lyrics

Where are the hero’s?

Where are the hero’s 
that will save our lives?
To do the right thing 
and turn down bribes
To see the future 
and help us all survive
To help us all prepare
For when it all arrives
Where are the hero’s?
Where are they now?
Where are the hero’s?
They’ve left us somehow
Take and take and place the blame
Change the rules and cheat the game
Just a snake all out for gain
Leave us on the ball and chain
Break, forsake an endless rape
All the world is yours to take
Rip and tear, while your there
Strip it bare, smile and glare

Blame the stars and athletes
Everyone that’s on the streets
Blame the red, blame the blue
Everyone except for you
Behind the doors, making deals
Everyone is out to steal
Deals that make you rich as fuck
All of us are out of luck

Pollute the planet, place your bet
Load the cannon at the threat
The population target set
Confrontation has been met
Fire when you feel it’s right
Entire neighborhoods alight
Rain the bullets from the sky
Everyone is left to die

Submission is the only goal
Ignition by remote control
Attrition grinding down your soul
Suspicion always on patrol
Munitions always on display
Conditions limiting the way
Ambitions leave us in dismay
Violence the only way
Where are the hero’s 
that will save our lives?
To do the right thing 
and turn down bribes
To see the future 
and help us all survive
Where are the hero’s?
Where are they now?
Where are the hero’s?
Where are they now?
Where are the hero’s?
Where are they now?
Where are the hero’s?
Where are the hero’s?
