superhero lyrics – flobots

“superhero”

we believed in love, when love wasn’t an option
she wanted to give birth, i wanted adoption
after days and days of conversation, we decided to go with fertilization
then came baby showers and lamaze cl*sses, 2am phone calls, one minute contractions
but then they wisked me away like brigadoon, no domestic partners in the delivery room

but if i was a superhero i would break free
wouldn’t need anyone to come and save me
and you couldn’t make me, feel like i’m crazy
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

and if i was a superhero i would break free
and i wouldn’t be in prison wherever you take me
i would change everyone that’s trying to change me
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

life in an occupied land is hard, we pushed harder
soon to be a mom, him to be a father
boys with guns at the checkpoint and brothel
wouldn’t let me p*ss when i said i need a doctor
i don’t know the source of the p*ssport errors
or how four hours produced a miscarriage
but when it comes to populations too disparaged
gaza’s on the list, right below gay marriage

but if i was a superhero i would break free
wouldn’t need anyone to come and save me
and you couldn’t make me, feel like i’m crazy
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

and if i was a superhero i would break free
and i wouldn’t be in prison wherever you take me
i would change everyone who’s trying to change me
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

there’s something on my heart, there’s someone on my mind
i never would have thought that i could be so angry,
but please give me the patience, please give me the patience

there’s something on my heart, there’s someone on my mind
i never would have thought that i could be so angry,
but please give me the patience, please give me the patience

but if i was a superhero i would break free
wouldn’t need anyone to come and save me
and you couldn’t make me, feel like i’m crazy
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

yeah if i was a superhero i would break free
and i wouldn’t be in prison wherever you take me
i would change everyone who’s trying to change me
i would see my baby, i would see my baby

yeah if i was a superhero i would break free
and i wouldn’t be in prison wherever you take me
i would change everyone who’s trying to change me
i would see my baby, i would see my baby
