"The Gates of Delirium" is the first track on Yes's 1974 album, Relayer. Based on Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace,[1] the song begins with a prelude, which leads into a lengthy instrumental section (beginning at about the 8 minute mark) representing the battle. The final section (entitled "Soon"), released as a single in 1975, is a very gentle, soothing prayer for peace and hope which represents the aftermath of the battle. Before the re-issue of Tales from Topographic Oceans or In a Word: Yes (1969 - ), this was the longest officially released studio recording by the band with almost 22 minutes, taking up the entire first side of the LP. ~ Wikipedia

Soon

Soon oh soon the light
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you

Our heart is open
Our reason to be here

Long ago, set into rhyme

Soon oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

Soon oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here
