Track Name: Diamonds Aren't Forever
Diamonds aren't forever, diamonds aren't strong
They get the sidewinders on the crawl
I don't wanna be here, I don't wanna know
Why we have to worry about our bones

Diamonds can't be remade, diamonds can't be sold
All the people wonder, all they wanna know is
Why are diamonds flowing from her fragile eyes
Do they wanna protrude through her skin, it ties

Diamonds aren't forever, they know it's true
But I know you gotta be kidding when I say to you
Don't go down that cliff, don't go down that road
It's so shady and I don't wanna know

Diamonds aren't forever, diamonds they know what they're doing
They're all creeping through our skin
They're all creeping through our eyes tonight

Tonight we learn that no one's gonna take the blame for this murder
No one's gonna take the blame right now
Cuz diamonds aren't forever, diamonds aren't strong
They can break and bend and show withdrawal

If a woman wants diamonds then you give her some
But you'll learn the lesson that two doesn't make one
We can be the last hope of the forest
Turn themselves into shapes, dogs and florists
Track Name: Euthanasia
I wiped off my hands from killing that jerk
Down on the bathroom floor
One man is dead, another ahead
Who could ask for more
When I was young my killing was fatal
I was a lunatic
I never fit in with the childhood class
That strolled in my neighborhood
Now I am here at my mother's house
Chained right up to the walls
She said I'd be let go as soon as I settled down
And find myself a girl
Track Name: The Boyish Life
I am a lunar eclipse, I am broken
Why don't you understand me
Puking in a Japanese hotel
I am waiting for the car to start its fury on me
We are gonna go and get drunk tonight

Why don't you understand that placement is a thing of the past
I know it's true
Getting out of bed is like waking up
And showing that you're through with a job
I am so in love with the idea of you
Despite all of your glory
Why don't we just go and get drunk tonight

Why to be under a tree, I am a wolf
Full of fury, waiting for the understatement
Bells are ringing in my ears
Why don't you belong to anyone

I am all alone in the woods with the long, long-term goal
I know I'll just get drunk again
Track Name: Dinosaurs In Brooklyn
Oh my god there's dinosaurs in Brooklyn again
They're chewing skyscrapers like tinfoil and showing no regret
I wanna be the pleasure of your dreams, not him
Scholars going off, employing in central colleges
We were old and gray
We could've stayed that way if we wanted to

You found a knife on the floor, threw it away
Later discovering that it was the one of your grandfather
With self-employment you were showing no regret
Lately I've been nightmare-ing about you, not dreaming
You all want it away
I know I still owe you money but now it's gonna be okay

You were a reconciliation of a portrait on the wall
The skin on your arm crawled up your shoulder and showed withdrawal
You were probably my best invention yet and I know that
We meet before men on the sidewalk through chalk autographs
You were not my hope
The dinosaurs in Brooklyn showed no regret
Track Name: Let's Get Married
Let's get married, have a little house by the lake
Let's get married and drink our eyes and say
Let's get married, make a new Renaissance
Let's get married
I wanna be a part of you now

Let's get married and go into the hallway
Let's get married, kiss like school kids
Let's get married and make some sense out of life
Let's get married and make you all mine

Marred is the way I wanna be with you
Marred is the way it should be between me and you
Track Name: The Eighties
I fell off my motorcycle
I am falling in a spiral
I ripped my jean jacket
I forgot the groceries again

I started a fire in my living room
I turned the 8-speed fan on high
You collapsed your shoulders on my back
I heard this music in the room

I knew it all too well
I pierced my ear in your room
I bought a sofa at a garage sale
I knew I had to take down the snowman
Track Name: Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
Don't let the sun go down on me
I will return to you passionately
I will return this deed of recklessness and dreams
The newspaper articles are seen
Track Name: Diamonds Aren't Acoustic (Bonus Track)
Diamonds aren't forever, diamonds aren't strong
They get the sidewinders on the brawl
I don't wanna be here, I don't wanna know
Why we have to worry about our bones

Diamonds can't be remade, diamonds can't be sold
All the people wonder, all they wanna know is
Why are diamonds flowing from her fragile eyes
Do they wanna protrude through her skin, it ties

Diamonds aren't forever, they know it's true
But I know I've gotta be kidding when I say to you
Don't go down that cliff, don't go down that road
It's so shady and I don't wanna know

Diamonds aren't forever, diamonds they know what they're doing
They're all creeping through our skin
They're all creeping through our eyes tonight

Tonight we learn that no one's gonna take the blame for this murder
No one's gonna take the blame right now
Cuz diamonds aren't forever, diamonds aren't strong
They can break and bend and show withdrawal

If a woman wants diamonds then you give her some
But you'll learn the lesson that two doesn't make one
We can be the last hope of the forest
Turn themselves back into shapes, dogs and florists
