Superhero 04:55
I want to be your protector Defending you from every circumstance That may do you harm I want to be like fire Consuming all the terror in your world Their plans come unfurled Watching you from above Keeping you safe from All the things that haunt you I am ever vigilant Just and true I'll be a superhero for you I want to be your signal Announcing that salvation is at hand I'm on my way I want to be none other than The very man, you never see But is always by your side There is no evil that can take you away from me
Drone 04:00
There's a ghost in the mirror Oh god - could that be me? The stench of sweat, the smell of liquor and... a blankness where a memory ought to be I feel the weight of their eyes upon me The expectation growing still Will I ever live my life my way? Is this the end I feel? It's overtaking me It's now a part of me Cause my knife is as dull as my fantasies Cutting off all of my abnormalities Where do I find the strength to give a shit? After all you've made me...a god damn drone! You would have me do as you do Speak just like you, think just like you But there's one problem with your plan I have begun to understand That you're a kamikaze dive bomb Hell-bent on destruction A bold-faced liar You've mastered obstruction You shove the biggest piece of bullshit down our throats And wonder why we refuse to swallow I refuse to be...a god damn drone! After all you've failed to make me...a god damn drone!
