"Miracle of Life" as written by Trevor Rabin and Mark Mancina....
Hold on to the miracle of life...

Sacred lives emotions been washed away like mud.
You don't want my devotion;
You'd rather be washed in blood.
Can we turn away from this open anger?
Can it all betray?
Can't you feel the danger to the miracle of life.

Sing when open hearts are calling,
Shout with open eyes (To the miracle of life)
Far below the deepest treasure
To the miracle of life

Living in times of luster, waiting for the flood.
We don't agree with your concepts;
You'd rather be washed in blood.
Is it any wonder? (In my lifetime)
Cold depth of blue water...
Is it any wonder? (In my lifetime)
Rising tide to slaughter...

Sing when open hearts are calling,
Shout with open eyes (To the miracle of life)
Far below your deepest pleasure
To the miracle of life
Pacifica... Indian... Atlantica... Antarctica

    General Comment"Washed in blood" is a Christian reference. It is a euphemism for being born again (i.e. washed in the blood of Jesus.) If that's the intended meaning, this song appears to be a rejection of Christianity. Or, at least how it is all-too-often practised. (That is, being judgemental of others, rather than being in a state of simple, child-like appreciation of God's wonders, and the miracle of simply being alive.)

    Or it could mean something else altogether. Who the hell knows? It's Yes, after all! I never know what ANY of their lyrics mean...I just love their music.

    In my humble opinion, the artistry and complexity of the music, and the virtuoso musicianship of each member of Yes, makes them the standard for all progressive bands...all their drama, personnel changes, and changes in musical style over the years notwithstanding.
