The Triumph is the opening of Volume 5 of theongoing American web cartoon series RWBY. The song comes from the perspective of Team RWBY and the remaining members of Team JNPR as they decide that no matter what the odds are of defeating Salem the will succeed in doing so at whatever cost.

The song was performed by Casey Lee Williams, the singer of most of the songs in RWBY, and the singing voice for one of the series' protagonists, Weiss Schnee. The song was written by her father and series composer Jeff Williams.

Back to the fairytale
Back to the show
Backed to the wall
And there's nowhere to go
Hopeless and desperate
All paths adverse
Things looking bleak
And they're bound to get worse

Helpless and doomed
And there's no way to win
Goals unachievable
Faith running thin
Lost and forlorn
Impossible odds
That's when you'll learn
You've been messing with gods

Send in your Grimm
Tear off my limb
Strike me with bolts of lightning
I won't die
The battle seems unwinnable
But all we need's a miracle
We're going up
We'll never be denied

Can't wish away the dismal days
Can't bring back what is gone
Won't waste more tears on yesteryears
Instead, we'll carry on
We'll win we're sure we will endure
And though our goal is far
We'll be the ones to touch the sun
The triumph will be ours

Nowhere to run now
No time to grieve
No other choices
It's die or believe
Not backing down
We're standing at last
Cuz beat and dejected
Are things of the past

This is the moment
This is the day
This is the place
And we came here to slay
Yeah I'm a girl
But I'm also a gun
Fast and I'm deadly
You'll never outrun

Strike down my friends
I'll never bend
Right to the end, I'm fighting
Glorified
And though it's unpredictable
We're heading for the pinnacle
We'll never stop
We're heading towards the sky

Can't wish away the dismal days
Can't bring back what is gone
Won't waste more tears on yesteryears
Instead, we'll carry on
We'll win we're sure we will endure
And though our goal is far
We'll be the ones to touch the sun
The triumph will be ours

It's not destiny
It would be a
Grave mistake to think so
Every choice is our and ours alone
This hasn't all been mapped by fate
This is the future we create
And we're powered by
Every tear that's dried

Can't wish away the dismal days
Can't bring back what is gone
Won't waste more tears on yesteryears
Instead, we'll carry on
We'll win we're sure we will endure
And though our goal is far
We'll be the ones to touch the sun
The triumph will be ours

The triumph will be ours
