"Holding On" as written by William Scott Bruford, Rick Wakeman, Jonathan Elias, Jon Anderson and Steve James Howe....
Justice to the left of you
Justice to the right
Speak when you are spoken to
But don't pretend you're right

This life's not for living
It's for fighting and for wars
No matter what the truth is
Hold on to what is yours

Jigsaw puzzle traitors
Sent to spill the beans
Constitution screw up
Shattering the dreams

Blood flows in the desert
Dark citadels burning too
Watch, look over your shoulder
This one is strictly for you

Hold on, hold on
Wait, maybe the answer's looking for you
Hold on, hold on
Wait, take your time think it through
Yes, I can make it through

Hold on, hold on
Sunshine, shine on through
Hold on, hold on
Sunshine, shine on you, see it through

Talk the simple smile
Such platonic eye, how they drown in incomplete capacity
Strangest of them all
When the feeling calls, how we drown in stylistic audacity
Charge the common ground

Round and round and round we living in gravity
Shake, we shake so hard
How we laugh so loud
When we reach we believe in eternity
I believe in eternity

Hold on, hold on
Sunshine, shine on, see it through
Hold on, hold on
Sunshine, shine on you

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

Sunshine, shine on, shine on you
Sunshine, shine on through
Sunshine, shine on, shine on through
Sunshine, shine on you

Sunshine, shine on, shine on you
Sunshine, shine on through
Sunshine, shine on, shine on through
Sunshine, shine on you

    General CommentThis is from the "Union" record. A great song. I think that goes into the questions that plaque mankind. Where we go when we die. "When we die that's all that is" Is there reincarnation? "How many times is Time Enough"... Finding that truth that lives inside of us and then holding onto it. running with it. Believing in it. And believing in ourselves. Maybe in the quest to find enlightenment.. we just find ourselves.
