Phantogram – Mouthful Of Diamonds

NY duo Phantogram take us on a beautiful nature walk while performing their song “Mouthful Of Diamonds”, from their debut album Eyelid Movies. This version was filmed during their appearance at the Converse Presents Gone To Governors free concert series in NYC, summer 2010.

Song lyrics:

Wake up, you’re gettin’ high on your own supply
Oh, baby, you’re still alive when you could’ve died, oh
The world is not around because of you
You know I’m not around because of you

You’ve got a mouthful of diamonds
And a pocketful of secrets
I know you’re never telling anyone
Because the patterns they control your mind
Those patterns take away my time
Hello, goodbye

Wasted, you tell the truth when you could’ve lied
And troubles are on the rise cuz you’re in disguise, oh
And if it isn’t me then pack your bags and leave
I wish I could believe those devils won’t take you back
Out to the salty sea

You’ve got a mouthful of diamonds
And a pocketful of secrets
I know you’re never telling anyone
Because the patterns they control your mind
Those patterns take away my time
Hello, goodbye

I wish I could believe…
