"Diane" as written by and Grant Hart....
Hey little girl wanna go for a ride ?
There's room and my wagon is parked right outside
We can cruise down Rober Street all night long
But I think I'll just rape you and kill you instead
Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane
I hear there's a party at Lake Cove
It's be much easier if I drove
We could check it out
We can go and see
Come on take a ride with me
Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane
Lay down together for a while
I'll put all your clothes in a nice neat little pile
You're the cutest girl I've ever seen in my life
but it's over now and with my knife
Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane Diane

    General CommentRobert Street is in St. Paul, MN. Diane Edwards worked at a Perkins restaurant on Robert Street and was abducted, raped and murdered by Joseph Ture shortly after leaving work one night in 1980.

    General Commentguess it's easy for everyone to see:
    this is a wicked story about a killing - from the point of view of the killer.
    a serious warning for girls not to get into cars w/ strangers.
    and a f***in' great song, BTW. :)
    guess it ain't a coincidence that "Diane" sounds like "dyin' " either.

    General Commenterm... its a cover of the Husker Du song, that was based on a real event (and something similar happened in Therapy?'s home country, Ireland) i believe

    General CommentThis song tells the story from the killers point of vieuw... the killer prolly grew up in a poor family and didn't had much affection, His lonelyness isolated him and made him icecold. in the song he picks up a girl called Diane he raipes her and kills her - his frustration of a failled life and his comments on his life he gives to her cause she is one of the beautifull ppl in his eyes. It's a song about a pure psychopath killing a young girl. It's an exelent cover and they did a fine job with the sound.

    General CommentI have always thought it was the kind of song that made fun of people worrying, well I don't know about you guys, but my mom always expects to find a killer or something in the bushes, and is therefor afraid to let me go out all by my self...maybu something else may have influenced my point of view..by the time I heard the song children found dead were all over the news, some pedofil who had murdered at least 4 young kids, kinda my age and we all got messages of ignoring older kids we didn't know or jus people we didn't know, I thought it had something to do with a case like that

    General CommentHow weird. I didn't know it was a cover, and was looking at Ireland in Google maps to find out the location of the lyrics. In Cork, Ireland (not Northern Ireland, but still) there is both a "Robert street" and a "Lake Cobh" (I think it's pronounced the same way as "Lake Cove"). Just a funny coincidence.
