This is Victory

All round the table, a ne'er do well crew
Feasting on beast like all warriors do
Fresh from the battle, still stained with the blood proudly sing
Songs of war and victory

Seventeen, full of ego and piss
A young sailor boy with apple red lips
When pirates attacked them, no courage he lacked then and he
Knew the first time victory
Over demons that gnaw on a man
They'll eat you away til you cant even stand
Breaking the silence, one day you'll stand up and see
This is Victory


Fifty years old, like dust on the shelf
Lived ten years longer than anyone else
His brothers all died without grey on their chins, but he
Held in his heart victory


Ugly Jim, never said where he been
But he'd beat a man down just for looking at him
He fought many battles and killed many men, still but he
He never knew victory
Over demons that gnaw on a man
They'll eat you away til you cant even stand
Breaking the silence, one day you'll stand up and see
This is Victory
