►What’s in the Playlist: So Cold by Breaking Benjamin

Posted by Mercenary Spark on July 12, 2008

To end Breaking Benjamin week, I’m adding So Cold, one of the band’s best singles, to the playlist. The sound is good. The meaning of the lyrics is about a catastrophe occuring and 2 lovers spending their last minutes together. Ben Burley (the band’s singer) stated that they were inspired by the movie 28 Days Later (about a rage virus that causes an outbreak in England). The video instead shows a man carrying a big, heavy stone (chained to his hands) in a forest, while a group of people (wearing 19th century clothing) follow. They end up in a swamp with a preacher where the man falls one last time (from the weight) and drowns.

Rating: 8/10 – A good alternative rock song. The song is available In the Corner.

Lyrics and Video:
Crowded streets all 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
Satisfy an empty inside
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 hands on me one last time

Show me how it ends, it’s alright
Show me how defenseless you really are
Satisfy an empty inside
That’s alright, let’s give this another try

Show me how it ends, it’s alright
Show me how defenseless you really are
Satisfy an empty inside
That’s alright, let’s give this another try

It’s alright. [x9]
