she's a song unsung
she's the wild orchid in your ugly swamp
she's a song unsung
and only the white walls of her mind know what that song sounds like.

the pills, the pills
and Dr.'s promises just ain't doing the trick
cause the arm's of nothing she falls asleep in
can still bring the razor to the wrist

the tv screens, the magazines
scream at you like the dogs of hell
advertising and advising you to be
anyone but your-beautiful-self

prince charming never brought you flowers,
just a loveless lifetime all alone
no roses for you, just unknocked doors
and the deafening silence of your phone.

so block your ears, close your eyes,
remember that you're a golden soul fallen from the boring, heartless, hollywood herd of lies that they call:

b e a u t i f u l.

with no shoulder, no hand, no body, no man, no door, no heart to let you:

t h e s u n c a n t a k e t o o l o n g t o e n d t h e e n d l e s s n i g h t

i hear you, i feel you, i bleed with you
when our hearts begin to scream:

t h i s l i f e c a n f e e l t o o l o n g.

but at night you're dancing through the pain
even when you're the only one.
no rose, no sky as full of beauty as the girl who dies
but rises with every morning's sun,
alone.

she dances alone
alone - so beautiful
alone - her own romance:
alone - Lady Lazarus' Life - Sustaining Dance.

    General CommentThis is song far better than most realize. I bought the album today and burst into tears hearing and reading the words to this song. This is me and the life I've lived they sing of. Hearing this has lifted a weight off of me nothing else ever could at its best. No Roses, No Skies speaks for generations of women and girls who have felt exactly this and never known their true beauty and importance in life. It tell us we are just the opposite of what we've been told by society to believe we are. Beautiful without product, strong without a man, and worthy of the greatest joys in life. Have Heart is one of the true leading forces in Hardcore today. Respect.

    Song Meaningthis song means more than most of you think, its not meant to be sad and cry because your life is like this, this song is about being yourself no matter what society say, and most people never show their true beauty because they are so scared of what society will say about them and sometimes it just takes one good person to change all of that. dont care what everybody else calls beautiful becuase you yourself will always be beautiful

    Stay true and love yourself no matter what

    General CommentThe girl described in this song is what i strive to be, positive throughout all the pain and havoc life seems to lay upoon me.
    To me this girl is beautiful, you can't see her and she is just a fictional charecter (maybe), but her insides and her heart are pure which makes her attractive.
    I strive to be a strong girl who stays true to myself even though the world around me may not like who i choose to be.
    Thanks Julio. I love this song. :}

    My InterpretationIt's clear that the song is about a girl that is insecure because of society, but to me this song reminds me of my best-friend/girlfriend who committed suicide when I was 15.

    "she's a song unsung
    she's the wild orchid in your ugly swamp
    she's a song unsung
    and only the white walls of her mind know what that song sounds like." - The world is nasty, and when you're beautiful and breakable no one will hear what you have to say.

    "i hear you, i feel you, i bleed with you
    when our hearts begin to scream:

    t h i s l i f e c a n f e e l t o o l o n g." - all the suffering she had stabbed me in the heart too, and you both just keep hurting because you don't know how to change this.

    "no rose, no sky as full of beauty as the girl who dies
    but rises with every morning's sun." - This line makes me cry everytime I hear it...
