  • Chorus: I am the rose
    The rose
    I am the rose
    The rose with no flowers
    I am the rose
    The rose all thorns
    The mind he made
    The hand he touched
    The winter rose

    I who was blind and did not know
    Who searched for sickness in the sane
    Who tried to placate not to heal
    Was taken sharply by his pain
    He who gave me vivid roses
    Grown inside his gentle mind
    In his torment he discloses
    Worlds I never wished to find

    Chorus

    I gave him lies for all his truth
    And sent him to his spirit's death
    And gave him hope when all was lost
    And stole the flower that took my breath
    He who gave a gift of flowers
    Rests in quiet darkness now
    Silent are his special powers
    Blank his once-expressive brow

    Chorus

    I was a coward in his cause
    His was the courage and the care
    He who was hopeless learned to trust
    I who could help him did not dare
    All I did was let him founder
    All-unknowing on the reef
    Gave him a lie to make it easy
    And stole his selfness like a thief

    Chorus

    I am an ashen desert land
    I am a barren thorny stem
    And as a coward cast my lot
    With all the cowards known as "them"
    All the cowards call me hero
    All the heroes have been stilled
    Still their vengeance sings the silence
    Points to hungers left unfilled

    Chorus
