Monarchy of Roses - Red Hot Chili Peppers

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 catacombs of bet and bone where cultures come to clash

(Chorus)
The saviour of love 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

(Chorus)
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

(Chorus)
The saviour of love 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
