Track Name: Diamonds
Beautiful, the way they shine
Underground, beneath the light
Frozen in the kimberlite
Purest carbon, crystallized

Take hold in the young girl's mind
Pervert it, commercialize
Reinforce a need for likes
Let her know she's justified

Spellbound and hypnotized
A whole world, over-sexualized
Taking like moths to light
Seduced and delighted by
Track Name: Snakes & Ladders
More fire put in the barrel
More men put into battle
More debt than we will ever know

The old men up in the tower
Shake hands with those in power
The main plan: look out for number one

Some say it's all been written
We all play the part we're given
On the stage of water, wind and stone

The moments that really mattered
Were all spent climbing a ladder
And hoping for something more to come

The best way to be the best is
To take from all the rest and
Then fade into the setting sun
