Holy Diver

by

Dio



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song is about Satan, and his descent to Hell (his "dive"). The lyrics deal specifically with Revelations 12:9 where Satan was cast to the earth. The tiger is symbolic of the wild beast that comes out of the sea, as mentioned in Revelations 13:1. (thanks, Light - lanburry, England)
Dio is Ronnie James Dio, the replacement vocalist for Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath and the original lead singer in the band Rainbow. His solo career was far less successful than Ozzy's, and there was some animosity between the two, but when Dio died of cancer on May 16, 2010, Ozzy released a statement saying: "I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Ronnie James Dio. Metal has truly lost one of its greatest voices."
In June, 2009, Dio told the NME: "'Holy Diver' is the metal tune that will not die. For some reason, that album and the song really hit a chord with people. Killswitch Engage did a version of it and I saw them do it at a festival recently where the reaction to their version was wonderful. But it's not something that gets resurrected every once in a while, it's just always there. I guess it's because good songs always work. What usually happens when people in bands meet me for the first time and they're fans is that they'll sing [adopts a self-mocking high pitched voice] "Hoooly Diiiiiver" at me! It happens all the time and it‚s very touching.
This song was featured in an episode of South Park where Dio (in crude cartoon form) appears performing at an elementary school dance with a monkey on drums. In the same NME interview, Dio said: "When I heard South Park wanted to use 'Holy Diver‚' I was like No way! You're gonna completely destroy me, I'll be so embarrassed to see it. But they said they wouldn't because they were big fans and they didn't. They were very kind to me - not so much the drummer - but very kind to me! Plus, if you want to be an icon of some kind, you have to be in an episode of South Park." (thanks, DeeTheWriter - Saint Petersburg, Russia Federation, for above 2)
The album cover depicted Satan whipping a priest with a chain. The priest was shackled and drowning in a turbulent sea. This caused some controversy, although not as much as one might think.
This was covered, ironically, by Gospel singer Pat Boone on his In a Metal Mood album. Acknowledging the subject matter, the song ends with Pat reciting Psalm 23:4. Dio sang backup vocals this - he thought it was hilarious. (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada)
In 1989, Japanese video game company Irem made a game based on this song, featuring a protagonist who resembles Ronnie James Dio. The game was never released outside of Japan. (thanks, Douglas - Waterloo, England)

The lyrics are "you can hide in the sun 'til you see the light, oh we will pray it's alright"
nothing about "Christ" and Dio was NOT a satanist - get lives, the lot of you.
- Luke, Manchester, United Kingdom
Someone by the name of Nightrain50 came up with this interpretation on another website, I think he pretty much nailed it.

Holy Diver is about Jesus Christ's descent into Hades after being crucified.

1.Holy Diver= Jesus Christ descending into Hades, the realm of the wicked not the holy.

2.You've been down too long in the midnight sea= Midnight sea is Hades, the absence of God, God is light so this place is void of it.

3.Oh what's becoming of me= What are you doing here? You don't belong here, this is the realm of the wicked, you are holy, what are you planning to do to me(us)

4.Ride the tiger= tiger is a symbol for a couple things mainly Jesus Christ, but also followers of Buddha ride tigers to show their supernatural ability to overcome evil, Shiva the destroyer rode a tiger, and also Islam believes tigers punish sinners for God.

5.You can see his stripes but you know he's clean, Oh don't you see what I mean= Jesus Christ again, by his stripes we are healed, by his blood we are cleansed. Also they(those in hades) can see his stripes(his marks of crucifixion), the marks of a sinner, even though they all know he is clean(innocent)

6.Gotta get away Holy Diver= You need to leave this place, you don't belong here. You are innocent this is the realm of the wicked.

7.Shiny diamonds, like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue, something is coming for you= Jesus is a beacon of light in Hades, everyone can see him coming. Cats are a symbol of power and warfare, the black and blue is the absence of light and all encompassing pain. It stands for Hades.

8.Race for the morning= Run to Jesus Christ he is the morning star, Rev 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."

