Sister Bluebird flying high above,
Shine your wings forward to the sun.

Though you've seen them, please don't say a word.

I have seen many many a concert and I Enjoyed YES very.
Nick.low26. It is Yes, after all. Cut 'em some slack.

Pandora your listed lyrics are way off please update them so I will stop believing you know this little about the music you stream this is not the only occurrence. Please stop sucking at what you do.
There are few live versions I like better than the studio version. This is definitely one of them.
Mother ship is Takin off
Saw the Tormato tour in the round the day before 18th birthday with my brothers & best friends.Jon quietly announced it was Yes' 10th anniversary & the audience rocked out with 1 of the best Yesshows ever IMO.Sadly I am the lone survivor of that night but always revisit our shared music & experiences through YES.Rock on Starship Troopers!

My dad showed me this group when I was a very young child. By the time I was 10 my siblings and I knew every word and beat to every yes song. growing up now with this music a part of my soul, reading the amazing poetry within the lyrics..the message is there. Only few will understand, those who do will forever be connnected -

When GOD sings . He plays YES!!!! I feel so close to heaven hearing Jon and the boys play their hearts bringing joy to all who get YES xoxo
Good line-up great version
When God wants to hear good music he puts on Yes, and says, Oh My SELF!
No argument here. I love this song.
Looks like it was 3 and 4 years ago that the comments below were made about Bruford. Just wanted to throw my two cents at it. Bill Bruford was the best percussionis t Yes ever had, IMO. His signature open drum rolls made your heart skip a beat with 'em. Alan White could lay out a beat and keep it going, but as far as capturing my interest - Bruford has always been my favorite. Crimson, Yes, U.K.
Never grows old. Wurm. Live Yes. Enough said. Peace.

The Keys To Ascension DVD is great. It features the ultimate YES line up ( Anderson, Squire,Howe, W a k e m a n & White). I highly reccomend this DVD if you don't already have it. YES ROCKS!!!!!
I had this record on CD its in some box out in I idaho - forever to be lost - love this version - I cannot believe that YES will not realize there mistake and get Jon Anderson back in the band - love the jam at the end between Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman and in my opinion Allan White is a swinging drummer - this song reminds me of being a young teenager in the 70s - FM radio was very adventurous in those days - oh by the way Chris Squire rules on the Bass.

Love this song...so beautiful.

Hey PAndora, The lyrics are incorrect. Take another listen
Not my favorite version, but a great one nonetheless!
A masterpiece! Love the Yes albums from the early 1970s--(The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, Fragile). You can't go wrong with these.
Set your Bic to high and feel the heat! Encore!
SHAAAAAAAAAA A A A

Beautiful Song....I love Yes...Very Original.
philcotv
I agree...this is a superb version...be i n g a keyboardist, I appreciate the nuances of the extended lead ending...

That's what makes Bruford such an amazing drummer. His style makes the original song a more complex arrangement. Very few drummers have the ability to play off time and off beat and make it work. Take a listen to his playing for King Crimson. His percussion skills makes you think.
Oh, please! Bruford sounded like he was drunk & playing a different song altogether!
cmjarrells
An amazing song ruined by Alan White's drumming. Bill Bruford did an outstanding job with his off time/off beat skills.
this is the best version of this song
