"One Little Victory" as written by and Neil Peart Alex Lifeson....
A certain measure of innocence
Willing to appear naive
A certain degree of imagination
A measure of make-believe

A certain degree of surrender
To the forces of light and heat
A shot of satisfaction
In a willingness to risk defeat

Celebrate the moment
As it turns into one more
Another chance at victory
Another chance to score

The measure of the moment
Is a difference of degrees
Just one little victory
A spirit breaking free

One little victory
The greatest act can be
One little victory

A certain measure of righteousness
A certain amount of force
A certain degree of determination
Daring on a different course

A certain amount of resistance
To the forces of the light and love
A certain measure of tolerance
A willingness to rise above

One little victory
One little victory
One little victory
One little victory

Celebrate the moment
As it turns into one more
Another chance at victory
Another chance to score

The measure of the moment
Is a difference of degrees
Just one little victory
A spirit breaking free

The greatest act can be
One little victory
The greatest act can be
One little victory

One little victory
One little victory
One little victory
One little victory

Just one little victory
Just one little victory
One little victory
One little victory

    General CommentThis song is about the Knight of Wands, who symbolizes youthful rebellion. I think from the lyrics it's pretty clear what the Knight believes/does.

    General CommentI think it's about winning a playoff game and being able to continue in the playoffs. It is also about the small difference between winning and losing and is about different things you can win and lose at in life besides actual games. Lastly I think the band sees their comeback as one little victory after being away from music for so long while dealing with Neil's personal tragedies.
