The Alchemist Lyrics by Iron Maiden


Iron Maiden Lyrics

The Alchemist Lyrics
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 it's name

I have plundered time itself
Put the world inside it
And 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 for my frozen queen will come to pass
Know me the Magus I am
Doctor 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 of 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 Kelly you
Betrayal for eternity is damned
Know you speak with demons you cannot command

Even as I look into the glass
Then I was blinded
Burning 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 for my frozen queen will come to pass
Know me the Magus I am
Doctor 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 of the demons set free
Strange Alchemy

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