lyrics

Verse 1:

Cold and Calm
You’d even blind the weak
Cold and Calm
You’d even mute the meek

Verse 2:

Smug
You just smile
Shrug
In denial
Smite
To the mind
Trite
You’re to kind

Verse 3:

Snared
In your trap
Paired
With the scrap
Scared
To react
Squared
...and then cracked

Chorus 1:

Cold and Calm
You live for the deceit
Cold and Calm
You nod, you smile, you cheat

Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Face to face is not the place to hide.
Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Face to face you’re not the guy that’s wise.

Chorus 2:

Cold and Calm
Hide behind the screen
Cold and Calm
Frustrate into routine

Cold and Calm
Manipulating trust
Cold and Calm
Thrown right under the bus

Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Well oh well, you want to be allies.
Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
I am not the least of bit surprised.

“Is there any reason you feel you need to be such an annoying manipulative asshole!? I mean, really!? You must have a mental disorder to want to be that mentally combative all the time!”
