LyricsEdit

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 clothes 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 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 say I want to
The story knows that I will never haunt 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 say I want to
The story knows that I will always want you
Hey
