"Gemstones" as written by and Adam M Green....
Gemstones cracking, cause we're just too strong
Drum-sized yearning 'cause the pressure's gone
Supervised love, crucified stuvs
Simmering red in the sex farm clubs
There's an exit to this desert
Dangling freely from the shingles in the snow
She's a show off, Xanax Zoloft
Blank faced footprints of the zebras in the glen

Cavemen humping in the sterling space pod
Drumstick pumpkin in the Starbucks courtyard
Gigolos dance, stepping on toes
Benedryl nights in the okay holes

There's an exit to this desert
Dangling freely from the shingles in the snow
She's a show off, Xanax Zoloft
Blank faced footprints of the zebras in the glen

Let's break into the labyrinth of lies
Let's dive off the end of his eyes
Hollywood hills, peppermint pills
I can still taste the grime that you stuffed in my gills

Oh Johnny, can't you set a place for Holly?
She's a wild one, she'll be staying for a spell
Till they find her, then they drag her down
To Barcelona! Down to Barcelona!
I'm a very funny boy, but I know not to say 'cha cha cha'
Dunkin' Donuts, give me Dunkin' Donuts!
She's a very funny girl
But I love that crazy bitch, alright!

    General Commentthis was the first song i heard by adam green as a solo artist. i loved him in the moldy peaches, and his new stuff is wayyy out there. i think physchedelics were definitely involved in the songwriting process, or maybe just green's way of life shining through his music. pharmeseuitical drug use is mentioned she's a show off, Xanax Zoloft

    gotta love the surrealism of the lyrics

    General CommentSome of these words are wrong:

    "Supervised love, crucified stubs."
    "Bling-faced footprints..."
    "Young Sid Pumpkin in the Starbucks courtyard."
    "Benadryl nights in the old K-holes."
    "I'm a very funny boy but I know what I just said, Chk Chk Chk."

    As with lots of his stuff, particularly off this album, it's about the NYC nightlife I think. There's more than a few drugs references: the aforementioned Xanax Zoloft, as well as a reference to the "K-hole" that users of Special K experience when they trip.

    Lots of it is also nonsensical mind. :P
