The Cat Empire Lyrics

Stolen Diamonds by The Cat Empire


Now that the sky is broken I can feel the light come shining in
Won’t you stay 'til this shadow pas*es over my pyramid
Nothing can be untrue if you tell people it isn’t

I’ve been smiling someone else’s smile
I’ve been clenching someone else’s fist
I’ve been singing someone else’s song
Threw my spear in someone else’s mist

One day you’ll wake up, wake up, wake up
And you’ll find you’re not invincible at all
But you still walk out into bright lights
Every heart is cheering for you
Now that it’s you’re birthday you’re the king of stolen diamonds
That’s what you are

That’s what you are

I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma
I’m going to keep on telling myself that until the earth goes flat

Inside each mirror you will find a thousand silver daggers sheathed
Inside each lighted window you will find a thousand swords
Behind each TV screen you've got a whole domain of thuggery

I’ve been looking into strangers’ windows
I’ve been throwing glas* into the sea
I’ve been cutting someone else’s hair
I’ve been sweeping up the house of thieves

One day you’ll wake up, wake up, wake up
And you’ll find you’re not invincible at all
But you still walk out into bright lights
Every heart is beating for you
Now that it’s you’re birthday you’re the king of stolen diamonds
That’s what you are

That’s what you are

I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma
I’m going to keep on telling myself that until the earth goes flat, earth goes flat

I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma

One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake
One day you’ll wake up, wake up

I used to think that I was psychic now I don’t remember why
Now all the silver threads from all the spiderwebs are flickering in the sky
Why did you smash your bourbon on the rocks across the rocks across the road outside?

I’ve been smiling someone else’s smile
I’ve been clenching someone else’s fist
I’ve been singing someone else’s song
Threw my spear in someone else’s mist

One day you’ll wake up, wake up, wake up
And you’ll find you’re not invincible at all
But you still walk out into bright lights
Every heart is cheering for you
Now that it’s you’re birthday you’re the king of stolen diamonds

One day you’ll wake up, wake up, wake up
And you’ll find you’re not invincible at all
But you still walk out into bright lights
Every heart is cheering for you
Now that it’s you’re birthday you’re the king of stolen diamonds
That’s what you are

I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma
I’m going to keep on telling myself that until the earth goes flat
That’s what you are

I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma, I'mma
That’s what you are
