Our next show is July 23 @ Rustic Oaks: Tickets Available!

Soft Spot

I got a soft spot
for your red hot
beating heart on top
of my big lot

sweet and super salty
thick and kind of malty
rich but somewhat faulty
bit corny but I’m wanting
your love all though it’s haunting
in some odd way
I like you like it’s real
though it feels like play
so scare me with your kindness
I’m bleeding out my sinus
here’s to you, your highness
this is me, I’m buying this
(can I take two?)

I got a soft spot
for your red hot
beating heart on top
of my big lot
so maybe you should stop stop
before I drop drop
cause you’ve got me got caught
showin' off my soft spot

It’s sweet. It’s sweet, sweet. Sweet, sweet.

Sweet and swept in syrup
Bit salty as a tear up
You showed me how to cheer up

Without having a beer up
If this is drunken love
Consider me Beyoncé on a beach
that’s enough
Come over, red rover
Bring Hova right over and over...

You know how to talk talk
and you walk walk
act and stand tall tall
I’m falling for your role call
so maybe you should stop stop
before I drop drop
cause you’ve got me got caught
showin off my soft spot

or will I have with withdrawals
softie like me is vulnerable
will I be hurt and fall
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all
perhaps we shouldn’t talk at all

I got a soft spot
for your red hot
beating heart on top
of my big lot
so maybe you should stop stop
before I drop drop
cause you’ve got me got caught
showin off my soft spot

Don't Stop

Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
I can make it happen I can make it work

I shuck and I jive
Like tomorrow never dies
I smell all the pies
My sweet sense is still alive
Cause if I can’t afford it
At least I can dream
And skew up my passions
with my band as my team
The Thrills is what I mean
Give no hisses only screams
Never frowns, only beams
Radiate your smile
And stay for a while
I can send it with no dial
Be your friend more than pen pal
To all depths no shallow, hi-ho
"Yo!" as my greeting
with my raps forever beating
Till my heart stops speeding
Spitting and sipping and sitting on earth

Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
I can make it happen I can make it work

I’m drastically classic
Tacticfully blasted
Ask me, I’ve had it
I’m flattered, it matters
I’ll stick it to you jabber
Kick the rhyme, a pattern
My oh my, it’s a choice but not an answer
Believe me, sweetie
I’m not a tiny dancer
My moves so large they destroy like cancer
But don’t twist my words
Or feed me to the angry birds
It’s verse, not a curse,
to let my thoughts disperse
Unheard of and diverse
You heard me I’m the first
Chick who’s not a nurse or a secretary
I don’t need you to dare me, scare me
I’m no tinker bell or fairy
Give me weights for me to carry
Till I’m buried in my own sweat
Happily on my own
Stepping up a stone
Cause believe me I am gone

Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
I can make it happen I can make it work

Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
I brush off my shoulders
getting free from the dirt
I’m here to assert
To pack my pail and go work
Drop the garbage and the blurbs
Nevermind what yah heard
From the gossip boys and girls
Cause your heads more than they’re worth
So spend it on something you got a birth
Cause never was it heavy
Ultra light
fucking right
hit me up -- spike
and pick me up – tight
and drop me cause I don’t flop
do it from the tippy top
I can pick the spot
Drop it like it’s hot, drop it like’s hot
Like I’m snoop dogg, like a night fog

Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
Believe me when I say I don’t stop when it hurts
I can make it happen I can make it work

Here We Go

Here we go now,
Here we go now
Here we go now
I don’t really know how

Here we go now
I don’t really know how
So I’m gonna try till I die
to hit the sky and not come down
knock em down
take em three years to come around
while your whole life’s spinning
I’m-a spit a new verse
What you call a blessing
I can call a curse
A hostile way’s the worse
So sing the gospel or disperse
Whatever hurts the worst
I’m-a choose it first
So I must begin
With the freshest skin
A fresh pair of Nikes on and I can pull a win
Cause I’m sold in the comfort
I’m sewn, unencumbered
I’m know to tell a joke
to make me feel less broke
So whatever you poke you better poke me first
Holler at your girl
not your homie, boy
I like me real men, you not some ball of joy
Cause your just a toy
And I don’t adore yah
So herald to your mom and she’ll a-spoil yah!

