lyrics

You want it bad, a Superman
To take up the task at hand and bleed for you

You smoking gun, you riot of one
Put down the muscle and come up a fighter

Lions rage
They rattle their cage like they do

Like the fools parading they’re waiting in vain
For superman, for superman, for superman for superman

The killers they come but you ride on
Not looking back
But clouds of woe ride your head
From smoking their jive

Open wide
Go packing a sidearm of truth

Cause the birds of the air ain’t seen hide nor hair
Of superman, of superman, of superman of superman

It ain’t a crime to be hated
Or in the clouds of mourning

Broken babies see their diamonds
In your pocket there
In the pure land
When you go to hell
They will shine as well

You are superman, you are superman, you are superman, you are superman
