Close To The Edge Lyrics - Yes

Review The Song (3)



[I The Solid Time Of Change]

A seasoned witch could call you from the depths of your disgrace
And rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace
And achieve it all with music that came quickly from afar
And taste the fruit of man recorded losing all against the hour
And assessing points to nowhere, leading every single one
A dewdrop can exalt us like the music of the sun
And take away the plain in which we move
And choose the course you're running

Down at the end, round by the corner
Not right away, not right away
Close to the edge, down by a river
Not right away, not right away

Crossed the line around the changes of the summer
Reaching out to call the color of the sky
Passed around a moment clothed in mornings faster than we see
sponsored links
Getting over all the time I had to worry
Leaving all the changes far from far behind
We relieve the tension only to find out the master's name

Down at the end, round by the corner
Close to the edge, just by a river
Seasons will pass you by
I get up, I get down
Now that it's all over and done
Now that you find, now that you're whole

[II Total Mass Retain]

My eyes convinced, eclipsed with the younger moon attained with love
It changed as almost strained amidst clear manna from above
I crucified my hate and held the word within my hand
There's you, the time, the logic, or the reasons we don't understand

Sad courage claimed the victims standing still for all to see
As armoured movers took approached to overlook the sea
There since the cord, the license, or the reasons we understood will be

Down at the edge, close by a river
Close to the edge, round by the corner
Close to the end, down by the corner
Down at the edge, round by the river

Sudden cause shouldn't take away the startled memory
All in all, the journey takes you all the way
As apart from any reality that you've ever seen and known
Guessing problems only to deceive the mention
Passing paths that climb halfway into the void
As we cross from side to side, we hear the total mass retain

Down at the edge, round by the corner
Close to the end, down by a river
Seasons will pass you by
I get up, I get down

[III I Get Up, I Get Down]

In her white lace, you could clearly see the lady sadly looking
Saying that she'd take the blame
For the crucifixion of her own domain

I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down

Two million people barely satisfy
Two hundred women watch one woman cry, too late
The eyes of honesty can achieve
(She would gladly say it amazement of her story)
How many millions do we deceive each day?
(Asking only interest could be layed upon the children of her domain)

I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down

In charge of who is there in charge of me
(She could clearly see the lady sadly looking)
Do I look on blindly and say I see the way?
(Saying that she'd take the blame
For the crucifixion of her own domain)
The truth is written all along the page
(She would gladly say it amazement of her story)
How old will I be before I come of age for you?
(Asking only interest could be layed upon the children of her domain)

I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down

I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down

[IV Seasons Of Man]

The time between the notes relates the color to the scenes
A constant vogue of triumphs dislocate man, so it seems
And space between the focus shape ascend knowledge of love
As song and chance develop time, lost social temp'rance rules above
Ah, ah

Then according to the man who showed his outstretched arm to space
He turned around and pointed, revealing all the human race
I shook my head and smiled a whisper, knowing all about the place
On the hill we viewed the silence of the valley
Called to witness cycles only of the past
And we reach all this with movements in between the said remark

Close to the edge, down by the river
Down at the end, round by the corner
Seasons will pass you by
Now that it's all over and done
Called to the seed, right to the sun
Now that you find, now that you're whole
Seasons will pass you by

I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down

Comment on Yes | Reviewer: Brian Hale | 10/3/12

The members of Yes were (in my opinion) all incredibly gifted and talented artists. What they did is not simply rock & roll, it is music of the universe, transgending all musical form. I have been listening to them for over 30 yrs and am still amazed at their artistry and talent. Biased though I may be, I have yet to hear anyone who can compare with this kind of music with the possible exception of Pink Floyd and Tangerine Dream. I thank them all for expanding my mind and showing that truly, imagination is more important than knowledge. Messers Anderson, Bruford,Squire and Howe you all have my respect and love, please keep on keeping on with the magic that you do!!! With great Love and Respect I offer you Peace and Blessings always. Sincerely, Brian Lee Hale

A Modern Masterpiece | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/11

This is the seminal composition of the original (and still considered the strongest)line up of the British progressive rock band, Yes. The suite is based upon the book "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse and explores the ideas and themes Hesse presented in is novelized life of the Buddha.
The lyricism of Anderson,the virtuosity of How, Bruford, Squire and Wakeman combined to make the "Close to the Edge" suite a masterpiece that long outlives it's "pop chart" success in the 1970s. In Close to the Edge, and the ancillary works contained on the album: (ex> "Siberian Khatru" "And You and I") one can hear the genesis of the many compositions the individual members of Yes created during the succeeding 40 years of their creative lives.
"Close to the Edge" id still performed by the individual current as well as byline-up of the band in concert; and attempted with varying levels of success by other musicians in other contexts.
