Lyrics of Yes - Children of Light (I.Lightning II.Children of Light III.Lifeline)

Children Of Light

A) children of light
(anderson/vangelis/squire)
Distant as the distant thunder
where equal rights for [will] rent assunder
equal rights for equal people
[this] disregard for love's equality
Bringing back the signs to no-man's land
where diamonds and gold in hand
will barter as the homeless burn
someday will it be our turn?
Why this consciousness this desire
to expand the flame of revolution
with a [the] gothic hand in [of] fire persecution
blood-letting and [in] spinning pain?
Why this hungry media delivering
questions answers blessed forgivers [plus forgive us]
millions of racial inequalities
we all are one
all are sacred
Be the birth of a nation
stop this aggravation
so uninspired
and [to] question man's inhumanity
and lack of love for his cosmic god
Children of light don't be afraid
children of light haven't you heard
gone are the days in black and white
children of light don't be afraid
Distant as the distant thunder
where equal rights for [will] rent assunder
equal rights for equal people
[this] disregard for love's equality
Bringing back the signs to no-man's land
where diamonds and gold in hand
will barter as the homeless burn
someday will it be our turn?
Someday will it be our turn?
someday will it be our turn?
Children of light don't be afraid
children of light haven't you heard
gone are the days in black and white
children of light don't be afraid

b) lifeline
(wakeman/howe)
[instrumental]
