"Cold as Ice" is a very simple song based on a guitar loop Lockett made. It's just a snapshot. The meaning is not really significant.

Sometimes, for no reason-- she was really involved with drugs later on when we grew up-- she would invite me back there to watch her change in this room, and it was cold as ice. She'd be like, "Go back there and wait for me." It's like this weird mental game she played with me. I don't know. She was trying to torture me or something. She ended up marrying a cop. -Bradford Cox
