"We Don't Need Another Hero" as written by and Terry/lyle Britten....
Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can`t make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don`t need another hero
We don`t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

Looking for something
We can rely on
There`s gotta be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear till nothing else remains

All the children say
We don`t need another hero
We don`t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

So what do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a light
Or end in the dark
Give it all or nothing

We don`t need another hero
We don`t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

    General CommentA great song that refers to a very entertaining movie.

    The verse that starts with "So what do we do with our lives?" is probably my favorite.

    General CommentSurprised there arent more comments here, as i suppose most folks are ewwhenevr they happen upon a song near and dear to them. I always feel such pangs of nostaligia and hopefulness whenever i hear this song. It reminds me of a time when me capacity for frelling things deeply (like hope) was so much wider. No that I'm an "adult" and everything must be taken in stride in order to function i realize that there is a price to pay. that equanimity is a double edged sword. But this song along with a few others somehow tap into my the reserve behind my "reserve". Ill listen to this song at lunch today and walk around hopeful/purposeful for a bit.
