Islands – Rough Gem lyrics

The world beat you for
The something nice
You worked hard, died more
You mined what you died for
Diamonds di di di di di uh

You can whistle my name
It's the mines, in Africa
That are to blame
You can scoop out my brain
Shape it into an ear
And then tell me your pain

I've been awake from the first day
Stayed awake, stayed awake
The rabbit [unverified] the whole moon
Longer, short road

Dig deep but don't dig too deep
When it's late you'll see
The hole is empty and oh so deadly
They want me raw and smooth like glass
They want it fast but they don't want flaws
I'm a girl's best friend
Can you cut, I can cut, 'cause I'm a rough gem

Who lives in those lights in the distance?
Watered down, the rain will help you out
I had a dream, it was all a dream
But it was ruined by the sun shining in through me
