Trapped Under Ice Lyrics

I don't know how to live through this hell
Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
Break the ice, I can't take anymore

[chorus:]
Freezing
Can't move at all
Screaming
Can't hear my call
I, I'm dying...

    This song is, literally, about being trapped under ice.

    I do think it's about sleep paralysis. I have it myself. Many of the things they talk about make perfect sense for this interpretation. "Waking up", they're talk of waking up in this hell. People either have sleep paralysis waking up, or when falling asleep. Also, when they say they are rapped up tight and cannot move, that is another symptom of sleep paralysis. Also, "can't hear my call" makes sense for sleep paralysis too because those experienceing sleep paralysis cannot speak or talk. And lastly they talk about being "at rest" which also aligns with having sleep paralysis. Just an interesting perspective I think.

    I think it's about death and waking up in the second life only to find yourself trapped and frozen in your body holding cell ,

    Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
    Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
    Break the ice, I can't take anymore...

    Then only to waken after death and your lock in this hell

    Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
    Eyes of glass stare directly at death
    From deep sleep I have broken away
    No one knows, no one hears what I say

    Then only to realize that no escape and now this is your second life in hell.....


    No release from my cryonic state
    What is this? I've been stricken by fate
    Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
    Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

    It is about how they could never get to #1 on the charts because Vanilla Ice had that spot

    It could be about waking up in sleep paralysis.

    Social anxiety. Immobilized due cold of the world. Unable to break the ice. Unable to connect.

    Metallica is singing about how the bad times have become so horrible that it feels like they are trapped in ice. Deep, down it's so cold and hellish but it has encased them in it. They try to break free, but can't. They don't know if they can live life anymore. Lost in the abyss of what is seemingly hell, it hurts them to live. Metallica has become so cold and their soul has become numb because of all the rough things they been exposed to.
