The Order of the Stormcraft

Things are going slow, but they're moving, I think.
I recently compiled a strange goody bag of songs, that were once long lost, but thanks to some careless rummaging, have been restored to their original form. These songs include old acoustic demos, variations of newer songs, 3 songs written for Heidi a long time ago, and weird oblong tracks I made specifically to amuse my boredom, as told by such memorable titles as "Rap Music was Made For Dumbasses and Shit-eaters", "Irresponsible Sex With Heather Locklear", "The Cookie Monster is the Meaning of Life", and "I Secretly Have Photographs of George Bush Drunk at a Party" (I'm not kidding). There's about 2 hours and 45 minutes worth of this lost material, the epic songs written for Heidi once upon a time taking up a good 50 minutes by altogether, and various other goodies. There are even odd recording sessions with Andrew, Danny, John, and some other things, though sadly, their quality isn't as great as I'd want it to be.
The material is very raw, but this was the beginning.
I also found this:
"Light is not shed, it is born, as a fire is ignited between the swift friction of two stones, we were two elements destined to collide and spark the wrath of passion in my knowlege. My burden of truth is madness and persecution, for those that bear the secrets of the wizard behind the curtain are snuffed out of existence, as is the light. When they throw their stones, I will stand with strength, because in my death stirs the catalyst for revolution, and in revolution, my will has conquered all."
Me, June 2004
It was a piece of paper attatched to a strange piece of music similar to one of the tracks on The Prophet and the Jackal. It's more than a year old, but it was very odd to listen to, because the song held this very otherworldly quality I can't explain.
