Diamonds And Guns
Transplants Lyrics


Bombs going off in Sierra Leone
Taken more shots than Karl Malone
Battle looms, your doom, injustice entombed
Who got the diamonds? Who gonna find them?
Who gonna mine them, when the time comes?
Diamonds and Guns, Diamonds and Guns.

[Chorus]
It's a wicked world that we live in
It's cruel and unforgiving
It's a wicked world that we live in
It's cruel and unforgiving

Knock, knock, knock, who's that? It's Momma, son
Lookin' for the bitch who took the money and run
Now the daylight's gone and there's no more fun
And who's the fuckin' bitch who stole all the heroin?
Heroin, heroin, it's all gone
Smoked it all up, and now you got none
And now you look around and that's not the plan
This is not what you had in mind

I shot in heaven, now I cry
No one lives forever, in fact we all die
From those who bust shots to those who stuff cops
To those who serve rocks on all the hard blocks

Every last soul must pay the last toll
In the dice game of life, who gets the last roll?
Is it the one with the suit? The one with the sack?
The one who hides behind his fuckin' gun and his badge?
Negative outlook? Well that's how I'm livin'
And like he said, it's a wicked world we live in
It's a wicked world we live in

I'm wiggin out, flippin' out, hearts is what I'm rippin' out
I'm slippin' out, I'm dippin' out, killin's what I'm livin' out
Pick 'em, let me pick 'em out, spin and let me whip it out
Gat to your face with the fuckin' bullets stickin' out
Missin' out, diss and bout, blood's what you're pissin' out
84 I'm Crazy Horse, shootin' up, I'm illin' out
Rippin' out, I'm trippin' out, different now, I'm pimpin' out
Any color at my belt and ouch while they're clippin out
Criminal I'm hittin' out, in L.A. no gettin' out
2 1 3, pack your P, fly wicked style
Listen now, I'm sinnin' out, a 6-pack I'm sippin' out

[Chorus]

Yo, representin no doubt
2002 baby transplants
WHAT! HA HA HA!

i really, really wish i was more down with Transplants when this happened.

because this is really rare pop music. it's bizarre. demented, even. that cuckoo clock coming out doing the "whoo-whoo" hook is BIZARRE, man.

so good. it's really dark, strange pop music set to a static, looping Hip-Hop beat.

and Tim Armstrong – i gotta say it – is a WICKED fucking frontman. obviously his work with Rancid's legendary and untouchable, but if i were a girl, man . . . Tim Armstrong in this video is fucking wicked. charismatic, troubled, dark . . . diabolical.

i should've been on this more when it came out. but back in 2002 i was still considering myself "punk", so to me this music was Rap Music, i.e. Shit. i was so fucking stupid.

and the fact that THIS pitched-black weirdness was then made into a billions-a-year hair-care Brand's® main ad hook is unbelievable.

it really is a wicked world that we live in.

These guys combined have very little hair, yet their song was used to sell millions of hair care products.

It's funny because I associate that song to a French ad for shampoo

Patrick

@Idfer Gott Travis still has that sweet mohawk though

True 🤣🤣🤣

Gotta support a serious heroin addiction somehow speaking from someone whos had one youll sell your soul to keep it going or in this instance your art to sell hair products love tim Armstrong but hair products is embarrassing they should be ashamed of themselves

In an alternate universe, this becomes a 2000s classic, and Feel Good Inc. becomes the hair song...

greg helm

This is a 2000s classic as far as I'm concerned!

Bulletproof monk made me love this song when I was younger lmao

R.T. McFly

Then one would have to suspend all natural rules and laws in this proposed universe, because this song sucks.

In an alternate universe me and you are sitting at a table laughing about how in another universe we ain't friends.
