The Hero Song
psychofemale

My band's latest song, here are the lyrics to it.

A melody from a hero
 1
Is all that this town needs
 2
To stop all the villains
 3
and bring them to their knees
 4
 
 
A melody from a hero
 5
Could change the scene indeed
 6
Make it seem to matter
 7
A hero's what we need
 8
 
 
We are the heroes
 9
Sent to save the day
 10
From all the things we know
 11
and things so vague
 12
We are the heroes
 13
No blood on our hands
 14
Sent to save the day
 15
Our call to man
 16
 
 
We'll shred it in their faces
 17
Scream it in their ears
 18
Show them what we're made of
 19
From the power we reveal
 20
 
 
A melody from a hero
 21
A message to display
 22
The view will change forever
 23
and never be the same
 24
 
 
We are the heroes
 25
Sent to save the day
 26
From all the things we know
 27
and things so vague
 28
We are the heroes
 29
No blood on our hands
 30
Sent to save the day
 31
Our call to man
 32
 
 
We are are your heroes
 33
Sent to save the day
 34
We are your heroes
 35
We'll never go away
 36
 
 
We are the heroes
 37
Sent to save the day
 38
From all the things we know
 39
and things so vague
 40
We are the heroes
 41
No blood on our hands
 42
Sent to save the day
 43
Our call to man

a lyric is only worth the music carrying it. sometimes, a poet will write a 'lyric', but it's like the word 'fantasy' in classical music: it's not a sonata.

the music for this is our choice, and it's sort of like british-cowboy-pirate band music, with a marching beat to show that you don't care for pop-music glamour: the costumes you're wearing say it all.

if you want this to be an important statement on the psychology of identity, then it needs to be a poem: it needs to show you giving up ego to invent an ego you can work with. that's 'hero'.

The song's about being a hero to someone who hears your song, and that one song getting them through a hard moment in their lives. I want to be a hero someone who hears my song and it helps them through something. It may give off another statement to you, so I see what you mean as well
