Bloody roses for those since passed 

a dead mans song as they raise the mast 

the execution walk to the galleys good sir 

rich women all hiding their face in furs 

wives cry out in despair 

as their husbands are sentenced there 

hanging ropes all have been tied 

four men swung as they died 

the group lines up with a bowed head 

knowing they too will meet their end 

one by one men drop 

the echoing sound of a chop chop chop 

Their liquid drips to the plants below 

to help nurish their sickening glow 

Bloody roses for those since passed

A deadmans song as they raise the mast
