or a shorter excerpt from Tool (The Grudge )
" Give away the stone. Let the oceans take and
Transmutate this cold and fated anchor.
Give away the stone. Let the waters kiss and
Transmutate these leaden grudges into gold.
Yay!! Transmutation - totally !!
Let's turn it into gold ...
I heard that adage :
What we clutch to turns to coal
What we offer turns to gold ...
