We can laugh at it now
I don't mind all the burning daggers
Piercing me, shaping me
Turning the blade on you

I revealed my escape
Sweetest mutiny, ship was sinking
Deeper and deeper and deeper
On top of you

Oh, how does it feel?
Now when there's no way out
You married your own Hell
Couldn't get out of your own mind

Now I have the key
Out of the downwards spiralling conspiracy
Just look at me
Just look at
Diva, Diva, Diva, Diva

When you chiselled your scene
So delusional, almost got me
Started to question my sanity 'cos of you

I've been tasting the salt
Couldn't stand all the rats on board
I walked down the plank as the curtains fell down
On you

Oh, how does it feel?
Now when there's no way out
You married your own Hell
Couldn't get out of your own mind

Now I have the key
Out of the downwards spiralling conspiracy
Just look at me
Just look at
Diva, Diva, Diva, Diva

    My InterpretationIn their open letter to Tarja when she was fired, her band Nightwish called her a "diva". That makes me think that this song is in response.

    General CommentThis song is about Tuomas and how Tarja felt about leaving Nightwish.
    here is my interpretation of the song...


    We can laugh at it now
    I don't mind all the burning daggers
    Piercing me, shaping me
    Turning the blade on you

    (Tarja says she doesnt care anymore, its all in the past now)


    I revealed my escape
    Sweetest mutiny, ship was sinking
    Deeper and deeper and deeper
    On top of you

    (Here she says she was feeling exhausted and unconfortable)

    Oh, how does it feel?
    Now when there's no way out
    You married your own Hell
    Couldn't get out of your own mind

    (I think she's referring to Tuomas selfish attitude)


    Now I have the key
    Out of the downwards spiralling conspiracy
    Just look at me
    Just look at
    Diva, Diva, Diva, Diva

    (Now Tarja is somehow free to do what she likes)


    When you chiselled your scene
    So delusional, almost got me
    Started to question my sanity 'cos of you

    (Somewhow she felt Tuomas was acting and she relized that was confusing her ?)

    I've been tasting the salt
    Couldn't stand all the rats on board
    I walked down the plank as the curtains fell down on you

    (She finally realises how things were in the band)


    Oh, how does it feel?
    Now when there's no way out
    You married your own Hell
    Couldn't get out of your own mind

    Now I have the key
    Out of the downwards spiralling conspiracy
    Just look at me
    Just look at
    Diva, Diva, Diva, Diva

    General CommentIt could be interpreted as a love song, sung to a lover who left her. However, it clearly also applies to her breakup with Nightwish.
    Wikipedia says that the album is inspired by Annie Lennox. An interesting thing is that Annie named her first solo album "Diva" (after leaving Eurythmics).
