Diamonds Lyrics First Verse I’ve got dandruff like diamonds as big as the Ritz I’m getting old and weird; It is getting late. I’ve got dandruff like diamonds as big as the Ritz Thank God for the internet! Chorus: I was lucky to be cut into a thousand pieces. Lucky the pieces got picked up and appreciated. Lucky that appreciation was mutually pleasing. Lucky to be found by you instead of drowning in the sea again. Second Verse: I’ve got dandruff like diamonds as big as the Ritz I’ve got wrinkles cut into my face worse than Cheese & Onion crisps Went prematurely grey Even worse than Andrew FCKN Gaze Feel as old as old can be Like a dog that’s had its day Chorus: I was lucky to be cut into a thousand pieces. Lucky the pieces got picked up and appreciated. Lucky that appreciation was mutually pleasing. Lucky to be found by you instead of drowning in the sea again. Outro: Well falling in love is easier than putting a man on the moon. But you can’t stay in either ether forever You’ll suffocate out on them dunes.

Bird Food 03:12
When you're in the room, I feel uncomfortable. Standing next to you, I feel uncomfortable. Diver dressed in blue, oh what's a boy to do; Fish Food falls through the roof... So much more to me and you than you and me, got shores that slope into the sea, dark oceans fold on them at night, and Cuttlefish die in the bright white light. Their bones make good Bird Food.

Hanging Around: I’ve been hanging around with you, hanging around it’s true, seemed like the right thing to do, to just hang around with you. [Slip those seven seals to reset the sun. Now look at the good things we’ve done] Cats chasing lasers and brunch, Fugazi, Twin Peaks and slam dunks, everything that makes us cum, daydreams and dresses undone. [Slip that seventh seal and reset the sun. Relax, the good stuff has only begun!] Like coffee and donuts and snuff, and love’s endless morning. I’ve been hanging around with, you’ve been hanging around with, I’ve been hanging around with you.

about

DIAMONDS is the new single by Australia's Halfheads, a hymn to getting dead, an ode to Andrew Gaze and a cautionary tale of what happens to your face if you don’t drink the recommended daily amount of water each day. Get it in you. This marks the third and final digital single release by the HH and we've compiled this with the previous Bird Food and Hangin' Around singles to form the Finnish Singles set.

HALFHEADS
Formed in 2009 in North Melbourne and splitting the following year, Halfheads are releasing their first recordings since their 2010 demo tape (it's on soundcloud). Keeping in touch via a range of messaging apps in the interim, band members reconvened in Brisbane recently to record songs from their first go around, and a few new ones.
Halfheads features members of little-known and forgotten Brisbane-Melbourne-Buffalo acts including Eat Laser Scumbag!, Dollarbar, Les Fancy Boys, Trophy Wives and Dream Journal. Mutually influenced and in love with Wire, Devo, ECSR, and the Feelies, the band are happy to have Swashbuckling Hobo releasing the results in 2020 as a series of digital singles.
