From the album Trinity One
Atmospheric and visual, this propulsive far-reaching tune burns with a 12/8 Afro Cuban jazz fusion edge. A surging keyboard solo crests into a powerful drum solo by Bill Berg. One of the thoughts behind this tune was to write a simple two note melody on the verse. There are cycles of parallel major seventh harmonies, with some wonderful bass work contributed by Jimmy on the end.
"In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Kebar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God...
As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the ground beside each creature with its four faces. This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel. As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the creatures faced; the wheels did not change direction as the creatures went. Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.
When the living creatures moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the living creatures rose from the ground, the wheels also rose. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When the creatures moved, they also moved; when the creatures stood still, they also stood still; and when the creatures rose from the ground, the wheels rose along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels." Ezek. 1:1, 15-21 (NIV)
