Fallen Heroes






Fallen Heroes


How many fallen heroes, 
Pave up the streets of life; 
Curb their ambitions; 
For boldness comes with strife; 
And when they waste and lie there; 
To glare up at the sun; 
How we awe at what our heroes; 
Have suddenly become; 
Oh how they had potential; 
And all their awesome plans; 
The glory was our witness, 
But now their humble men; 
See when your grown it's then you see; 
How people worship sympathy; 
And when their down the world must know; 
How things in life they sure must go; 
You're not tearful when youre careful; 
Or damaged when your safe; 
Don't look for all your entrances; 
Look for your fire escape; 
When some fool passes; 
Nods at you; 
As you do as they are; 
They are as you do; 
Remember where your seatin; 
That mushrooms ripe for eating; 
The falling may be fallen; 
But they are not paralyzed; 
They may have lost their minds; 
But could never loose their sight; 
How the mighty when they crumble; 
Will thud and clap but then; 
Will hawl upon their boot straps; 
To climb mountains all over again; 
So when I'm down and toast my plans; 
I'm telling you just who I am; 
This mind is not for letting; 
Neither heroes for forgetting;