9.You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light, Oh we will pray it's all right= Hide in the son(Jesus Christ) until you see the light.(God the Father is the Light) we'll put our faith in Jesus that he will take us out of this place(hades) and to the light(God)

10.Gotta get away-get away= we have to get out of here, this place sucks

11.Between the velvet lies= velvet is gentleness or caution, often concealing strength or determination and a profit or gain beyond what is expected or due. Jesus is the velvet lie. His intentions are not clear. Satan has been fooled, he thought he had won when he had Jesus crucified, in fact he has sealed his own fate. Jesus is here to claim what's his. All the souls of the fallen that will but believe in him can now be saved from Adam until now. Remember all fell short of the glory of God but one(Jesus), this means that all the prophets of the Old Testament were not reaching heaven. Not yet, but they are now.

12.There's a truth that's hard as steel= Truth is the word of God. Steel is the sword of Jesus's mouth Rev 2:16 Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

13.The vision never dies= The vision is the law, Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, But happy is he who keeps the law. The law will never die because Jesus has finally fulfilled the law, allowing us to have eternal life with God through him.

14.Life's a never ending wheel= Death has been defeated. 1st Corinthians 15:56 "The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law." Romans *:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."


15.Holy Diver, You're the star of the masquerade, No need to look so afraid= Jesus played the part of the sacrificial lamb, allowing himself to be crucified for our sins. He was humiliated, mocked, beaten, and crucified when in reality he was God in the flesh, the lion, and could have called down the wrath of the heavens on his enemies. He didn't, he played the part of the masquerade(fooling Satan) allowing himself to fulfill the law and save mankind.

16.Jump on the tiger= take a leap of faith and believe in Jesus Christ.

17.You can feel his heart but you know he's mean= Jesus is the Lamb(Love and Forgiveness) be he is also the Lion(he will judge and punish the nonbelievers)

18. Some light can never be seen= 2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

19.Holy Diver, sole survivor, your honor's clean= Jesus Christ the only man to not fall short of the law but instead has fulfilled it. You are innocent, your honor is restored. The resurrection of Jesus Christ and all the souls who believe in him.

20. Holy Diver, holy diver, never cut in the middle coming after you= To have you garments cut from the waist down or your beard shaven was an insult put on someone who offended to make them appear a fool or as a slave. No one who comes after Jesus will be cut in the middle because our sins are paid in full by Jesus Christ himself.
- Jeremy, North Hollywood, CA
Seriously people,how do you contemplate the meaning of a song with incorrect lyrics? It is not "like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue" That doesn't even make sense!
It's "like the eyes of a cat in a BLACKENED ROOM" & "the vision never dies, LIKE SOME NEVER ENDING WHEEL" and this song IS a parody (for lack of a better term) of Christ dying. Many of the lyrics in several songs are either Biblical parodies, many specifically referring to the book of Revelations or have Satanic references. Dio was not into drugs. He was however very against religion. Not a proclaimed Satanist, but definitely had a dislike for the Bible, religion, and did not believe Christ was the son of God. Also the phrase is "you can hide in the Son till you see the light, "oh we will PRAISE ARISE" I believe, mocking Christ's resurrection.
Sorry, just had to get that off my chest, I have seen the same wrong lyrics on other sites as well. As a child of the 80's there were many groups who used satanic symbolism as a ploy. WE definitely could FEEL it in the music. There was a huge difference between the players and the true unbelievers.
- CJ, desmoines, IA
Acutally, this song is about Jesus Christ. Referring him as the ''holy diver'' ''You can see his stripes but you know hes clean'' Jesus had over 50 lashes 'Dont you see what i mean?' lyrics like 'we will pray its alright' and Lyrics like '' between the velvet, lies'' The velvet curtain in the bible was the curtain for the jewish pharisees that had killed him. AFter jesus dies it has tourn in two ''Theres a truth as hard as steel''.. ''Shiny diamonds, like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue, something is coming for you'' If you are caught up in worldly possessions, something is coming for you, Look Out! ''Holy Diver You're the star of the masquerade No need to look so afraid. some light can never be seen
- Kristin, Murrieta, CA
The guitarist for this album was an unknown named Vivian Campbell. He had some good licks and helped with the songwriting, and also did the 2nd album. Don't know what happened to him after that.
- Jim, West Palm Beach, FL
I care about Dio. I'm 79 years of age, but I love Ronnie James Dio's singing and the song "Holy Diver." There are several interpretations that could reasonably be made of the lyrics, but the same can be said of much poetry and lyrics whenever they were written. As a singer of classical music at one time, Dio had a voice that could have easily have been trained to sing anything. He was amazing. I only rediscovered Metal last spring (2011), but in the 1980's when my sons were teenagers I liked Judas Priest, I now realize because of Rob Halford's voice.
- Mary Jo, Raleigh, NC
all of you are so retarded, why would this amazing human being write songs about Ozzy and how in the world does it relate to his retirement, this song came out in 1983 so who knows when it was actually written, probably during the same time he Ozzy was still really rocking it. Who knows what this song is truly about. Did anyone ask Ronnie James Dio?
- Carrie, Dayton, OH
That's not Satan... that's Murray. He's not well known, but you have to know him if you like Dio. He's on other albums like Dream Evil (watching the kid in the bed being haunted by various creatures).

