Sing a song, commemorate it
Everything you’ve lost
Write how long it’s always taken
Just to swim across

You were always blurry-eyed
You meant it how you said
Bending down, observing lives
As you pronounce them dead

Hero, Hero
Of some lovely story
Nobody ever wrote

Lean out from your tower, darling
Cast your shadow down
Spend your saved up hours, darling
Nothing matters now

You dreamt your sorrows welled like water
Washing all our flaws
One never saw a better martyr
Dying for applause


Maybe you’d have made it
Easier on us all
If you had never taken it
Upon yourself at all
