Violets

Lately I haven’t noticed when it’s dark out 

We’ve been shrouded by a dark cloud 

And I’m feeling a flood 

Maybe I need to get back to my baby 

I need a hug from my old lady 

Someone to love 

We’ve got the kindling 

But no flint to spark it 

Still held by the guys who 

Crashed the housing market 

We call it how we see it 

We break the circle 

Roses are red and 

Violets are purple 

You can throw obstacles 

Any hurdle we jump over 

Nothing matters to us except each other 

We call it how we see it 

We break the circle 

Roses are red and violets… 

Right now, I feel like it’s do or die 

Now or never, me oh my 

The end of what? 

I know it’s my own fucking problem 

Don’t want you to get involved in 

Unless it’s what you want 

When you were my age 

You had to walk uphill to school both ways 

But now things aren’t at all the same 

They’re bringing guns in and shooting up the place 

We’ve got the kindling 

But no flint to spark it 

Still held by the guys who 

Crashed the housing market 

We call it how we see it 

We break the circle 

Roses are red and 

Violets are purple 

You can throw obstacles 

Any hurdle we jump over 

Nothing matters to us except each other 

We call it how we see it 

We break the circle 

Roses are red and violets…
