"Tulips Are Better" as written by Daniel Louis Jacobs, Travis William Miguel, Brandon Saller, Christopher Gordon Thomson and Ektor Alexander Varkatzas....
Crystal clear I see the rose is frail
The thorns hide easily in its beauty
As I go to grasp it in my hand
My heart is torn beating from my chest
Let me be captivated
By your beauty
Then let me fall from your grace
Unto my broken knees
Close My eyes so tightly
The tears are welling up
You aren't worth the waste
Of the salt or the water
Fuck all your false beauty
It was transparent just like your smile liar
Your thorns caress my flesh
Crimson Drops on a snowy field liar
I have watched you retrogress
I have seen what you've become liar
Take your eyes off of me
Its funny how fast blue eyes fade gray liar
Let me be captivated By your beauty
Then let me fall from your grace
Unto my broken knees
Close My eyes so tightly
The tears are welling up
You aren't worth the waste
Of the salt or the water
And you are deceit
Watching the sun play in your hair
I couldn't really care, care any less about you
Just wither away real beauty is forever

    whew, now that is amazing...their lyrics are so captivating and just good. This song is also one of my favorites and I love the things they sing about. They're just pure hardcore in my opinion.

    General Commentfantastic lyrics.
    it's about how he fell for a girl who like a rose was beautiful but then realised that she and the relationship had thorns (troubles) and he came to the conclusion that the pain wasn't worth the beauty.
    so tulips are better because even though they aren't as beautiful as the rose, you don't get hurt by thorns.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on suicide notes and butterfly kisses. That cd is the soundtrack to my summer. I like how a lot of the songs are about relationships that dont work out. The breakdowns are incredible. The lyrics are so amazing with the imagery that they convey. Atreyu is veryveryvery incredible. I love those guys.

    General Commentone of atreyu's better songs...they're all great though...but this one just sort of grabs you when brandon sings:

    Just Wither Away, Real Beauty Is Forever

    Is Atreyu not the best band out there rite now...the riffs brandon's drumming and harmony...them FATA and Chevelle are my top 3
