    Lyrics

    Across the flatlands we came out of nowhere special
    Like a peasant revolution with makeshift weapons in our hands
    We crashed the gates so hard, we'd never heard that kind of sound before
    And braced ourselves for victory and the spoils of the land
    Defenses melt away before our frozen blank surprise
    From the palace now we stare to a million waiting eyes

    I've got my trophies on the wall, heads I've hunted down the hall
    And I guard my winnings well, carry them with me when I fall
    Now the daylight hours pass like the people, I have lost
    In the triumph of the hour, in the bloody cause, lust, lust for power

    Like a vision she dances through the shafts of light
    Everything I've ever dreamed about focused true and bright
    Fortune opens up the ground, blackens out the sky
    I kissed her once, I kissed her twice but I couldn't remember why
    When I was young they taught me well to always play to win
    But they never said what happens when you've won the bloody game

    I've got my trophies on the wall, heads I've hunted down the hall
    And I guard my winnings well, carry them with me when I fall
    Now the daylight hours pass like the people, I have lost
    In the triumph of the hour, in the bloody cause, lust, lust for power, yeah

    And all desire is satisfied but still the hunt goes on
    It's funny how this feeling stays with all the reasons gone

    Ohh, we've seen them fat and bloated those who once could hold a flame
    I've run for home and words gone by but nothing seems the same
    I can watch myself in secrecy, one side of this glass
    From the other my reflection and I don't know which is worse
    Streets are lined with glittering stores and a million fatted calves
    I can catch myself sometimes these days and all I do is laugh
    Laugh, laugh, come on

    I've got my trophies on the wall, heads I've hunted down the hall
    And I guard my winnings well, carry them with me when I fall
    Now the daylight hours pass like the people, I have lost
    In the triumph of the hour, in the bloody cause, lust, lust for power

    And I guard my winnings well, carry them with me when I fall