Here we go now,
Here we go now
Here we go now
I don’t really know how

Here we go now
I don’t really know how
I had a cow while taking a bow to the crowd
To get more wild than my dreams have style
A version of flavor
I did myself a favor, I put it on the table
And passed it to my neighbor
But why stop now?
Hip hop don’t drop the pounds
It’s all about the sounds
never staying on the group
Like a never ending version of a hook so sweet
Stripped down and raw you can play it on repeat
Morphing your mind, expanding in size
Try to make it stop but you can’t as it glides
I can see it in your eyes, it’s what you fantasize
Cause my heart never lies
I take advantage of my time
As the ticking clock revolves
and my dreams evolve
Well, there you go. Problem solved.

Here we go now,
Here we go now
Here we go now
I don’t really know how

Cause, yo, I am Diane Miller
Does that just not sound killer?
I guess it’s just my job
to be a natural born thriller
Holler, holler.
I want to earn a dollar.
Not from the devil but from the depths of hollow.
Drink my life in swallows
Pass my time in wallows
Sing like Annie: the sun will come out tomorrow
Tomorrow!
So I gotta hang on
So I gotta game on
I’m so sick, I’m so with it
Packed of steel, made of real
Deal of all deals
Thrills with D Mills
Thrills kill

Here we go now,
Here we go now
Here we go now
I don’t really know how

Ready Set Go

What do we ask when there’s little return?
Forcing your noggin and feeling it burn
Earning the privilege to take it back
No sweat for the damage to answer the catch
Crunch the time,
earn your dimes,
nickels and rhymes,
Don’t steal em, they’re mine.
My life is a bat and I swing it MLB style
Chewing on raps till my morning turns black
My hair is a rat’s nest,
I wear a hat
At best I ask, carry on with my task
Sometimes I laugh if appropriate
Other times I smile like when we first met
Take my life back, through the looking glass
And with time my wicked nerves will pass
A++, hop on the school bus -- education on us.
What do we ask without stealing your germs
And not turn around
and face the guilt as it burns?
Listen to some glibness, ask for forgiveness
Talk behind your back not your face.
It’s a business!
Y’all can kiss this as dismiss this
Limit, inhibit, ribbit and croak
Causing me to laugh without hearing a joke
Time to take, we ain’t tired for breaks
I’m a rapper now, we need to up the stakes
I’ll never be a disgrace
Though my music’s dirty,
crunked out, viscous and wordy
Cause I’m not hear to look purdy
Not, not, not, not, not hear to look
Not, not, not, not, not hear to look
Purdy, I’m just worthy
You know me, yeah your heard me

On your marks! ready set go

Cause I’ll do what I want
Won’t do what you don’t
Mostly survive without fearing to choke
This is to my fears, this is to my brains
Separate the two
Make a trip, it’ll rain
Oh my god! Is this what life is?
Take what I want and I won’t downsize it
Not surprising of my eye comprising
of everything I want cause I’m maximizing
share my prize, try to hide my pride
all for you, cause if not I’ll die
It’s a natural high from going low to the sky
Reaching isn’t easy without brains or a drive
So it’s time to take and not sick back
Figure out your talents, gifts and knacks
Ready set go attack with tactic
Heavy on the go, get drastic
Feel it old school, jurassic
Creative with the new, fantastic
I have it
not bad but better than the day before
No never ever said I’d fair the weather
ever letta getta better mega head of me
No ever lever for a beggar
Got horns for another level, room for the devil, heavy gold metal
Here we go, nose dive -- drop
Get it back with a drive -- stop
This is why I’m hot
This is why I’m not
This is what I’ve got to make it to the top
Ready set go -- on spot!

On your marks! ready set go

Ready set go, I don’t go slow
Pour four my hits
Force your dance hips
Top to the tip
Flip flop, never sit
Quicker, ticker than a flicker
Hipper than a sick-a cigarette
Never bigger
Hey I’m Di,
Why I smile so wild like a mile
10 times to the pile
make drums something wild?
it’s something
to make you head bumping
Jumping, inside a House of Pain
Fill you up with knowledge to treat your brain
This is crazy and insane
Here we go back to the main

On your marks! ready set go

Let There Be Light

I’ve made the choice to use my own voice
Let there be light, oh let there be light

