  • As I rise from golden slumbers
    To my own mortality
    And I want to take you with me
    To my lone tranquility
    Then you vanish right before me
    And the room smells like a flower
    In the palace of the kings
    Yet the fruit is sometimes sour

    My dandelion
    My liberty
    My dandelion
    Your devotee
    My dandelion
    This alchemy
    My dandelion

    As I stumble to the parlor
    I am filled with no regret
    And I am but a troubadour
    I am the last prophet
    This house was once a vacancy
    Now gold has turned to rust
    But life is just a lesson
    And full of wanderlust

    My dandelion
    My liberty
    My dandelion
    Your devotee
    My dandelion
    This alchemy
    My dandelion

    And I take
    Dandelion
    This is my inquisition
    Got me spun up on the wire
    And I make
    Dandelion
    I have come to my decision
    Gonna walk into the fire

    I hear the blackbird sing, it's everything
    I hear the blackbird sing, it's what you bring

    And I take
    Dandelion
    This is my inquisition
    Got me spun up on the wire
    And I make
    Dandelion
    I have come to my decision
    Gonna walk into the fire
    And I take
    Dandelion
    This is my inquisition
    Got me spun up on the wire
    And I make
    Dandelion
    I have come to my decision
    Gonna walk into the fire

    I hear the blackbird sing, it's everything
    I hear the blackbird sing, it's what you bring
