Lyrics

THE GLORIOUS AND TRAGIC

CHORUS

THE CLARION CALL OF THE NEW BORN BABY'S CRYING

THE GASPING GROAN OF SOMEBODY DYING

THE GLORIOUS AND TRAGIC , SIDE BY SIDE

ALL THE TIME

1.ON ONE CORNER OF THE EARTH – JOY , VICTORY , ECSTACY AND MIRTH

IN ANOTHER PAIN , SUFFERING AND THE SLOW WITH HEADS HELD LOW

DRONE OF THE FUNERAL DURGE

ON ANOTHER TV TRAY'S ADORNED WITH DELECTABLES

WATCHING WIDE- EYED STARVING CHILDREN

CHORUS


2.I DO MY VICTORY DANCE , WHILE YOU WRITHE IN PAIN

I HAVE MY VICTORY FEAST , WHILE YOU BURY YOUR DEAD

AND DOES MY CONFIDENCE SURGE WITH EACH NEW BREATH

WHILE YOU FISH-LIKE TRY CATCH ONE OF YOURS

CHORUS

3.AND VICTORY AND DEFEAT , THE DOUBLE -EDGED SWORD

A CONQUERED LEGEND DIES , A CONQUERING LEGEND'S BORN

A CONTEST HAS BEEN WON , AND A CONTEST HAS BEEN LOST

BUT WITH VICTORY STILL MUST COME THE COST

CHORUS

4.AND SO MY SON , IF YOU WOULD LIFE'S WISDOM STRIVE TO GAIN

SIMPLY PUT OR EXPLAINED

WITH RUDYARD KIPLING'S LEARNED SAYING

“THAT VICTORY AND DEFEAT – IMPOSTERS JUST THE SAME
