"Diamond in the Rough" as written by and Michael James Ness....
Well I've been up yeah
And I've been down
Been kicked around here
This god-forsaken town.
So many faults, so little time.
I've gotta find my piece of mind.
Peace of mind.

I was looking for somethin'
Anything at all.
Something to believe in.
Spray painted on the walls.
I've made mistakes yeah, I paid for them too.
What's a poor boy supposed to do.

There you sit like a diamond in the rough
You're dirty and you're damaged.
All you need's a little love.
But inside you sparkle, like the stars above.
You'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

There was a time when, I could not say
I got a reason to live another day.
Discarded treasure y'all passed on by
And I can understand the reasons why

There you sit like a diamond in the rough
You're dirty and you're damaged.
All you need's a little love.
But inside you sparkle, like the stars above.
We'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

There you sit like a diamond in the rough
You're dirty and you're damaged.
All you need's a little love.
But inside you sparkle, like the stars above.
We'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

Diamond in the rough
like the stars above.
All you need's a little love.
We'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough
Diamond in the rough
like the stars above.
All you need's a little love.

    General CommentThis song is about a total fuckup. Mike ness admitted he made a few mistakes along time ago and how he is past all the bad thoughts and looking into the future not the past

    General CommentOnly one comment?! Well I guess the meaning is no mystery. Beautiful song. Social D gets better and better as the years turn to decades. Can't wait for another album. Just heard that a new album should be released in 2016 so it should be out by 2020
