Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

I Had a Dream of Diamonds



i had a dream of diamonds
blue and cut and bright
i carried them to denver
and lost them in a fight

i looked for them in memphis
and found them in a bar
my teeth turned into nickels
my eyes turned into stars

nothing is what it seems
nothing can sit still
nothing is forever
there's nothing in the will

i ran across the prairie
and stumbled to the coast
the water was like acid
i was the holy ghost

the tide was washing oysters
the sun was burning new
a woman held the answers
she gave me diamonds blue

nothing is what it seems
nothing can sit still
nothing is forever
there's nothing in the will

maybe in december
i will soar at night
the moon so cold and quiet
flying like a kite

my dreams are in the fire
burning memories of you
your hands rise from the embers
holding diamonds blue

nothing is what it seems
nothing can sit still
nothing is forever
there's nothing in the will

i had a dream of diamonds
blue and cut and bright
i carried them to denver
and lost them in a fight

i looked for them in memphis
and found them in a bar
my teeth turned into nickels
my eyes turned into stars

nothing is what it seems
nothing can sit still
nothing is forever
there's nothing in the will
