(Anderson,Howe)

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 a mortal as we
Here we can be
We can be here,
Be here now.
Here we can be.

AWAKEN SUNS HIGH STREAM THRU AWAKEN
GENTLE STRONG DREAMS BEGIN HERE AWAKEN
MASS .)(. MASS
TOUCH STAR,SONG,AGE,LESS 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 fires 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 things. Master of light.
Songs cast alight on you. All pure chance.
Hark thru dark ties. As exists cross divided.
That tunnel us out of sane existence. In all encircling mode.
In challenge as direct. Oh closely guided plan.
As eyes see young stars assemble. Awaken in our heart.

Master of soul. Master of time.
Set to touch. Setting sail.
All impenetrable youth. Over all of our lands.
Ask away. And as we look.
That thought be contact. Forever closer.
With all that's clear. Shall we now bid.
Be honest with yourself. Farewell, farewell.
There's no doubt, no doubt.

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 a 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.

Like the time I ran away
And turned around
And you were standing close to me.

    The constant rising of the sun day after day is mankinds focal point to awakening. Throughout the history of man, God has given us all the gift of His bright star, to warm us, and awaken our heart and mind to our noble birthright. As His gentle sun touches all, past and present, a mass effect awakens all who are honest enough with themselves to see. Whether in dreams or in the daily mortal struggle, we are all united across continents and periods of history. Let one mans awakening be linked to another, in a timeless chain. Then He can be there, as if the sun were stopped in its endless cycle and stood still. Only the Master of time can overrule time, and touch us all in an instant, a mass awakening. To experience it leaves us with no doubt, we are connected. Even when our mortal time is over, the awakening continues, He will forever be with us. At times we have rejected Him, but when we remember our longing for His contact, our soul is touched again. He never left, He was all the time standing right there, ready to light another awakening.

    Jon Anderson is notably one of the most spiritual writers of our time. I believe this being said, the sheer importance of life in itself lends total merit to a divine creator. And this is what this title is paying homage to. This life we live, has been compared to nothing more than "school". Rightly said. Thanks Jon and the rest of YES.
