Superheros with secret identities are complicated individuals. You would think their lives would be fabulous because they have all these special abilities and can save people! All that IS great! They do those things because they are wonderful and honorable people (mostly) and want to help! The hero's secret identity varies in type. You have the smooth and sophisticated Bruce Wayne - the damaged child - as our Batman. The bumbly newsreporters and photographers in Clark Kent and Peter Parker as Superman and Spiderman. It takes all types. I admire both sides of the individual. You can't have the Clark Kent without the Superman..The Bruce Wayne without the Batman... and vice versa. But like us mere human/normal folks these ladies and gentlemen have feelings too. Often feelings of frustration and angst. They can't just live a normal life like us, they have too many demands as a hero. Doesn't mean they don't try though!! Thus creating all these feelings I try to cover in this mix!
Breakdown - Jack Johnson
All the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
I just roll through town
And though my windows got a view
The frame I'm looking through
Seems to have no concern for now
So for now
I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I'm Not Your Hero - Tegan and Sara
Sometimes it feels like they wanna remind me
Send all those villains after me
I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same
Nobody's Hero - Black Veil Brides
Save me from the darkest places
Save me from myself
I'm a loaded gun
An only son
But I'm nobody's hero
I've come undone
I'm on the run
Yeah, I'm nobody's hero
To heal, your scars
I will give you everything I can
This war, of hearts
We will rise again and take a stand
Arlandria - Foo Fighters
I wanna see if you can shake.
I want to keep all I can take,
I feel much better now.
Use me up, spit me out,
Let me be your hand-me-down.
Fame, fame, go away, come again some other day.
You used to say I couldn't save you enough,
So I've been saving it up, I started saving it up.
And when you said I couldn't give you enough,
I started giving you up, I started giving you up.
Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down
You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head,
If not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back on solid ground
If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Hero - Skillet
I am just a man
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate
It's just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero (save me now)
I need a hero to save my life
A hero'll save me (just in time)
Forfeit - Chevelle
Will not be shaken,
And jump into this,
And be persuasive, just carry on.
Make my mind up, to go though this,
Or be firm and sit in silence.
'Cause I want to fight,
I want to fight,
I want to prove I'm right.
Locking Up the Sun - Poets of the Fall
Is there a hero somewhere, someone who appears and saves the day
Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time
Is there a hero somewhere, someone who will never walk away
Who doesn't turn a blind eye to a crime
They're locking up the sun, they have their chosen one,
you know this time they'll make him play along
They're taking to the arms, the fathers and their sons,
there's nowhere left to run and hide
