"Perpetual Change" as written by and Jon/squire Anderson....
I see the cold mist in the night
And watch the hills roll out of sight
I watch in every single way,
Inside out, outside in, every day

The sun can warm the coldest dawn
And move the movement on the lawn
I learn in every single day,
Inside out, outside in, every way

And there you are,
Making it up but you're sure that it is a star,
And boy you'll see
It's an illusion shining down in front of me,
And then you'll say
Even in time we shall control the day,
When what you'll see
Deep inside base controlling you and me

And one peculiar point I see,
As one of many ones of me
As truth is gathered, I rearrange,
Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,
Perpetual change

And there you are,
Saying we have the moon, so now the stars,
When all you see
Is near disaster gazing down on you and me,
And there you're standing,
Saying we have the whole world in our hands,
When all you'll see,
Deep inside the world's controlling you and me
You'll see perpetual change
You'll see perpetual change

And there you are,
Making it up but you're sure that it is a star,
And boy you'll see
It's an illusion shining down in front of me,
And then you'll say
Even in time we shall control the day,
When all you'll see
Deep inside base controlling you and me

As mist and sun are both the same,
We look on as pawns of their game
They move to testify the day,
Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,
All of the way
Ah, ah

    General CommentKnowing what I know now about liberal politics (which I do NOT happen to agree with), I see this song as a "perpetual change" for radical liberalism. "Inside out, outside in" those who are familiar with the "top down, bottom up, inside, out" strategy that radical liberals are using to create a new world order. Radicals from the 60's and 70's said that there would be a slow, or "perpetual" change. "The day's controlling you and me" and the "world's controlling you and me" and "move the movement on the lawn". To me these all have to do with radical liberalism. Brilliant for that time, because if you look back at these lyrics, they really are prophetic.
