ARZ: Birth of a Hero lyrics

I look out on the school yard, and remember that day

It happened so long ago, but it changed me in every way

I want to go back in time, and undo what I did

This incident was based on a lie, and it cost me but big

 

He was taller than us, a strapping boy, and as mean as they come

He terrorized the courtyard and picked the kids apart one by one

One day I saw his shadow loom, a towering nemesis

I looked up at him, and he at me, and he said, “taste my fist”

 

What was I to do?

What should I have said?

I was taught to get along

To pass the buck instead

 

As I look in the mirror, I see a middle-aged man who’s given up

Indoctrinated, socialized, civilized, I’ve learned to just suck up

Something’s growing, something big, a feeling I can’t control

Watch out world ol’Jimbo here ain’t gonna take this any more

 

What was I to do?

What should I have said?

I was taught to get along

I should’ve kicked his ass instead

 

I am back, I am just

I am right, I am a hero

I defend those who cannot fight back

I am their hero

 

Welcome to the office world, filled with petty tyrants and rules

Push a paper and a pen, to the big “man” we’re just fools

One day I saw his shadow loom, a towering nemesis

I looked up at him, and he at me, I said “taste my fist”

 

What was I to do?

What should I have said?

I was taught to get along

So I kicked his ass instead

 

I am back, I am just

I am right, I am a hero

I defend those who cannot fight back

I am their hero

 

I take on the bad guys and kick them to hell

I stand by my word

Defend my cause, join me now rise up

Embrace the absurd

 

I fly on, I fly on

 

I am back, I am just

I am right, I am a hero

I defend those who cannot fight back

I am their hero

 

I take on the bad guys and kick them to hell

I stand by my word

Defend my cause, join me now rise up

Embrace the absurd

 

I fly on, I fly on…
