"The Calling" as written by Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Chris Squire....
Feel the calling of a miracle
In the presence of the word
Now we hold the right to rearrange
How the stories can be heard

In the beginning is the future
And the future is at hand
I'll be calling voices of Africa
Be the rhythm to the plan

From the Congo to Lenasia
Be the writing on the wall
I'll be calling the colors of India
See the Asian life explode

[Chorus]
Head into the headlight
Don't turn from the rain
There's a fire raging somewhere near
like a longtime friend who's
Seen it darker than ebony
Take off on the turnpike
(Asking for the first call)
Give me more of the same
(Asking for a song)
There's a fire burning in my heart again

I'll be calling the dragons of China
See the dancers of the Nile
See the wings of change are on display
This revelation mine

Feel the calling of the miracle
In the presence of the word

[Chorus]

Feel the calling of a miracle
The revelation mine

    General CommentI absolutely love this song and I was very surprised to see that no one had ever commented on it before on this site. Oh well... I guess I'll just have to be the first. I don't understand why, but this song doesn't seem to be one of yes's popular songs. Please correct me if I'm wrong, because I think its amazing.

    General CommentUnfortunately, this entire album is severely underrated. It's ridiculous, though... Talk is full of great songs.
