Blood Diamond

Did you ever wonder why the sky is blue or the carpet is red?
You handed away everything we could have had for a moment in the sun
15 minutes of fun
Perhaps your shoes grace that color because of blood that was shed

Years of bleeding dreams, broken hearts
A red river of failure streaming through forgotten parts

Was it all worth it in the end?
Did you get your big house with your validation parked outside? 
At the cost of a future, a family, a best friend 
How much did you actually end up paying for that ride?

As you walk down that isle 
That glowing row of flashes and smiles
You convince yourself you have nothing to lose 
But as you walk all over me, just don't forget to wash the blood off your shoes
