Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Bonus Track)
Kanye West

Diamonds are forever

They're all I need to please me

They can stimulate or tease me

They won't leave in the night

Have no fear that they might

Desert me



(Diamonds are forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

(Diamonds are forever)

The Roc is still alive every time I rhyme

(Forever and ever)



Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?

Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?



Good morning, this ain't Vietnam still

People lose hands, legs, arms for real

Little was known of Sierra Leone

And how it connect to the diamonds we own



When I speak of diamonds in this song

I ain't talkin' 'bout the ones that be glown

I'm talkin' 'bout Roc-A-fella, my home, my chain

These ain't conflict diamonds, is they Jacob? Don't lie to me mayne



See, a part of me sayin' keep shinin'

How? When I know of the blood diamonds

Though it's thousands of miles away

Sierra Leone, connect to what we go through today



Over here, it's a drug trade, we die from drugs

Over there, they die from what we buy from drugs

The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charms es

I thought my Jesus piece was so harmless



'Til I seen a picture of a shorty armless

And here's the conflict

It's in a black person's soul to rock that gold

Spend ya whole life tryna get that ice



On a polar rugby, it look so nice

How could somethin' so wrong make me feel so right, right?

'Fore I beat myself up like Ike

You could still throw ya Roc-A-fella diamond tonight, 'cause



(Diamonds are forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

(Diamonds are forever)

The Roc is still alive every time I rhyme

(Forever and ever)




Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?

Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?



People askin' me is I'm gon' give my chain back

That'll be the same day I give the game back

You know the next question dog, "yo, where Dame at?"

This track the Indian dance to bring our reign back



"Wassup wit you a Jay man, are y'all okay man?"

Yep, I got it from her 'ye damn



The chain remains, the gang is in tact

The name is mine, I'll take blame for that

The pressure's on, but guess who ain't gon' crack?

Pardon me I had to laugh at that



How could you falter when you're the rock of Gibraltar

I had to get off the boat so I could walk on water

This ain't no tall order, this is nothin' to me

Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week



I do this in my sleep

I sold kilos of coke, so? I'm guessin' I can sell CD's

I'm not a business man, I'm a business, man

Let me handle my business, damn



Kanyeez you got me, Freeway and Foxy

YG, Teairra Mari, Petey watch me

Bleek could be one hit away his whole career

As long as I'm alive, he's a millionaire



And even if I die, he's in my will somewhere

So he can just kick back and chill somewhere, oh yeah

He don't even have to write rhymes

The Dynasty like my money last three lifetimes



Shirley Bassey was in the rear sayin' exactly

What I was sayin' practically me whole career

The diamond is forever, I been minin' this forever

Now the Louis Vuitton Don's timin' couldn't be better



People lined up to see the Titanic sinkin'

Instead we rose from the ash like a phoenix

If you watin' for the end of the dynasty sign

It would seem like forever is a mighty long time

I'm young, bitches

(Forever and ever)

Goodnight
