Shinedown - Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)

Stephanie posted another song by this band earlier, but I need to post about them too, for therapy's sake, and you get to read about another one of the steaming ass babies this band has made.

I don't like Shinedown.

In fact, I hate Shinedown; not in the I-just-kinna-don't-like-them way, but in the if-I-had-a-chance-to-push-a-button-that-would-erase-them-from-the-world-and-make-everyone-in-the-band-and-whoever-liked-them-die-by-having-their-bodies-fill-up-with-rat-shit-and-explode kinna way.

The amount this band sucks has gone past just a degrading sexual act to what can only be described as an industrial application: I think Dyson studies these fucks to make their products. They take the absolute worst of Active Rock and Country music and form it into this turd that idiots love to smear on their chests.

So this post could be applied to all of their music, but is specifically about their latest single called "Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)" that has all of thier fans shitting thier cages. Ignoring the fact that they put out a song with the title of a song and album that The Deftones had JUST put out that doesn't suck this song makes me laugh because I believe the handlers behind Shinedown figured out their demographic completey with this one. Instead of making a lyrical song full of meaning and metaphore they are obviously pandering to their biggest fans: the illiterate.

"I've got it!" some producer at Atlantic says, "None of these ass-fucks can read, so lets make Shinedown make a song with the chorus being the sound a gun makes and then talk about fucking! Guns and sex! $$$$$$!" Then they put the cattle prods to the guys of Shinedown to crank out another useless, riff-driven, piece of shit from the Active Rock factory and make the most prominent feature of the song BOOM-LAY!! Then every slack-jawed mouth breather who loves this fuckery blasts the song and yells along to what they percieve as the nonesense chorus while shooting firearms and making more illegitimate children. a Semiotic MASTERPIECE.

The lyrics:


I am the shadow, and the smoke in your eyes
I am the ghost, that hides in the night

Boom-lay boom-lay, boom! (repeat)

Wait, wait a minute take a step back,
Gotta think twice before you react.
So stay, stay a little while cause a promise
Not kept is the road to exile
Hey, what's the circumstance
You'll never be great without taking a chance
So, wait you waited too long
Had your hands in your anekatips pocket
When you should've been gone.

(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
One push is all you need
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
A fist-first philosophy
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
We watch with wounded eyes.
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
So I hope you recognize.

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness, so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through diamond eyes

Damn, damn it all down
Took one to the chest without even a sound
anekatips so, what, what do you want
The things you love or the people you hurt
Hey, it’s like deja vu suicidal maniac with nothing to lose
So wait, it's the exception to the rule
Everyone of us is expendable

(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
One push is all you need
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
This is philosophy.
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
We watch with wounded eyes.
(Boom-lay boom-lay boom)
So I hope you recognize.

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness,
So long to the regrets
And now I know that I'm alive

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through
Diamond Eyes

(uuuuuuuuuuuuuh uuuuuh)

Every night of my life I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don't take mine

guitar solo

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to regrets

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to the regrets
And now I know that I'm alive

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness, so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through diamond eyes

Out on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
(The story is just beginning)
I say goodbye to my weakness,
So long to the regrets
And now i see the world through
Diamond eyes anekatips

Boom-lay boom-lay boom (repeat till the end)
