Red Hot Chili Peppers – Monarchy Of Roses – Lyrics – Video

The crimson tide is flowing thru
Your fingers as you sleep
The promise of a clean regime
Are promises we keep

Do you like it rough I ask
And are you up to task
The calicos of Pettibon
Where cultures come to clash

Several of my best friends wear
The colors of the crown
Mary wants to build it up

And Sherri wants to tear it all back down girl
The savior of your light

The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses

The cross between my former queen
Her legendary stare
The holy tears of Ireland
A lovely cross to bear

Several of my best friends know
The secrets of this town
Mary wants to raise it up
And Sherri wants to spin it all around girl
The sailors of the night
The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses tonight

Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
The story knows that I will never taunt you
Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
They story knows that I will always haunt you
