NO OPPORTUNITY NECESSARY, NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED
written by Richie Havens
arranged & performed by YES.

Step out in the night
When you're lonely
Listening for the sounds
That your ears don't hear
I know your cross is heavier
With every step, every step
But I know a man
And he'd walk miles for you

Stop! You stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself
Can't tell your mama
She'd only tell ya
That she told you so
The life you're leading
She won't believe
The real trick of life we all know

Dawn turns to day
And the dawning
Daytime nighttime
And we still can't see
Why must we wait
Until the morning light?
To wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be

LOOKING AROUND
written by Jon Anderson & Chris Squire
arranged & performed by YES

Looking around me
There's not so much in life I miss
Things that I can't see
I'll touch and I'll feel then I'll kiss

Then I saw you standing there
With a smile I couldn't share
Just looking around everywhere

Tunes that I can't hear
Would take me for a while my smile
Fares that are too dear
I'd rather walk out another mile

Then I heard a tune so right
It was in the light of night
Just listening around everywhere

All the things I've wanted to do
Take so much time to get around to you
Just reach out and catch and hold on
Leaving trails of dust and lust
Never even lying or trying
Keep on moving, never dying

Smiles that I don't see
I'll make them up as I go on
Laughs that just can't be
I'll make and laugh at every one

Then I saw you in your place
With a laugh upon your face
Just looking around everywhere

All the things I've wanted to do
Take so much time to get around to you
Just reach out and catch and hold on
Leaving trails of dust and lust
Never even lying or trying
Keep on moving, never dying

Looking around
With my feet on the ground
Full of words and of sound
Bringing smiles all around

Satisfy me
With your words that can be
Full of sound and I'll see
I'm just looking around

SURVIVAL
written by Jon Anderson
arranged & performed by YES

Sunshine is creeping in and somewhere in a field a life begins
An egg too proud to rape the beginning of a shape
of things to come
That start the run, life has begun, fly fast the gun

The mother flew too late, and life within the egg was left to fate
Not really knowing how the world outside would take
it when it came
And life's the same for things we aim, are we to blame?

Don't doubt the fact there's life within you
Yesterday's endings will tomorrow life give you
All that dies, dies for a reason
To put its strength into the seasons
Survival, survival
They take away and they give
the life that they live
(The living's right to live)
It's all that we need to show
(The living's right to know)

The egg breaks all is out the crawling bird begins
To scream and shout
Where is the parent bird? A loneliness arose and heard its name
Ring in for lives begin, survival wins, survival sins

So soon the evening comes and with it runs the aching
Fear of hate could someone still remain who thinks he
Still could gain by escaping fate? It's much too late
Don't underrate, appreciate

Don't doubt the fact there's life within you
Yesterday's endings will tomorrow life give you
All that dies, dies for a reason
To put its strength into the seasons
Survival, survival
They take away and they give
the life that they live
(The living's right to live)
It's all that we need to show
(The living's right to know)

Survival, Survival
They take away and they give and the life that they live
The living's right to live
(It's all that we need to give)
The living's right to know
(It's all that we have to show)
And we're all going (And we're all going)
And we're all going (And we're all going)
And we're all going somewhere
