Songfacts®:

  • "Beauty Of The Rose" has lyrics by lead vocalist Mia Zapata, and running to around 2 minutes 36 seconds was track six on the (for her) posthumous album Enter: The Conquering Chicken. According to drummer Steve Moriarty, it is about, "What it's like to be addicted, and it was about a friend of hers who was addicted to drugs." He added that the song was really a metaphor for greater truths, a familiar theme with Zapata. >>
