I really enjoyed this song. It is loud without being overpowering and gentle without being wimpy. It has a full, lush sound and you would easily be forgiven for getting confused and thinking you were listening to an mp3 instead of a mod song. I hesitate to use the term "easy listening" because that is a term that evokes schmaltzy crud but this is one of those instrumentals that works beautifully as a song to which you can relax, or to which you could have a slow dance. It is also one of those rare mods that has a clearly defined beginning, middle and end. At 2.4mb it's a large file but it's definitely worth the effort to download. At 4m26s Beacon is neither too long, nor too short. There are 32 tracks and approximately 36 instruments and samples used. All the instruments and samples are blended together to create a rich, full sound that is very professional.

Written by Novus

Dear friend,

It's been a long time since I released my last song... too long.
Hopefully, this will signify not only my continuing role as a benefactor
of the scene, but also my return as an active participant in it. Sites
such as my Rising Stars of the Scene project are helpful, but they are
useless without the music.

This is my first released song with lyrics, but it is not my first attempt
at lyrics overall. I have a thick folder containing all of my musical
ideas, including numerous examples of lyrics that I've written with ideas
for music to go along with them that I just haven't done anything with
yet. That should change in the future. Usually my lyrics have a direct
personal meaning for me relating to my own experiences and emotions. That
is not really the case here, however. No, I don't have more answers than
anyone else to the questions I've posed here. I've just learned to accept
that it's going to be a long time before I find those answers, if in fact
I ever do. In the meantime, I'm going to live my life as best as I can.
And if I ever get lost, I'll trust that God will let me know so that I can
find my way again.

So, why did I write these words? Perhaps I've been this person before and
just haven't realized it. Or perhaps I'm trying to express the basic human
desire to know, and the basic human frustration at failing to satisfy this
desire. Or maybe there was no reason, and that it was just a bunch of
words, rhythms, and rhymes that gathered in my mind across many sleepless
nights, joined with the musical expressions that had gathered in my mind
across many other sleepless nights, and eventually found their way onto
paper and finally this file. I may never know. I can only hope that
"Beacon" reaches and helps people in even a fraction of the way that my
song "Revealing" has over time.

One final note before I go. In this version of the song, the only words
are the whispered ones from the Bible near the end. But I've been working
with Rebecca Fahrendorf, a good friend who has agreed to lend her
beautiful voice to completing this work. The results will probably be
released as an MP3 sometime in the future, and I guarantee they will be
worth waiting for.

Until next time,
Novus

--Lyrics--

-Verse 1-

Searching for direction
Looking for the way
I try to ask the questions
I don't know how to say

I'm hoping to discover
Just what my life is for
But I just can't uncover
The key to pass this door

-Verse 2-

Gazing at the mirror
Reflecting back my past
I can't see the future
It's coming up too fast

Deeper understanding
Is what I need to find
The search is so demanding
And truth eludes my mind

-Refrain-

I know what I'm seeking
I just need a beacon to find it

Send out a signal
Cut through the lies with Your light

-Spoken- (Matthew 7:7)

Ask, and you will receive
Seek, and you will find
Knock, and the door will open
