Music rave: Triumph

Not a chance I can say it better than them; I will let their lyrics speak for themselves. 
I will say that the bands of the seventies and eighties had great names. Read these words and tell me that Triumph is not a fitting name for this band. Rock On!
Hold On, by Triumph
Music holds the secret
To know it can make you whole
It's not just a game of notes,
It's the sounds inside your soul
The magic of the melody
Runs through you like a stream
The notes they play flow through your head like a dream.
Like a dream

I sing this song for the common man
And for the people everywhere
I bring my song into the world
And I sing it everywhere
The simple truth lies waiting here
For everyone to share
So hold on, and I will take you there

The daily routing takes your soul
Lost without a trace
It holds you down and turns you 'round
And puts you in your place
Another day, another dollar. Another pretty face
Another chance to lose yourself in the endless race

Hold on. Hold on to your dreams
Hold on, even though it seems
Everyone around you has their little schemes
Listen to your heart, and hold on to your dreams

Can't you feel the magic? I can feel it everywhere
Can't you feel the music? There's something in the air
There's a celebration deep withing a song
Celebrate this feeling, you know it can't be wrong

Hold on. hold on to your dreams
Hold on, even though it seems
Everyone around you has their little schemes
Listen to your heart, and hold on to your dreams

Caught up in routine,you've got to break it
Time won’t wait for us, we’ve got to make it
Fate gives you the chance, you’ve got to take it
Take it!

Hold on. Hold on to your dreams
Hold on, even though it seems
Everyone around you has their little schemes
Listen to your heart, and hold on to your dreams

Just hold on, people. I wish I were the Messiah. (not really) 
I wish I could save your souls. (slackers, you can do it yourself) 
All I know is how to shine a Light on where I have been. (it only shines backward, I am walking in the dark, also) 
You can make it. (at least this far) 
I did. (so far)
Happy Valentine’ Day, people. I love you all.
