As roses a long line of blue
They smile indiscreetly up at you
The soul of the day in reward
You’re all that’s left so please keep from getting bored.

As roses a long line of red
They’ve fed off everything that’s failed that's dead.
And now all the dreams that you’ve fled,
We’ll find another one in your bed.

So close your precious eyes little one
And seek comfort in the darkness, when you’ve done.
The flame burns from blue then to red
Now rest in the warmth restored of what’s been read.

As roses a long line of death
So cast out all the demons in your breadth.
The lame and the weak will implore
But you must please just keep from getting bored.

Please just keep from getting bored.
Please just keep from getting bored.

As roses in their last waking bloom
Have flowered with a pluck of that finite loom
And friends to your side you recall
Who will catch you at the first sign of fall?
