[Verse 1: Kanye West] Good morning, this ain't Vietnam still People lose hands, legs, arms, fo' real Little was known on Sierra Leone And how it connect to the diamonds we own When I spit the diamonds in this song I ain't talkin' 'bout the ones that be glowin' I'm talkin' 'bout Roc-a-Fella, my home My chain, this ain't conflict diamonds Is they Jacob? Don't lie to me, man See, a part of me sayin', "Keep shinin'" How? When I know what a blood diamond 's Though it's thousands of miles away Sierra Leone connect to what we go through today Over here it's a drug trade, we die from drugs Over there they die from what we buy from drugs The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charmses I thought my Jesus piece was so harmless 'Til I seen a picture of a shorty armless And here's the conflict It's in a black person soul to rock that gold Spend your whole life tryin' to get that ice On a Polo rugby it look so nice How can something so wrong make me feel so right? Right? 'fore I beat myself up like Ike You can still throw your Roc-a-Fella diamond tonight Because [Hook] [Verse 2: Kanye West] People askin' me is am I gon' give my chain back That'll be the same day I give the game back You know the next question dog, "Yo where Dame at?"
