Black Rose

Send the world a black rose
Tied to your heart
With a blood soaked
Tattered green ribbon
Let them see your tears
Don't hide the featherless wings
Stand tall, little girl
It'll be better soon

Fallen angel, cry for what's lost
Where has father gone?
Why are we alone?
Bare your soul to the wind
I won't let you fall

Drowning in this lake of crimson
Will they ever let you be free?
Have chained you down
All worry and doubt
Piling atop your shoulders
They turn you into Atlas
Stand tall, little girl
It'll get better soon

Fallen angel, cry for what's lost
Where has mother gone?
Why are we alone?
Bare your soul to the wind
I won't let you fall

Dark against the horizon
You stand so still
Why are you afraid?
Are they coming after you?
Stand tall, little girl
It'll get better soon

Fallen angel, cry for what's lost
Where has the love gone?
Why are we alone?
Bare your soul to the wind
I won't let you fall
