The Sacrifice of Victor

The Sacrifice of Victor

By Prince
Metro Lyrics
April 26, 2016

What is sacrifice?
We, we, we, we sacrifice

N P G in mass attack, Sonny, please
We sacrifice

Church if you will, please turn to the book of Victor
We sacrifice

We like to start at the top if you don't mind
We sacrifice

Don't say it, preacher

I was born on a blood stained table
Cord wrapped around my neck

Epileptic 'til the age of seven
I was sure Heaven marked the deck

We sacrifice

I know, joy lives 'round the corner
Joy for sale down on the corner

We sacrifice

One day I'll visit her, I'm gonna
Out on my block, I'm just a loner

We sacrifice

When she tell me everything
Tell me

That's when the angels sing
Sacrifice

That's when the victory is sho 'nuff
Sho 'nuff down with the sacrifice

We sacrifice

Help me

Don't say it, preacher

Mama held up her baby for protection
From a man with a strap in his hand

Ask the Victor 'bout pain and rejection
You think he don't, when he do understand

We sacrifice

I know, Joy lives 'round the corner
Joy for sale down on the corner

We sacrifice

One day I'll visit her, I'm gonna
Out on my block, I'm just a loner

We sacrifice

When she tell me everything
Tell me

That's when the angels sing
Sacrifice

That's when the victory is sho 'nuff
Sho 'nuff down with the sacrifice

We sacrifice

Help me

S A C R I F I C E

We, we, we sacrifice

Don't say it, preacher

We, we, we sacrifice

Sacrifice, if you turn the page

Don't say it, preacher

1967, in a bus marked, 'Public School'
Rode me and a group of unsuspecting political tools

Our parents wondered what
It was like to have another color near

So they put their babies together to eliminate the fear

We sacrifice

Yes we did fighting one another

Don't say it, preacher

All because of color

We sacrifice

The angel of hate
She taught me how to kick her

If she called me anything but Victor
You mean like nigger?

We sacrifice

If the only thing that tells me is, father time
Then sacrifice is the mutha sublime, we love it

Listen mutha, we sacrifice

Don't, don't, don't say it preacher

We sacrifice

Well, well, well, well,
What is sacrifice?

Hold yo' text, deacon

Never understood my old friends laughing
They got high when everything else got wrong

Pass the booze up here

Dr. King was killed and the streets they started burning
When the smoke was cleared their high was gone

Education got important so important to Victor
A little more important than ripple and weed

Bernadette's a lady and she told me
What she say?

"Whatever you do son
A little discipline is what you need
Is what u need, you need to sacrifice"

We sacrifice

I know, joy lives 'round the corner
Joy for sale down on the corner

We sacrifice

One day I'll visit her, I'm gonna
Out on my block, I'm just a loner

We sacrifice

When she tell me everything
Tell me

That's when the angels sing
Sacrifice

That's when the victory is sho 'nuff
Sho 'nuff down with the sacrifice

We sacrifice

What is sacrifice?

We sacrifice

S A C R I F I C E

We sacrifice

Hey Wendy, how come we

We sacrifice

'Scuse me y'all

We sacrifice

We don't don't mean to take up yo' time

Joy around the corner

But we got something heavy on our minds

We sacrifice

Yes, we do

We sacrifice

Sometimes, you gotta leave the one you love

We sacrifice

Somebody, anybody, everybody wave your hand

We sacrifice

Around the corner, there's another sacrifice

Joy around the corner

But you got to do the best you can, y'all

Joy around the corner

Say you got to go through it
Go through it

Joy around the corner

You got to go through it all
Go through it all

Joy around the corner

Sell it, don't tell it, don't tell me
High glory, yeah

Joy around the corner

Lord, I might get tired
But I, I've got to keep on

We sacrifice

Keep on walking down this road
Joy around the corner

We sacrifice

When I reach my destination
My name will be, Victor

We sacrifice

Amen
