"Spy Hunter" as written by and Andrew Schwab Alexander Albert....
One last disguise

Pawns standing in awe of the game
Of the stage
You've worked so hard at building an empire
Of secret rooms to display yourself
And add to your wealth
The sting of.
Oh, it stings
When I saw it all come crashing
I witnessed the sound of a million voices
Screaming for a public hanging

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

When the world is a target for humanity's market
And all of it's sold for a dime
I've seen the towers of gods
And the power of men
In disguises of the worst kind
I am the words on the page
I am the death among life today
I am the voice of one among the silent
Who's tired of burning among the flames

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

I do not need anymore truthless heroes
I do not need anymore truthless heroes
I do not need anymore truthless heroes
We don't need no truthless heroes

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

I need truth

    General CommentI think there is a very strong reason why Spy Hunters video is continued in the video to My Will Be A Deadman because they both represent the corruption of humanity that comes through the sins commited by those with power and the trust of others.

    General CommentGreat Song....The song could have more than one meaning to it, I believe. However, the main one that sticks to me is just in a literal sense. Like a powerful/wealthy hero to some people, such as Hugh Hefner being caught by the CIA/police/etc. Truely, "We dont need any more truthless heroes".
    ***Please post another interpretation of the song if anyone has one, for thats the main purpose of the site. Thanks.

    General CommentIm not completly sure what this song means, but I think denmil24 comes the closest. Basically I think there talking about posers. Since this band is Christian, I take it that it implies people who might pretend to be good, honest, (etc.) in front of one group of people, but then act totally different in front of another group. "So hide yourself for now.... but we caught you plotting murder..." basically says that someone can fool us for now, but God sees all and eventually that person is gonna be discovered. Empires will fall and secrets will be revealed. This song is awesome and the video is even cooler. I love videos that kinda keep you guessing how it relates to the song. As far as I can tell the song and the video basically have to do with the stuff I just wrote. If you havent seen the video yet, check it out at steelroots.tv they got a lot of other cool rock videos too.

    General CommentThis sounds more of a song about Truthless Heroes. he knows about what they are doing--adding to their wealth and their disguises, lying lying lying to us, etc... hence "we caught you plotting murder." We know what you are doing in reality and we will not be fooled anymore. "I am the words on the page i am the death among life today i am the voice of one among the silent who's tired of burning among the flames." He is not going to be silent about it like everyone else is. If you are confused about truthless heroes go to the website truthlessheroes.com and that will help. Oh and watch Fahrenheit 911 starring some of your favorite truthless heroes. Oh and remember at the end of the song he screams "I NEED TRUTH!"

    General Commentone more thing... on the breatheanew.tk website it says andrew wrote this when a friend of his was molested by a pastor or something like that. Anyways, the pastor was a truthless hero if you get the drift.
