Blue Orchid Lyrics


You got a reaction
You got a reaction didn't, you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it's giving up
We all need to do something
Try keep the truth from showing up

How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?

You're given a flower
But I guess there's just no pleasing you
Your lips tastes sour
But you think that it's just me teasing you

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Blue Orchid
  • This song draws from the Bible story about Eve taking the apple from the tree in the Garden of Eden.
  • Blue Orchid was the name of the website of a group of Russians involved in a worldwide child pornography ring. The line, "You took a white orchid and turned it blue" indicates that the children are pure and these people abused them, leaving them "blue" for the rest of their lives.
  • Some fans mistakenly believed this song was about Jack White's fight with Von Bondies lead singer Jason Stollsteimer at a Detroit nightclub. White was charged with aggravated assault, had to pay a fine and was ordered to attend anger management classes.
  • The girl in the video is Karen Elson, a famous British model who once shaved off her eyebrows for an appearance in Vogue. This was the first time she and Jack White met, but they were married weeks later during The White Stripes tour of South America. In the video, she takes a bite of a white apple, and as she does so, black liquid stains her body.
