I am so high. I can hear heaven.
I am so high. I can hear heaven.
No heaven, no heaven dont hear me.

And they say that a hero can save us.
Im not gonna stand here and wait.
I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as they all fly away.

Someone told me love will all save us.
But how can that be, look what love gave us.
A world full of killing, and blood-spilling
That world never came.

And they say that a hero can save us.
Im not gonna stand here and wait.
I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as they all fly away.

Now that the world isn't ending
It's love that I'm sending to you.
It isn't the love of a hero
And that's why I fear it won't do.

And they say that a hero can save us.
I'm not gonna stand here and wait.
I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as they all fly away.

And they're watching us
(Watching Us)
As they all fly away.

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone who has had their beliefe in love shattered. They used to believe that with love you could be saved, but now believe that love causes much more pain then it is worth.

    General CommentI agree more with white_stone_3... It's about someone who wants to change the world by love. Someone who can't watch anymore, who wants to do something...

    General Comment"Now that the world isn't ending, it's love that I'm sending to you"

    There is some kind of learned REALISM here. The singer expected a dramatic, heroic DELIVERANCE or SALVATION of some kind. That did not come. So he has to accept the world as it is -- undramatic, unheroic, and full of bad as well as good.

    Was this song written FOR Spiderman? It's basically perfect for describing Spiderman's coming of age.

    General CommentEvery song I read by these guys I realise how commercial they are , and how fucking gay they are as well. They remind me of the Backstreet Boys of Hard Rock, their concerts are full of 12 year old girls and boys and fruitcakes.
