HERO
Music by Jeremy Hoop & Rachel Koller
Lyrics by Jeremy Hoop
© Copyright 2015 Opus Meridian Records & Rachel Koller

see the face in the glimmer of the screen
soldier boy, missions to be won
vanquished villains bear familiar faces
He erases with his gun
between the joysticks and the chemical kicks
he finds the time to dream, and dream, his dream of a

hero who'll show him how to fly
and come to life in a comic world where only devils die
but he knows ain't no hero walkin' through that door
that shut for good the day he left momma lyin’ on the floor
never more to be a hero

see the girl livin' in the magazine
belle of the ball--party never ends
every airbrushed idol is her teacher
and at once her truest friend
if she wants to rate, lose the weight, it's her fate
to finally be adored, nevermore be ignored; she cries for a

hero who'll lie and says it's true
There is a magic chrysalis to make her someone new
she'd give it all to that hero who'd satisfy the need
but When he don't show, she's just might open up a vein and let it bleed
put the blame on the hero

near lost are the ones of yesteryear
locked up on bookshelves under dust
by men who hate the light of day
now hear the cry, "who can we trust"
time to reclaim our heroes
a father, a mother, a founder, preacher, teacher, soldier, savior
Will anyone be a

hero that doesn't need to fly
on field or stage or silverscreen where honor tends to die
where in the world is the hero; hope in the absurd
with open eyes and and steady knees and power in their word
who'll be a hero?

for the boys and the girls
for the boys and the girls
for the boys and the girls
