Lyrics

DIAMONDS AND DEMONS
John Beeney

Here comes Nebraska and Idaho
and a broken down bus from Buffalo
36 Britneys and all the rest
showing off their new fake breasts oh yes
they're dressing to impress

Cuz this town is full of diamonds and demons
and it's painted with the pretty faces of past seasons
so hurry up and get in line
and pray for the sun to shine
cuz you've got so little time here in the mine of diamonds and demons

I know a guy who might like you just fine
he's got his own studio at Hollywood and Vine
do a little something nice for free
he might get you on TV oh yes
ain't this town the best?

Cuz the streets are full of diamonds and demons
and they're paved with the pretty faces of last season
so hurry up and get in line
and pray for the sun to shine
cuz you've got so little time here in the mine of diamonds and demons

You're still in line but you're behind
you tell yourself you're doing fine
you've tried so hard to hide the scars
but you're still working at that bar
pushing beer under the leering eyes
of men that you despise
and now the weeks have turned to years
and you're still here, dear

Where the streets are full of diamonds and demons
and you're one of the pretty faces of last season
someone took your place in line
you're dying on the vine
so drink up now it's closing time here in the mine of diamonds and demons
