The Gates of Delirium Lyrics

Artist: Yes
Album: Relayer

La la, la la la la la la
la la la la la la la, la la la.

Stand and fight we do consider
Reminded of an inner pact between us
That's seen as we go
And ride there
In motion
To fields in debts of honour defending

Stand the marchers soaring talons
Peaceful lives will not deliver freedom
Fighting we know,
Destroy oppression
The point to reaction
As leaders look to you attacking

Choose and renounce throwing chains to the floor
Kill or be killing faster sins correct the flow
Casting giant shadows off vast
Penetrating force
To alter via the war that seen
As frictions spans the spirits' wrath ascending to redeem

Wars that shout in screams of anguish
Power spent passion bespoils our soul receiver
Surely we know.
In glory we rise to offer,
Create our freedom, a word, we utter a word.

Words cause our banner, victorious our day
Will silence be promised as violence display
The curse increased we fight the pow'r and live by it by day
Our Gods awake in thunderous roars and guide
The leader's hands in paths of glory to the cause

Listen should we fight forever
Knowing as we do know
Fear destroys?
Listen should we leave our children?
Listen our lives stare in silence
Help us now

Listen your friends have been broken
They tell us of your poison
Now we know
Kill them give them as they give us
Slay them burn their children's laughter
On to Hell

The fist will run
Grasp metal to gun
The spirit sings in crashing tones we gain the battle drum
Our cries will shrill the air will moan and crash into the dawn
The pen won't stay the demon's wings, the hour approaches
Pounding out the Devil's sermon

Soon oh soon the light
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you
Our reason to be here

Soon oh soon the time
All we move to gain will reach and calm
Our heart is open
Our reason to be here

Long ago, set into rhyme

Soon oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

Soon oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

'....kill or be killing, faster sins correct the flow...'

Does this not represent our leaders' attitude and stance since 9/11/2001? If we commit enough atrocities, the atrocious becomes somehow less offensive. Our skins grow thick and we don't respond anymore as we should- as compassionate human beings.

Couldn't the Gates of Delerium be describing our post-9/11 world, some 25+ years after it was written?

Yes, This is one of my favorite bands and my Dad's favorite songs...

we've send many a time simply listening to this song and realizing how the word always seem to be current and can refer to any violent conflict really...

The title, the lyrics, the music...

It all fills one in another in such a complex way just flows...

Not just a single time I wonder how they can devise (and then actualize) a song like this.

God bless Yes.
