lyrics

Like a rose, I appear beautiful to your eyes.
Like a rose, it's safer to admire from a distance.
You never knew the truth.
It doesn't take much effort
to play the part you've always played,
but deep beneath the crimson
lies the thorn. It is my life,

and God is the rose,
and I am the thorn.
I draw the blood.

All of us, actors
All our lives a flame upon a candle
We burn and then we fade and die

and still the rose is blooming,
covering me and all my shame.

God is the rose
and I am the thorn.
I draw the blood.

God is the rose (3x)
