about

Recorded at Bob Frisbee's Auckland studio as part of the "Victory Blues" EP. Art is the harshest mistress.

lyrics

Victory

Art is the harshest mistress
Art is a cry of distress
wonderfully expressed
Who needs the rest?
A mirror crossing a busy road
with a headful of ideas
He pioneers

She is a golden omen
You could not find a woman
who's more in tune
with the Moon
Underneath her laughing eyes
let a hundred flowers bloom
In her room

Her kisses taste like Victory
Her kisses taste like Victory
Her kisses taste like Victory
over Death
