Picture yourself in a flat by a cafe With skull-themed decor and no food in sightSomebody texts you, you text back quite slowlyA man with a flair for disguise
Rock solid cheekbones and collar up highTowering over your headGive him a hat with too many earflapsAnd he’s gone
Sherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamonds, ah
Follow him down to a bank by a fountainWhere posh money people have sad old school tiesEveryone smiles as he pokes through the doorwaysThe man who’s too tall to be sly
Gallery bodies appear on the shoreWaiting to be taken awayJump on the back of the monster of lore  But he’s gone
Sherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamonds, ah
Picture yourself in a road of a clinicWith mounting desire to find your allySuddenly someone is there on the rooftopThe man who now says it’s not lies
Sherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamondsSherlock in the sky with diamonds, ah
