"Silent Victory" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
Somewhere beneath the laughter
The anger begins to affect her
Timid like a Chinese whisper
Calm like a needle in the eye of a twister

We won't surrender
Until the end
Truthful pretenders
Won't someone hear the battle-cry?
She said
You're a substitute
She said
Can't you see we're through?
One more silent victory
Victory

Struggling hard to forget her
He slowly begins to regret her
Anger is all that she lived for
Walked over his life
And then out through the front door

We won't surrender
Until the end
Truthful Pretender
Like somebody seized the day
Love ran away
She said
You're a substitute
She said
Can't you see we're through?
One more silent victory
Victory

    General Commentdefinitely a "relationship gone wrong" song, the two verses ("somewhere beneath..." and "struggling hard...") seem to be from the woman and the man's points of view...but the pre-chorus is confusing. I'd love to see someone else's view on it, migh clarify my view.

    General CommentPurely from a sonic point of view, the song is an attempt at making a punky AC/DC song(and a pretty good one at that). The pre chorus is like a shout-along refrain. The pre chorus appear to mean nothing in a lyrics context.

    General CommentWell the lyrics don't seem too much AC/DC (which are a lot about sex, booze and rocking) but the guitarwork definitely sounds it. Good call.

    General Commentmaybe this is a chik trying to get revenge on an exboyfriend? he's trying to forget it... and she doesn't want to. she's pretending she's already forgotten. " She said 'you're a substitute',
    She said 'can't you see we're through?' "
    maybe she's trying to make him seem the one who still hangs on? maybe...?
