about

A Suit of My Flesh- A synopsis by Stevie Boiser:

This song starts with the frantic exchange of words between the Homunculous and Von Hohenheim , who has just become aware of the ghastly transgressions of the one he once considered a teacher and friend. In addition to becoming a Philosopher's Stone himself, the Homunculous also granted Hohenheim the same powers, but at a terrible price...

The souls of his fellow countrymen now course through his being, wailing in agony.

The Homunculus tells him that his actions are based entirely upon alchemy's founding principle, Equivalent Exchange. After all, Hohenheim's blood is the very reason he is alive. So in exchange for life, he has gifted Hohenheim a body that will last all eternity.

The phrase "A Suit Of My Flesh" comes from the fact that the Homunculus has now taken on a form that resembles Hohenheim's. Though the two are diametrically opposed when it comes to their Ideals, they are forever bound by the event that transpired that day, and seek to end each others existence.

Blood brothers entwined, 'til the end of time.

lyrics

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Homunculous, what have you done?

(Stevie Boiser)

Brother of mine...
Von Hohenheim!
I have escaped!

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

What have you done to me?

(Stevie Boiser)

I've gifted you a body that will last all eternity!

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

At what cost? The lives of my countrymen have been lost!
And now you stand before me, draped in what appears to be
A suit of my flesh...
Answer me Homunculous!

(Stevie Boiser)

I was born of your blood for that I've given you a name, awareness, knowledge, and purpose. A new life!
A vessel's what I've needed, so this elaborate scheme I did arrange...
I suppose you could say it's equivalent exchange...

(Stevie Boiser & Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Blood brothers entwined, 'til the end of time.
The depths of my schemes, will haunt your very dreams.
I'll shed this facade, and become a god.
Blood brothers, entwined 'til the end of time.

(Stevie Boiser)

Can you feel them pulsing within?
The chorus of your comrades, slaves, and your King.
Echoing harmoniously in a wave of infinite screams...

(Guitar solo by Zach Hohn)

(Bass solo by Hugo Karout)

(Guitar solo by Nick Padovani)

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Homunculous,
For this you will breathe your last.
I will return,
For now there is much to learn.

(Stevie Boiser)

Go then Hohenheim...
You're trapped in this web of mine.

(Stevie Boiser & Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Blood brothers entwined 'til the end of time. The depths of my schemes will haunt your very dreams. I'll shed this facade and become a god. Blood brothers entwined 'til the end of time.
