh and you take aspirine
Glad I faked it, ‘cause now it’s ended

‘Cause you found yourself high
Now you’re going below
When your throat becomes dry
And you wanna go home
Faded man

But the airports are closed
And your credit card knows
Your honesty’s left back on the runway
Screaming for the phone
It’s the fading of a man

Like a slap in the face
But you gave it away
You gave in to fame

Then you found yourself high
And you’re gonna feel low
And you find yourself colder than the winter
Melting like the snow
Faded man

Find yourself high
Now you’re going below
And your faces are changing like the seasons
Breaking like a bone
It’s the fading of a man
