My Heroes

from Hidden Vagenda by Kimya Dawson

lyrics

The word of the day's I don't know what to say
And the man in the mirror is wasting away
No songs to sing, no games to play
Just a big old hole in my heart
My heroes are falling apart

Now michael and paul they are chained to the wall
Since I was a kid I loved them best of all
But if they are guilty off with their balls
My heroes are falling, my heroes are falling down

And the old are supposed to protect the young
Not endanger or exploit them
This is something I can't stress enough
Having been fucked is no excuse for being fucked up
Having been fucked is no excuse for being fucked up

And my mom says to treat as you wish you were treated
And I know that she's sorry for the wrongs she repeated
And never forget how you felt as a kid
Look little you in the eye, each time you encounter a child

And the word of the day is you are a disgrace
And the man in the mirror only changed his face
No songs to sing, no games to play
Just a big old hole in my heart
My heroes are falling, my heroes are falling apart
My heroes are falling, my heroes are falling apart
My heroes are falling, my heroes are falling apart
