The Diary of Jane
Breaking Benjamin Lyrics


If I had to I would put myself right beside you
So let me ask you,
Would ya like that? Would ya like that?
And I don't mind If you say
This love is the last time
So now I'll ask,
Do ya like that? Do ya like that?
No

Something's getting in the way
Something's just about to break
I will try to find my place
In the diary of Jane
So, tell me
How it should be?

Try to find out
What makes you tick As I lie down
Sore and sick
Do ya like that, Do ya like that?
There's a fine line
Between love and hate
And I don't mind
Just let me say,
That I like that, I like that

Something's getting in the way
Something's just about to break
I will try to find my place
In the diary of Jane
As I burn another page
As I look the other way
I still try to find my place
In the diary of Jane
So tell me
How it should be?

Desperate I will crawl
Waiting for so long
No love, there's no love
Die for anyone
What have I become?

Something's getting in the way
Something's just about to break
I will try to find my place
In the diary of Jane
As I burn another page
As I look the other way
I still try to find my place
In the diary of Jane

@PetesakeCS "Heavy Metal" is just a loose definition, don't get hang up on a simple word. What do you even think "Heavy Metal" is?
Originally it just means literally "distorted loud" guitar sound (compared to classic "clean" guitar sound like bues rock). But compared to modern Nu-Metal, the old Classic "Heavy Metal" from the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's was not very heavy at all, it was only in Standard E tuning, just with destrotion. Meanwhile modern Metal uses heavily downtuned gutiars, which make it much harder riffs.

The old Classic Metal was only called "Heavy Metal" at that time because the distortion technique was a very new sound in the 1960's for the first time using an amplifier (AMP) to make the guitar distorted and louder, which was a very different sound compared to the normal "clean" sound of the 1960's blues rock (which was the only way guitar were used before they started experimenting with distortion), this changed the sound of guitar music forever.

You have to remember that "Metal" as a genre didn't even exist before the 1960's, that's why it was a very new thing when they started to use AMPs to make distortion on guitars for the first time. It was like discovering a completely new sound at the time that never existed before, which is why it blew up so quickly and became so popular.


But still, the fact remains that the old Classic "Heavy" Metal was only in normal "Standard E" tuning which is very soft so it was not very heavy at all, it was much weaker compared to modern downtuned Metal. In fact even modern Hard Rock with downtuned riffs is arealdy much heavier and harder than the Classic "Heavy Metal" from the 1980's. This song "Diary of Jane" is such an example, it is already harder and heavier than any song from the 1980's, even though this is only "Hard Rock" (with Nu-Metal riffs).

The old Classic Metal with Standard E tuning was obviously much softer and weaker compared to modern downtuned Metal such as Nu-Metal (and everything that followed after the 1990's such as Metalcore and Hardcore Metal) when bands started to tune their guitars much lower in the 1990's to create a darker and deeper sound.


For example "DROP D" tuning which is 1 step lower than Standard E, followed by "DROP B" tuning which is 2 steps lower (often used by modern Hard Rock like this song "Diary of Jane" by Breaking Benjamin), then comes the Drop C tuning which is 3 steps lower and then comes DROP A tuning which is 4 steps lower and finally the DROP G/F tuning (mostly used in modern Metalcore and Hardcore Metal) which makes the guitar sound a lot more heavy, aggressive and brutal than it ever was before.

Nu-Metal is pretty much one of the heaviest and hardest Metal-genre in existance, only Metalcore (including all other "cores") is heavier than Nu-Metal, but other than Metalcore the Nu-Metal is still the 2nd most heavy Metal genre and definitely much heavier than any Classic "Heavy Metal" bands ever were. Just because modern bands are not called "Heavy Metal" anymore, doesn't mean that they are not heavy. It's quite the opposite in fact. Modern Metal bands with downtuned guitar riffs and aggressive screaming are much heavier than the old generic Metal bands.

So don't get hang up on a word, you can not deny the fact that modern Nu-Metal and Metalcore (and even modern Hard Rock with downtuned riffs) are much heavier than the old Classic "Heavy" Metal before the 1990's. Just because they are called different names today doesn't change this fact.