May one of the best voices in Metal rest in eternal peace.
- Leon, Chicago, IL
This song is about Ozzy. Ozzy is the Holy Diver. The Midnight Sea is a Bed and Breakfast in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Dio feels Ozzy has been too long in Florida, kicking back and not working very hard. He wants Ozzy to "ride the tiger" meaning get back to work. He says of Ozzy: "You can see his stripes but you know he's clean" meaning Ozzy is capitalizing on his reputation for being a party animal, but in truth he is just a boring family man. "Siny diamonds" (wealth) are like the "eyes of a cat" meaning and "something's coming for you" meaning Ozzy's wealth and security are just an illusion, no one is ever really secure. "Race for the morning, you can hide in teh sun til you see the light" another reference to Ozzy in semi-restirement in Florida. Refrain "Between the velvet lies" the lies of the record companies, "there's a truth as hard as steel" means metal will never be fully coopted as a commercial commodity. "The vision never dies, life's a never-ending wheel" means no matter how hard Ozzy tries to be a successful former star, the muse that drove him to be a great rock singer will always be present, and eventually Ozzy will have to return to work. "You're the star of the masquerade, no need to look so afraid" is a freference to all of Ozzy's album covers, where he looks terrified. "Jump on the tiger, you can feel his heart but you know he's mean" means that Ozzy should get back to work, he can fel what he's supposed to be doing, and defying the muse will result in something bad happening. "Some light can never be seen" refers to people holding up Bic lighters at concerts, it is a dumb idea because the band can;t see them, the spot lights are in their eyes.

continued comment number three... sorry for typos.. the tiger is of the exspansive energy to know he is clean is to know he is free of all contractive energy, to know he is hot, heat exspands cold contracts, to know he is mean, and to jump from the tiger, i feel this implies to not become attatched to your own personal intentions, as in jumping off, to say u know he is mean to me says, when we have attained the ability to ride the furociouse tiger of our intentions do so wisely for we just may get attatched to our intention so much and abuse our power. but what do i know, im just a stupid stripper, parodox is all around u, seek the harmony
- chalice the grail, portland< oregon, OR
continued comment,,,where one is whipped as punishment for thier sins, to say u can see he is clean to my self implies, he has stripes but it wasnt from a scourging of its wickedness, to get away implies the diver needs to cross from the contractive energy into the exspansive energy, between the velvet lies, everything is a lie but true enlightnment, the truth thats hard as steel, lifes a never ending wheel, to me says to not believe the illusion of this world of life and death, but that our souls are eternal something is coming for u, when one works toward crossing from the contractive energy to the exspansive, the contractive has a built in defnse mechanism to keep u in it, so on and so forth, yin yang the balance, to race for the morning to me implies the morning star, the light of devine love, it isnt light from the sun buit light of love, i see it sometimes myself. in the bible lucifer, whos name translatets to light bearer is referred to as the morning star, but so is jesus christ referred to as the morning star the light of the world, funny uh? me i kinda think its all bull cause to attain enlightenment you gotta forget all this crap, surrender all you have learned
- chalice the grail, portland< oregon, OR
i can only say what the song means yo me. holy diver... a diver is someone who dives into the sea of the unconscienceness, or subconscienceness, to bring to the surface, to the light of conscienceness the secrets of the unknown, being holy would make this particular diver above and separate from all other divers, neing down too long in the mid night sea, oh look whats becoming of me, gives reference that this diver had spent too long, perhaps diving to the deepest hiiden secrets and tghat man was suffering from the divers deeming absence, ride the tiger to me, points toward the Hindu Goddess Kali, who rides a tiger from wich she draws the furociouse power to bring to fruition her intentions, to see his stripes but know he is clean, stripes are given to scour wickedness as in a scourging,
- chalice the grail, portland< oregon, OR
Dio stated in many interviews as well as in Martin Popoff's book about Dio that the songs aims at making people think. Is God all good and Evil all bad? In view of what has happened with religion throughout the years, I believe it is absolutely justified to ask the question. And my answer is that Evil is definitively not as bad as people think.
- Laurent, Manama, Bahrain
I thought the song referred to Priests molesting kids and partaking in porn (vices). In the Video a priest is trying not to get caught after being out all night..(notice sex shop).
- Caesar, Corpus Christi, TX
This is a tricky one, but like most things, the truth is hidden in plain sight. The Holy Diver is YOU. The Bible mentions the word diver in a couple of passages, meaning many and varied. Diverse. Holy Diver's talking about God being in everybody and nobody knowing it. Holy Diver, You're the Star of the Masquerade. Some Light Can Never Be Seen.

