a rose on your grave

i’ll leave a rose on your grave
for the thoughts that you left me
and you always seemed so strong
with all your needles and your pills
i feel for you and your children
and all the sorrows that you left in your tracks
and all the blood that you shed with your pistol
and all the hearts that you cut with your knife

and in the end you just gave up
you had nothing left to hang onto
you disappeared long before you went
and when you went you took away the hope you gave us

you cut your hair and shaved your beard
that’s when i saw how old you got
i was looking at an outline
a faded image from your past
i started mourning you two years ago
when they opened you up there was nothing but a hole
where your soul used to be
and you were pumped and you were sewn

and in the end you just gave up
you had nothing left to hang onto
you disappeared long before you went
and when you went you took away the hope you gave us

and there’ll always be your art
to remind us that you were human
and you were weak just like us all
and you were lonely and we were shameful
and for that you can’t be blamed
and there’ll always be a star for you somewhere
and there’ll always be your eyes
in the minds of all your sisters

and in the end you just gave up
you had nothing left to hang onto
you disappeared long before you went
and when you went you took away the hope you gave us
