State Of Independence
Anderson (Jon) and Vangelis Lyrics


State of life, may I live? May I love?
Coming out the sky, I name me a name

Coming out-silver word-what it is
It is the very nature of the sound the game
Siamese, Indionese. To Tibet treat the life
As a game, if you please

(Hey)
Coming up, Carabi, this sense of freedom
Derives from a mediative state

Movin' on, 'believe' that's it, call it magic
Third world, it is, I only guessed it

Shablam idi shablam ida
Shablam idi shablam ida
Shablam idi shablam ida

Shot to the soul-the flame of Oroladin
The essence of the word
The 'state of independence'

Sounds like a signal from you
Bring me to meet your sound
And I will bring you to my heart

Love like a signal you call
Touching my body, my soul
Bring to me, you to meet me here

Home be the temple of your heart
Home be the body of your love
Just like holy water to my lips

(hey, hey)
Yes I do know how I survive
(yes I do know) know why I'm alive
To love and be with you
Day by day by day by day

(hey, hey)
Say-aye yaya oh
(yayah yaya oh)
'be the sound of higher love' today

(yayah)
(hey, hey)
Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all-in his wisdom-hear
His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
Time, time again, it is said
We will hear, we will see
See it all-in his wisdom-hear
His truth will abound the land
This truth will abound the land

This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be
This state of independence shall be

This song is pure magic, no need for pictures, music speaks for it's self.

Finally the full version of this multi-facetted, new age, world music, funk-inspired work is on YT. I am not wise enough to decipher Anderson's new age(?) lyrics, but I love everything about this orchestration right from Dick Morrissey on the sax to every little detail of Vangelis' synth instrumentation. Jon Anderson's vocals are outstanding on this - by far the best - Jon & Vangelis album. It's no suprise that Quincy Jones 'Americanized' this song after it was released, but this original rocks

This is how Reggae sounds in outer space! The long vocal phrasing by Jon is mesmerizing. I love this track.

Jon Anderson has been involved with utterly glorious music - "Wondrous Stories" "The Revealing Sciene of God" and this one... In fact it's a lot more than music, this guy is in tune with some pretty powerful and beautiful superior powers.

A masterpiece...

DurhamGooner1

Ouch, I never knew this was the original, never heard of it and I'm a HUGE fan of Jon Anderson! Wonderful.

Dhalpourie

Anyone who would be so perceptive to consider the genius of Vangelis in the way Quincy did with such transliterated knowing in Donna Summer version of this track is definitely a master craftsman.

Elizabeth Díaz

Jon Anderson... qué recuerdos más lindos... su música siempre me llegó tan profundo... solo, con Yes, Vangelis, Kitaro.. Mágico!!!
