Awaken
by Yes

Album: Going For The One (1977)
  • High Vibration go on
    To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
    Past a mortal as me
    Where can I be

    Wish the sun to stand still
    Reaching out to touch our own being
    Past all mortal as we
    Here we can be
    We can be here
    Be here now
    Here we can be

    Awaken gentle mass touch

    Suns high streams through
    Strong dreams reign here
    Star, song, age, less

    Awaken gentle mass touching

    Workings of man
    Set to Ply out historical life
    Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree
    All awakening
    All restoring you

    Workings of man
    Crying out from the fire set aflame
    By his blindness to see that
    The warmth of his being
    Is promised for his seeing
    His reaching so clearly

    Workings of man
    Driven far from the path
    Rereleased in inhibitions
    So that all is left for you
    All is left for you
    All is left for you
    All this left for you now

    Master of Images
    Songs cast a light on you
    Hark through dark ties
    That tunnel us out
    Of sane existence
    In challenge as direct
    As eyes see young stars assemble

    Master of Soul
    Set to touch
    All impenetrable youth
    Ask away
    That thought be contact
    With all that's clear
    Be honest with yourself
    There's no doubt no doubt

    Master of light
    All pure chance
    As exists cross divided
    In all encircling mode

    Oh closely guided plan
    Awaken in our hearts

    Master of Time
    Setting sail
    Over all of our lands
    And as we look
    Forever closer
    Shall we now bid
    Farewell farewell

    High Vibration go on
    To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
    Past a mortal as me
    Where can I be

    Wish the sun to stand still
    Reaching out to touch our own being
    Past all mortal as we
    Here we can be
    We can be here

    Like the time I ran away
    And turned around
    And you were standing close to me Writer/s: JON ANDERSON, STEVE JAMES HOWE
