about

Victory Road's self-titled not-debut is an EP of explosive pop punk chiptune anthems made with a game boy. It's all about rocking the fuck out and pretending you're a dumb teenager again.

Bonus content includes LSDJ .sav files containing all 5 songs on this EP, the best tracks from the first EP, the only surviving track from the second EP, and some cool unreleased/unfinished stuff and live mode jams. Fun and excitement!

Track Name: Make the World Remember
We're gonna hit the town tonight
We're high on life and crazy vibes
And we ain't ever coming down
We live for love and love for life
No regrets and no goodbyes
We take forever in our stride

Let's rock the world together
This night won't last forever
Let's party while we're young and seize the day

We're gonna break it down tonight
We're off the rails and out of sight
And time will never pass us by
We live to see a better day
No regrets and no delays
no matter what the people say

Let's rock the world together
This night won't last forever
Let's party while we're young and seize the day
Let's make the world remember
Tonight we live forever
Let's party while we're young and seize the day
Track Name: White Dwarf
Deceived over ages
By wise men and sages
Your heart is set on the lights
And who knew your fortune
Would come back to haunt you
Your lucky star explodes tonight

Wasted time and wasted years
Bated breath for needless fears
Aspirations based on lies
The morning paper never got it right

Denying the future
To make sure it suits ya
But nothing's ever in plain sight
And who knew confusion
Would be your solution
Your lucky star explodes tonight

Wasted time and wasted years
Bated breath for needless fears
Aspirations based on lies
The morning paper never got it right
Track Name: Summer Goes On
Summer comes and summer goes
Summer love is all I've known
But everything comes back to you
All the years you've been around
They kept me safe, they kept me sound
But now you're nowhere to be found

Cause now you've gone a thousand miles away
And summer followed you home

And oh, I will run, I will fly
I will carry you away
To the sea, to the sky
We will find ourselves
And oh, I will run, I will fly
I will carry you home
We will not give up on love
We will not give up

Summer's come and gone so fast
Summer never seems to last
But everything comes back to you
Cross my heart, we'll be alright
I'll chase the sunrise through the night
Because I need you to survive


Cause now you've gone a thousand miles away
And summer followed you home

And oh, I will run, I will fly
I will carry you away
To the sea, to the sky
We will find ourselves
And oh, I will run, I will fly
I will carry you home
We will not give up on love
We will not give up on love

We won't give up on summer
One day we'll find each other
Track Name: Takes a Sudden Turn
There's a permanent thought in the back of my head
That makes me believe that I ought to be dead
But I'll start as I mean to go on
And this permanent thought in the back of my brain
That makes me believe that I'm going insane
Has been going on for to long

And how can I believe in you
When I can not believe in myself
And how can I believe in the future
When the future looks like this
When the future looks like-

[We will stand up]
[We will fight this]
[We will carry on]

So how can I believe in the future
When the future looks like shit
Track Name: Cherish Every Moment
Today's your day, tonight's your night
And even if you don't know why
Don't let another moment pass you by
And even if it doesn't last
Tomorrow always comes to pass
And every second is a second chance

So don't wait, it's too late to make up your mind
Believe me, it's easy to say that you're fine
But I know and you know that nothing's gonna change

So when you want to stay in bed
Or when you wish that you were dead
Remember that the future's up ahead
And even if today sucks ass
Tomorrow always comes to pass
And every second is a second chance

So don't wait, it's too late to make up your mind
Believe me, it's easy to say that you're fine
But I know and you know that nothing's gonna change
So don't wait, it's too late, you'll be left behind
Believe me, it's easy to run out of time
But even so another day will come

Another day will come, another day
Another day will come
