Red Hot Chili Peppers
Monarchy of roses

The crimson tide is flowing through 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 on to task
The? calicoes of Pettibon where cultures come to clash

Several of my best friends wear, the colours of the crown
And Mary wants to fill it up, and Sherry wants to tear it all back down, girl
The saviour of your light, the monarchy of roses, the monarchy of roses tonight

The cloth between my former queen, her legendary stare
The holy tears that I am in, the lovely cross to bear

The saviour of love my best friends know, the secrets of this town
And Mary wants to raise it up, and Sherry wants to spit it all around, girl
The sailors of the night, the monarchy of roses, the monarchy of roses tonight

Several of my best friends wear, the colours of the crown
And Mary wants to fill it up, and Sherry wants to tear it all back down, girl
The saviour of your light, the monarchy of roses, the monarchy of roses

Hey yeah, we all want the rose you know
I said, hey yeah, show us love before you go
Say I will, and then I'll say I want to
The story of love that I will never taunt you

Hey yeah, we all want the rose you know
I said, hey yeah, show us love before you go
Say I will, and then I'll say I want to
The story of love that I will always want you
