Lyrics

Alchemy of Pain by C. Ostor copyright 2013, all rights reserved

Verse1-
Magician whose powers assist my art
and whom I always fear,
I am the saddest of alchemists.
You turn me into Midas' peer.

Verse2-
Through you I turn my gold to lead
and in heaven find my hell.
Shrouded in the darkest clouds, I uncover
corpses that I loved so well.

Chorus-

May heaven help you,
for its secrets bring disdain......(echo)

Silver and gold have no meaning,
but the alchemy of pain.

Verse 3-
Lead, tin, and iron profit nothing
where the celestial shores die.
Silver and gold have no value.
I carve vast tombs against the sky.

Verse 4-
For there be secret things
that in one Principle do dwell,
more precious under Heaven,
I have sworn that I may not tell.

Chorus:
May heaven help you,
for its secrets bring disdain......(echo)

Silver and gold have no meaning,
but the alchemy of pain. (repeat)
