hero lyrics – superchick

no one sits with him, he doesn’t fit in
but we feel like we do when we make fun of him
cause you want to belong, do you go along?
cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong
it’s not like you hate him or want him to die
but maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
and a kindness from you might have saved his life

[tag:]
heroes are made when you make a choice

[chorus:]
you could be a hero – heroes do what’s right
you could be a hero – you might save a life
you could be a hero- you could join the fight
for what’s right, for what’s right, for what’s right

no one talks to her, she feels so alone
she’s in too much pain to survive on her own
the hurt she can’t handle overflows to a knife
she writes on her arm and wants to give up her life
each day she goes on is a day that she’s brave
fighting the lie that giving up is the way
each moment of courage her on life she saves
when she throws the pills out a hero is made
heroes are made when you make a choice

[tag]

[chorus]

no one talks to him about how he lives
he thinks that the choices he makes are just his
doesn’t know he’s the leader with the way he behaves
and others will follow the choices he’s made
he lives on the edge, he’s old enough to decide
his brother who wants to be him is just nine
he can do what he wants because it’s his right
the choices he makes change a nine-year-old’s life

[tag]

[chorus]

[rap]
little mikey d. was the one in cl*ss who everyday got brutally har*ssed
this went on for years until he decided that never again would he shed another tear
so he walked through the door, grabbed a four-four out of his father’s dresser drawer
and said i can’t take life no more
and like that life can be lost
but this ain’t even about that
all of us just sat back and watched it happen
thinkin’ it’s not my responsibility to solve a problem that isn’t even about me
this is our problem
this is just one of the daily scenarios which we choose to close our eyes
instead of doing the right thing
if we make a choice and be the voice for those who won’t speak up for themselves
how many lives would be saved, changed, and rearranged
now it’s our time to pick a side
so don’t keep walkin’ by
not wantin’ to intervene
’cause you wanna exist and never be seen
so let’s wake up and change the world
our time is now

[chorus:]
you could be a hero (our time is now)
heroes do what’s right
you could be a hero (our time is now)
you might save a life
you could be a hero, you could join the fight (our time is now)
for what’s right, for what’s right