I’m so hot like a steel pipe
I do it cause it feels right
Though I gotta to think twice
I hit you cause I can fight -- a cat fight
And scratch you so hard
that your nails don’t bite
…Told you that before
Hear me or just fold
My lyrics so cold
It’s hot, Minnesota
I don’t suffer aches
I aint gettin’ older,
I’m denying without trying
Though I’m dying
Still call me Diane, 
be a friend, not an enemy
Numbered strengths, up the banks
So much energy
Let there be light, make me be right
Heat up the beat and let there be light

I’ve made the choice to use my own voice
Let there be light, oh let there be light

I’ve made the choice, it’s over
I’m believing
Colligate notes teasing
Scuse me while sneezing, 
Scuse me while breathing
Maybe not
Maybe I could do it better, you damn snot
I dance hot, cause I’m damn hot to the hip hop
Or call it rap. Whatever, dude. I got your back.
I’m a half rap word trap, half music model
To attract but not attack
the minds to emcee lottos
Jackpot tomato
I’m happy for tomorrow
Let there be light and keep it going full throttle
Let there be light, that’s what I’m saying
that’s my motto
Let there be light and never shove it in a bottle

I’ve made the choice to use my own voice
Let there be light, oh let there be light

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring
My noggin can’t tell if I’m yawning in the morning
I fell too hard to even know there is a difference
Am I gifted? Can you tell me mother goose?
I choose to let loose
even though it cause me to lose
Like I drank a bunch of booze
Ooo, that was a doozy.
Who cares if my conscious
looks just like a scary movie?
Out of whack, fading into white and black
broken into pieces
some thieves stole my thesis!
Y’all a bunch of creatures!
Whatever can you teach us before I fade away?
Press stop before I play
Rewind! Rewind! Let sun shine today!

I’ve made the choice to use my own voice
Let there be light, oh let there be light

Make It Flow

Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes
every time it goes

Take the time to make it flow
To get it grown
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
from the top to the bottom
sick em in your pocket till you get em
till yah feel em
yah feel like you steal em
even though your not a vilian
cause your giving a back
a rap-a-rat-a-tat
charismat, antzy-pants democrat
Oh-mama, Oh mia
I herald you, I see yah
But see I'm 25 and still fully alive
taking deeper dives and risking more lives
breaking out in hives
more like high fives and lives shows
everyone you know should be there
unless it blows
but that's the way it goes my rap career
I can pull out in front
or burn it in the rear
but that's my dark fear
and we won't go there

Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes
every time it goes

Cause I'm a super trooper
driving in my Couple de Ville
sippin' on tea, eating bread
and just chill
actin' serious enough
to make you wanna scream
though not enough
to wake you from your scary dream
so I'm in balance showing off my true talent
a heavy weight to lift but I practice enough
my muscles sorta tight
I'm not buff, I'm just tough
Not from the projects
and I'm not an object or topic of discussion
I just like the percussion
and gut-crushing melodies
pleasing the ear
must-loving harmonies no reason to fear
here, grab a beer
I'm with you, I care
I can handle drunkenness unless you don't spill
I'm never sick or tired
I just look like I'm ill
a Mill to the e-r a D-i-a-n-e
clap your hands
and ring the powers that be

Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes
every time it goes

Cause I don't put my brain on backwards
and I'll always be the one to laugh first
like Busta, I got you all in check
With that head nod shit
that make you break your neck
Woo-ha!
Leveled of the courage
I'm a cover girl and worth it
Iike a magazine I'm picture perfect
Cause I hide my dirty fingernails
and my body smells
my hobbies entail
my looks should prevail
but that don't matter
when your rhymes are phatter
and your Filipino blood takes over the white
Eminem take your hands off of the mic!
I'm not in flight though I look like I might
so I'll kiss my pretty girlfriend
off to my right...or left, whatever
I guess we're all human
at least that's what I'm assuming
but if your in this room and not dancing to this stuff
I will call your bluff.
Yes, I will call your bluff!

Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes you feel it tingle in your toes
Take the time to make it flow
every time it goes
every time it goes

Time

More personality
curves to make you smile at me
desires burning wildly
words from a higher be-
ing or zing or mild, please
take it in a file
and organize my style to look less like a child
And sound less like one too
mmm-bop is not my tune
it's words can make me blue
so I write this one for you
my words forever true hard as I can ever do
I can never lose as long as I stay smooth
sweet success to levitate
help I need and I will take
give me time and give me strength
make my mind without the length

Decide, design, align
all I need is time, 
all I need is time,
all I need is time
And patience is a virtue
don't let it hurt you
don't let it, don't let it

Decide, design, align
all I need is time,
all I need is time,
all I need is time
And patience is a virtue
don't let it hurt you
don't let it, don't let it

Decide in a second
outside wreckage
off my deck and off neck
Inside my head and out your mind
caution with the slippin' time
decide with a imagination
fight for your creation
cause mine is testing patience
so stick out your straw
and stake it
hanky panky, Hilary Swanky
Oscar-nenom calling me home
Wanna see gold? Wanna see God?
Not yet, Lord.

