Third Single from the album, Keep Left at the Fork

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

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, understand, understand

Catalyst
