"Dead Hero"

i had an idol once who couldn't help but shine
one of the quiet ones, those better left behind

i may be cynical, yeah?
but it's better than being ignorant
i was entertained once and it felt like a kick in the head

but all my idols tend to kill themselves
and my heroes tend to die young
and they leave us wanting more

well he impressed me so much
he never made much sense
i prayed to see him once
not just on a tv set

but all my idols tend to kill themselves
and my heroes tend to die young
they say kids don't ya do what i have done
then they leave us wanting more
please just one more

and here i am, ready to sell my soul
and here i am, tired of being stoic
when all i wanted was one more

this idol fell to pieces
because he hid behind his shadow
like a dumbass luna moth that soars toward the sun

but all my idols tend to kill themselves
and my heroes tend to die young
they say kids don't ya do what i have done
then they make it look like fun
then they leave us wanting more
one more goddamn song

"I may be cynical, but it's better than being ignorant" - Those are some wise words.

i think this is purely awesome and i really agree with ectsoman

...and it felt like a kick in the head

Make me think of Fallout:NV

Gunshy responds:
