Justice to the left of you
Justice to the right
Speak when you are spoken to
Don't pretend you're right
This life's not for living
It's for fighting and for war
No matter what the truth is
Hold on to what is yours

Jigsaw puzzle traitors
Set 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 you 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
Wait
Take your time Sunshine shine on through
See it through
Hold on
Hold on
Wait
Maybe a chance Sunshine shine on through
Is looking for you 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 Hold on - Hold on
Sunshine
Shine on through Wait - Take your time
See it through
Sunshine
Shine on
Shine on through Hold on - Hold on
Sunshine
Shine on you Wait - Maybe the answer's looking for you

    General CommentThis has always been my favorite song by YES. Although I never paid attention to the lyrics for years, I can now understand why I liked it so much. It is an anti political song. Politics equals corruption. WE can do without it.
