"Black Diamond" is a song by Kiss written by rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley. "'Black Diamond' was written almost exactly as it is," he said, "except that the riff wasn't there; Gene [Simmons] brought that part in… It's all about arrangement and embellishment. That's what you're supposed to do in a band: come in and add something. But that doesn't mean you wrote the song." Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

Out on the street for a living

Picture`s only begun

Got you under their thumb

Hit it

Out on the streets for a living

Picture`s only begun

Your day is sorrow and madness

Got you under their thumb

Whoo, black diamond

Whoo, black diamond

Darkness will fall on the city

It seems to follow you too

And though you don`t ask for pity

There`s nothin` that you can do, no, no

Whoo, black diamond

Whoo, black diamond

Out on the streets for a living

Picture`s only begun

Your day is sorrow and madness

Got you under their thumb

Whoo, black diamond, yeah

Whoo, black diamond
