A hero was part of a movement from the not so distant past
He and others like him felt the world was changing fast
So they embarked on a journey with their very best intentions
And thought that what began with them would never find an end

[Chorus]
Ready, set, go
It's easy you know
It's easy to get wrapped up in the madness
Ready or not
It's all that they got and so it goes
Suspend your disbelief in revolution
Their solutions were the way for them to change the world they lived in
the rich got rich, the poor got even poorer
And the world engulfed in war only added to the horror

Unlike the more moderate movements that preceded their's
They were absolutely unconcerned with splitting hairs
They fought for their rights and believed that they might even change the human race
But global revolution never seemed to show it's face

[Chorus]

    General Commenti think its about the struggles faced by the citizens of the Soviet Union before the Communist Revolution occurred and is about finding ways to overcome them all.

    General CommentThe CD as a whole is about Leon Trotsky's part in the surfacing of communism, which was referred to by Trotsky as a "Permanent Revolution." Prologue is when Trotsky's story, and communism, begin.
