And You And I….Classic Yes track from 1972.

From Yes’s progressive rock classic album, Close To The Edge (from the fall of 1972) comes, “And You And I”. This track was the first and longer of the two songs that made up side two. It remains a thing of beauty after all these years…happy to finally get a vid for it. This was a very tough video to finish, mainly because I was working on both this track and the title track at the same time, and kept getting effects crossed up and had a hard time deciding which things to use in which video. The result was a bit of a compromise as I was seriously struggling to keep each video a separate and unique project, with just enough shared effects to tie them together. “Close To The Edge” is well on it’s merry way….but I’m gonna have to spend some time away from it for awhile (or I’ll just rush through chunks without worrying too much about repeating or timing, as I ended up doing with this one….it’s not too bad though, I’m just glad to be finished as it was starting to feel like work! 😉

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible; especially the clips from “Winged Migration”…this is one extremely beautiful film and the few seconds I used don’t begin to do it justice. Check it out: http://www.sonyclassics.com/wingedmigration/index_flash.html

[Lyrics]
A man conceived a moment’s answer to the dream
Staying the flowers daily sensing all the themes
As a foundation lent to create the spiral aim
A movement regained and regarded both the same
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you

Changed only for a sight of sound the space agreed
Between the picture of time behind the face of need
Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid
Emotions revealed as the ocean made
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you

Coins and crosses
Never know their fruitless worth
Cords are broken
Locked inside the mother Earth
They won’t hide they won’t tell you
Watching the world watching all of the world
Watching clouds go by

And you and I climb over the sea to the valley
And you and I reached out for reasons to call

[II Eclipse]

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid
Emotions revealed as the ocean made
As a movement regained and regarded both the same
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you

[III The Preacher, The Teacher]

Sad preacher nailed upon the coloured door of time
In the same teacher be there reminded of the rhyme
There’ll be no mutant enemy we shall certify
Political ends as sad remains will die
Reach out as forward tastes begin to enter you

I listened hard but could not see
Life’s tempo change out and inside me
The preacher trained in all to lose his name
The teacher travels asking to be shown the same
In the end we’ll agree we’ll accept we’ll immortalize
That the truth of man maturing in his eyes
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid
As a moment regained and regarded both the same
Emotion revealed as the ocean made
A clearer future morning evening nights with you

[IV Apocalypse]

And you and I climb, crossing the shapes of the morning
And you and I reach over the sun for the river
And you and I climb, clearer towards the movement
And you and I called over valleys of endless seas
