Lyrics:

flaunting rose in a hollow glass
daylight fades and shadows pass
we were never built to fight the dark
my thorny side in your baby skin
digging deeper we dance and spin
deadpan smile on trial we miss the mark

down down down petals fall
around round round past deliberating walls

someone get me out of this
erase your smile
unclench your fist
someone scrape your salt
from my tongue
all I want is a brand new start
sparkling slate
untouched heart
all I want is something left to give
when things come undone

tall straight backs now we're face to face
miles between us and out of place
how is the family? I hope everything is well
you've concealed your scratches I've hid my thorns
no one will know skin was broken or torn
do you like your new job? living in a hotel

down down down gazes fall
around float questions
that will never be answered at all

someone get me out of this
erase your smile
unclench your fist
someone scrape your salt
from my tongue
all I want is a brand new start
sparkling slate
untouched heart
all I want is something left to give
when things come undone

Oh how we put on a show
talking laughing screaming pointing
everyone would go to see
dancing dancing roses
plastered eyes that hid the lies
behind them our red disguise
the dancing dancing roses

down down down the curtain falls
there will be no final encore call

someone get me out of this
erase your smile
unclench your fist
someone scrape your salt
from my tongue
all I want is a brand new start
sparkling slate
untouched heart
all I want is something left to give
when things come undone
