ARZ: To the Better Man lyrics

He’s the guy that never got picked

Always on the losing team

Look in your high school year book

Good luck finding a picture of him with me

 

He was a champion

A man of means, a man of steel

He was our guardian

He made it safe for me and you.

 

Young toughs beat him up back then

He didn’t have the strength to meet them head on

Kids in the hallways mocked his stride

He hoped his life wouldn’t last long

 

He was a champion

A man of means, a man of steel

He was our guardian

He made it safe for me and you

 

Life is different now

Drink a toast with me, give a nod to the better man

Life is different now

Stand aside and bow in shame to the better man

 

That last day he took my hand and said to me,

“Friend, I must be moving on”

A shadow dark and deep crossed his face

A wistful smile, he said, “so long”

 

He was a champion

A man of means, a man of steel.

He was our guardian

He made it safe for me and you

 

Life is different now

Drink a toast with me, give a nod to the better man

Life is different now

Stand aside and bow in shame to the better man

 

He was a champion

A man of means, a man of steel.

He was our guardian

He made it safe..

..for me and you
