Red Hot Chili Peppers – Monarchy Of Roses 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 calicos of pettibon where cultures come to clash

[Chorus:]
Several of my best friends wear, the colours of the crown
And mary wants to build 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

The cross between my former queen, her legendary stare
The holy tears of Ireland, the lovely cross to bear

[Chorus:]
Several of my best friends know, the secrets of this town
And mary wants to raise it up, and sherry wants to spin it all around, girl
The sailors of the night
The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses tonight

[Chorus:]
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'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
Hey

    It's so deep that it's very difficult to explain. I feel that it could be about how one chooses to live life and how people think it should be and different views and ideas of how it should be which should not have to be so complex. However you choose to live or perceive everything that goes on around you and how you think it should be dealt with; it's best just to let that go. It's best to just keep it all simple instead of making life so much harder than it should be and waging wars, kind of like coexist.

    Roses are a means to convey affection so the word roses is used in 'monarchy of roses'. But on 'we all want the rose' they are talking about the woman. I guess monarchy of roses might mean trying to win women over. It happens in our daily lives and almost everyone participates in it. It's all about winning girls over and it seems to be the only thing on people's minds. I guess we do put finding someone to love above everything else in our lives. So 'monarchy' having it govern our lives, seems to fit about right.

    Monarchy of roses was like a battle of two familes in great britain I believe like the battle of roses one side of red and one of white and mary was one of the queens that was married to king richard, who killed several of his wifes for not being able to bare children. I know I'm probably a bit off but that was a rough history lesson. If that is anyhelp your welcome ~blak.

    Each person has their own taste. Women and men alike. But if a man expects a woman to be all he wants her to be its just too much. No person is perfect and you could spend your life trying to find mr or mrs right but your always going to crave more. When you have your perfect match you start to envy your friends and that's the way the dating world works. Looking for the perfect person, and finding the second best who in reality is the best you can get. The song means that every person has their flaws and the flaws of one may conflict with what you see in other couples.
