Yours Is No Disgrace
Yesterday A Morning Came A Smile Upon Your Face
Caesar's Palace Morning Glory Silly Human Race
On A Sailing Ship To Nowhere Leaving Any Place
If The Summer Changed To Winter Yours Is No Disgrace

Battleships Confide In Me And Tell Me Where You Are
Shining Flying Purple Wolfhound Show Me Where You Are
Lost In Summer Born In Winter Travel Very Far
Lost In Losing Circumstances That's Just Where You Are

Yesterday A Morning Came A Smile Upon Your Face
Caesar's Palace Morning Glory Silly Human, Silly Human Race
On A Sailing Ship To Nowhere Leaving Any Place
If The Summer Changed To Winter Yours Is No, Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace

Death Defying Mutilated Armies Scatter The Earth
Crawling Out Of Dirty Holes Their Morals, Their Morals Disappear
Yesterday A Morning Came A Smile Upon Your Face
Caesar's Palace Morning Glory Silly Human, Silly Human, Silly Human Race
On A Sailing Ship To Nowhere Leaving Any Place
If The Summer Changed To Winter Yours Is No, Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace
Yours Is No Disgrace

Battleships Confide In Me And Tell Me Where You Are
Shining Flying Purple Wolfhound Show Me Where You Are
Lost In Summer Born In Winter Travel Very Far
Lost In Losing Circumstances That's Just Where You Are
The Clap

A Venture


Once a peaceful man laid his old head down by a river,
Thought about his childhood life, his father and forgiver,
Couldn't hide away, hide away.

He controlled the horses with a handclap or a whisper,
Drink he couldn't combat but he knew he was no sinner,
Couldn't hide away, hide away.

He told all his sons of all the antics of adventure,
Then he told another one who drove himself to drink
Not to hide away, hide away.

Better men have realized alone is not a venture,
A decent man would realize alone is not a venture,
Just to hide away, hide away.

He told all his sons of all the antics of adventure,
Then he told another one who drove himself to drink
Not to hide away, hide away.
Perpetual Change


I see the cold mist in the night
And watch the hills roll out of sight.
I watch in ev'ry single way,
Inside out, outside in, ev'ry day.

The sun can warm the coldest dawn
And move the movement on the lawn.
I learn in ev'ry single day,
Inside out, outside in, ev'ry way.

And there you are,
Making it up but you're sure that it is a star,
And boy you'll see
It's an illusion shining down in front of me,
And then you'll say
Even in time we shall control the day,
When what you'll see
Deep inside base controlling you and me.

And one peculiar point I see,
As one of many ones of me.
As truth is gathered, I rearrange,
Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,
Perpetual change.

And there you are,
Saying we have the moon, so now the stars,
When all you see
Is near disaster gazing down on you and me,
And there you're standing,
Saying we have the whole world in our hands,
When all you'll see,
Deep inside the world's controlling you and me.

You'll see perpetual change.
You'll see perpetual change.

And there you are,
Making it up but you're sure that it is a star,
And boy you'll see
It's an illusion shining down in front of me,
And then you'll say
Even in time we shall control the day,
When what you'll see
Deep inside base controlling you and me.

As mist and sun are both the same,
We look on as pawns of their game.
They move to testify the day,
Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,
All of the way.
Ah, ah.
