Monarchy Of Roses Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (0)



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 up to task
The calicos of Pettibon
where cultures come to clash

Several of my best friends wear
The colors of the crown
Mary wants to build it up
And Sherri wants to tear it all back down girl
The savior of your light
The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses

The cross between my former queen
sponsored links
Her legendary stare
The holy tears of Ireland
A lovely cross to bear

Several of my best friends know
The secrets of this town
Mary wants to raise it up
And Sherri wants to spin 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
Mary wants to build it up
And Sherri wants to tear it all back down girl
The savior of your light
The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses

Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
The story knows that I will never taunt you
Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
The story know that I will always haunt you

"Monarchy of Roses" is a song from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 2011 album I'm with You and the album's second single. The single is the follow-up to the number one hit, "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie". The single was released to radio and for download in the UK on October 7, 2011 and to radio in the United States on October 25, 2011.

In a September 17, 2011 interview on BBC Radio 2 with Anthony Kiedis and Chad Smith, the show's host, Justin Lee Collins broke the news that "Monarchy of Roses" would be the second single from the album and would be released on November 14, 2011. Neither Kiedis or Smith were even aware what song would be the next single and both seemed surprised during the interview. Despite the same date being also listed on the back of the promo single, the song was released weeks earlier to radio however the music video was, in fact, released on this date.

Although for years the band has strongly fought against having their music used in commercials or other promotional advertisements, "Monarchy of Roses" appeared in a 2011 Japanese car commercial for the Nissan Elgrand. From Wikipedia
