Sister Rose


Free that girl
The one that glows she knows
She rules the world
Free that girl
The one that glows she knows
She rules the world

She said
Call me sister rose
I'm at war with all these posers
And these frauds
I want 'em out
Let freedom reign
Let hope stand firm on fields of doubt

Then she led me by the hand
And took me to the promised land

Free that girl
The one that knows she glows
She rules the world

She said I'm just like a rose
I'm beautiful and I can hurt you
With my thorns
Don't squeeze too tight
'Cos I can blow up in your face like dynamite

She said
Call me sister rose
I'm at war with all these posers
And these frauds
I want 'em out
Let freedom reign
Let hope stand firm on fields of doubt

She said take me by the hand as
I can lead you to the promised land

She said I'm just like a rose
I'm beautiful and I can hurt you
With my thorns
Don't squeeze too tight
'Cos I can blow up in your face like dynamite

She said I'm just like a rose
I'm beautiful and I can hurt you
With my thorns
Don't squeeze too tight
'Cos I can blow up in your face like dynamite
