Why spin straw into gold when it already is that shade of the sun? Why take something warm and make it so cold? If this is alchemy, then you can keep those cold palaces for your cold ego, to house those bones that lost their soul. The sun spun this straw from mud and rain, grew a seed into a fine strand of such beauty. And so you see, blind wizard, nature is my alchemy.

With the invention of the "materializer" the first thing to be made was gold. Alchemy at last; but when you have unlimited gold what happens to the price? To the demand? I can answer that. It becomes nothing more prized than copper, in fact, less so because its uses are less. With the new machine we can make any element from any other and there are much rarer materials for us to forge...

Glitter on the wet streets
Silver over everything
The river's all wet
You're all chrome

Dripping with alchemy
Shiver stop shivering
The glitter's all wet
You're all chrome

Was it magic or just science? i had always found alchemy as a subject to take interest it. is it legend or real? can forces of nature be actually controlled? with logic you also need a spiritual belief. with both brought together..you get alchemy
