about

This song is about trying to live up to the high standards you set for yourself. Being anyone’s hero to anyone is hard, its lonely, and there is no manual. Its a virtuous thing to try to hold oneself to a high standard, but it often results in you overreaching your limits, and plunging into despair. But everyone should still try to be a hero.

lyrics

I see many happy families tilling fertile soil
Heroes never stick together whether heavens hold

I did not know at once where we came, we came from
Ten-thousand miles ago where we once, we once were

I see many happy families tilling fertile soil
Heroes never stick together whether heavens hold

I did not know at once where we came, we came from
Ten-thousand miles ago where we once, we once were
But if you stop to look you will hear what I heard

Why did you fly your airplane underneath the sea?
You think I’d tell you how to breath, but its not natural
You are the one that everyone’s supposed to love,
But you are flying far above, not looking up
