Lyrics

The Enemy

Written By: Diamond Lane

The Enemy

No matter how hard I’ve tried
Or how many tears we’ve cried
It’s never good enough for you
You tell me sacrifice
Well I have been crucified
So there’s no laying down for you
Hell no, no more

Cuz I’m tired of being your slave
So you can take this to your grave

Now I know you always were the enemy
Digging up the same old ground
And I know you never were a friend to me
So why you hanging around? I should I should have known
That you are my one true enemy
Never gonna push me around

For every word you’ve said
Twelve voices in my head
Same story nothing’s ever new
And now you can’t pretend It’s not the bitter end
Your toll is finally coming due
Settle the score
There’s nothing left to save
So you can take this to your grave

Kiss the Ring

Written By: Diamond Lane

You
Poison the well of life
And think we will swallow

Fool
Wave your flag
Expect us to kiss the ring

The strength of a million voices
We will never bow down

Hey hey
You try to take control
But we will overthrow
The hand that keeps us down
We’re gonna stand our ground
We will be fighting

Rule
With empty promises
Add fuel to our fire

Fear
Abuse of power
Feeds what your madness brings

And after all this, you will not decide
After all this, scarred and sacrificed
After all this, I refuse to die
After all this, I am still alive

Slow Destruction

Written By: Diamond Lane

You pretend it’s easy
Heavy is the hand
You wave

Don’t be the hero
Maybe it’s your self
You should save

Tell me, are you all better yet?
Enjoy the taste of medicine
Your slow destruction
Weighs heavy on my heart

So tell me, are you all better yet?
Your life, your love, your medicine
Alone in darkness
Shine on

Been held for ransom
Taken for your life
You will pay
The desperate calling
Shadow of the one
You betrayed

Shine on
In this state of emergency
Drowning demons in your flood
Selfish minds and weakened souls

What I Am

Written By: Diamond Lane

I am not the only one
I can't be the only one
Stuck with all these memories
They're all trapped up inside of me
They're reaching out for something
And coming up with nothing
I don't blame you for how things are
But I wonder how it got this far

I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
Take me or leave me out

Stuck inside my head again
Prison bars that never bend
Still it's not enough for me to be satisfied
I gotta get out
Pushing till the very end
I know my path is different
So save your breath
I've got no regrets

I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
Take me or leave me out

I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
I am I am not what you expect of me
I can I can be who I know how to be
I am what I am maybe
Take me or leave me out

Leave me out
I am what I am maybe

Discography

Diamond Lane - Terrorizer [May 10, 2014]

Diamond Lane - Sapphire [2013]

Diamond Lane - World Without Heroes [2011]

Diamond Lane - Save This City EP [2008]

"The last time a new(ish) band generated this much excitement in me was Holy Grail in late 2009/early 2010, and it’s safe to say that Diamond Lane are the Holy Grail of 2014. Pick up ‘Terrorizer’ and look out for this band to carry the flag for Los Angeles and American hard rock/heavy metal in the years to come." - Metal Assault

"They've got the catchy rock riffs, great melodic hooks, and the metal chops that keep them from being one dimensional, all with a modern sound that appeals to the new generation and a good old fashioned work ethic and blue collar approach that should endear them to the old guard."  -Mile High Metal

"“Terrorizer” should elevate the band’s status as a premiere Hard Rock band not just from California, but for all of the world to enjoy. It’s rare in this day and age that an independent act comes down the pike, hits me upside the head through strong songwriting and performance skills, and leaves me wondering why they remain neglected on a larger label support scale...I only hope DIAMOND LANE gain major acclaim in the coming years, for quality this good should not go unnoticed." - Metal Temple
