Pushed into the Sun

I saw my heroes. Their rise and their fall
Chained to the platform while heeding the call
Their heavenly plight was our fates intertwined
Their very existence was a life on the line
I thought they were different, ’til they fell one by one
These victims intrepid, we pushed in the sun
We pushed in the sun

And I wanted to be like them
I wanted to be the same

I watched my heroes being placed in the ground
There wasn’t a shake up, was barely a sound
Though the fanfare did resound each time they’d step in
To save us from the shit that we wallow in
We’re victims of habit plagued til the end
Wake to the alarm, time and again
Time and again

I wanted to be like them
I wanted to be the same
I might fly off and leave the pain
I just want to be like them
