Amateur Alchemist

AMATEUR ALCHEMIST (J Neo Marvin-Annie Hesse)

A lot of people play amateur alchemist
Some do it to relieve their pain
Some to quell the endless hate inside
Some to try and stimulate their brains

Some people join the God Of The Month Club
They think there’s more to life than flesh and bone
Some paint, write or sing their nightmares
To show others that they’re not alone

Something happened to me yesterday
And you can’t tell me that it was just drugs
Sometimes I lie down and I close my eyes
And then I’m drowning in a sea of love

There’s a catch
You gotta open them up again
There’s a catch
You’ve got to wake up again.
