Fresh Deadly Roses

This song is by Soundgarden and appears on the single Loud Love (1989).

Original video
I'd cry enough rain
To wash your garden away
But I'm dry as stone
So your trees wash away like veins

And I've been known
To take a blow, and I know
How fair your garden grows
With fresh deadly roses
Fresh deadly roses

You laid all your
Lilies on the graves
Of all the lonely
Soldiers you left battle torn

And you cut their pride
On your concertina
That surrounds your dying leaves and your

Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses, oh you gave me
Fresh deadly roses

Now I know just how it feels
To see my love congeal
Under your razor heel and your

Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses

You gave me the birds in your trees
Buzzing around your disease
And leaves growing blood-hungry leeches, and your

Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses

One, two, three, four
More thorns in my side
Each little wound
Is getting harder to hide

Each little wound
Is getting hard to swallow
I'd love to make you
Mine to break your

Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses, you gave me
Fresh deadly roses
