Diamonds of the Black Chest
- 0 Views
Since then he heard about the chest He's so wild he can't get no rest A million diamonds blinding his eyes Brighter than fire but colder than ice Sweat on his brow, greed burns his mind Hands like claws his teeth always grind Soaked by sweat he wakes up and screams "Oh, no, it was only a dream" Diamonds, diamonds Diamonds of the black chest Years and years he sought that chest He runs most every risk the man's obsessed For too many years he's roamed all the lands To feel the diamonds in his hands He find the hallow spot, breaking its lock He opens the gate which is carved of rock Finding the chest he exults and screams "Oh, yeah, it's no dream" Diamonds, diamonds Diamonds of the black chest He holds out his hands and he touches the chest He breaks its seals, he disturbs its rest Curious and slow he opens the lid He stares over the edge, what he sees he can't grip No diamonds but he sees own face A possessed wreck with an empty gaze Thrilled by madness he's dying in pain "No dream, he's insane" Diamonds, diamonds Diamonds of the black chest
