lyrics

THE ROAD TO VICTORY
Katie Dowell / Rebekah Layton / A.J. Merrifield / Gary Nicholson

On the long road to victory
You never know what you're gonna see
You just do what you know you gotta do
Whatever it takes whatever gets you through
There's s fist and a saber still haunting me
On the long road to victory

Rules of engagement Laws of war
You give it all you got and wonder what for
When was the last time leaders put it on the line
How can you say don't fire when you never leave the wire

On the long road to victory
You never know what you're gonna see
You just do what you know you gotta do
Whatever it takes whatever gets you through
There's fist and saber still haunting me
On the long road to victory

We don't néed to brag don't need to wave the flag
Still gonna feel the pain and never be the same
Seems so pointless we keep losing kids
We keep wondering how we're gonna get out of this

Tears drops on the horizon
My heart cries for home
Every day i'm more alone
But i've got to soldier on

On the long road to victory
You never know what you're gonna see
Here's a fist and a saber still haunting me
On the long road to victory
