"Be the Hero" as written by and Kevin Moore Jim Matheos....
We can walk hard
in your school yard
See your face
as we terrorize the place
Keep your head down
Keep your voice down
Tell the town because we're comin' inside
comin' inside

He can high-five
in a skydive
He's a hero from coast to coast yeah
He can phone home
from the green zone
He's got an air raid siren ring tone

Be the hero from coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah
Be the hero from coast to coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah

Get sight of a gun in your camera
coca cola cooling your system
Kill seventy one and get silver
Hurry up son, get some ransom

Be the hero from coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah
Be the hero from coast to coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah

He can high-five
in a skydive
He's a hero form coast to coast yeah
He can phone home
from the green zone
He's got an air raid siren ring tone

Be the hero from coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah
Be the hero from coast to coast to coast
Be the hero from coast to coast yeah

    General Comment"He can hi-five

    He's a hero form coast to coast yeah
    He can phone home

    General CommentI can't be sure but I am pretty positive that the song has to do with the war in Iraq. The green zone is the area where they set up the Iraqi government and it was known as a secure area. This being opposed to the areas known as red zones. Seems to me that he is criticizing the military and the way that the soldiers have been treating war, which should be taken very seriously.
