lyrics

BREATH OF THE VICTORY MARCH

Simple to take a step with thee
Forward then, and on your knees
Everyone take a look at the stars
Simple to take a single stride
Toward then and bow down with pride
On your shoulders
Reaching for the stars
Everyone take a look at the stars

Another step and a march begins
Moving then and we all will win
Everyone sees the third step not so far
Another stride in time with all
The drums will drive this past the wall
Of stubborn standards staring from so far
Everyone sees this march could take us far

Lighting torches, grabbing swords and knives
Guns and shells would soon arrive
The only thing that’s scarce is victory
Hail to the champion of
Victory of war, not love
Look for the white flag waving for victory

Victory is what is sought
Vision goes past what is fought
Vows that rows of people have died for
Victory to continue through
The different ways to get to you
Is what they go to all this trouble for
Is the way they go worth dying for?

Another simple step with thee
We, the people, on our knees
Marching, yet, a path with ways to war
Something in the stride we lend
Is possibly finally different
Maybe come a fork, we’ll veer from war
Or march down the glory path to war

Lighting torches, grabbing swords and knives
Guns and shells would soon arrive
The only thing that’s scarce is victory
Hail to the champion of
Victory of war, not love
Look for the white flag waving for victory
Victory

Simple to take a step with thee
Forward then, and on your knees
Everyone take a look at the stars
Simple to take a single stride
Toward then and bow down with pride
On your shoulders
Reaching for the stars
Everyone take a look at the stars
Everyone take a look at the stars
Everyone take a look at the stars
Everyone needs to stop
Everyone needs to stop and take a look at the stars
