Victory

Victory

The song Victory is a (genius) mashup of a whole host of Megadeth song titles told as a series of events from ‘Killing Is My Business…’ through to ‘Lucretia’. It’s essentially a celebration of the band’s ‘victory’ as a unit up to that point & their success in recording great tracks.

Victory is the closing track on Megadeth’s 6th studio album Youthanasia.

Victory Lyrics

Now, one day I started telling everyone
That “Killing Is My Business…”
And I was hung like a martyr
For “Looking Down the Cross”
My “Skull Beneath The Skin”
Prophesied “Last Rites/Loved To Death” my friends
Then I started seeing “Bad Omens” in my head
“Good Mourning/Black friday” will I “Wake up Dead”?
If “I Aint Superstitious” then this won’t mean a thing
But some crazy shit has happened since “The Conjuring”

Not even close to overdose

Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
A knife right through my heart, I am a Victory

Came “Anarchy” to “Set The World Afire”
Pain of “Hook In Mouth”, “In My Darkest Hour”
Corruption of the world “Peace Sells” but nobody’s buying
Ignorant religion “Holy Wars” and the dying
“Tornado” nearly got me by the “Skin of My Teeth”
“This Was My Life”, “Foreclosure of My Dreams”
May the past “Rust in Peace” in “Hangar 18”
And “Countdown to Extinction” just be a bad dream
“Lucretia” said

Not even close to overdose

Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
A knife right through my heart, I am a Victory

Solo – Mustaine
Solo – Friedman
Solo – Mustaine
Solo – Friedman

Not even close to overdose

Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
A knife right through my heart, I am a Victory
