Heros have appeared
just to save you and me.
Made of steel and blood,
would you ever see Batman cry?
Does the Flash ever lose sleep at night,
recalling past events so long ago?
Will they ever give up and cry
or just move slowly on.
Heros are brave
in the face of death it's self.
No one to love
so that it would be easy upon them.
Would Superman ever bend
let his lust take over for just one night
in which he could have it all.
Would he even need to get drunk?
Could they ever allow anyone to get close
or are they doomed to wonder the land all alone?
Giving smiles to so many
when one has hardly graced their face.
Could Spiderman get a real job,
if he didn't have to rush off.
saving the world gives you no time for dates.
A man made of steel and little bugs
he could never have a life after that.
What can you do
when only the villains know all about you?
What if the world had no heros,
to save you and me?
Would we be able to hold our heads up high
or would we be here at all?
