Stone Cold took us a long time to write, with many structural and lyrical revisions. The whole process took probably several months off and on. Tweaking with the lyrics went on through the actual recording at the East West Studios.
The song’s structure is unusual: it has a very slow opening supported by Hammond and ambient noises only, all the way through the second verse where drums kick in, and full force only in the second chorus.
This song is about a personal journey. A journey of someone who is not quite sure where and how to find the support to go forward. There are existential thoughts. You know, like the feeling you sometimes have that the ground beneath you starts to give way, and you don't know if you'll be able to push on. I think this song evokes the feelings of angst, anxiety--but resolving into a stronger you. There’s introspection, triumph, healing, partnership, peace, gratitude, and rebirth. ~ Vee Bordukov, co-writer/ co-producer
