Save the day
Come take this all away
Come on now

Say something to slow her hands around my neck
Just cut off her arms
Throw my pills into the well we drink
infect the words that we say

Can you hear me now?
Why can't you hear me?

Save the day
Come take this all away
Come on now (whoa... oh...)

My hearts on the floor
What are you waiting for
Come on now (whoa... oh...)

Indecisive thoughts running through my veins
Come wash them away
Slowly screaming calling out your name
Come save the day

If we find what we're missing
The space that needs filling
The strings' still embracing my neck
We'll hold up each but look for another
To see if our words will connect

What are you waiting for?

    General CommentI love this song! BTJ is a very underrated band, and in my opinon this is their best song.

    However, these lyrics are missing a lot. But I'll glaze it over and go onto the meaning.

    For me, the message is clear. The narrarator's life is going down the drain, and they are calling to someone to help them find ground again... their 'Hero' as the title suggests. A very powerful song, one of my favorites.
