Yes', "And You And I"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The teacher trained in order to lose his name
The preacher traveled, asking to be shown the same
Why They're Nonsensical:
Where did the teacher take this kind of exam?

Yes', "Awaken"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Workings of man, crying out from the fires set aflame
By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being
is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly
Why They're Nonsensical:
Just about all of Jon Anderson's lyrics are vague 'feel-good' generalities that lead nowhere. This is one perfect example if you ask me.

Yes', "Circus Of Heaven"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
A unicorn headed the mystical way
Why They're Nonsensical:
Ouch, Unicorns! a red flag moment. Yes was never the same to me after that. never took them seriously again. That Tormato album was chock-full of those new age landmines, UFOs, Whales, Bright Fairies . . . . . . god, get me a hackysak and a jesters costume!

Yes', "Close To The Edge"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
A seasoned witch can call you from the depths of your disgrace
Why They're Nonsensical:
I don't even know where to start with this one. Seasoned with habanero sauce? Seasoned by years of disgrace depth calling? I am a fan of this band and even the song, but geeze!
