"Rough Gem is a song so insidiously infectious that trepanation may be the only way to 
it out of your head"

                                       - Pitchfork Media

Intro Chords F#/C#/Abm/B


F#                     Ebm
The world beat you for something nice
C#               B
You worked hard, died poor
F#                Ebm
You mined what you died for
C#       F#    B     C#
Diamonds di di di di di uh

F#                 Ebm
You can whistle my name
It's the mines, in Africa
That are to blame
You can Scoop out my brain
Ebm                          B          C#
Shape it into an ear and then tell me your pain


F#                       Ebm
I've been awake from the first day
B             C#
Stayed awake, stayed awake
F#                       Ebm
The rabbit linked up to the whole moon
B       C#
Longer, short road

Pre Breakdown: (in arpeggios) F#/B/Ebm/C#

Dig deep but don't dig too deep
C#                                    Abm             B
When it's late you'll see the hole is empty and oh so deadly
F#                                C#
They want me raw and smooth like glass
They want it fast but they don't want flaws

I'm a girl's best friend
Can you cut, I can cut, 'cause I'm a rough gem


F#                 B
who lives in those lights in the distance?
Ebm                           C#
why didntyou tell me the rain would help you out
F#             B
I had a dream, it was all a dream
Ebm                       C#                   F#
But it was ruined by the sun shining in through me
