...For Victory Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. War (1:16)
2. Remembrance (3:43)
Remembrance

Nightmare world
Reflected as a dream
Vision blurred

This surely can not be
Twisted now
Far from reality
Delving into depths
Mankinds depravity

Violated planet - world bureaucracy
Graved with resentment - global lunacy

Stricken thoughts
Terror overrides
Pierce the fragments
Of the mind

Deep regret now
Engraved upon the soul
Mortality now echoes
Throughout this world

Avarice - leads to compulsion
Ruined world - beyond recognition

When we understand
Will it be too late
To future generation
A legacy of hate
3. When Glory Beckons (3:59)
When Glory Beckons

When glory beckons
With no regrets
On this day of sorrow
The course now set
End of life converges
A sweet release
Away from turmoil
To find peace

Death now approaching
Where is victory?
At one with the earth
For all eternity
Pride now forgotten
Fighting for life
Strenght decreasing
Twisting the knife

Now to leave - departure of the soul
With relief - eternity unfolds

Do not be sad - the pulse now gone
The war of life continous - this battle now is won

Mourn no more - reaching eternal rest
Remember with no sadness - the final request

Now to leave - departure of the soul
With relief - eternity unfolds
4. ...For Victory (4:50)
...For Victory

As daylight returns
The fires of hope still burn
Crawl through darkened light
Sickened by the mournful sight
Tears fall from eyes
Not sure what has been done
Sorrow creeps throughout my soul
All is lost, none have won

The battle smoke remains
Begin to feel the pain
Alone now stagger on
Unsure how it begun
Through time war previals
Thoughts fears cast aside
Face the consequence alone
With honour - valour - pride

As fire fills the sky
We once believed in life
Now time to die
...For Victory

Now in deaths glory
Mans final destiny
The final price to pay
...For Victory

"They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condem.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them."
"We will remember them"
5. Graven Image (4:00)
Graven Image

Words cannot explain
Darkest thoughts within the mind
Centuries of hatred
Now subside
Commencing the birth
Of new life
Rise from the wreckage of the past

Words cannot explain
The feeling agony within
Anguish summoned
Perception begins
All secrets now revealed
You cannot win
Searching in hope of a new age

All feelings put aside
Numbed by the vision
Nothing left alive
Facing devastation

Awakened in remorse
To rebuild from destruction
Recreate life's evolution

No chance for redemption
All life now ceased
Pleading for forgiveness
There shall be no peace
6. Lest We Forget (4:37)
Lest We Forget

War to end all wars
Hatred lost control
Casualties now mounting
Tales yet still untold
Life's eradication
Of man now beyond all reason
Totally insane
The human race becomes

Lest we forget - thoughts will always haunt the mind
Lest we forget - the bitterness remains

Vast termination
Man made rationality
Complete elimination
Of life beyond brutality
Eternal resentment
Re-occurs time after time
Driven to despair
Extinction drawing near

Commence removal of all things valued in life
The persecution what was once believd right
Humanities objective now totally deranged
When ignorance transpires, this world becomes insane.
7. Silent Demise (3:55)
A Silent Demise

From darkness
Through mists of time
Centuries, aeons past
Requiem of mankind
Withdrawn in darkness
Prepared to die
Awaiting silence
Anticipation subline

A silent demise

Indignant by nature
A tragedy profound
When put to the test
Determination found
Horror within
Dissipates away
Falling to your knees
The time has come to pray...to pray

To have no faith... silent demise
Yet still believe...
To have no faith... silent demise
But not deceived

To have no faith - yet still believe
To have no faith - but not deceived
To have no faith - in all the lies
To have no faith - now as we die
8. Forever Fallen (3:47)
Forever Fallen

Driven onwards
Past the point of no return
Into the unknown
Of lessons never learnt

Their names - immortal
Remembered evermore
In memory of glory
Forever fallen

Standing proud
Battles raging all around
Fading past
The revelation abound

Anger predominates the mind
Gathering all strength
Tenacity is found

Honour now forgotten
Fear lost inside
Despair no longer
At all wasted life

Their names - immortal
Remembered evermore
In memory of glory
Forever fallen

Now forgotten - all thoughts of yours gone by
Fallen forever - forever fallen
Life denied
9. Tank (MK I) (4:15)
Tank (Mk.I)

As innocence dies
All tranquility subsides
Running trepidation
Isolated now
Separating all ideas
Must escape but how

With no loss of pride
Terror emerges from inside
Screaming from within
Taste the smell of fear
Feeling in the air
Damnation drawing near

No beauty in this death
Encased forever
Powerless to resist
As life slips away...away

No cries of pity
No reason to repent
We have condemned the future
Life cheaply spent

Technology arise
There shall be no compromise
The stunned arrival
Followed by the blind
Helplessly now falling
Leaving life behind
10. Armageddon Bound (5:13)
Armageddon Bound

On the edge - spirit begins to break
Chances unsure - not much more you can take
Weakness grows - nerves start to crack
Far from safe - there is no turning back

A fine line - between victory and defeat
At the midpoint - uncertainty complete
Confusion prevails - unsure which way to move
Holding no hope - there is nothing more
nothing more to prove

Trying to discover what is right
And what is wrong
Judged by false criteria
Ideals strong
Misfortune predictable
Lessons learnt before
Decisions now justified
Perpetuate this war

This battlefield wide open
No territory gained
Within this wasteland
Humanity constrained

Here in no mans land
No mercy can be found
Delirious perspective
Armageddond bound.
