The Flower With No Petals (new song)

The flower with no petals
________________________

Remember when I handed you those flowers in front of the whole school
Hoping you’d take me down from this tower, I was dreaming like a fool
But I guess, my breath of true love just wasn’t enough for you
So then this news of death must not be very rough on you

I wouldn’t even ask if I could just stop by to say hello
‘Cause I know that the answer would be No! No! No! No!
So drown me, just drown me, by your school pool party
Without a sound, it’s just too hard on fools like me

Who else would want you to not be drunk
Think of you more then just a slam-dunk
Don’t ever think about me again
But I’m not gonna be here when
You need a friend to hold
In the end, in the cold

He left you, left you there to bleed
But you wouldn’t dare even look at me
I dare you to at least take a peek at me
Only I know what you need

And you were the one I needed
The one I wanted to bleed with
The one that when the other was almost dead, and bled out all over the floor
You or me could just donate some blood and there would always be more

Remember when I handed you those flowers in front of the whole school
Hoping you’d take me down from this tower, I was dreaming like a fool
But I guess, my breath of true love just wasn’t enough for you
So then this news of death must not be very rough on you

I wrote my love letters in red, and my suicide notes in blue
But I did not know what color to write my letter to you

You said you loved me, but when I needed you most
You left me, looking like you’d just seen a ghost
As my thin blood crept closer to your feet you slowly inched away
Tiptoeing to a seat, flinching when I proposed you stay

But you went with him, stuck thick to him, just for his body
And not with me, because my kiss, my heart, was too fucking bloody
But on the bright side, in the end, at last, my blood is finally clotting
And forensic pathologists are studying, not his, but my body

I gave her a red rose
Which she just let rot
All of the petals fell to her toes
And my blood to the same spot

All my love for her leaked under the door
More love then she’d ever seen before

I had my love letters read, and my suicide notes blew down to Lucifer
But I still didn’t know what to do with my last overdue letter for her

He gave her a red rose
Which she just let rot
All of the petals fell to her toes
And his blood to the same spot

All his love for her leaked under the door
More love then she’d ever seen before

He was such a little devil, a little devil
Well now he’s with others like him
It’s obvious he’s in hell, but which level
Maybe if he keeps falling he’ll win

Young love is oh so very hot
They hung his love on the spot
Now swinging above with all she’s got
Singing of all the beauty as the body rots

He gave her a red rose
Which she just let rot
All of the petals fell to her toes
And his blood to the same spot

When she saw the boy that night by the casket
It was so obvious nobody had to even ask it
It was love at first sight, oh, of course
It’s just too bad he was a corpse

And why the hell did they put petals and even a rose inside his casket
I guess he just wasn’t pretty enough to be presented if he lacked it

All roses rot, roses are rot, my red rose rot for you
These red spots on my toes prove blood is not blue
And love is just, hot sweaty blood, love is just not true
So I’ll stop the flow, cut the tubes my love goes through