good music and vocals but killswitch engage much better at guitar and vocals

- cookandfry, edmonton, AB
It's funny to see all these singers who are old dudes now (like me) admitting that the whole evil satan worshiping thing was just a gimmick to sell records. Funny how our parents used to say they were all going straight to hell.
- Rob, Duluth, GA
Bob, Boca Raton, those are called devil horns. Good song, btw. Dio rocks.
- Adam, Clinton Township, MI
rjd was so much better in this band than he was in black sabbath...im sorry but no one can repace ozzy.him and iommi made sabbath and they just werent as good without him...but it was 4 the better.ozzy was much better after he got kicked out.
- greg, slidell, LA
i think that the theori of - Skeletim fron New jersey (I supose that NJ means that^^)is the most valoid one, the idea of ride the tiger is to controle the wil beast, not to be controled by him. Tou must leave your belives and fears and being a stergth person of body and mind who controls his own live
- Musikero18_90, Vitoria-gasteiz (E.H), Spain
I think the Killswitch engage version is better but i do love Dios too
- Xavier, Schenectady, NY
I'm sorry Trey Kalamzoo... wow.... anyway, Dio is not reffering to spanish, but latin, and Satan is the holy diver so you contradicted yourself.
- Erik Johnson, Chatham, IL
Love this song. Dio is easily one of the most underrated heavy metal bands ever.
- austin, Bristow, VA
Satan is not on the cover. that's the holy diver. Duh. does anyone notice that God in spanish is "Dios"? So Dio is practically God to Spanish people.
- Trey, Kalamazoo, MT
Ronnie James Dio is the most important thing that ever happened to music. This is not an opinion - it is FACT.
Holy Diver is the greatest album ever made.
Again, not opinion - FACT.
Any analysis of the lyrics on this album are unecessary - GOD himself is speaking through Ronnie all through - and you all know it.
- charva, oreland, PA
south park used this on the episode where they have a school dance, i crapped myself laughing when i saw it, i beleive the episode is in season 3
- Beef, Quahog, RI
As someone who like most of Dio's songs, I can say this... listen to the music and don't pay too much attention to the lyrics, because they are most of the time just random nonsense about rainbows and dragons...
- Lundin, Stockholm, Sweden
Something people may not know is if you turn the DIO logo upside down, it reads DEVIL you have to look closely.....SPOOOOOKY!

whoa man....i thought killswitch made this song by themselves..i guess i was wrong! never heard it by Dio, but i love the killswitch version... it amazing!!!

Ride the Tiger is slang for injecting heroin because of the stripes on a syrige, and the drug is clean
Shiny diamonds is another drug
Eyes os a cat in the black and blue, are the marks of the injecting
He compares the religious dive to the experience of heroin
- Rael, SP, Brazil
There are two characters in this song: the tiger, and the holy diver. The tiger is the Sun God ("the cat in the blue is coming after you, holy diver") and the holy diver is an ordinary person who sees the hypocrisy of religion ("the velvet lies") and finds himself lost ("in the midnight sea" or darkness). There are "shiny diamonds" or stars as if "the eyes of the cat" were in both "the black and blue" or night sky as well as day. The impulse here is to get away from religion ("something is coming for you") but still seek that guiding light ("race for the morning"). The paradox is quickly realized ("you can hide in the Sun until you see the light"): that which he is running from he is also searching for. So, the conclusion is to "ride," "jump on," mount the tiger, taking personal control of his beliefs and rejecting organized religion. Generally speaking, things are not always what they seem. (Is the demon on the cover drowning the priest, or the priest drowning the demon?) The tiger looks dirty but there is nothing wrong with him. You can feel his love, but don't let your guard down. Finding balance is a recurring theme in Dio's works. The mythology is consistent. In Last in Line "two eyes from the east, is it the angel or the beast? the answer lies between the good and the bad." In Master of the Moon, looking at the "eyes" will "blind you." In I Am "I am like the cat, who always lets you know that I Am I Am..." (Note: the Sun rises in the east, has a blinding light, and is the basis of worship in many major religions throughout history including Christianity)

your a poser if u like this song just cause its on guitar hero. and also this song is not about a scooby doo epsdoe retard its about what it says, satan.

