The Alchemist Lyrics

5. The Alchemist (4:29)
Track rating :  75 / 100      Votes :  1     
Stranger than the comet as it streaks across the sky
Stranger than the truth I know before my open eyes
I have dealt in mysteries and trickery of light to entertain
Looked into the abyss, called it by its name

I have plundered time itself, put the world inside it
I'm the mysteries, day and night, divide it
A plague of wonders, on your knees beside me
Know the secrets, you shall not deride us

My dreams of empire from my frozen queen will come to pass
Know me, the Magus, I am Dr. Dee and this is my house
I am the master of the tides, I shame the mirror in my sight
What random music of the spheres across the years

Know this, I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Gather round the aimless and the feckless and the lame
Hear the master summon up the spirits by their names
I curse you Edward Kelley, your betrayal for eternity is damned
Know you speak with demons, you cannot command

Even as I looked into the glass then I was blinded
Burning by the Mortlake shore, my house, my books inside it
You have taken up my wife and lain beside her
Now the black rain on my house, the timbers burning

My dreams of empire from my frozen queen will come to pass
Know me, the Magus, I am Dr. Dee and this was my house
I was the keeper of the books, I had the knowledge of the scrolls
But now through ignorance and fear, I cast a shadow through the years

Know this, I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Know this, I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Know this, I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Restore the knowledge memory
Strange alchemy
