COLD VISIONS
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I have always felt a few steps outside of myself
A few seconds too late
Knowing but unable to formulate
Too vain, too lame
To aim, to chase
Having but unable to have
Collecting the sand
To try and restore the stone
The vision is clear
But I'm nowhere near
Carrying something that's too heavy to bear
But wanting it near
And holding it dear
Is it out of fear?
Cold Visions

Cold winter flowers under snow is it still living?
Cold Vision
Yes, yes, all alone
Summers indefinitely postponed
I hope I'll hope
I hope I won't be buried under this snow
All this snow, so cold, so cold
Nowhere to go
Flowers lying down dormant for long
Torment that has made them strong
Spring comes, they'll grow
They know (they know)
Feather in the wind sinks like a stone
When the winds finally gone
But the place is not the point
Two sides of the same coin
I don't care but I care
I'm challenged by nothing
I'm asking for suffering
I'm asking for it
I don't care but I care
What is this sick justice?
Our flesh turn to plastic
The rest is history

Yellow leaves in a black puddle
Smell of the winter soon coming
The threat of nothing
I'm scared of nothing
I want something
Say something
Just tell me something (let's wish for something)
Anything
I know I said I'd do anything (let's skip assumptions)
And you never thought I would lie (let's think, let's sing)
Neither did I (won't you let the love in?)
Let's wish for something
Let's skip assumptions
Let's think, let's sing
Won't you let the love in
God is love is my




Love
Cold

Overall Meaning

In the first verse of the song "COLD VISIONS," Bladee expresses a sense of detachment and disconnection from himself. He feels like he is always a few steps behind, unable to fully grasp or articulate his thoughts and desires. The lyrics convey a feeling of inadequacy and self-doubt, as Bladee struggles with his own limitations and insecurities. He talks about wanting something that feels out of reach, something that is heavy and burdensome to carry, yet he still holds onto it dearly, possibly out of fear or a sense of longing.


The chorus of the song, with the repeated phrase "Cold Visions," sets the tone for a theme of isolation and coldness that runs throughout the lyrics. Bladee reflects on the idea of life continuing under harsh conditions, such as cold winter weather and being alone. He contemplates the postponement of better times, hoping that he won't be buried under the weight of his struggles. The imagery of dormant flowers waiting to bloom in the spring symbolizes resilience and the endurance of hardship, suggesting that growth and renewal can come after suffering.


The second verse delves deeper into Bladee's inner turmoil and conflicting emotions. He grapples with the duality of his feelings, caring and not caring at the same time. There is a sense of nihilism and a resignation to the inevitability of suffering. Bladee questions the nature of justice and the decay of the physical body, as he reflects on the impermanence and fragility of human existence. The lyrics evoke a sense of disillusionment with the world and a yearning for something more meaningful or transcendent amidst the chaos and uncertainty.


The final verse brings a sense of longing and yearning for connection and understanding. Bladee expresses a fear of emptiness and a desire for something to hold onto or believe in. He pleads for communication and honesty, expressing a willingness to open up to love and vulnerability. The mention of God and love amidst the coldness and desolation suggests a glimmer of hope or faith in something greater than the struggles and hardships of life. The song ends on a poignant note, with a plea to let love in and find warmth and solace in a world that often feels cold and unforgiving.


Line by Line Meaning

I have always felt a few steps outside of myself
I've often felt disconnected from who I am


A few seconds too late
Slightly delayed in understanding


Knowing but unable to formulate
Aware, yet struggling to express


Too vain, too lame
Excessively proud, yet inadequate


To aim, to chase
To have goals, to pursue them


Having but unable to have
Possessing, but unable to acquire


Collecting the sand
Gathering fragments


To try and restore the stone
Attempting to rebuild the original


The vision is clear
The goal is apparent


But I'm nowhere near
Yet, I remain far from it


Carrying something that's too heavy to bear
Hold on to a burden too great


But wanting it near
Yet desiring its closeness


And holding it dear
Admiring it with affection


Is it out of fear?
Could it be due to fear?


Cold Visions
Chilling images


Cold winter flowers under snow is it still living?
Are the frozen flowers still alive?


Yes, yes, all alone
Indeed, truly isolated


Summers indefinitely postponed
Endless delay of sunny days


I hope I'll hope
I wish to have hope


I hope I won't be buried under this snow
I pray not to be covered by snow


All this snow, so cold, so cold
The frigid snow all around


Nowhere to go
No destination in sight


Flowers lying down dormant for long
Flowers resting, waiting


Torment that has made them strong
Suffering that has toughened them


Spring comes, they'll grow
When spring arrives, they'll flourish


Feather in the wind sinks like a stone
Light object dropping heavily


When the winds finally gone
Once the breeze subsides


But the place is not the point
The location isn't significant


Two sides of the same coin
Opposite facets of one issue


I don't care but I care
Indifferent yet concerned


I'm challenged by nothing
Not facing any obstacles


I'm asking for suffering
Seeking hardship


I'm asking for it
Intentionally requesting it


What is this sick justice?
Why this twisted fairness?


Our flesh turn to plastic
Our bodies becoming artificial


The rest is history
The remainder is past


Yellow leaves in a black puddle
Golden foliage in a dark pool


Smell of the winter soon coming
Scent of the approaching cold season


The threat of nothing
The danger of emptiness


I'm scared of nothing
Fearful of the void


I want something
Longing for substance


Say something
Speak up


Just tell me something (let's wish for something)
Provide some information (let's desire change)


Anything
Any response


I know I said I'd do anything (let's skip assumptions)
I promised to comply (let's refrain from guessing)


And you never thought I would lie (let's think, let's sing)
You didn't anticipate my deceit (let's reflect, let's express)


Neither did I (won't you let the love in?)
Nor did I (won't you welcome affection?)


Let's wish for something
Let's hope for a change


Let's skip assumptions
Avoid presumptions


Let's think, let's sing
Let's contemplate, let's create music


Won't you let the love in
Why not allow love into your life?


God is love is my
Love is divine in me


Love
Affection


Cold
Chilly