This song is actually about Episode #2 of the late 60's - early 70's cartoon series "Scooby-Doo, Where are you!". In the episode, the residential pothead, "shag" and his loyal mutt, "scoob" are startled by the appearance of a ghost-like figure coming out of the "midnight sea". A local underground band, Dio, was called upon to write this epic ballad for the chase scene in the cartoon. The song was so popular with the fans of Scooby-Doo that the writer's, Hannah-Barbarra, after recieving thousands and thousands of requests, contacted Warner Bros. Records. Warner gave Dio an opportunity to compose a record. Though none of the other songs were as comercially popular as "Holy Diver" they managed to go Platinum within their first year. The song is a playable Track in the popular Playstation 2 game, Guitar Hero Encore Rock's the 80's.

I wonder why noone else here though this song might be about drug addiction ... "you can see his stripes but you know he's clean", i.e. he still has the marks of using drugs, especially heroin, but no longer injects.
- Douglas, Waterloo
Uh... who makes these songfacts? Because I;m more than sure that this song is about some guy saving people from hell. Maybe it's just me. Also, chris and bob are completely wrong, because Dio is one of my favorite rock bands of all time, and i certainly care about what they say. anyway, i think Holy diver is a great song, but i really like The Last in Line and One Night in the City better.
- cory, seaford, DE
This song is about Dante's Inferno.
I recently wrote a song with my band about purgatory and used this book as a reference.
The cryptic chatter in this song reminds me of how Dante got lost in the Dark Woods and had to confront the 3 beasts. One of them was a Leopard which in my opinion is "The Tiger". I think the "Mid-night Sea" is the Well on the last level of hell, where the Devil is waiting and then Dante see the light and returns. Just a thought.

Sigh, there is no mutual hatred between Dio and Ozzy. When Dio was working with Sabbath, Dio and Tony Iommi had disagreements but it was nothing to do with Ozzy. In fact in his Stand Up and Shout anthology Dio says that he wrote "King Of Rock and Roll" for Ozzy. Don't you feel silly?
- nathan, perth, Australia
"ride the tiger" is a book by the fascist philosopher Julius Evola. I'm not insinuating that Dio is a fascist, but his lyrics contain many references to fascism, Nietzsche, etc. probably a coincidence.

whats all the stuff about "ride the tiger"??
- emmeline, plymouth, England
An album that should be in everyones collection. The cover itself is worth having, but with songs like "Rainbow in the Dark" which you can't top and "Holy Diver" it's music you can't deny.

This song asks one question: How can we be sure that the priest is the good guy? He might as well be the bad one.

As i heard from a friend of mine; the "Holy diver" is a man that was executed by a middle-age type execution. In 17'th Century(in the time of the men with the black,high-top hats), when people think that a man is a witch, they punnish him as: they tie a heavy stone to his leg with a rope, and trow him in to the sea. They wait there and, if the man can save himself and be back to the surface, they were sure that he was a witch, and then kill him there. But if he can't save from there and be back to the surface, the people know that he wasn't a witch! But in both situation the man dies;) So my friend told me that ,DIO tells about a man that wanted to be executed by that way... Dunno if it's true:)

Dio started that thing with his fingers that a lot of metal bands do..you know, that thing...that sign.
- Bob, Boca Raton, FL
actually, in dio's anthology he himself said that holy diver was a christlike figure of another dimension. he planned on diving into hell to save his people, but the selfish jackassesdidnt want him to leave them

The demon who is whipping the priest is not Satan-- it is Dio's mascot, a monster by the name of Murray (see also the covers of Dio's albums "Last In Line" and "Dream Evil")
- Rocky, Hillsdale, NJ
The only reason the album cover didn't cause too much controversy was because it was made by Dio. Honestly, ask yourself a very simple question: "Who really cares about Dio or what he does?"
