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

Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom

Wait, wait a minute take a step back,
Gotta think twice before you react.
So stay, stay a little while cause a promise
Not kept is the road to exile
Hey, what's 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 should've been gone.

(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
One push is all you need
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
This is 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, 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 see the world through diamond eyes

Damn, damn it all down
Took one to the chest without even a sound
So, what, what do you want
The things you love or the people you hurt
Hey, it's like deja vu suicidal maniac with nothing to lose
So wait, it's the exception to the rule
Everyone of us is expendable

(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
One push is all you need
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
This is 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, 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 regrets
And now I see the world through
Diamond Eyes

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

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 regrets
And now I see the world through diamond eyes

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
(The story is just beginning)
I say goodbye to my weakness,
So long to the regrets
And now I see the world through
Diamond eyes

Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom, Boom-lay boom-lay, boom

    A military man who has been hardened by war. Nothing bothers him now. He came close to dying, but is no longer worried about anything. Chief rodge... Out.

    A guy who wants to make a name for himself! He has to earn everything before he can be someone. He has to take big chances and overcome his weakness in order to achieve the ultimate prize... Greatness!

    Epic song!!!

    Its about the singer, me, and all people with music in their hearts, while all the haters try to take us down, like ghosts in the night, because they are all suicidal maniacs with nothing to lose!!! Look to the seven dealdly sins! Look out for those who live outside of nature

    Diamond eyes is about seeing the world through a different light. Once you see something you don't want to--like war-- it changes your perspective.
