"Victory Dance" as written by and James Edward Olliges Jr....
Should I close my eyes and prophesize
Hoping maybe someday come
Should I wet the ground with my own tears
Crying over whats been done

Should I lift the dirt and plant the seed
Even tho I've never grown
Should I wet the ground with the sweat from my brow
And believe in my good work
My good work
My good work
My good work

Hey there, I'm flying up above
Looking down on the tired earth
And I can see, I can see potential
Speaking through you, speaking to you
From all of heaven's possibilities

Power, hey do you know how it works
Hey do you know that the meek, they shall inherit the earth
You should work, you should work
If only serving the family

Should I hit the water or stay on dry land
Even though I've never swam
Take machete into the brush
Though at first there is no (man?)

Taste the war paint on my tongue
As it's dripping with my sweat
Place my gaze in the futures path
Seeing things that ain't come yet

Hope to watch the victory dance
After whole day's work is done
Hope to watch the victory dance
In the evening's setting sun

Hope to watch the victory dance
Over many lives to come
Hope to watch the victory dance
In the evening's setting sun

Setting sun
Setting sun
Setting sun

Hope to dance the victory dance
After whole day's work is done (setting sun)
Hope to dance the victory dance
In the evening's setting sun (setting sun)

Hope to dance the victory dance
Over many lives to come (setting sun)
Hope to dance the victory dance
In the evening's setting sun (setting sun)

    General Comment"Place my gaze in the futures path/Seeing things that ain't come yet"
    In every example there is a hope not quite understandable. "the taste the war paint on my tongue...its dripping with my sweat", to me would be poison excreting out mixing in with "my own sweat". He is dying of lies.

    General CommentI love this song. Agree that "Golden" is their best, but this is such an awesome song about taking responsibility in your life and taking a leap, even in uncertain times. I like that they lead with the alternative: sitting around and blaming your problems on everything else. Believing in oneself, focusing on your vision for the future, and working hard to obtain it is really all that life is about. Even if you fail, you have the personal satisfaction of knowing you gave everything you could. Great song.
