The Alchemist (Iron Maiden)

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
