Hello Mr. Superhero.
You must be the most jealous person
with your hidden desire to be like us normal folks
but you have to wear a cape and mask.
You have to go out there and save the universe.
You must feel envious of people with one life
because you have a double life,
and all that you love,
you can not hold close,
you cannot love when your are a superhero.

It is like you are an addict,
Mr. Superhero
you need another does of lifesaving
to get back to that high,
making others feel safer, even happier.
You slowly begin to feel the affects of this drug.
Until you can't get enough,
You need to have more and more
until there is no more lives to save
and all the damsels in distress are long gone
The more you try to get back to the high,
the faster you fly,
the more you do,
the more your life turns to ruins.

Mr. Superhero
The double lives you try to hang onto
Is slowly becoming just one, your addict life,
the other one, well that will be long gone soon enough,
look at yourself Mr. Superhero,
look at you now.
All you have is your mask and your tights.
So go help someone,
go get back to that high you strive for.
Because at the end of the day,
Mr. Superhero
that is all you have.
