The Alchemist
(Danylo-May)

Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said
Said I ain’t falling
For the voices come calling
Got a fistful of steel
When the enemy is real
Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said

I am my worst enemy
So c’mon baby, friend me
Tell me what I’ve been missing
Be sure to be listening
Said if you could inhale
Just a little more noble
Your words could be neon
Glow the world global

Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said
Three protons away
From something real great
Got a heart that beats harder
Than it should, if I’m honest
Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said

Probable transmutation
All comes down to energy
Could get stoned like philosophers
Enlist, become officers
There’s purposes out there
That we’ll just never get to
Every path that we travel
Takes us where we just go to

In all my elixirs
There’s no panacea
Like a red Taylor port from
1963 or 4
Grapes born to be squeezed
To a sweet, potent tonic
Got a heart that beats harder
Than it should, if I’m honest

Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said
Composition redacted
Soul radioactive
Periodically busted
Intact if I’m rusted
Got a headful of lead
So the alchemist said
