"Liquid Diamonds" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Surrender then start your engines
You'll know quite soon what my mistake was
For those on horseback or dog sled
You turn on at the bend in the road
I hear she still grants forgiveness
Although I willingly forgot her
The offering is molasses and you say
I guess I'm an underwater thing
So I guess I can't take it personally
I guess I'm an underwater thing
I'm liquid running

There's a sea secret in me
It's plain to see it is rising
But I must be flowing liquid diamonds
Calling for my soul at the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker with the rest of the stragglers
Calling for my soul at the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker with the rest the rest
And if your friends don't come back to you
And you know this is madness
A lilac mess in your prom dress
And you say

I guess I'm an underwater thing

I go I go inside her shell
I see it so and you're doing oh so well these days
You do it again and I say it's coming back again
Something like the saturdays such was it
Can you bring me those jeans
Keep it back daddy's done preaching in to himself
Keep it just between us
It's liquid
Liquid
Liquid

    General CommentI might add that the phrase "liquid diamonds" came from The Sandman (Tori is big Sandman fan, and is good friends with Neil Gaiman, so reference is obvious).
