Rose And A Rope

Who knows what’s gonna happen next

You open up the paper and you read the text

Acid in your face, acid in your heart

You’re looking for the light

But you’re stuck in the dark

No one’s safe, no one’s safe,

Safe from that old enemy called hate

But don't give up, don't give up

Just when you think you’re out of luck 

 

Don't give up, high on the hill of hope, don’t give up 

There is a Rose and a Rope

So don’t give up, high on the hill of hope, don’t give up

 

So you take that rose, and over time

You’re picking off each petal like a nursery rhyme

Life loves you, life loves you not

Your own evolution just thickens the plot...

No one’s safe, no one’s safe

Safe from that old enemy self hate 

But don't give up, don't give up,

Just when you think you’re out of luck

 

Don't give up, high on the hill of hope, don’t give up,

There is a Rose and a Rope, so don’t give up,

High on the hill of hope, life’s throwing you a rose and a rope,

Climb up that slope and choose the rose of love,

Just when you think were outta luck

Just when you think were all fucked up

Don’t give up
