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, Chased amid fusions of wonder, in moments hardly seen forgotten Colored in pastures of chance dancing leaves cast spells of challenge, Amused but real in thought, we fled from the sea whole. Dawn of thought transferred through Moments of days under searching 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 to the 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 splendor just begun The light we were as on

Jules from The Great White NorthThis is my calming song. Whenever life is getting to me and anxiety builds, I sit and sing this. I love the music, the words and the voices. It's a masterpiece. I was 13 when this album came out and couldn't get enough of it.
Ramsa from UkWhat is the name of the "four part shastric scriptures" mentioned? I've often wondered. We didn't have the internet to find out back when I first got into this album.
Anyone who puts this in a list of the worlds worst albums can't have actually listened to it. It's awesome.
Mark from Jefferson City, MoTrippy!
Stephen from Cape Canaveral, FlWhat is interesting, is to correct the punctuation as written out. For example, "Disjointed but with purpose we fled to sea. Whole" If doing this throughout the song it takes in more meaning that as simply disconjointed parts. ..of which make a whole...which is the essence of much of all of their music. Young Christians see it.
Claude from Kingston, MaThe other night for my own entertainment I was looking at a lists of the worst albums of all time. I almost fell off my chair when I saw Tales included. The opening of this album is one of the most spine chilling moments I've ever heard. I still get goosebumps when it builds to the crescendo ".....for the freedom of life everlasting!"
Julie from Marquette, MiI agree and LOVE the Keys to Ascension version. This is probably my favorite song of ALL time. I am a HUGE Yes fan and this song never gets old. It is an amazing piece of work...as is so much of what Yes does.
Rick from Mount Ephraim, NjThis song is breathtaking. The live version on "Keys to Ascension" is magnificent. It seems that, with newer technologies in music, that Yes' older music sounds better now than it did when first released on record.
Like the Beatles, it is mind boggling what they've been able to do with equipment that was primitive by today's standards.
Mike from Baltimore, Mdmind blowing album. haven't got a clue as to what anderson is singing about and don't care. the music is awesome. it's a shame it drove wakeman away from the band. but he came back. even now i can cruise down the road with "Tales" on the ipod singing at the top of my lungs. yeah, i know the lyrics by heart....just don't know what they mean. so what
Mars from Edinburgh, ScotlandPerforming the album "Tales From Topographic Oceans" live on tour in 1974, Jon Anderson introduced this song as "A jumble of trips".
Reg from Kemptville, OnPersonally, I've always been impressed by the music, not the lyrics. Imagine -- a rock album in 4 movements rather than a collection of pop songs. I had been waiting for such an album for quite a while before this was released. No surprise it came from Yes. I could sit in my darkened bedroom and listen to the entire piece without the need for any visual stimulation. (I'm still that way vis-a-vis videos.)

Max from Sydney, AustraliaThis concept album is based on the four part Hindu Shastric scriptures
Max from Sydney, AustraliaI think this song is really good because it really does reaveal the science of God such as somtimes waiting all your life for a great,fantastic moment.In the lyrics they say "I must hav waited all my life for this, moment moment moment."
