Victory Lyrics

~~~~~~~~
When I set out on this journey
I thought it would never end
When I started down that road
I could not see the end
And when I took that first step
I fell in so deep
And all those things that were so hard-won
I thought I would always keep
Now what do you think I see
Standing like a wall in front of me
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Chorus:
So what are you going to do? Die?
No
You gonna lay down and die?
No
I will not admit defeat
I will not admit defeat
I will see victory
Pride and deceit
Have choked my life like weeds
And I lost sight of what I really had
What I really need
And all the things I should've valued
I gave away for a prayer and a song
And now when I reach out for them
They are gone
Now you know what I see
Standing in front of me
Like a headstone
A fucking monument to human misery
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Chorus
Do I have any friends here?
I can't see
Are any of my friends here?
I can't see
What about you?
Will you be a friend to me?
What about you?
Will you be a friend to me?
I've got a question to ask you
And then you can ask it of me
It's a simple request
And then you can make it of me
Can you forgive me?
Can you see what will be?
Is it victory?
Now I can't show you all the things I've seen
And I can't make you feel anything
Certainly not what they meant to me
And someday I know, no matter how hard we try
We are all going to have to lay down and die
So maybe I should just tell you
What I hope and believe
For every defeat there will be a victory
For every defeat there will be a victory
In defeat, victory
