Album The Fine Art of Surfacing. Diamond Smiles Lyrics. Traffic's wild tonight Diamond smiles her cocktail smile Tonight she's in heavy disquise She looks at her wrist to clock the passing time. Everybody tries It's Dale Carnegie gone wild But Barbara Cartland's child Long ago perfected the motionless glide. In the low voltage noise Diamond seems so sure and so poised She shimmers for the bright young boys And laugh's "Love is for others, but me it destroys". The girl in the cake Jumped out too soon by mistake Somebody said the whole thing's half baked And Diamond lifts her glass and says "cheers". She stands to the side There's no more to this than meets the eye Everybody drinks Martini dry And talks about clothes and the latest styles.

I've swallowed it now and trying to move on. However, I have been prompted to move too by Bobby Boomtown himself who has pushed me into a project with one of the Rats' old friends from Dublin who is going to make a 'history of the Rats' type documentary; so if any of you have old footage (super 8 etc), posters/flyers that can be copied and sent or rare. Back to gigs soon and we all on tip toes for the forthcoming album.
