Monarchy of Roses
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


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

MONARCHY OF ROSES

The crimson tide is flowing thru
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 cross 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, then say I want to
The story knows 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, then say I want to
The story knows that I will always haunt you
Hey.

Anthony looks like a more stylish version of Hitler 

Manolo Malaguitaman

Pause the video at 0:46 and look his greeting with the left arm. That also is bizarre hahahahhh

THESE COMMENT SECTIONS ARE A GOLD MINE

do you know how many times Hitler had to ask for validation in the mirror by his assistants that his mustache everything was nice and neat and straighten that he was handsome!?!? Do you know how much it took for that incorrigible childish man to feel like he was handsome!? Lol

Matt Szlaga

Take it back nothing was cuter than a little mustache!

Anyone else missing Josh even though you loved John and wanted him back too? I think Josh gave a fresh sound to the Peppers on I'm With You and then matured it on The Getaway. We'll miss you Mr. Klinghoffer.

They could've have lead and rhythm guitar if they kept josh!
