Monarchy of Roses

Album: I'm With You (2011)
  • 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 up to task?
    The catacombs of bet and bone where cultures come to clash

    Several of my best friends wear,
    The colors of the crown
    And Mary wants to fill it up,
    And Sherry wants to tear it all back down, girl
    The savior 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

    Several of 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 colors of the crown
    And Mary wants to fill it up,
    And Sherry wants to tear it all back down, girl
    The savior 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 say I'll want to
    The story of love that I'll 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'll always want you
    Hey Writer/s: MICHAEL BALZARY, ANTHONY KIEDIS, JOSH ADAM KLINGHOFFER, CHAD SMITH
