rose with a broken neck


As soon as I heard Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi song with Jack White, 'Rose with a Broken Neck' from their album 'Rome', I knew I was going to do this drawing and watercolor. 

If you would like a listen to the song, here it is and the lyrics as well:

Lonely I see
Lonely I lead
Lonely I feel
Lonely I bleed
Lonely I trust
And lonely I must
Be the rose with the broken neck

The plow on the farm
The train on the track
The tracks on my arm
The train in a wreck
That's when they all seem to swarm
Not when you are all alone
In your home with the broken neck

Help myself to a drink
Help myself to the sink
The dogs start to moan
And the crows start to peck
At my eyes and down at the ground
Oh and it shows
I'm the rose with the broken neck

Lonely I see
Lonely I lead
Lonely I feel
And lonely I bleed
Lonely I trust
And lonely I must
Be the rose with the broken neck


P.S. Thanks for all the love for the new header! I like it too ;)

I love this song, and your accompanying drawing. Both have inspired me to draw something in the same vein.

I've not heard of this song and I love music! Wha?! ;) Thanks for sharing, although quite a sad song.

Your artwork, as always, amazing.
