"Margot Kidder" as written by Francis Edward Turner, Benjamin Russell Erring Dawson, Thomas Russell Fowler and Julia Ruzicka....
You wouldn’t know it to look at me,
but I’m a superhero
I’ve got x-ray vision and everything
My frail frame belies my strength
I can lift tall buildings
with one hand tied behind my back

But the morning after each episode
I wake up at home, alone

Despite my mediocre looks,
I’m daily dared by damsels
to fight international crime

In the end I always win the day –
I save the world, I get my girl
But the morning after each episode
I wake up at home, alone

The comfort of knowing that
I’ve saved you all wears thin

My superhuman efforts largely go unrewarded
The government won’t take my phone calls

On my days off I hang around the centre of town,
but I don’t get stopped
But the morning after each episode
I wake up at home, alone

The comfort of knowing that
I’ve saved you all wears thin
The day after each episode
I wake up and wish that I
wouldn’t be expected to get out of bed and help mankind
I’d comb my hair a little differently and put on some glasses,
find somewhere to hide,
tell the United Nations they’ve got the wrong number and I’d live a quiet life

    General CommentHmm, I love this song. It has a distinct sense of melancholy about it. I dunno about the meaning. Maybe Frank is comparing being in a touring band to being a superhero. He works and works in this band and yet they still remain largly ignored by music press and stuff. He's not asking for number one singles, just a smidge of recognition. And then maybe, sometimes he's sick of doing the whole touring thing and just wants a quiet life. I dunno, if this is the actual meaning, but it's just the impression I get.

    General CommentAlso, I think I read somewhere that Margot Kidder is bi-polar. So maybe Frank is saying that being in a band and then going about 'normal' life feels a bit bi-polar and that they are two separate personalities in one.
