"Ddiamondd" as written by Tyondai Braxton, David Konopka, John Stanier and Ian T Williams....
The diamond that was stolen held the code that melted
Water into letters spelling, where it had been taken to
In fact, I had a vision of the numbers
Corresponding with the letters, T H E D I A M O N D

They're suspended like a prism splitting floodlight
To poles of primary colors clawing the veil of the vacuum
There's a picture of this given to authorities, the sentence
"I'm an architect and here's my prison" written on it

With schematics so meticulous the measurements
Of super-impositions of a room within the window
Make a dream that ends up being such an entity in your
Reflection, you are the dream to it, you are the prism

The mirrors in the corner throwing images
Against the other mirrors made counting corners impossible
The breaking news had counted one, two, three, four, five
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven corners of the mirrored corners

Why have you done? What you have done something
Is so sinister when staring at the diamond something
You have done sinister why have you done this am I in the mirror?
Am I what you have been staring at, am I a diamond?

Just like a reflection of a friend of mine
I am a reflection of an enemy, am I a reflection of an enemy
Just like a reflection of a friend of mine?

    General CommentI think that this song is about the betrayal and ruthlessness of the american dream. The speaker of the song is staring into this diamond, a symbol of success, wealth, and power. The speaker is trying to figure out the code to unlocking those ideas that are contained within the diamond. The speaker is attempting to figure out the secret to the american dream. He/she only ends becoming more and more confused by the refracting, reflecting, and diffracting beams of light inside the diamond, very similar to Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman. Upon analyisis this diamond leaves more questions than answers and shows that thinking about power is just as corrupting as power itself.

    As a sidenote the lyricist of this song probably uses all of this mathematical vocabulary to confuse the reader. I know that sounds crazy, but think about it. The writer was attempting to confuse the reader just as much as the decoder, who are essentially the same - confusing, eh? - and that is why so many are perplexed by this song. The above paragraph is just a grope in the dark at the song's meaning.

    General CommentHoly shit is right. All this time I thought these were just noises, but it turns out there's a whole friggin' story inside this already amazing song. I love how at the end, there's a statement about mirrors that is mirrored upon itself. Good stuff. I have no idea what it means though.

    General CommentI think it would be next to impossible to be less than amazed by the musical qualities exhibited by Battles. Their music is legendary when you listen to it and differs from the lyrics when you read it. Very few artists can claim such talent and Battles definitely falls into that category. The lyrics seem quite metaphorical and deep, and seem to signal a struggle or fight within an individual. Whatever the meaning, the lyrics show a complicated thought process that can only be entangled by the writer or the person going through those events.
