Diamond Mind

lyrics

How’s your mind go? How’s it powered?
Is it a crystal? Or magic fountain?
Is it a diamond just like the sun? I
can see it shining in everyone. But
Frankenstein was not a clone, but
that don’t mean that you’re all alone and
if you could build it, would you do it?
A tough decision.

Have you made your mind up? Have you made it out of shiny stuff and diamonds in the rough and gold and dollar bills? I’m told that there’s a genius or a crazy old fool who sees that shiny stuff and diamonds in the rough and gold and dollar bills are old and just the stuff for fools to hold and touch, and we’ll discuss how thoughts are not jewelery, though some of them might shine like gold. You told all your friends about your crazy big ideas. It’s crystal clear that something here will be sold.

Dig deep in your mind there’s something there that you must find. And
when you finally find the diamond, time has been left behind. And
there’s a jewel-encrusted crown that tells you what to think and how
the world’s brightest minds are made: they started here in the darkest cave.
Yeah, that was just an average thought, and that was just a normal rock.
It sat for half a million years, it sat right here in this very spot!
A lot of layers laid on top; you feel the pressure building up.
You know that something’s changing there, so deep within your earthly lair.
I’ll dig a rock out of the earth. I’ll grasp it with my fingers first.
I’ll place it here atop my head, and then I’ll know and understand
that deep inside the mind lie precious rocks to be refined,
so will you find the time?

And have you made your mind up? Have you made it out of shiny stuff and diamonds in the rough and gold and dollar bills? I’m told that there’s a genius or a crazy old fool who sees that shiny stuff and diamonds in the rough and gold and dollar bills are old and just the stuff for fools to hold and touch, and we’ll discuss how thoughts are not jewelery, though some of them might shine like gold. You told all your friends about your crazy big ideas. It’s crystal clear that something here will be sold.
