Breakfast’s Twin Peaks Inspired “Diane” Gets Andy Warhol Screen Test Video

Breakfast - Diane (inspired by Twin Peaks)

She’s some sort of all-seeing angel narrating the chorus,Breakfast tells Welcome to Twin Peaks about the titular character of their new single “Diane”. Before you assume this synth pop ballad is named after Dale Cooper‘s mystery assistant, the L.A. band points to the love triangle between Norma, Hank and Ed as the main source of inspiration:

Diane basically killed her husband with the help of her lover. It’s an extreme alter-reality of Norma’s situation. Towards the end of the song, she’s not sure if what she did was right.

Don’t worry, the song is more uplifting than that last sentence would make you believe, and it is ridiculously catchy. Diane, who is actually a waitress —and now we’re thinking of David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive!— even gets an angelic face in a retro sing-along lyrics video inspired by Andy Warhol‘s Screen Tests. Check it out and share your comments!

Breakfast – Diane (Lyrics)

And I stopped there the other night
“Come to the diner at half past eight,” she said
Waitress works there night and day and night
Behind her blood-stained eyes
Love and murder

Just met the other guy
He’s six feet tall and kind of shy
A victim of the same surprise as me
Behind our blood-stained eyes
Love and murder

Rain falls and when it does then
I know one thing~there is a god
He’s not happy with you, but
One calls out between two worlds
singing “fire walk with me”

And I don’t want to second guess
a whole life spent with you
And I would rather reminisce
with a bullet in my chest than be with you

Cause it hurts to smile
and I’m stuck in denial
cause my heart’s with you
And he walks out the door
and my heart starts to pour with empathy

Rain falls and when it does then
I know one thing~there is a god
He’s not happy with you, but
One calls out between two worlds
singing “fire walk with me”

Hey
Did someone say that
the sun is rising
when it’s really setting?

Hey
When you catch them,
do they blame you
for their shortcomings?

Please, please
come down, down, down
It’s only in my dreams
You’re the one
You’re the one
