  • I'd like to close my eyes and go numb
    But there's a cold wind coming from
    The top of the highest high rise today

    It's not a breeze ?cause it blows hard
    Yes and it wants me to discard the humanity I know
    Watch the warmth blow away

    Do you think I should adhere
    To that pressing new frontier
    And leave in my wake a trail of fear?

    Or should I hold my head up high
    And throw a wrench in spokes by
    Leaving the air behind me clear?

    Don't let the world bring you down
    Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold

    Remember why you came and while you're alive
    Experience the warmth before you grow old Writer/s: ALEX KATUNICH, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, JOSE ANTHONY II PASILLAS, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER

  • Evan from Reading, Pathis songs about not worrying about dumb things in the world that bring you down, and to focus on the good in life.

    VVV and a kid from phoenixville WOULD be blazed haha, im not far from there
  • Robert from Houston , Txi have to agree with josh warmth is good song to blaze to but aqueous transmisson it like ten times better
  • Jeff from Casa Grande, Azthis song is about strength/courage against the "cold wind" of living in the "hard/tough city. As Roger Waters said years earlier, "don't be afraid to care." Pink Floyd, the Dark Side of the Moon by the way.
  • Josh from New York, Nybrian trust me aqueous transmission is much, much better high, not that this isn't good, but aqueous is on an entirely different level
  • Brian Keller from Phoenixville, Pai love this song when im blazed
  • Poop from Poopville, Mowhy do u have to be so gay... Jo-C didnt say Boyd was the best he said he was good and u have to be all "well ive seen better". If ur gonna talk about whos better than please explain urself. Anyways awesome song... but I bet theres a lot better right Dale Earnheart.
