Yours Is No Disgrace Lyrics

Artist: Yes
Album: The Yes Album

(Yes and David Foster)

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 change 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, morning, winter, travel very far,
Lost in musing circumstances, that's just where you are.

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 change to winter, yours is no,
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 race,
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,
If the summer change to winter, yours is no,
Yours is no disgrace.
Yours is no disgrace.
Yours is no disgrace.

Real lyric is "lost in losing circumstances". That's straight off the CD insert.

Yup,
"losing circumstances" is correct, though "musing" is a nice one, too!

Also, the second verse repeats at the end and each chorus gains one "silly human."

Totally fan !
by stratojack on 3/2/2009 8:22pm
And all this time I thought it was "See The Human Race"! Just goes to show you what I know!

None of you know that this song was written about me.

I distinctly hear "lost in musing circumstances' which is probably correctly rendered "lost in 'musing circumstances'....as in amusing circumstances; after all, we are the "silly" human race.
by CapnJack on 10/17/2009 2:05am
Musing, yes definately musing.

you are all good people and I love you! yours is no disgrace.

> Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,<

should read "armies gather near"

hint - rhymes with "disappear"

"There's a bad moon on the rising" sounds like "there's the bathroom on the right."

It's about the Resurrection of Jesus.
"Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face". I would imagine that Jesus smiled when he walked out of that tomb, also those who knew him were smiling also.
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race - Jesus lived in the time of Caesar. The Romans and others must have felt awkward hearing of his resurrection.
On a sailing ship to nowhere - a reference to the sinners, which is everyone. "If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace" It doesn't matter what you have done in the past. Be sorry for your past failings & keep Jesus in your hearts & minds. Live the commandments.

"Crawling out of dirty holes - a reference to the evil in the world "their morals disapear"

Ask God for forgiveness - for yours is no disgrace.
by Scotch on 12/4/2011 3:19am
I also thought it was "SEE THE human race", not "silly human race".

As for what it's about, it's a YES lyric; it's about fitting the music and sounding enticing; otherwise it's complete gibberish.

For forty years, I've been convinced that it was a song about Evel Kneivel and his iconic motorcycle jump at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, which failed gloriously.
by chaz on 3/16/2012 10:12am
Caesar's Palace is clearly a reference to Vegas!

This is an anti-war song, especially the Vietnam War. Jon Anderson indicated so in a 1972 interview. The main theme is that the soldiers fighting in that war may give up their morals to do horrible things like killing, but they should not feel disgraced, since they were not responsible for the war, in in many cases were forced to be there. The song has much symbolism, for example, Purple Wolfhound is a term for a certain type of British fighter jet. Morning glory is a flower that blooms in the morning, but dies by the end of the day (a symbol of fleeting mortality).

by Ron B on 9/11/2012 5:11pm
Truth man who told you that?
I've heard Jon Anderson state that the band was in Vegas, he was up partying all night and a young girl walked up to him with some flowers, therefore Caesar's Place Morning Glory has NOTHING to do with Christianity. GEEEEZ

I always thought he said " city hunman race" haha. that was why I came here and now I know haha. As for meaning, I never really knew what the hell it was about and pretty much thought it was just wordplay as somebone else said but, I will say that Absolute_Truth 's interpretation sounds very plausible...it does work pretty good.
