"Diamond On Your Hand" as written by and Antje Duvekot....
You've been following your compass
Putting in your two cents
Still feel like you're walking in a shoe box
Mapping out a dead end

In the uncharted countries
Out on ecstasy's borders
You have seen the reflections

There's laughter in your cities
Light bulbs in your attics
Stand against the darkness of the outback
The darkness of the road
In the depths of your dreaming
In the cracks in the ceiling
You have seen the revealing

What if the diamond on your hand
Was just a common ten cent ring?
What if your ice castles melt down to water?
What if your great walls remained
As little more than cellophane
At the end of the day?

When you move out
Of the desert everything changes
Back then you had no regard
For all that you came with
Now the sun is setting
On the unmoved faces
Of your own congregation

What if the diamond on your hand
Was just a common ten cent ring?
What if your ice castles melt down to water?
What if your great walls remained
As little more than cellophane
At the end of the day?

Still no rockabye
Sing out your lullaby
Cause you will never know why
Your truth is your brother's lie

What if the diamond on your hand
Was just a common ten cent ring?
What if your ice castles melt down to water?
What if all your matches
Burn down to your fingertips

Without ever lighting a fire?
What if your great walls remained
As little more than cellophane
At the end of the end of the
End of the day?
