Witchcraft - The Alchemist lyrics


01. Walk Between The Lines

Walking between the lines
That's what makes my life worthwhile
When no one knows what I mean
Is when I feel I have succeeded.

Cryptic and reclusive
You bend your back for me
Hiding in the shadow
Complications over you.

Keeping track of what's important
Is all that matters in the long run
Whatever echoes back makes you realise
You are not alone even though it hurts.

Calm my mind with tempered thoughts
Ah, you fuel my heart with blood inside
Flawless and fearless you wish I was.

Climb the walls in your high
You better come down and wait a while
Frustration for another mile.

02. If Crimson Was Your Colour

Within the darkest hour
When the dragon releases its power
They feel the urge to meet
To share and to intertwine.

Beneath the leader of the horde
Men and demons are sworn
To kill and grant his grace
They are reflections of the Devil's face.

The night is young and fresh
With a scent of macabre on its breath.
Scattered they form a pattern
To be seen from the sky.

If crimson was your colour
Could your conscience bear your soul
Would you paint the space with murder
Your spirit's breath so cool.

They are cowards falling from their own grace
Infiltrating penetrating with hate
Rounding up marching into the womb
Catatonic spending time in sin.

03. Leva

Nu är det dags att se sig omkring
Titta en liten bit utanför
Det spelar ingen roll om du inte kan sjunga
Ha bara känslan I din kropp.

Det finns någonting som jag verkligen avskyr
Det är när människor inte begriper
Varför kan jag inte längre nå fram
Jag orkar inte längre se på.

Det är slut
Allting är över
Ingen återvändo
Jag behöver.

Han som älska att leva
Han som älska att känna
Vill inte bli utdömd
Inte längre någon slav.

Vill du inte försöka
Att be for en stund
Alla tankar bara regnar
Har inte sovit en blund.

Varför kom du tillbaks
Varför kom du till mig
En fruktansvard svaghet
Jag såra mig själv.

Testa dig själv Utmana ödet
Du har ingenting att förlora.

04. Hey Doctor

Hey doctor tell me how can it be
Our screams are so real and you, you live in harmony
You can't heal this cancer radiation will kill
Your cult of flames behind the wall of sleep.

Impostor without knowing your beliefs have been defiled
The flesh on them bones been scorched and burned
A downward spiral for your heresy inclined
You're pushing forward back your logic is reversed.

Constitution of murder
So legal and proud
Institution of sadness
A lot of them died.

Blood pouring down from the back of your neck
You're being drowned of vitality's gift
Like a serpent's tooth the venom penetrates
Fight fire with fire and you fight back.

Integrity and dignity for what it's worth
Now pull your head out and act like a man
It seems like you never have been free
Fight fire with fire and then fight back.

The symptoms of your illness
Are beginning to fade
Now tell me who's to blame
Burn burn flame.

05. Samaritan Burden

Guilty by all means
How to survive
This day means so much
I've paid my debts to you.

Sleep in fusion file
Awaken by the guilt again
Bear my innocence
Wake my innocence.

It's just a spectre
An interlude of confusion
Don't let it scare you so
Be it thoughts of amusement
The light counters dark as it rea ches its peak
Blend and balance, the bold takes it all.

The threshold's been diminished
Your ideals are gone
The struggle almost over
You've found your pot of gold.

Learning to pray upon these false indications
Clinging to this nothingness might do you good.

Solve this riddle
The answer lies within
Tantoblin knows where the hierogram is.

06. Remembered

My heart's on fire
I'm alive
I've got wings of my own
Something new something fresh
Indestructible and fragile
Make amends.

Isoftly call
Call on you
I don't know
What it takes to get through
Holy mother here inside
You left your temple with your gold.

Please let this all be remembered
Don't cast it upon another
This daydream is growing old
It's night but I'm not cold.

Maybe my horses are a little bit high
Or maybe I'm easy and you are going blind.

07. The Alchemist (parts 1, 2 & 3)

I have seen great kingdoms, I've seen them rise and fall
I am a thousand years old, maybe a thousand more
The story's now forgotten, the paper's long gone dried
The ashes of the magician are spread with the wind and fire.

I am not afraid of my own blood
I can share with you so much more
Stable and balanced, I am here
Breathing in, breathing out.

Sometimes I wish that I was back in Babylon
Drinking wine with nostalgia
A blessed disease, I'd laugh at you dementia.

I can blow your mind
I can blow your mind.

The trees so stark, shake like leaves
The garden is under siege
The storm cries, war lieutenant speaks
This holy man, the alchemist.

I can blow your mind
I can blow your mind.

Put a word in my mouth and watch me swallow
Dig a hole into the ground, the funeral orchestra.

Slow down, your pace is high
Brutalized by one man's hate
Slow down, kill his love

I'm back again with perspective eyes deception still lingers on
But I am not one to categorize, I'm a free man on my own
Looking back upon the disrespect, next time I'm ready to fight
Unlike a soldier in a battlefield, I'll pull my horses back and leave.
