 :-\ gosh , all these looksee's and no one knows???? ???

ok, here is what I can here with my old bad ears....:

Soon x 6 (or more x's)
Sing yourself on down the street
  "       "        right off your feet
   "      "   away (from ?) victory and from defeat
  "       "  with (?) drum


"        "    to overcome
 the thought that
someone else is lost and
someone else is (found?)

HELP!!!!!!!   :-*

As far as I can recall, after the "Soon"s;

Sing yourself on down the street
Sing yourself right off your feet
Sing yourself away from victory and from defeat
Sing yourself with fife and Drum
Sing yourself to Overcome
The thought that someone's lost
And someone else has won.

Hope that helps?

now...the only part I'm not understanding is"sing yourself AWAY from VICTORY and from defeat"

 ???

does this mean to not win or lose at the same time?  Does this have to do with fighting to fight to win at all cost, defeating the purpose of beign peaceful....peacefully winning an argument?

My interpretation is that it means moving away from conflict and competition, moving away from the NEED for a winner and a loser, but that's just me!

THANK U THANK U THANK U....I have been trying to find some form of the lyrics for the longest...All I remember is the "Soon...." from the chorus...This is close enough that way I heard in the inner circle...
I hope they release it to the public! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I thought instead of "Soon" it was "Soul"
