(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

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
evolve

pierce that paper plate eclipse
and find the words upon your lips
root below and star above
you are light and love
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
evolve

when the eye
and the heart
and the mind understand

catalyst
catalyst
catalyst
