lyrics

I find the stones that blaze most bright
So often are flawed and twisted tight
In layers of yellow-grey pyrite
I think it's time I'd learned to see them right

All that glitters gold has quality unknown
Sand down the shining shell, the faded core may show
All I can see's not nearly enough for me
Lightning from the sky and poison in the tree

The outside looks healthy and alive
But under, the apple's worm survives
Inspired and borne by black insides
Now that I know you, I'll look for more next time

All that glitters gold has quality unknown
Sand down the shining shell, the faded core may show
All I can see's not nearly enough for me
Lightning from the sky and poison in the tree

All that glitters gold has quality unknown
Sand down the shining shell, the faded core may show
All we can spy's a fraction of you and I
Poison in the tree meets lightning from the sky
