Symphony Magical Mystery Tour


English: Brendan Townsend conducting the Lared...

an elder wand with a resin core
sprouting musical moments from tip to bore
the magic of stardust becomes still at a glance
then heightens the conquest, encores to advance

You’ll Never Reach Her


Star Trails Northern Hemisphere

I dip my hands into oblivion,
and find myself clasping stars

You Can


squeeze one more line out of me

The Words Were Stuck In My Head


Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

The world is sometimes an awful place.
My mind, a million times more so.
There are thoughts that crawl in spaces
that I can’t seem to control. It makes me hate.
It makes me hate myself.
It makes me feel so alone,
like everything I do is worthless,
like everything is pointless,
like all there is to be had is this sorrow,
this emptiness, guilt, and regret.
I look to my right and there is no one beside me.
I look to my left and it is the same.

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

Could there possibly be a soul out there,
someone to understand me?
Someone to love this vile thing I’ve become,
to fill the hole that is always hungry,
hungry for more but never is filled?
Does anyone even care what I’m going through?
Does anyone think I matter at all?
Because I sure don’t
And I’m on my last bit of strength.
I can’t take much more of this.

2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Yeah, I’ve heard the words before,
but words mean nothing when I’m so cold,
so cold inside. Words don’t change things.
Words go into my head
but they can’t free my heart
from this wretched weight.
I’m stuck here waiting.
I need flesh and blood.
I need helping hands,
some proof in my life
that I’m not in this
alone.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

I am so tired, I don’t know if I can go on,
if I can keep walking, walking this way.
I need someone who can carry me across,
who can pull me through.
Someone who won’t quit on me,
abandon me, give up on me,
forget me, or put other things before me.

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

I need to be with someone,
someone who sees me for me.
Someone who can protect me,
love me, care about me,
think about me
as much as I think about them.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

I need someone to wrap their arms around me,
to feel that they are there
that they care.
I need to be able to shut my eyes
and block out the evil world
to forget it’s there all around me.
I need someone to hold on to,
to hold onto me.

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

I need to know that out there, somewhere
in this big blue, green, brown, and black space
that we call home-
that there is someone who values me,
that there is a reason I’m alive.
A reason more than chance,
or fate, or random accident.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

I need to know that I’ll be safe,
that I’ll be loved,
that everything will be ok.
No, better than ok.
I want to be happy,
happy and not alone anymore.
I want to get up in the morning
and I want to be able to live my life.

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Can You do that for me?
Just once, maybe?
Will You do that for me
even if it was only me?
