Bloody Diamonds play rock n' roll. Soulful, powerful vocals and dirty riffs make their hard-hitting live show a bewitching act to behold. Somewhere between Black Sabbath, Jack White and Patti Smith lays this Toronto-based four-piece, with a vocalist who is one minute soft and sweet - then foaming at the mouth. ... more

Track Name: Lady of The Night
Oh, you're not allowed to cry
Wipe those tears from your eyes
There's still business to be done
Your songs can't keep going unsung

Hike your dress up a little more
Fix your hair, and lock the door
Tell them what they want to hear
Give yourself away, my dear,

Put the smile back on
Do your dance, lights off
Make him sweat a little more
Get a little rough, drag it on

When he screams, don’t bite
Just love him with all your might
Then throw him to the ground
Lady of the night

Yeah she’s a lady of the night
She’s a lady
She’s a lady of the night
Track Name: She Ain't Pretty
She ain’t pretty
She paints her face to hide the dirt
With just one look
She’s got the glass starting to curve

She’ll lean on you
Drive you straight into the wall
She’ll bend and twist
Make you wish you were in hell

She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no
She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no

She’ll burn you down
Watch the flames grow miles high
She’ll melt you, hunny
Look in her eyes and you’ll go wild

You hear the sound of her voice?
Rip it out cause it’s obscene
She’ll make you cry
Just one touch, you’ll never leave

She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no
She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no

She ain’t pretty with the way that she lies
She ain’t pretty with the way that she smiles
She ain’t pretty when you close your eyes
She ain’t pretty, don’t be fooled by no disguise

She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no
She ain’t pretty, she ain’t, no
Track Name: I'm Not A Machine
You think you’re a machine
You go tick-tock as I dream
You don’t stop, no you don’t breathe

You smoke your cigarettes
Like a queen would drink her tea
Your perfection’s killing me

You’re cold as stone
So straight, you’re gonna be alone

Just like a carousel
You spin round till you can’t see
I try to help, but there’s no key

You’ve turned into my fear
There’s no smile on your face
It’s been cut, it’s been erased

You’re cold as stone
So straight, you’re gonna be alone

You think you’re, You think you’re a machine (x4)
I’m not a machine (x4)
Track Name: Monopoly
We follow down the brick road
Yeah we all do what we’re told
In the end it’s just a game
They break us down, they watch us scream

When we’ve run dry they will take more
No they don’t care, we’re just their toys
Power is all that they need
To run this monopoly

So what are you gonna be?
The Joker or the Queen
Don’t say, you agree
With this insanity
This is a monopoly

You close your eyes and off they go
Taking what’s mine and what is yours
But do they really believe
That I can’t see through this scheme

Someday we’ll turn this all around
Make them pay us for what they’ve drowned
As long as we all agree
This world’s a monopoly

So what are you gonna be?
The Joker or the Queen
Don’t say, you agree
With this insanity
This is a monopoly

So what are you gonna be?
The Joker or the Queen
Don’t say, you agree
With this insanity
This is a monopoly
Track Name: White Lies
There’s boxes and boxes full of little white lies
Tucked away in your closet, baby don’t bring them out tonight
You’ve been testing me, testing me, testing my strength
I only got time for the truth, make this easy on me

I don’t think you realize what’s been going on
I’ve been sweating through my pores, just trying to push this along
I’ve been giving and giving and giving, and all you do is take
I don’t even want to think that loving you was a mistake

I still crave the smell of your cigarretes
I don’t want to end any of this
But I can’t move on if you don’t see

Everything I do, oh boy I do it for you
I just need a little more, I don’t like being this poor
I won’t be one of your possessions
I’m sick and tired of asking question
My bones are pleading for some relief
She What you’re doing to me

I feel like I’ve gotta scream in your face
To get from you what I need, I’ve gotta yell for just a taste
There’s no reason for me to have the be this cold
All these excuses you’re giving me are getting old

I still crave the smell of your cigarretes
I don’t want to end any of this
But I can’t move on if you don’t see

Everything I do, oh boy I do it for you
I just need a little more, I don’t like being this poor
I won’t be one of your possessions
I’m sick and tired of asking question
My bones are pleading for some relief
She What you’re doing to me

Everything I do
Everything I do
Its what your doing to me
Track Name: Baby Don't Be Nice
Wake up up up
You’re still asleep baby
Don’t you see see see
What’s this world’s hiding?

You’ve been told how to walk
How to talk and breathe
But don’t think that’s the way
It’s supposed to be

Baby don’t be nice
Breathe it in till tears run down your face
Drink it up, see the mess that it makes
Take whatever you can get from this life
Baby don’t be nice

They say we’re going down down down
With every step we take
So lets get high, high, high
And let our minds erase

Play with knives, throw ‘em round
Hang them by a thread
Make it count, when you kill
Or we’ll all be dead

Chorus
Track Name: Twisted
You abused me, like no one else
I dreamt of you chasing me, felt sorry for myself
Now I see why I was blind
You were pushing me, pushing me, and covering my eyes

You manipulated, stabbed me in the back
No they couldn’t see through you, not through your mask
All the gypsies and the thieves
Tell stories about you till your mouth bleeds

You had diamonds in your pockets
You had blood on your hands

Twisted, with your words
You learn from the devil and pretend it doesn’t hurt
Twisted

I can see the Devil coming for you
He likes everything you do
I can see your bones
Your name carved in stone

Chorus
Track Name: Crack
It ain’t easy
It ain’t black and white
I’m always moving too fast
Can’t even see where I’m at

I know you don’t understand
Why can’t I just play pretend
You haven’t lived with this madness... Yeah I’m gonna

I’m gonna Crack
There won’t be no goin back
And there ain’t nothin’ you can do
I’m gonna split right in two

I can feel it
Like an extra layer of skin
Tightening my existence
Yeah it just wants me to give in

And it makes me sick
So tired of this shit
I’m only holding on for you, there, honey… Yeah I’m gonna

Chorus

I know you think I’m crazy
I should be locked underground
Just tear my thoughts out first
Don’t leave me with those scars abound
One day you might see why
I have to cry myself to sleep
It’s an addiction but there ain’t no help for what I see

Chorus
Track Name: Disease
Pull my strings tight, put my head on right
Make me smile, make me dance, till I start to decay now
Pave the way for catastrophe, make me believe
Your life is the one that I want now

Put your thoughts right in my head,
They’re full of dirt tell them I’ve gone insane now
Read me those tales of the castle and the king,
Does he feel any better? He’s got gold at his feet now

Don’t give me your disease
If I give in, you’ll watch me bleed
Don’t give me your disease
Those fingerprints weren’t meant for me

Feed me your lies, tell me you’re happy
Make me forget why I don’t want to be you know
You’ve got your money and your high class looks
But you can’t understand why they’re following me now

Chorus
Track Name: They've Got Secrets
A young girl came to me in my dreams
She says they’ve got secrets, secrets that they keep
A long way deep beneath the ground
Oh, never to be found

I was walking barefoot in the grass
I heard a scream, a whisper and a laugh
I wasn’t sure if I should stop in my tracks
Or turn and run, and never look back

They’ve got secrets, I can feel it in the wind
But there’s not much I can say without digging myself a grave
So I just watch the ghosts as they pass
Hoping one day they won’t be staring back

The shadows fell like the fourth of July
There was a flash of light, oh they lit up the sky
Little did I know, mother was sharping those knives
I started to run but something made me stay
Oh I wish how I had gone on my way

Chorus
