(1) on "Nightfall Of Diamonds", Bob Weir sings something slghtly different here: it sounds like "Diamond bullets tearing up the night." Thanks to David Kudrav for pointing this out.` (2) on "Nightfall Of Diamonds", Bob Weir misses out this line and the next two, skipping straight to "Picasso moon, illuminate me"

Lyrics

South of Market in the land of ruin
You'll find all manner of action
Got your tinsel tigers in the metal room
Stalking satisfaction
They got them packaged up for love and money
Tatooed tots, chrome spike bunnies
Pop on my mirrored shades, the better to see
And roll on in, gonna roll in it, honey

I get a feeling like when big things collide
Like the crack before the thunder, like I really ought to hide
Here comes metal angel, she looks ready to ride
What's that she's tryin' to show me?
What's that she's tryin' to show me?

Picasso moon, shattered light
Diamond bullets ripping up the night (note 1)
Picasso moon, liberate me
Ah, life's infinite diversity
Great, amazing, majesty
And it's bigger than a drive-in movie, oo-wee
And it's bigger than a drive-in movie, oo-wee
