Demons and Diamonds new song from We Are Overlap


This song is about how we are conditioned from childhood to fit into the definition of society.


Some fit, most compromise and some are outside of any definition.

They are called crazy or genius, but they don't care what they are called for they are free to live an authentic life.


No longer chasing the demons of diamonds.


No longer chasing things they're told will make them happy.


They are no longer the definition of 'humanity'.


They don't pretend to know what or where they are, they simply breathe to live.


 

Demons and Diamonds


My ruby-red lipstick now painted black

No looking back

No looking forward

Only the smoke remains

Blowing perfect circles in the air

Behind the silver teeth and non-belief


My demons and diamonds

My crystals and diamonds

Glinting in the artificial eyes

My demons and diamonds

They’re with me all the time


As the sand leaks from the pockets

With the holes never sewn

Burning my legs as I walk and I talk

To the shadows on the walls that only stop and stare

At journeys made by fools

You think that I would care


As the flowers melt down the sky

Down the walls

As strangers speak of good old days

With nothing to say

Forever will be and only for me


Upside down and all around

The smiles of fat clowns smiling down

And guiding me to the light

In the dead of night


So silently I cannot see

I could not feel what was fake and what was real

But my poems keep me company


My demons and diamonds

Smiling and shining

My demons and diamonds

Selling and lying, lying, lying


Upside down and all around

The smiles of fat clowns smiling down

And guiding me to the light

In the dead of night

So silently I cannot see

I could not feel what was fake and what was real

But my poems keep me company


These demons and diamonds

Smiling and shining

My demons and diamonds

Selling and lying, lying, lying


These demons and diamonds

Smiling and shining

These demons and diamonds

Smiling and shining

Selling and lying

My demons and diamonds

Smiling and crying

These demons and diamonds

Melting and flying, flying, flying
