Verse 1

  I'm a junkyard full of false starts
  And I don't need your permission
  To bury my love under this bare light bulb

Bridge 1

  The moon is a sickle cell
  It'll kill you in time
  Your cold white brother riding your blood
  Like spun glass in sore eyes

Chorus 1

  While the moon does its division you're buried below
  And you're coming up roses everywhere you go
  Red roses follow

* You'll have to listen to the song to get the rythm

Bridge 2

  The things that you tell yourself
  They'll kill you in time
  Your cold white brother alive in your blood
  Spinning in the night sky

Chorus 2

  So you got in a kind of trouble that nobody knows   
  It's coming up roses everywhere you go
  Red roses
