Lyrics - Ashes To Diamonds


I've seen enough

The next time you better stay loose

There's plenty of government action in the neighborhood

It's a general uprisin'

See the men in gold

The P.M.'s bad man says give me one at a time


Ashes to diamonds

Taken all they find

Turning blood to gold

Won't let go

So damned hot

The next time you better slow down

If they catch you near the border

Then it's nothing short of dead or alive

Got your number son

Now we'll get your Capetown buddy

Then we're gonna take you out for a ride


The moon is on the horizon

This time you better stay low

There's nothing short of heaven

Going to help you when this hell starts to blow

There's a freeze on the lines herev

Nothing gets in or gets out

The only thing you see

Is what they show you in the government news


Ashes to diamonds

Blood to gold (repeat)
