This was one of my first pieces, but one of my favorites. It started out as a song, but it started to get too abstract for lyrics. Enjoy!

When the sky beats
With the adrenaline
Of a million passed souls
And the Earth hums 
With the breath
Of a thousand hearts,
You know the music
Is at bay

Something so gorgeous 
And clear
Yet lustrous and bold,
Something born to heal
The heart, mind, and soul
Is drumming through
The brainwaves of the world

It's burning in my heart
As the melody crescends,
My heart slows
But the tempo beats so steady
And you know the music
Is at bay

But when the song ends
The nightmares begin to play,
So close your eyes,
Hold me fast
And whisper "Go away"

Because a world with no music
Is no world at all
