Hospital blossom, remember these things
Though I know there’s no light found in songs that I sing
Asparagus arms and my spine sprouting wings
Don’t you know, when I go there’ll be no bells to ring

The things that I paid for, the things that I stole,
The things that I lost almost swallowed you whole
Your body burned brightly and blackened to coal
And ashes like leavings in a beggar’s bowl

But I know, I know I’m going to leave this life
Just as soon as I’m allowed
I’ve got to go and meet my angel wife
Up on that crooked cloud
My spine will soar and split up skin
My bones will break into birth
And your hands will dig a pit to find me in
That eager, eager earth

Hospital blossom, I cannot resist
The highways that run ‘round my reddening wrists
More grist for the mill and more names for the list
And with the air in my lungs I’m aware I exist

So now I’m bleeding honey where bees once had stung
And I’m crying candy where tears once had clung
And I’m breathing sweetly with marshmallow lungs
And sugarcane grows where my head once had hung

Because I know, I know I’m going to leave this life
Just as soon as I’m allowed
I’ve got to go and meet my angel wife
Up on that crooked cloud
My spine will soar and split up skin
My bones will break into birth
And your hands will dig a pit to find me in
That eager, eager earth
