Harold Land

This song is by Yes and appears on the album Yes (1969).

Harold Land, with a wave of his hand
Said goodbye to all that
He paid his bills and stopped the milk
Then put on his hat
He tried to say his last farewells
As quickly as he could
Promising that he would return
But doubted that he would
(Doubted that he would)
Doubted that he would
(Doubted that he would)
Doubted, now

He's marching soldiers in the rain
As on to war they rode
A long thin line of human mind
Damnation as their load
In the mud in coldness dark
He'd shiver out his fear
What disappointing sights he'd seen
Instead of ones so dear
(Instead of ones so dear)
Instead of ones so dear
(Instead of ones so dear)

(Going home)
He's going home to the land he loved so well
(Going home)
He fought for two whole years, he never fell
(Going home)
He's going home
(Going home)
He's going home

Harold Land, with a wave of his hand
Stood sadly on the stage
Clutching red ribbons from a badge
But he didn't look his age
Only two years had passed between
His leaving home and back
He had lost his love and youth
While leading the attack
(Leading the attack)
Leading the attack
(Leading the attack)

In conversation it could be said
Well after war your heart is dead
Well it's not hard to understand
There is no heart in Harold Land
