DiamondsOctagon Sessions

We're getting squeezed
But if we keep up the fight,
We'll come out brighter and tighter than we used to be.

It's getting harder for me everyday,
Because I saw you in your heyday.
Now you're just a mess of broken pieces,
Just a shell of urban decay.

Good morning, Detroit.  
Why the long face?
You look like shit when you don't smile.

Good night, Detroit.
You've really let yourself go.
Can't say I hate you, but I hate what you've become.

We're getting squeezed
But if we keep up the fight,
We'll come out brighter and tighter than we used to be.

It's getting harder to increase our status
When we're so surrounded by grit.
Folks in the D got so much callous,
So fed up with it.

Good morning, Detroit.  
Why the long face?
You look like shit when you don't smile.

Good night, Detroit.
You know I’ll never let you go.
I will always love you, and I’ll love what you’ll become.

People so malicious.
You best know where to go at night. 
Militias patrol the street.
Unheard wishes.
There's no hope for hoping for
Better days or better nights.
That's why everybody leaves.
If you can.

We're getting squeezed
But if we keep up the fight,
We'll come out brighter and tighter than we used to be.

If silence is golden, then our noise is diamonds.
Please chill out the violence.
