they stand alone listlessly innocent with crimson soaked petals full blossomed and thorned i'm burning all my roses tonight with intent to purify flames to burdens disintegrate to ashes purification flames to burdens to ashes i rest my mind on the thought of something not of this world searching for a place where dreams never die a place not of this world searching for something else such a place exists and resides in the solitude of a heart such a place exists beneath a tangled mesh of thorns so take a flame to your garden your precious collection that only brings dissatisfaction as it grows without an end i feel the petals burn and the smoke drifts i feel the petal burns and the grey night clouds carry me away from this place and for one pure moment i am free

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song, and the lyrics are stunning. My favorite This Day Forward song. Burn all the roses, because the good memories will still remind you of bad ones. Burn them all.
    By the way, it's "They stand alone, hopeless, they stand alone, listlessly innocent."
