Shower of alchemy
Show me me ideally
Leaden anchoring to golden and freeing
To react with those around me
Should that need be

Willing to change
In the face of good medicine
Cursed to be forever
An agent of change
But change we are not
We are not our thoughts
We're not sold
Just cause we're bought
And now we must change, too
In addition, as well
Another entrance
Where were we when?

Alchemical showers
Precipitate from new-law-law
But who discovered whom
All temples, a tomb
Each a god, each in bloom
Ever coming, some leave room
For fruits and tools
Or fabrics in looms
And exits marked
Should any be a fool

Taste death, life, strife, sacrifice
Then make some truth
In endless youth
Not in folly
Just adeptness for finding food
Make some space
To transmutate
The ease of tension
Into an ease of fate
The inevitable
Is just what we create
So kiss us off gently
And make something great

Hello? Yeah, hey. I can talk right now.
