Three years old I was torn from sleep
By a vision most dreadful
My body’s singed and smoldering
Waking like paper on a bed of coal

Oh my boy, you’re just an orchid child

You’ll shine thrice as bright as a dandelion
But your wounds will run thrice as deep

How the old seasons churn the valley
How the old bones are wearing thin
And ever this wicked apparition
Is lingering just beneath the skin

That’s the plight of an orchid child
Not a blessing nor a curse
Just a fistful of earthly magic
That leaves you with an insatiable thirst

I’ve got dandelions in my pockets now
