VICTORY

With blade in hand I face my foe
I rush him in then I’ll land the blow
Tilt him back and cut his mane away
A slave is gained for ascendant strength
We have no rulers but we know the length
It takes to tell the stories old one day

We’re going down, down in history
Raise our hand up, up in victory
We’re going down, down in history
Raise our hand up, up in victory
Fight for life
Hear our cries
Sun and cloud collide
We stake our prize
We’re going down, down in history
Raise our hand up, up in victory
We’re going on
Watch us lead the way

Climbed atop the mountain
Because it stood in our way
Bathed with crimson ribbons
Streaked down our face
We had a million reasons
To give and get away
Oh give it to me, give it to me, give it to me now now
With the ancestor’s watching
We’re going to make them all so proud
