Wasting time just going mindless
Watching your charades
When you were younger did it occur to you
Ten years from then you'd act the same age

I cannot carry on this way
Although I've carried all your every little thing
Carry me away

Did you feel like stomping the roses
Smashing out all the feeling inside of them
It's bad business
The way you're stomping the roses

I was flipping channels on my television
And it made me feel unwell
One of those complicated soap operas
I almost felt like I was watching myself

I cannot carry on this way
Although I've carried all your every little thing
Carry me away

Did you feel like stomping the roses
Smashing out all the feeling inside of them
It's bad business
The way you're stomping the roses
Everyone knows it

I know, I know, I know
I know it's over and I
I know, I know, I know
Always been your token nice guy
I know that you rule your whole world
I thought I could live in it
But I just can't

You know you're stomping the roses
Smashing out all the feeling inside of them
It's bad business
The way your stomping the posies
Everyone knows it

Stomping the roses
Smashing out all the feeling inside of them
It's bad business
The way you're stomping the roses

    General Comment“Stomping the Roses” is about being frustrated with someone so immature, irritable, and selfish that he can’t stand having them in his life or having himself be in their world anymore. Why would anyone stomp roses, something so beautiful, something that means a lot to someone else, anyway?
