    Question Victory Line by Limited Warranty

    I finally purchased the CD edition of Limited Warranty's self-titled release from 1986. Ever since I first heard "Victory Line" on the radio and later on the vinyl LP, some of the words eluded me. I even tried some reading lips by watching the music video via VSPOT, but I am still stumped on a few of the words.
    I have posted below the lyrics to the best of my knowledge. Can anyone fill in the blank spaces? Also, if any of the other words I have post are incorrect, please feel free to fix that. Thanks.

    Victory Line
    Soldiers drop your toys
    Whatever be the sign
    Stand in line to face each other
    On a field thatís ________
    A lionís heart _______
    For every acre you recover
    We can survive it all
    With the promise that is given
    Wait for me
    ĎCause Iíll be coming home for you
    Stand, fall or die (this time)
    Wait for me
    ĎCause Iíll be coming home for you
    All is fine behind the victory line
    A distant drummer beats
    Heís called upon to guard his nation
    Flowers on the street
    Are wilted in the heat
    Memories of our civil nature
    Did we forget it all
    Silent echos of the _______
    Wait for me
    ĎCause Iíll be coming home for you
    Stand, fall or die (this time)
    Wait for me
    ĎCause Iíll be coming home for you
    All is fine behind the victory line

    Re: Victory Line by Limited Warranty

    I am getting ready to purchase this 45. I cannot find the mp3 anywhere, so vinyl is the final alternative. I've never heard this song, but I am intrigued by it because it spent several weeks hovering around the lower half of the U.S. Hot 100 Billboard chart. Seems like one of those songs that's good but never caught on at top 40 radio. I'll give it a listen soon and try to help with the lyrics. Thanks for posting...

    Re: Victory Line by Limited Warranty

    Dave- I recently got the CD and I must say I am stumped. It almost sounds like they're saying "On A Field That's Burnt". But I'm not positive. The last line almost sounds like "pride", but they don't say it very well and it sounds like "pry" or "pyre". Tried to find the lyrics online and came up empty. Sorry to disappoint- anyone else have any answers?
