10 Catalyst
The Hope -- In the pit of impenetrable despair and denigration shines a light. I feel its warmth before I see it. Shrouded in darkness I am surrounded by a circle that pushes into shadow, defining now and edge and other. The spark in the dark changes everything. I look up. I am the centre of the universe not awash in it. I decide, I create, I expand. I change the world. The ogham fid is Ceirt for sacred madness, misfortune, and hope.

lyrics

CATALYST // a spark in the dark / cannot go unseen / cannot disappear / cannot melt into the nothingness / or hide behind the night / it is other, it is light // and the eye unaccustomed to illumination shines / and the heart that never felt the sun expands / and the mind confronting chemical epiphany understands // this is a catalyst for completion / a catalyst for resolve / this is a catalyst to launch a thousand ships by / a catalyst to evolve // art at the start / has no memory / has no consequence / has an infinite potential / to become or to betray / just a facet, just the clay // if the eye unaccustomed to illumination shines / and the heart that never felt the sun expands / and the mind confronting chemical epiphany understands // this is a catalyst for completion / a catalyst for resolve / this is a catalyst to launch a thousand ships by / a catalyst to evolve // pierce that paper plate eclipse / and find the words upon your lips / root below and star above / you are light and love // this is a catalyst for completion / a catalyst for resolve / this is a catalyst to launch a thousand ships by / a catalyst to evolve // when the eye / and the heart / and the mind understand // catalyst / catalyst / catalyst //
