    Favorite triumphant lyrics

    Lyrics to songs that make you feel like you can do anything and really energize you.

    My main two are from Isis;

    "So Did We" -


    Our skin worn thin
    Our bones exposed
    Life reduced to ticks

    From forest caves and azure skies
    We crashed upon this earth
    The years, they passed, and so did we
    Yet, resistance would be formed.

    >>

    "20 Minutes/40 Years" -

    Tendrils extend from the cloudy black mass
    They slither and slide through the ones and zeroes
    Prophecy of collapse unfolds
    Last grains of sand spiral down the hole

    Chance has graced me with a gift
    Grasp at gold before dark descends
    Sun beats down and panic reigns
    In this time of ending

    Eyes shut, feet bare
    For this journey, I'm unprepared
    I walk on
    Sight renewed
    Seek new life
    I seek new life
    Walk.
    On.

    Seeking her, the one I wish to see
    She wanders the outerlands
    From the grasp of wolves
    I will pluck her

    Twin arteries flow with the pulse
    Of one mighty heart.

    Man my wife and i got into a TERRIBLE car accident 3 years ago or so. We SHOULD have died. I flipped the car five times, and although i have chronic back problems, we walked away from it. That weekend, we listened to Lateralus on repeat and that record took on new meaning for me. So i have several from that album. MOST of the whole goddamn album is triumphant in my opinion.

    Parabola

    "this body holding me...feeling eternal, all this pain is an illusion...Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing."

    Lateralus

    "reaching out to embrace the random, reaching out to embrace whatever may come...spiral out, keep going."

    Also

    Rush

    One Little Victory-i'm just gonna copy/paste this one cause the whole damned song is inspiring as fuck

    A certain measure of innocence /Willing to appear naive
    A certain degree of imagination/A measure of make-believe

    A certain degree of surrender/To the forces of light and heat
    A shot of satisfaction/In a willingness to risk defeat

    Celebrate the moment/As it turns into one more
    Another chance at victory/Another chance to score

    The measure of the moment/Is a difference of degrees
    Just one little victory/A spirit breaking free

    A certain measure of righteousness/A certain amount of force
    A certain degree of determination/Daring on a different course

    A certain amount of resistance/To the forces of the light and love
    A certain measure of tolerance/A willingness to rise above

    One little victory
    The greatest act can be



    This is a good thread @Ryan , and several more come to mind, but i'm not able to post them all right now.

    Danzig - Left Hand Rise Above

    L.H.P.
    Is the road I'm on
    If you'd like
    You can come along
    Just make sure
    That it's what you want
    And your will
    Is strong


    The brightest star
    You see
    Must always
    Be thee
    The greatest thing
    You know
    Comes not from above
    But below


    Left hand rise above


    Silver flame
    At my beck and call
    Light the night
    Of this phantom world
    Secret things
    That I come upon
    And the veil is gone


    The brightest star
    You see
    Must always
    Be thee

    The greatest thing
    To be
    Is to be strong
    And free



    Left hand rise above

    Pantera- A New Level

    Now a new look in my eyes my spirits rise
    forget the past/present tense works and lasts

    Got shit on/pissed on/spit on/ stepped on/ fucked with/ pointed at by lesser men

    NEW LIFE...in place of OLD LIFE

    UNSCARRED BY TRIALS!

    a new level...of consciousness...and power!


    See, that shit gets me so fired up to this day that i had to use exclamation points, which is a trip because i got that album in like the 6th or 7th grade.
