Beck – Diamond In The Sleaze lyrics

A diamond in the sleaze
Down on bended knees
A thousand grizzled nerves hangin' loose at the end
It's later than you think
It's gone before you blink
Out of the crosshairs and into the crowd
Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?
A lion in the cage
Shakes his golden mane
He doesn't care who notices where he's gonna lie
You came to beg a meal
You're older than you feel
Keyboard of your memory is coming apart
It's a weight upon my shoulder
It's a weight upon my shoulder
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
The doctor takes a rest
Inside a hornets nest
Polaroids of patients who refuse to be cured
A life lived under glass
Stolen Cadillacs
Can you hear the saxophones peelin' the paint?
Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
