Lyrics
Rosa

He's sitting on a pedestal, and he's humming, something, about truth.
His face is painted red, his eyes are closed, he's shaved his head, holding a rose.
Nothing ever held the beauty than that of a rose; it's thorns, and shiny red skin, it's particular perennial vines.

Rosa:

Foetida. Carolina. Banksiae. Dumalis. California. Canina. Chinensis. Glauca
Majalis. Laevigata. Gigantea. Multiflora. Rubiginosa. Rugosa. Virginiana. Gallica

He's rotating on a pedestal, knowing very well; roses are for lovers, and roses are for death. Roses are for birth, and for church, in romantic weddings. Roses cut their wounds, on a lovers hand. Roses fill rooms, with the smell of youth. Roses spring to life, until they bow, and rapidly fade away.

Rosa:

Foetida. Carolina. Banksiae. Dumalis. California. Canina. Chinensis. Glauca
Majalis. Laevigata. Gigantea. Multiflora. Rubiginosa. Rugosa. Virginiana. Gallica

A cut to your finger. Red meets red. Everything is red. Red meets red.

Rosa:

Foetida. Carolina. Banksiae. Dumalis. California. Canina. Chinensis. Glauca
Majalis. Laevigata. Gigantea. Multiflora. Rubiginosa. Rugosa. Virginiana. Gallica
