"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first Law of Equivalent Exchange."


I'm spinning in circles again
Just a hot mess on the floor
Trying to hold onto someone—something
But then I fall, fall, fall.
Ground won't hold, oh no
Feel the sand take in my feet.
Calling, calling "Can you hear me?
Can you help me?
...can you save me?"
Nothing.
Whisper good-bye to it all.
