Yes lyrics - Album: Tales from Topographic Oceans [1974]

The Revealing Science of God - Dance of the Dawn

SHRUTIS: The Revealing Science of God can be seen as an ever-opening flower

in which simple truths emerge examining the complexities and magic of the past

and how we should not forget the song that has been left to us to hear. The

knowledge of God is a search, constant and clear.

Dawn of light lying between a silence and sold sources,

Cahsed amid fusions of wonder, in moments hardly seen forgotten

Coloured in pastures of chance dancing leaves cast spells of challenge,

Amused but real in thought, we fled from the sea whole.

Dawn of thought transfered through moments of days undersearching earth

Revealing corridors of time provoking memories, disjointed but with

purpose,

Craving penetrations offer links with the self instructor's sharp

and tender love as we took to the air, a picture of distance.

Dawn of our power we amuse redescending as fast as misused

Expression, as only to teach love as to reveal passion chasing

Late into corners, and we danced from the ocean.

Dawn of love sent within us colours of awakening among the many

Won't to follow, only tunes of a different age, as the links span

Our endless caresses for the freedom of life everlasting.

Talk tothe sunlight caller

Soft summer mover distance mine

Called out a tune but I never saw the face

Heard but not replaced

I ventured to talk, but I never lost my place

Cast out a spell rendered for the light of day

Lost in lights array

I ventured to see, as the sound began to play

What happened to this song we once knew so well

Signed promise for moments caught within the spell

I must have waited all my life for this

Moment moment

The future poised with the splendour just begun

The light we were as one

And crowded through the curtains of liquid into sun

And for a moment when our world had filled the skies

Magic turned our eyes

To feast on the treasure set for our strange device

What happened to wonders we once knew so well

Did we forget what happened surely we can tell

We must have waited all our lives for this

Moment moment moment

Star light movements in seasons

Release forward

Tallest rainbow

Sun shower seasons

Life flower reasons

They move fast, they tell me,

But I just can't believe that I can feel it

There's someone, to tell you,

amidthe challenge we look around in unison with you

Getting over overhanging trees

Let them rape the forest

Thoughts would send our fusion

Clearly to be home

Getting over wars we do not mean

Or so it seems so clearly

Sheltered with our passion

Clearly to be home

They move fast, they tell me,

But I just can't believe they really mean to

There's someone, to tell you,

And I just can't believe our song will leave you

Skyline teacher

Warland seeker

Send out poison

Cast iron leader

And through the rhythm of moving slowly

Sent through the rhythm work out the story

Move over glory to sons of old fighters past.

Young Christians see it from the beginning

Old people feel it that's what they're saying

Move over glory to sons of old fighters past.

The move fast, they tell me,

But I just can't believe they really mean to

There's someone, to tell you,

A course towards a universal season

Getting over overhanging trees let them

Rape the forest, they might stand and leave them

Clearly to be home

Getting over wars we do not mean

We charm the movement suffers

Call out all our memories

Clearly to be home

We've moved fast

We need love

A part we offer is our only freedom

What happened to this song we once knew so well

Signed promise for moments caught within the spell

We must have waited all our lives for this

Moment moment

Past present movers moments we'll process the future, but only

To touch him we know, send flowered rainbows

That chased flowers of dark and lights of songs

To you, show all we feel for and know of, cast round,

Youth is the truth accepting that reasons will relive

And breathe hope and chase and love

For you and you and you

The Remembering - High the Memory


(Words by Anderson - Howe; Music by Yes)

Suritis: The Remembering. All our thoughts, impressions, knowledge,

fears, have been developing for millions of years. What we can

relate to is our own past, our own life, our own history. Here, it

is especially Rick's keyboards which bring alive the ebb and flow

and depth of our mind's eye; the topographic ocean. Hopefully we

should appreciate that given points in time are not so significant

as the nature of what is impressed on the mind, and how it is

retained and used.

