“Holding Out For A Hero”
10:30 PM 4/6/2011

There’s a wry smile
A flash of teeth
Breath holding for
The red streak
Don a mask and
Leap a building
Show the world what
You’ve been meaning

You’ve got wings on
Your heart-strings
They raise you up
With heavy beats
Your heart shudders
Under a big load
We don’t deserve
You rush to battle

We wait on the side
And we cheer for
Your eventual victory
We know you’ll win
‘Cause there’s no
Other outcome we
Can live with
It’s our only game

You see the sign
And you rush to save
You decline a reward
We see the sun rise
On another day
There’s a hero’s feast
But you don’t join it
You’ve moved on now
