"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've been condemned to a desolate land,
Too dusty for me to see past my hand,
Alone with memories of my life before,
Tears roll freely and out they pour,
The life I had was plenty good,
I actually owned where I stood,
Thrown out to live in the dust,
There isn't anyone I can trust,
This world is different from my own,
It's nothing that I've ever known,
Now I know I realized too late,
'Cause nothing will ever change my fate,
But one thing's been true all along,
You don't really know what you got till it's gone.
