The Mandrake's Tale (Selfish, Stubborn Remix)
I am the soul of Man, born in dirt but filled with magic. Did they really think I could be destroyed by fire? All they destroyed was that poor child’s dreams, grown in me and fed on blood. The servant girl finds me in the ashes and takes me to the older wiser woman.
She knows my name, and for all she calls me a selfish stubborn thing she knows how to save me, make me useful again. I’ll go out of this place with her as powder in a bottle, find a home where the dreams of Man still grow.