Can I not sound desperate
though I want to get it
though I sweat on my forehead and my arms pits
so pity me, don't get to me
I'll turn my back on history
able to cry "emcee D!
When you go-and-get clothes for free?
Shoes and tees please
so I'm the bees knees!
Drive over in my rover
and come over you tease!"

I Guess Not

Oh yeah I told you
Oh yeah I told you
How I can’t hold you like I want to
so I’ll scold you
Because I guess it’s not my time
I guess it’s not my time
I guess it’s not my time

If I put my face in the sky
Will I get attention when I die
Or a pity cry cause I never said goodbye?
Cause every time I turn around I face new catch
A foreign hook,
a figure laying lookin' like he’s death
What a mess, I must confess
I’m glad I’m not that figure
I am a bull and bigger, hell of a singer
Dead ringer for a rapper
singing rhymes, dodging flats
Dancing, not a tree,
swinging fists and leaning back
As a matter of fact, I’m more phat than your track
Not black, but I always try to emulate it in raps
It’s how I live the dream
deeper than it ever seems
Cause the greens in my Benjamin’s
Are in the distance of my pendulum
Ahem, can I ask when?
I guess not.
Is it a future task?
Then I’ll reach for the top
and hope I don’t drop
But for now I guess not

Oh yeah I told you
Oh yeah I told you
How I can’t hold you like I want to
so I’ll scold you
Because I guess it’s not my time
I guess it’s not my time
guess it’s not my time

But what’s in the corner
Affordable relief?
A forum place for drugs
or the dodgy end of beef?
Cause if I choose to sink my teeth
and swallow my own beliefs
My hair won’t be so tangled
My feet won’t be so mangled
Cause I’m not a tiger, not a Bengal
I’m dangled in distress, guessed energy
Dismissed by enemies
Confessing towards stressin tendencies
feeling me?
Cause what do I got to do to get me to be me?
Cast a spell to not look like hell?
By morning’s when we’ll delve, not denigrate
Trust me, it’s not my fate.
I’m getting old and gross
my younger years are toast
I’ll never brag nor boast the ghost that I gave up
Cause the glass is half full in my cup
Unartificial, be my official
Cause you and me we are judicial.
But is a crisis non-existent where my life is?
is a crisis non-existent where my life is?
I guess not.

Oh yeah I told you
Oh yeah I told you
How I can’t hold you like I want to
so I’ll scold you
Because I guess it’s not my time
I guess it’s not my time
guess it’s not my time

Hey There, Neighbor (Two Cents In)

Neighbors from the village
put your two cents in
Senators, name your position
and put your two cents in

Come on, barrage me
with your silly mirage
and spin the tires till they squeal
lay flat, it's a massage
what's your message, anyway?
to bore me to tears?
to freak my whole world,
turn my worries into fears?
I'd rather close my ears
so keep it to yourself
I read that somewhere
that it's good for your health
Believe me I can ramble
and so can you
but I'm so overwhelmed
from being soaked in you

Teachers, turn into preachers
put your two cents in
Lovers, tell me your worries
and put your two cents

Boom check-a-lecka!
Ooo! Speak no peace!
I heard that before that the
2's the new 3
4G LTE media disease
Tech nano ipod
so call the Twitter police
and take your pennies
to the panty store
you're so damn soiled
and if your feeling more ambitious
Go all in and be spoiled
whatever floats your boat, boys
comment or be lame
too bad your two cents are just
one in the same

Neighbors from the village
put your two cents in
Senators, name your position
and put your two cents in
Teachers, turn into preachers
put your two cents in
People, who are we kidding?
Put your two cents
Put your two cents in!

Take The Stairs

This time I'll take the stairs
Instead of going nowhere
I'll get up in the air
without a thought or care
This time I'll take the stairs
This time I'll take the stairs
To get from here to there
Without a thought or care.
