"Something Like A Hero" as written by and Charlotte Martin....
Hello boys
Got directions to the bombshell factory?
And a bowflexing nightmare tendency?
Hesitate
Where's the tape, my retired beauty queen?

Hello girls
Truth can make you stare into the mirror for hours
And could lipgloss save a nation, Mr. Powers?
Come into what's my own disappear zone

Close my ears
I close my eyes
In the world of a stupid girl
And in her stupid dress size
So who are we?
Who's the judge?
And are you something like a hero?

No mistakes
Different versions of the girl right next to you
And I'm knocking on your door and can't get through
And I cry and I sigh and I try to

Close my ears
I close my eyes
In the world of a stupid girl
And in her pettiest of lies
So who are we?
Who's the judge?
And are you something like a hero?

Dull sensations
Push them to the wall
Oh to the wall, yeah
And the thorns that fall, oh
Have the guts to walk upon them all
Yeah
To walk upon them all
Yeah
To walk upon them all
Yeah

Halfway there
I was waiting by the phone for you to care
And I can't make a seed grow anywhere
So I wait
So I wait
Are you out there?

Close my eyes
I close my ears
In the world of a stupid girl
And in her shallowest of fears
So who are we?
Who's the judge?
And are you something like a hero?

Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
Are you something like, something like a hero?
Are you something like a hero?
A hero?
A hero?

    General Commenthmmm, what is the world coming to. everyone trying to be like the "perfect" girls they see all around them. "could lipgloss save a nation", she's basically saying get over yourselves & find something actually worth fighting for.

    General Commenti have to agree. gives me the feeling that we need to be our own heroes to save ourselves from society. most people won't do that because they are too entranced in trying to be like everyone else.
    ps-i love the chant/rap...anyone know where i can get the words to that?

    General CommentI think I read somewhere that either Charlotte or someone she knew struggled with anorexia and that's what this song is about, anorexia and how it messes with your mind and how hard it is to get over that.

    General CommentI know she struggled with an eating disorder, and this theme definitely drives the song.
    I think it's about learning to save yourself. No man can heal or save you from yourself.
