From the gutter
The diamond seemed far too bright to see,
The gleaming eyes always tend to turn away,
Just turn away,
And every innocent wish, has granted tragedy,
And our hands have since been soiled in the blackest of coal

Most days I'd sit and wish for,
This place to fall into the bay,
Its greatest offense being thievery

A nightmare awakened by the boundless waters,
Will see a broken vow thrust
Into the arms of hellbound cowards,
And I've found,
The perfect accessory,
To that beautiful gown,
The handsome ghost of me

Most days I'd sit and wish for,
This place to fall into the bay,
Its greatest offense being thievery
And I
Will wash away the sins of former lovers,
A trail of stillborn conquest in my wake Tonight

Take this four-fingered salute,
I gave the fifth for you my dear,
May it beckon you to the salts below

Most days I'd sit and wish for,
This place to fall into the bay,
Its greatest offense being thievery
And I
Will wash away the sins of former lovers,
A trail of stillborn conquest in my wake Tonight

TONIGHT!

TONIGHT!

    General CommentWhich is a good thing by the sounds of it. The new cd is much better than anything they've written before.

    General CommentHardcore Good Charlotte? To me you cannot compare any IDT lyric to a band that sings, "I rock a law suit when I'm going to court. A white suit when I'm getting divorced. A black suit at the funeral home, and my birthday suit when I'm home alone."

    Just not right.

    General CommentSomeone help me out. Uh, whatever the diamond represents has found itself in a bad bad area where the people are assholes and thieves. Everyone got greedy and went for the "jewel" and in the process turned something beautiful into something ugly and regrettable. And some guy watching all this is hoping that this evil place would just cease to be...I'm still lost about the further meaning. This one sounds great though.

    General Commentif you guys actually listen to some of the songs on the cd, and watch the video for this song, it's actually nick, not jason who is singing them.
