Instant Cash and Diamonds

I’m going down I go

Digging a gambling hole

My friend is drunk as hell

His fillings filled with gold


I cash my breakfast in

I throw my car keys down

I’m running out of state

Looking around I see it


Blinking on a neon sign outside my window, baby

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Here we go


I’m going down I am

My brains are full of bread

My friend is passed out cold

I left him in the red

I keep my devils warm

I keep my angels high

I keep my eyes on the bright horizon


And it’s blinking on a neon sign outside my window, baby

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Here we go


Goddamn I like my money cheap

Let me hear you say yeah if you're with me


My latest venture blowin' up into space

My dreams are climbing the steeple of a steeple chase

The cards I’m holding can’t help but fall in place


I pawn my children’s toys

I couldn’t stand the noise

The batteries were dead

I didn’t have a choice

I keep my omens good

I keep my ears to the wall

My hotel window always faces the strip


And there it’s blinking on a neon sign

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Instant cash and diamonds

Here we go
