lyrics

I’ve been studying alchemy
I forfeit poems for bio-chemistry
And I can pull
Penicillin out of mold
But I can’t quite turn leaden sorrow
Into gold

Oh woah, oh, oh oh
Oh woah oh, oh oh

I’ve been studying alchemy
A four foot poem formed by old chemistry
And I would pull
Your body from your bones
And shake, shake, shake the sorrow
From the marrow

Oh woah, oh, oh oh
Oh woah, oh, oh oh

Oh

All these cures, you know, take time
Go and open up my cabinet
Even if your heart ain’t mine

Oh woah, oh

Take sarsaparilla and sassafras
Let them steep behind an honest smile
And I swear your smile will last

Oh woah, oh, oh oh
Oh woah, oh, oh oh

I’ve been studying alchemy
I forfeit poems for bio-chemistry
And I can pull
Penicillin out of mold
But I can’t quite turn leaden sorrow
Into gold
