Holy Diver Lyrics - Killswitch Engage

Review The Song (43)

(originally by Dio)

Yeah, yeah

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me?

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away
Holy Diver

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you - look out!

Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh, we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away - get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel - yeah!

Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

Jump, Jump
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen - yeah!

[Solo - Adam D.]

(Holy Diver...)
Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me? - No! Yeah!

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away, get away (get away!)
Gotta get away, get away - yeah, yeah

Holy Diver, sole survivor
Your heart is clean
Yeah, Holy Diver (Holy diver)
Holy Diver (Holy Diver)

You're caught in the middle coming after you, Holy Diver

Oh, Holy Diver (Holy Diver)
Get away, get away, get away - come on!

I know this is a year old but the folks saying this is the best song this band has ever made... THIS BAND has ever made?! Ronnie James Dio made this. RIP Dio, a true legend of Heavy Metal and first to use the bull horns. \m/ (note, I only came to this particular one to see if Killswitch had really used the same song Dio did, I do not thing lowly of the band for it or any reason, I was just curious to see if they'd actually used a REAL metal song, and they did and I actually have some respect for them for that reason)

super song!!! The song is so awesome. And especially i like the song at the ending. The guitar solo is so awesome. The starting is also so so cool. Waiting for the next album. . My other favourite songs r arms of sorrow, reject yourself, this fire burns, end of heartache, my curse, my last serenade, save me, etc.

Who cares, great song and greater cover | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/10

I dont know what the songs about and I don't care. I honestly like killswitch's version better, it's heavier, and I believe that this song was meant to be like that. I have both songs, on my iPod, and you can tell dio's is softer. Who cares about the lyrics, their clean in the first place.

Never can get enough!! | Reviewer: Brandon Windley!!!!! | 4/15/10

This song is the best song created!! The riffs are amazing as hell and Killswitch will always be my favorite band. I especially love the live version of this song. When I think about it, every live song Killswitch has put on their albums are utterly awesome. Love this band, Love this song, Love rock!

Holy Diver | Reviewer: Randall Carson | 4/14/10

Holy Diver is what is is too each of us. Everything in life can be taken positive or negetive depends on our own subconscious feelings. There is no right or wrong answer. Those that are believers in a supreme being may take it as words of wisdom and "not judge a book by it's cover", or may relate the lyrics to the book opf Revelation. Others may conclude thier own passions or fears ie: Drugs, evil, and so on. It is life and it is what it is to each of us like a perspective. Respect each other life is too short to challenge each others integrity.

This Song Kicks Ass! I F-ing love it and cant get enough of it!!And for all you people baggin on this song...why in the hell are u even reviewing it!!!nobody wants to hear u talk trash on a amazing band and song!!! so just consider punching yourself in the face a couple times!!!and get a life!!

Great | Reviewer: Metalhead For Li\fe | 9/30/09


The song was written about Ronnie James Dios involvement with heroin. He has said so himself!!! So all of you get your fucking facts straight!!! The tiger stripes refer to the heroin needle such, the midnight sea is the high etc. This is a great cover however probably their best song of as daylight dies. Howard James and KSE you are the SHIT!!!!!!!! maybe one adya you will be as good as metallica keep up the hard metal!!! Cant wait for next album 9/10 for me!!

Wow | Reviewer: Shogo | 9/17/09

This song is amazing.
So dan, you can go to hell.

rofl. And i don't see why the song NEEDS to have a meaning. A guy rants about a tiger and all that jazz. Let him. That's the beauty of the song. Who knows what it's about? I'm not saying you guys are wrong, i think it's awesome that so many different meanings can be taken. You guys are all awesome.

Except dan.
Dan can go lick a turd.

Peace out guys

What Retards | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/3/09

OK. Whoever wrote that this is an awful song, please jump off a bridge. If you like Dio's version then dont listen to this one. And whoever wrote about the "True Meaning" of this song, YOU ARE RETARDED...."i am quite religious" What are you bragging? You do know that God hates religion. Im a follower of Christ. This song has no foul or abusive language and it rocks my soul. There are few songs out there that immediately grab my attention like this one did. So, if your going to insult this song then dont bother. Go waste you time doing something else you idiots.

Meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/09

All your discussions are about the meaning of this fuckin awesome song. I just think every single person can find an own meaning in this song. There is no "real" meaning. Maybe the artist wrote it with a meaning and you understand a different one. ^^ Its kinda useless to start arguing about meanings they are always different :D
