I walked up and choked on the Host
Said "goodbye" to what I loved most
I picked my heart up off the floor
I just can't stay here anymore

I kiss the open lotus bloom
Laughing at the dew I consume
But I'm staring at a closed door
I just can't stay here anymore

Who would give me the time of day?
Forgive me for the tune I play?
And dare to taste the wine I pour?
I just can't stay here anymore

I wear the blossom on my sleeve
But still, it seems I have to leave
They say I'm rotten to the core
I just can't stay here anymore
