How about buying the album, then you'll probably know.
When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

Good so now you know.

i wrote in the review for it:

phase 1

‘Progressive Waves’ has to be given special mention as it is a huge keyboard solo between Emerson and Rudess; a simply gobsmacking moment of the album. Emerson is brilliant of course and I love to hear his unmistakeable trademark staccato Hammond sound. Rudess on the Continuum is a master in his own right and gets some amazing sounds out of that weird contraption of his.

and

in phase 2

The second epic is ‘Symmetry’ opening with grand guitar and ethereal pipes until a throbbing synth locks in and some wonderful phased lead guitar motifs. This one has the foreign sound of ‘Loser’ from “The Human Equation”. The deep resonating lyrics tell the tale, “I don’t mean to interfere but I see quite a change in you”. The tale unfolds where the Teacher implores “We can play a part changing history, our time is near” This is followed by the observations of The Psychiatrist “I have to say it’s unusual, such a transformation overnight, I wouldn’t have thought it was possible, I don’t want to scare you but it can’t be right” and the Son replies “A world of endless wonder lies ahead.” The synth solo to follow is wonderful sounding very retro and 80s, then an ascending riff of distorted power crunches along till it moves to a fast tempo chugging metal riff. I love this section at 5:10 and the Hammond underneath is nicely placed. A lead guitar solo and Rick Wakeman’s keyboard workout follows with grinding organ a constant presence. 


and in phase 4

An Egyptian sounding melody enters, with some wonderful flourishes on keyboard and Steve Hackett’s guitar. Acoustics chime in and the Father’s lyrics “is this your work, be honest now, how did you do it, I’m not angry boy, but I really need to know.”

Great review. I read it on the front page, you are one of the best reviewers here.
