Don't let waters of caution remove you
Don't let the fire of saints compel
Don't let the lack of their spirit blind your life
'Cause soon it's all over, you're gonna come through alive

Well I've been all over the world five times or more
And I've seen the future burn blue before my eyes
And all through the dust and the green magnesium fire
Don't let the violence blind ya, we're gonna come through alive

And the roses that are offering
They are real as evening wind
They are washed by love and suffering
'Cause my love has colored them, colored them
Ooh ooh, nothing but roses

But don't dam the river that's running through you
Stop saving up for time that may never become
I've seen the future come true in twenty days
But don't let it scare you, stop thinking about yesterday

I've had my share of blue revelations
And I know that time is a region to be passed
So all through the dust and the green magnesium fire
I can rest easy now, watch the carnival rollin' by

'Cause a rose that will be growing
In the place where I have hidden
It is washed by love and suffering
Yes my love has colored in

Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses

And look where the roses grow
Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses

Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses

Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses grow
Look where the roses

    My InterpretationThis song is very poignant (and relatable, at least for me.) It's about not letting human violence and evil (the dust and the green magnesium fire) blind you to the fact that good exists in the world, and we shouldn't give up on trying to find it, because there are little things everywhere (the roses) that remind you of it.
