"The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus)" as written by and Chris Squire....
As one with the knowledge and magic of the source
Atuned to the majesty of music
They marched as one with earth
Sol, Dhoop
Sun
Ilios
Naytheet
Ah Kin
Saule
Tanatiuh
Qurax
Gunes, Grian
Surie
Ir
Samse
So the flowering creativity of life wove its
Web face to face with the shallow
And their gods soought out and conquered: Ah Kin
Do the leaves of green stay greener through the autumn
Does the colour of the sun turn crimson white
Does a a shadow come between us in the winter
Is the movement really light
And I heard a million voices singing
Acting to the story that they had heard about
Does one child know the secret and can say it
Or does it all come out along without you
Along without you
Along without you
Where does reason stop and killing just take over
Does a lamb cry out before we shoot it dead
Are there many more in comfort understanding
Is the movement in the head
And I heard a million voices singing
Acting to the story that they had heard about
Does one child know the secret and can say it
Or does it all come out along without you
Along without you
Along without you

    Song MeaningAccording to Michael Tait, the band's lighting director, Anderson called him "at ten o'clock one night from Advision Studio and said, 'I want the name of prehistoric fish in eight syllables. Call me back in half an hour'". Tait subsequently found Schindleria praematurus, a species of marine fish, in a copy of Guinness Book of Records.

    Wikipedia says: "Schindleria is a genus of marine fish. It is the only genus of family Schindleriidae, among the Gobioidei of order Perciformes. The type species is S. praematura, Schindler's fish. The Schindleria species are known generically as Schindler's fishes after German zoologist Otto Schindler (1906–1959), or infantfishes. They are native to the southern Pacific Ocean, from the South China Sea to the Great Barrier Reef off eastern Australia."
