how many times
does it take to get it right
how many minds
have sought to gain those heights

the philosopher’s stone
doesn’t seem to be real
transmuting metals
into new shiny gold

living eternally
just can never be?

come drink the elixir of life
come let eternity be your wife
raising people from the dead
are you sure it was all nonsense, said?

ask john dee
i think he knows
or the infamous zito
to put on a show

just what do you have
hidden in your clock
something wonderful
eternal life locked

come drink the elixir of life
come let eternity be your wife
raising people from the dead
are you sure it was all nonsense, said?

how would you like to live forever
to make gold from any metal
how would you like eternal youth
find the philosopher’s stone!

philosopher’s stone

here me, eternity
unlock your mysteries
before me!

not like I’m selling my soul
evil is not my goal
kind of a white magic
i take on as my role

come to me eternity
let me forever be 21
but i chose to do good
for the world has enough evil

in came the magic winds
and took my age away
i felt brand new
yet my intellect remained

it’s been 6000 years
I’ve helped man when i could
things have not gone well cause
man does things he never should

playing around with nuclear toys
ruining the environment and all
and i the white wizard
might again, watch man fall
