I said, my friend, at the end of the day
I feel like the end of the road
He said hey, my friend, I feel your pain
Do you really think you're alone?
I said it feels like it, and I gotta say
I see myself not being around
But I see you every day, all discontent and dismay
And I'm thanking god for disillusioned frowns

If you want me to yell,
I'll yell for you
If you want me to cry,
Baby, I'll cry
Cause I never knew you felt this way
When you say you do, I don't wanna die
Neither of us is blind
I will stand for you if you'll stand for me
Free the hero inside and leave Nero behind

We need a call to arms
Every friday at ten
We can meet at the malls
Cause that's where we'll find them
Bring your scars
And your rebel yells
When they run for their cars
We can tell 'em all where to go
(To hell)

If you want me to yell,
I'll yell for you
If you want me to cry,
Baby, I'll cry
Cause I never knew you felt this way
When you say you do, I don't wanna die
Neither of us is blind
I will stand for you if you'll stand for me
Free the hero inside and leave Nero behind

So just speak your mind
And we can turn the tide
They say that freedom has died
But buddy, we're still alive
So just laugh at their lies
Don't let 'em act so snide
All that you need is inside
So leave Nero behind
Leave Nero behind
