Yes – Starship Trooper Lyrics 7 years ago
I totally agree with the "limits of speech" interpretation.
THOUGH YOU'VE +SEEN+ THEM, PLEASE DON'T +SAY+ A WORD.
THOUGH YOU'VE +SEEN+ THEM, PLEASE DON'T +TELL+ A SOUL.
CATCH MY KNOWLEDGE HIGHER THAN THE DAY.
LOOSE AS MUCH AS ONLY YOU CAN +SHOW+.
You can fully understand only by experiencing something on your own. Words cause confusion, give way to many different interpretations, thus are inaccurate ways of communication. That's why he asks different knowledgeable entities not to say anything, but only to show.

THE SETTING UP OF OTHER ROADS TO TRAVEL ON IN OLD ACCUSTOMED WAYS.
Knew knowledge (OTHER ROADS) can be understood through experience ( OLD ACCUSTOMED WAYS)

LONELINESS IS A POWER THAT WE POSSESS TO GIVE OR TAKE AWAY FOREVER.
Loneliness is the lack of communication. You can "give" others loneliness, that is, express something in an unclear way, so that you are "not together on the facts", you see 1 thing differently;
OR you can take this barrier away by just experiencing something together, looking at the same facts.
ALL I KNOW CAN BE SHOWN BY YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FACTS, THEY'RE SHOWN BEFORE YOU.
TAKE WHAT I SAY IN A DIFFERENT WAY AND IT'S EASY TO SAY THAT THIS IS ALL CONFUSION.

Yes – Perpetual Change Lyrics 7 years ago
Energy is the cause of change, things are not constant, so let's use more Present Continuous Tense

THE SUN CAN WARM THE COLDEST DAWN
AND MOVE THE MOVEMENT ON THE LAWN.
the energy contained in the sun is the cause of change
it changes temperature and causes wind

AND THERE YOU ARE,
MAKING IT UP BUT YOU'RE SURE THAT IT IS A STAR,
...
IT'S AN ILLUSION SHINING DOWN IN FRONT OF ME,
the Sun is something more than *just* a star

WHEN ALL YOU'LL SEE, DEEP INSIDE THE DAY'S CONTROLLING YOU AND ME.
the Sun (in the middle of the day we're the closest, it's the easiest to see), is controlling people.

AS ONE OF MANY ONES OF ME.
I am changing all the time, it is wrong to see a person as a noun, there are many "me"s, always changing, always showing different aspects

AND ONE PECULIAR POINT I SEE
...
,AS TRUTH IS GATHERED, I REARRANGE,
INSIDE OUT, OUTSIDE IN, INSIDE OUT, OUTSIDE IN,
PERPETUAL CHANGE.
I try to see things from many perspectives, not just from my point of view

AND THERE YOU'RE STANDING,
SAYING WE HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD IN OUR HANDS,
.....
AND THEN YOU'LL SAY
EVEN IN TIME WE SHALL CONTROL THE DAY,

WHEN ALL YOU'LL SEE,
DEEP INSIDE THE WORLD'S CONTROLLING YOU AND ME.
People are not as strong as all this change-causing energy, so let's not be so sure we're in control here. Let's just accept we're verbs, heh.

Yes – I've Seen All Good People: Your Move/All Good People Lyrics 7 years ago
chess = war ("my country" and "their country")
chess=life ("me" and "them")
I'VE SEEN ALL GOOD PEOPLE TURN THEIR HEADS EACH DAY
SO SATISFIED I'M ON MY WAY.
Soldier, so sure he's doing the right thing, all his fellow citizens cheering him.
TAKE A STRAIGHT AND STRONGER COURSE TO THE CORNER OF YOUR LIFE.
Follow orders blindly, so that you end up at the corner of your life, dead. (the other corner of a chess board, where you can be easily captured)
MAKE THE WHITE QUEEN RUN SO FAST SHE HASN'T GOT TIME TO MAKE YOU A WIFE.
If you focus on making an enemy out of different nations, they will be concentrating their efforts on defending themselves (RUNNING FAST) instead of possibly developing a good relationship.


'CAUSE IT'S TIME, IS TIME IN TIME WITH YOUR TIME AND ITS NEWS IT CAPTURED
FOR THE QUEEN TO USE.
reference to chess again, when if it's the opponent's move, you are suspended in time, and the opponent sees "the news" (your movements) and the queen can now use it to her advantage. Same with real-time war, when the news is captured, information is used by the media to one nation's advantage. news is captured in a short video/a photo, that can be manipulated.

MOVE ME ON TO ANY BLACK SQUARE,
USE ME ANY TIME YOU WANT,
JUST REMEMBER THAT THE GOAL
IS FOR US ALL TO CAPTURE ALL WE WANT.
YEA, YEA, YEA.
an individual is used by the government, just like a chess piece, in the Statist view of black ("our") and white ("their") worlds. This view is mocked by saying "yeah yeah yeah", ironically. From now on the song gives us a different view, and advice follows:



DON'T SURROUND YOURSELF WITH YOURSELF,
Don't look at the world as only "us" and "them". Don't identify yourself with either black or white chess pieces. Go mingle.
MOVE ON BACK TWO SQUARES
Moving forward and attacking isn't progress. If you refrain from attacking, it is the REAL move forward ("MOVE ON"), although it's seen as a move backwards ("MOVE BACK").
At the beginning of a chess game, a pawn can move forward 2 squares. But what if he didn't? What if he said no to starting a war and did the opposite thing?
SEND AN INSTANT KARMA TO ME
Don't initiate violence. Initiate love.