As the silence of seasons on we relive abridge sails afloat

As to call light the soul shall sing of the velvet sailors course on

Of the velvet sailors course on

Shine or moons send me memories trail over days of forgotten tales

Course the compass to offer into a time that we've all seen on

Into a time that we've all seen on

High the memory carry on

While the moments start to linger

Sail away among your dreams

The strength regains us in between our time

The strength regains us in between our time

As we shall speak to differ also the ends meet the river's son

So the ends meet the river's son

Ours the story shall we carry on

And search the forest of the sun

We dream as we dream! Dream as one

And I do think very well

That the son might take you silently

They move fast

They tell me

There's someone rainbow

Alternate tune

In the days of summers so long

We danced as evenings sang their song

We wander out the days so long

And I do feel very well

That the evenings take you

Silently. They move round

Sunlight, seeing ground

Whispers of clay

Alternate ways

Softer messages bringing light to a truth long forgotten on

As we shall speak to differ also the ends meet the river's son

So the ends meet the river's son

I reach over and the fruit of life stand still

Stand awhile we search our past we start anew

The music sings of love you knew We walk around the story

Out in the city running free

Sands of companions sides that be

The strength of the meeting lies with you

Wait all the more regard your past

School gates remind us of our class

Chase all confusion away with us

Stand on hills of long forgotten yesterdays

Pass amongst your memories told returning ways

As certain as we walk today

We walk around the story

Out in the city running free

Days pass as seconds turn they key

The strength of the moment lies with you

Don the cap and close your eyes imagine all the glorious challenge

Iron metal cast to others

Distant drums

Force the bit between the mouth of freedom didn't we learn to fly

Remember to sail the skies

Distant suns

Will we reach

Wiunds allow

Other skylines

Other skylines to hold you

Relayer

All the dying cried before you

Relayer

We've rejoiced in all their meaining

Relayer

We advance we retrace our stories

Like a dreamer all our lives are only lost begotten changes

We relive in seagull's pages

Outwards ways.

Things are all in colours and the size of others shall send you

forward

Arrange to sail you toward

A peace of mind

Will we reach

Winds allow

Other skylines

Other skylines to hold you

Relayer

All the passion spent on one cross

Relayer

Sail the futile wars they suffer

Relayer

We advance we retrace our story, fail safe now

Stand on hills of long forgotten yesterdays

Pass amongst your memories told returning ways

As certain as we walk today

Press over moments leaving you

Out in the city running free

Days pass as seconds turn the key

The strength of the moment lies with you

Out tender outward lights of you

Shine over mountains make the view

The strength of you seeing lies with you

Ours entrance we surely carry on

And change the passing of the sun

We don't even need to try we are one

And I do think very well

As the truth unflods you

Silently

They move time

Rainbows

Sunlight

Alternate tune

Alternate tune

Rainbows

Soft light

Alternate view

Sunlight

Tell me

Someone

Alternate view

Alternate view, surely, surely

The Ancient - Giants Under the Sun


(Words by Anderson - Howe; Music by Yes)

Puranas: The Ancient probes still further into the past beyound the

point of remembering. Here Steve's guitar is pivotal in sharpening

reflection on the beauties and treasures of lots civilisations,

Indian, Chinese, Central American, Atlantean. These and other people

left an immense treasure of knowledge.

As one with the knowledge and magic of the source

Attuned to the majesty of music

They marched as one with earth

Sol, Dhoop

Sun

Ilios

Naytheet

Ah Kin

Saule

Tonatiuh

Qurax

Gunes, Grian

Surie

Ir

Samse

So the flowering creativity of life wove its web face to face with

the shallow

And their gods sought out and conquered

Ah Kin

Do the leaves of green stay greener through the autumn

Does the colour of the sun turn crimson white

Does a shadow come between us in the winter

Is the movement really light

And I heard a million voices singing

Acting to the story that they had heard about

Does one child know the secret and can say it

Or does it all come out along without you

along without you

along without you

Where does reaon stop and killing just take over

Does a lamb cry out before we shoot it dead

Are there many more in comfort understanding

Is the movement in the head

And I heard a million voices singing

Acting to the story that they had heard about

Does one child know the secret and can say it

Or does it all come out along without you

along without you

along without you

Ritual - Nous Sommes du Soleil


(Words by Anderson - Howe; Music by Yes)

Tantras: The ritual seven notes of freedom to learn and to knowthe

ritual

of life. Life is a fight between sources of evil and pure love. Alan

and Chris

present and relay the struggle out of which comes a positive source.

Nous sommes

du soleil. We are of the sun. We can see.

Nous sommes du soleil. We love when we play.

Nous sommes du soleil. We love when we play.

Open doors we find our way

We look we see we smile

Surely daybreaks cross our path

And stay maybe a while

Let them run, let them chase

Let them hid between

Constant doors will open eyes

As life seems like

Life seems like a

Fight, fight, fight

Maybe I'll just sing awhile

And then give you a call

Maybe I'll just say hello

And say maybe that's all

Hurry home as love is true

Will help us through the night

Till we're coming home again

Our life seems like

Life seems like a

Fight, fight, fight

Catch as we look and use the passions that flow

As we try continue

We receive all we venture to give

Maybe we'll just stand awhile

And surely we can call

Dreams are said to blossom courage

Constant to the soul

Change we must as surely time does

Changes call the course

Held inside we enter daybreaks

Asking for asking for

The source

The source

The source

Sent as we sing our music's total retain

As we try and consider

We receive all we venture to give

All we say is our

Soul constant sight listener

We won't tender our song clearer

Till we sail

Then I will be there

And I will be there

As clearer companions

Shall call to be near you

They move around tell me that

Move around surely sing

As they don't seem to matter at all

At all at all ...

Hold me my love, hold me today, call me round

Travel we say, wander we choose, love tune

Lay upon me, hold me around lasting hours

We love when we play

We hear a sound and alter our returning

We drift the shadows and course our way on home

Flying home

Going home

Look me my love sentences move dancing away

We join we receive

As our song memories long hope in a way

Nous sommes du soleil

Hold me around lasting ours

We love when we play

Nous sommes du soleil

Nous sommes du soleil

Nous sommes du soleil
