"Diamonds In The Mine" lyrics

Diamonds In The Mine

The woman in blue
She's asking for revenge
The man in white
That's you
Says he has no friends
The river is swollen up with rusty cans
And the trees are burning
In your promised land

And there are no letters
In the mailbox
And there are no grapes
Upon the vine
And there are no chocolates
In the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
And there are no diamonds in the mine

Well, you tell me that your lover
Has a broken limb
You say you're kind of restless now
And it's on account of him
Well, I saw the man in question
It was just the other night
He was eating up a lady
Where the lions and Christians fight

And there are no letters
In the mailbox
And there are no grapes
Upon the vine
And there are no chocolates
In the boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in the mine
You tell them now
And there are no diamonds in the mine

Ah, there is no comfort
In the covens of the witch
Some very clever doctor
Went and sterilized the bitch
And the only man of energy
Yes the revolution's pride
He trained a hundred women
Just to kill an unborn child

And there are no letters
In the mailbox
Oh no, there are no
No grapes upon your vine
And there are, there are no chocolates
In your boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in your mine

And there are no letters
In the mailbox
And there are no grapes
Upon the vine
And there are no chocolates
In your boxes anymore
And there are no diamonds in your mine
And there are no diamonds in your mine
