Notes: What kind of mood are you in?  The title track really rocks 
out. Children of Chernobyl is simply gorgeous as it builds up to big 
orchestral chords with lots of sweeping piano runs. The lyrics to It's 
Your Move make plenty of references to YES titles: sample lyrics 
include:
     
     Roundabout is no disgrace
     A word in time confusion
     Cans and Brahms were just a way
     of forming an illusion
     Total mess retain eclipse and 
     you and I the preacher
     Cord of life get up get down
     Just listen to the teacher
     We have heaven
     When the circus came to town
     Run around the sunrise
...
     Don't eat meat except on Monday that's the funday
     See you later generator
     Going for the one we are the sun
     Not forsaken just awaken

Hey, don't ask me. Here's another clue for you all: the walrus was 
Paul.  I never claimed to understand lyrics...
