Running 21:55, this was a band composition, credit to Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Patrick Moraz, Chris Squire
and Alan White. Anderson wrote the lyrics to go along with the music. The song describe a battle, with a prelude, a charge, a moment of victory, and a peace. "It's not to explain war or denounce it really," he said. "It's an emotional description with the slight feeling at the end of, 'Do we have to go through this forever?"
