SHINEDOWN


Diamond Eyes Lyrics

(INTRO)
I am the shadow, and the smoke in your eyes,
I am the ghost, that hides in the night

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM! (x4)

(VERSE)
Wait, wait a minute take a step back
you gotta think twice before you react
so stay, stay a little while
because the promise I kept is the road to exile
HEY! whats the circumstance
you'll never be great without taking a chance so
wait, you waited too long
had your hands in your pocket
when you shoulda been gone

(CHORUS)
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
One push is all you'll need
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Fist first philosophy
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
We watch with wounded eyes
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
So I hope you recognize
Out on the front line
dont worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes

(VERSE)
DAMN! damn it all down
took one to the chest without even a sound so
WHAT! what are you worth
the things you love or the people you hurt
HEY! it's like deja vu
a suicidal maniac with nothing to lose
so wait, it's the exception to the rule
every one of us in EXPENDABLE*

(CHORUS)
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
One push is all you'll need
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Fist first a philosophy
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!

We watch with wounded eyes
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
So I hope you recognize

(HOOK)
Out on the front line
don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I know that I'm alive
Out on the front line
don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes

(BRIDGE)
Every night of my life
I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don't take mine
[*Guitar Solo*]

I'm on the front line
don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to regrets

Out on the front line
don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regrets
and now I know that I'm alive

Out on the front line
don't worry I'll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes
(REPEAT x2)

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
(REPEAT x8)

Im an active duty army infantryman, I've deployed and fought 5 different times and now I'm fighting a type of bone marrow cancer, so this song speaks to my experiences and motivates me 2 keep fighting

I love how most of their songs have a meaning. Like this is about the war at least that is what it reads as in a way.
