Rik Garrett - Symbiosis (2010-11)
"An integral concept of Alchemy is ‘Solve et Coagula’ – dissolve and combine. This is the secret key to manifesting the Philosopher’s Stone, Elixr of Life and immortality. This ideal is represented with the image of the Rebis – a two-headed hermaphrodite that holds the assets of both genders."
We’ve been friends for a long, long time,
but I don’t know how to make you mine.
So I’ll try, yeah I’ll try, to make you mine, all mine.
I am the only one who has the power to do that.
I loved you, and I ruined myself,
I wrecked myself,
I destroyed myself.
