Diamond in the Sleaze

This song is by Beck and appears on the single Nobody's Fault But My Own (1999).

Original video
A diamond in the sleaze
Down on bended knees
A thousand grizzled nerves
Hangin' loose at the ends

It's later than you think
It's gone before you blink
Out of the crosshairs
And into the crowd

Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?

How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go? Go?

A lion in the cage
Shakes his golden mane
He doesn't care who notices
Where he's gonna lie

You came to beg a meal
You're older than you feel
Keyboard of your memory
Is coming apart

It's a weight upon my shoulder
It's a weight upon my shoulder

How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?

I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go

The doctor takes a rest
Inside a hornets nest
Polaroids of patients
Who refuse to be cured

A life lived under glass
Stolen Cadillacs
Can you hear the saxophones
Peelin' the paint?

Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?

How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go? Go?

I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
