"In Red" as written by and Catherine Jane/gray Garside....
i wreck your bed
the colour is honey
your finger prints marking my wall
in red
i take a light plex
put it around your kneck
i turn it on a choking blue
fire in your eyes
in red
make me confess
shut your mouth
rip my dress
don't ever protest that you don't
want this mess
don't even pretend that i
could be your friend
i climb the walls
knuckles are bleeding
throw me down
push my face into the fire
you liar
your crossed the line
you're tripping on guilty
i undermine
your girlfriend and you in the pyre
you liar

    Lyric CorrectionBTW I think the lyrics posted here as

    "Shut your mouth
    RIP my dress"

    is actually

    "Shut your mouth
    WITH my dress"

    I have a few live versions of this song, and it's pretty clear she is saying WITH and not RIP.

    It makes more sense too.

    General CommentSounds to me like a very dysfunctional, abusive relationship. She's a victim of an unfaithful lover, and at this point there's no turning back, no way they could be make up or ever be able to repair their relationship, even as friends.

    General CommentIf i may make a few corrections to the song:
    After "the color is honey" KJG sings "I go the mile" then "your fingerprints.."
    I believe it is "i take a light flex"
    and it's "you're girlfriend and you on the Pyre" it doesn't quite make sense but thats how it is written in the booklet but there are a few typos in the booklet so i think the correct spelling would be "your" not you're

    Besides that this is the song that got me hooked on Queen Adreena so it will always be one of my favorites. I completely agree with girlicide that it's about an abusive relationship. The song just feels like a kick in the stomach.. in a good sort of way.
