Arced Horizons

From/With/To My Joan of Arc (Lorraine):

Trails and Horizons

Trails and Horizons

When the dragons grow too mighty
To slay with pen or sword
I grow weary of the battle
And the storm I walk toward
When all around is madness
And there’s no safe port in view
I long to turn my path homeward
To stop awhile with you

When life becomes so barren
And as cold as winter skies
There’s a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for order
In vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
Your love has shown me proof

(Madrigal: Neil Peart)

Approaching Shores

Approaching Shores

A modest man from Mandrake
Traveled rich to the city
He had a need to discover
A use for his newly-found wealth

Because he was human, because he had goodness
Because he was moral they called him insane
Delusions of grandeur, visions of splendor
A manic depressive, he walks in the rain

Eyes wide open
Heart undefended
Innocence untarnished

Cinderella man
Doing what you can
They can’t understand
What it means

Cinderella man
Hang on to your plans
Try as they might
They cannot steal your dreams

In the betrayal of his love he awakened
To face a world of cold reality
And a look in the eyes of the hungry
Awakened him to what he could do

He held up his riches to challenge the hungry
Purposeful motion for one so insane
They tried to fight him just couldn’t beat him
This manic depressive who walks in the rain

. . .

Try as they might
They cannot steal your dreams
