"Living In Victory" as written by and Joacim Anders/dronjak Cans....
Do you remember how we used to say
Everything around us are made of clay
We were the kings and the others the fools,
Playing by our rules

Adorned with golden shapes and silver dreams
You count the seconds, every moment seems
Like your lost to the stars up above
Even though you're falling

Spoken words made of trust, burning bridges between us,
Turning diamonds into rust

You're running out of time, the higher that you climb
The deeper you will fall and lose sight of it all
Out of time, on the line
Living in victory

You spread your words, I say devoid of truth
What's left is fantasy of endless youth
You made a promise, a little white lie
Now you're falling from the sky

Chasing dragons by the moon, burning bridges around you,
Your deepest fears begin to loom

You're running out of time, the higher that you climb
The deeper you will fall and lose sight of it all
Out of time, on the line
Living in victory

Is it someone that hears you, is it somebody there
All you know and all you will get, lie so deep down inside

Dreams of fortune in the dust, when all your bridges are burnt,
Turning being into lust

You're running out of time, the higher that you climb
The deeper you will fall and lose sight of it all
Out of time, on the line
Living in sin

Out of time, the higher that you climb
The deeper you will fall and lose sight of it all
Out of time, on the line
Living in victory
Living in victory

    General Commentcan anyone explain what this song means? is it about love and the one you love but it somehow isn't meant to be?

    (Dreams of fortune in the dust,
    when all your bridges are burnt,
    turning being into lust )

    My InterpretationI interpret this song as being about someone who lost the thread of what they were trying to accomplish and instead got sidetracked into the side benefits of their work, not living FROM victory TO victory. For example, a hotshot employee gets sidetracked from doing his/her job (the thing they're paid for and garners them real attention) to being overly involved in the office politics, gossip and intrigue. They're failing but there's a self-delusional perception they are still making their chops. Of course being Hammerfall, we're talking about a warrior or warlord or king or some such. Going from accomplishments and victories being their source of satisfaction to feasting and partying being their main thing.

    There's also a strong current of getting sidetracked from living and experiencing your life to preserving and cherishing your life for it's own sake. For a man of action, that's quite a reversal, to go from experiencing life as it's own reward to some sort of isolating self-indulgence.

    There is a some sort of betrayal evident in the lyrics, the singer has been betrayed by the subject person of the song. The singer has figured it out though and knows exactly what went wrong with their friendship.

    Anyways, this is the gist of the song as I interpret it.
