Why do we worship superheroes so much? It's reasonable to hope someone cares about us. Is it because all the good men have gone? They were gentle and strong When they spoke, we felt hope. Their truth could move millions, Ignite a moment of brilliance. Unite every color and creed and ignorance That history itself couldn't bury resilience
But the moment is lost, A match struck in a wave, a nation of hate, and the youth in a daze, And all I can think is we made it this way We stopped exposing our kids to the truth of the matter and so they got lost in a culture that says they don't matter.
When a fight for a vote became a fight for a like, We can't act surprised when kids fight for a fight Entire religions preach having a purpose And still replaced values with things that are worthless. A society so numb to the progress they've won Find a perverse pleasure to see it undone.
When a company is allowed to sell plots of land on the moon, When a leader of freedom commits treason against truth, Is a sure sign that we the people, have given up, too. The allowance of absurdity into our lives Little by little, it rots from inside Until we cannot admit that we have allowed this. Now the roaring crescendo of human triumph is silent. Is it better to admit that we're dying contrived? Or is it easier to shut up and eat their lies?
