Think I'm stranded but I don't know where
I got this diamond I don't know how to shine
In the sun where the dark winds wail
And these children leave their rulers behind

    @mccaheyw2 I see what you did there ;o For those who didn't, Beck loosens girls up. I think. Maybe. I'll just shush.

    One of Beck's best to be sure. "And how can I make new again what rusts every time it rains? And the rain it comes and floods our lungs, We’re just orphans in a tidal wave’s wake. If I wake up and see my maker coming, With all of his crimson and his iron desire. We’ll drag the streets with the baggage of longing... to be loved - or destroyed - From a void to a grain of sand in your hand." I especially love the amazing breakdown that follows! Ahhhhh and ooooooo feels so good to sing after the charged emotional state this song puts me in.

    Beck = genius. Whatever sound he has at any particular time, it's always amazing.
