The Ladder (Homeworld) by Yes

Nothing can take us far enough
Emotion ... far enough together
As the light shines so bright
Bright enough to let us in.

Nothing can bridge our souls'
Devotion ... fast enough together
As the power proves you right
Right enough to let you begin.

So many displaced among the future dreamers
Realised their doubles
Took a new step
A question of origin.

Only in the recent past
Seeking for to realise
Skyward shone
Like beacons
A question of origin.

Ten thousand millions free
To the westward light
The dreamers represent
This arc of peace.

As the poets entranced
The anchor redeemed
Secrets or science
The history of the future
Was surely made.

Just what keeps us so alive
Just what makes us realise
Our home
Is our world, our life
Home is our world.

Nothing can take us far enough
Emotion ... far enough together
As the light shines so bright
Bright enough to let us in.

Nothing can bridge our souls'
Devotion ... fast enough together
As the power proves you right
Right enough to let you begin.

Speak so fast to the prophets
Of the living
Looking for the signs
Spanning out the centuries
Search for truth

Ancient ones ... they watch
And listen
Carry our wishes...
Took upon themselves to guide us
through the endless skies.


Just what keeps us so alive
Just what makes us realise
Our home
Is our world, our life
Home is our world.
Our hope is our world, our life.

I have seen the passion
that's in the hope that everyone
Will find their way into
The secret of
The home of your heart.

Living within the vision
Within the power, beyond belief
We see that hate destroys the soul
Of anyone who tries to teach it.

I have seen the dream
That's in your heart
That's in your eyes
To bring you closer to the one.

It's what keeps us so alive
It's what makes us realise
Our home is our world, our life
Just what keeps us so alive
Just what makes us realise
Our home
Is our world, our life
Home is our world, our life.

Send, ascending to the secrets
All is pure and clear to resolve
Nothing can change us now
Send, ascending to the future
Nothing can ever change us now
We follow the sun
We follow the sun
We follow the sun.

Truth is a simple place
Here for us all to see
Reach as it comes to you
As it comes to me
As I will always need you inside my heart.

Peace is a word we teach
A place for us all to reach
Sing as it sings to you
As it sings to me
As I will always need you inside my heart.

repost from 9-11

be extra kind to your fellow humans. go out of your way to help at least one person. try to avoid all thoughts of hate and retribution. cry if you need to. laugh if you can. hug more than usual. find peace and spread it around.
