Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
Do you ever get the feeling that you're missing the mark?
It's so cold, so cold,
It's so cold, so cold

Written up in marker on a factory sign
I struggle with the feeling that my life isn't mine
It's so cold, so cold,
It's so cold, so cold

See the arrow that they shot,
Trying to tear us apart took the fire from my belly
And the beat from my heart
Still I won't let go, still I won't let go

You, yes, you do
Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

On every street, every car, every surface are names
And now the streets arise and we're writing the same
Don't let them take control
No, we won't let them take control

Yes, I feel a little bit nervous
Yes, I feel nervous and I cannot relax
How come they're out to get us?
How come they're out when they don't know the facts?

So on a concrete canvas under cover of dark
On a concrete canvas I go making my mark
Armed with the spray can soul
I'll be armed with the spray can soul

You, oh you 'cause you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven
Whoa, whoa, it's true
When you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven and it hurts like heaven

    I think that this song is about how breakups are really hard and you feel "so cold" in the process. And when you are in the process you just wanna go and try and forget by being a little wild. "writing graffiti in the park" "don't let em' take control". When someone breaks your heart it really is as if they use their heart as a weapon. But some people are kinda weird and like the hurt. But most people don't.

    Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park:
    'do you ever get the feeling you're missing the mark? '
    It's so cold, it's so cold
    It's so cold, it's so cold

    Written up in marker on a factory sign:
    'i struggle with the feeling that my life isn't mine'
    It's so cold, it's so cold
    It's so cold, it's so cold

    See the arrow they shot trying to tear us apart
    Take the fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
    Still i won't let go, still i won't let go
    Of you

    Cos you do
    Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
    And it hurts like heaven

    On every street, every car, every surface: a name
    Tonight the streets are ours, and we're writing and saying
    'don't let 'em take control! '
    'no, we won't let 'em take control! '

    Yes, i feel a little bit nervous
    Yes, i feel nervous and i cannot relax
    How come they're out to get us?
    How come they're out when they don't know the facts?

    So on a concrete canvas under cover of dark
    On a concrete canvas, i'll go making my mark
    Armed with a spray-can soul
    I'll be armed with a spray-can soul
    You

    Oh you
    Cos you, use your heart as a weapon
    And it hurts like heaven

    Woah-oh, woah-oh
    Yet it's true, when you use your heart as a weapon
    Then it hurts like heaven
