about

Searching for Diamonds Zurich, Switzerland

After the dissolving of eachs band, Josip and Gino united to create a new metalcore band to overpass any other project they have made before. Thanks to the joinings of Patrick, Daniel and Alexander, they found the band completening musicians to express the music which had only been in their minds before.

The union of several musical influences gives Searching for Diamonds its fresh sound.

Track Name: The Heartless
Strive for the change
A piece of our heart, a piece of hope for those in need
Open their graves
A piece of our heart, a piece of hope for those in need

Now listen up
It’s sad to know that we can live our lives
In all its beauty and abundance
While some never find
They keep on searching and wishing for the end
To escape the misery they’ve learnt to accept

Tell me what it’s like to walk down a crowded street
Still having to feel all alone, like everybody’s a potential enemy
Alone amongst a thousand, a self-centred generation
Is this the direction we’re heading into, just a bunch of narrow minded bastards?

Send out your heart to those who had theirs torn so long ago

How can we abandon them to their fate?
The broken-hearted, hopeless and unloved
The epitomes of lives never lived
But lives not yet to reach the end

The broken hearted may find solace
The unloved may find love
And truth may come to those desperately seeking

We can rot alone when we’re buried six foot deep
For now take the walking dead out of their graves
With your heart as big as an ocean
Lead them back to live
Be their guiding light

Keep this in the back of your mind
You’re privileged to feel alive
Now feel alive
Track Name: Burn the Past
This wrath comes up, it’s burning inside
Like a fire consuming me
But I’ve sparked the flames, spread it through my veins
Now I will take consequence
Burn the past
Step away from the point of no return
It’s all I want
To show you what has been on my mind

Is this the end?
I fell, I got up, I start again
This story hasn’t faced its end
The last page is blank
My time is now
Is this the end?
I fell, I got up, I start again
This story hasn’t faced its end
I’m gonna keep it alive
With all my heart
And it goes on and on

Every day I slipped into another role
But they were just a facade
I please to forgive I hope you realize
This illusion was not me
I need to move on now
Not looking back never again never again
I need to move on now
And leave behind the times of broken trust

To anyone who felt let down, to anyone who met with rejection
My heavy heart has bottled up all the sadness of the past
I’m going to flood it now the ducts are open

All my sadness and the smile that I force
They will let you know
You still got my back
My best side comes from you
You still got my back
I’ve never showed you
You still got my back
My best side comes from you
And after all I will start to show you
This is not the end
Track Name: Set the Anchor
Waking up every morning without you by my side
Looking back on another lonely night
This cycle repeats day by day
You’re out of my sight
Regrets getting harder to carry
It’s such a lie to say I could forget you
Your pictures are racing through my head
Your name lies trapped in my heart
I can’t get loose of you

Back then it was uncertainty which was tearing me apart
Now it’s certainty which is feeding my emptiness

Set the anchor in my mind
I can’t get you out of my head
Set the anchor in my mind
Change the course and follow me home

I will be there waiting for you

How many times did I lie to you by telling I’m fine?
Well I’m not so don’t think feelings are fake
Teach me to breath teach me to live
I need you here to pull me back
Back to life again
It’s such a lie to say I could forget you
Your pictures are racing through my head
Your name lies trapped in my heart
I can’t get loose of you

Back then it was uncertainty which was tearing me apart
Now it’s certainty which is feeding my emptiness

All these tears screaming your name
Won’t let me forget you
So let me say these words

As long as there is a heart beating your name
As long as there is a spark of love left for you
I won’t give up on you
Don’t give up on me
Track Name: Weary Hands
Do you remember this time?
You saw the clouds gather and block out the sun
The horizon’s wrapped in grey
Gone has the glance that it showed yesterday
Time passes you by
You’re too numb to change and too scared to face the day
So you pour another drink tonight to put your mind to sleep
And in your dreams you see all that could have been
Leaving you wishing for a better day
When the sun strikes back through the grey

I could tell you a thousand stories of that moment
When you look back in time with deep regrets
And look ahead through fearful eyes
I was in this place several times before
Left with a choice between giving up or pushing on
But it has always been clear to me
I’ll never choose that way out
I won’t give misery a spark to ignite
Every try to expand will be choked off by hope
Track Name: Square One
All what’s left in my mind are regrets
Of a time never coming back
Are all my beliefs fading to nothing?
Or is this what I ever wanted?

To start anew past chapters need to close first
The feeling you gave me with every touch
Now seems so unreal
I am who I used to be for the first time in awhile
Strength is rebuilding again
I gain hope for a new beginning

You cut the noose around my neck
Saved me from suffocating
You showed me what’s really worthy in life
Now I learn from past mistakes

Desperation you never mislead me again
You only weigh me down
Desperation you never steal my time again
You nailed my feet to the ground
Before I could fly to new heights

Now I burn every thought of you
Scatter the ashes till there are no memories left
Don’t get me wrong I am just thankful
I’ve let you fall to rise again

I am back at square one

Now I see it never seemed so clear
Finding comfort in myself
This is all I ever needed
I don’t need anyone
This is all I ever wanted
I’ve learned to let go
That’s what makes me survive
Track Name: Of Perfection
We all suffer from staying on course
To live our lives and dreams with no remorse
It’s in our hands to give meaning to our lives
Something we can hold on ‘til the end of our times

These are our beliefs our anchor through every storm
These are the pilings on which our every life can grow

To stand for what you believe
Sometimes means to stand alone
But it’s better on your own
Than live a live shoved down our throat

There’s no such thing as one perfect life
Perfection can be found in a thousand of ways
If you’re following the signs in your heart
You will see the world laying to your feet

These are our beliefs our anchor through every storm
These are the pilings on which our every life can grow

To stand for what you believe
Sometimes means to stand alone
But it’s better on your own
Than live a live shoved down our throat

We won’t live a lie
So scream these words loud

You’ve got the right to choose direction
With the compass sitting in your heart
With your heart above your head
Live life your own perfect way
Don’t live a lie
