about

“The night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.”

Diamonds, the new album by The Birthday Massacre, contains an exploration of darkness as well as light, poison as well as its antidote. Within the songwriting, one can sense the passing of time, and the conflicts and resolutions that we can all feel. Nights end, and days resolve. If we look inside, we can find these precious emotions and conflicts. Every single one of them is valuable. Like the diamonds in the dark. And thus, we have "Diamonds" by the Birthday Massacre. The distinctive soaring synths and guitars, paired with our Chibi's beautiful familiar and reassuring voice, guides us all into the darkness as well as out to the light - guides us to mourn and to look inside, but also take our hand and invite us to dance, and remember - the night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.

Track Name: The Sky Will Turn
Doors of many, as of few, leading inside out, around and through.
Past forgotten, now as new.
A line dividing false and true.
This one and only room.
And as trapped as we are, it’s the devil we know.
The exceptions we make will never be shown.
To the rest of the world, what we touch turns to gold.
For a moment we freeze, but if ever there’s a full moon breaking, it’s painting our faces.
We won’t know which way the sky will turn.
We’re at the blood eclipse and we can’t look away. I
t’s like a car crash burning at the edge of the earth.
In the rainstorm, soft and grey.
Leading inside out, and float away.
Soon to stop, and hope to stay.
A light defining night and day.
And this is how we pray.
