"An Orchid" as written by and Bradford Cox....
I watched the orchids
They rot outside
In the garden

Will you provide
What they need
To survive?
Will you provide
What they need
To survive?

An orchid inside me
We will save the best ones
For the ending
An orchid survived
It's dry outside
But we prefer that heat

Will you provide
What I need
Will you provide
What I need
What I need
What I need

An orchid dies
Each time you keep
A child crying

And what makes you lie
To me
I think your eye
Will reveal

An orchid dies
Each time
A child cries

An orchid dies
Each time

    General Commenti'm picking up a theme of nourishment ,a child needs care like a flower does to fully bloom.

    Lyric Correctionmost of the lyrics is right, however there are tiny changes according to the lyrics at the booklet -

    i watched the orchids
    they rot outside in the garden
    will you provide
    what they need oh to survive

    an orchid died
    we save the best ones for the ending
    an orchid survived
    its dry outside but we prefer the heat
    will you provide what i need

    an orchid dies
    each time you hear a child crying
    and what makes you lie to me
    and think that i'll believe it?

    an orchid dies
    each time a child cries
    an orchid dies
