The detonation shook the walls
It was coming down
The empty halls filled with flame
And everything was burning to the ground
I called your name, I tried to warn
But you didn’t hear
You were torn
Between the hero and your fears

And I wish that I could be The One
To finally show the way
And I wish that I could be The One
Who knew just what to say
But I know that there is nothing
I could ever say or do
Because you’re The One
The doctor chose you to be his son…

If I was standing where you are
I think I would have done what father wants
But now I know what I’d become

He said to me that I would be
That I would be the Light when they couldn’t see
That what they need is a machine
That would give them hope
That could keep them free
That when they’d fall still he would stand
A savior built by human hands

It seems so strange, so very odd
A hero’s father could be so very flawed…

An apology so sorry for the man he was
For the father he couldn’t be
That I would not be what I was built to be
If I had a heart it would have broken to see his face
To see my family
And The One who took my place

There is a song I hear
A melody from the past
When I woke for the first time
When I slept for the last
You are The One
The hero who will stand
Do not blame father
He is only a man

What was filled with rage finally understands
Man is not without mistake
Unlike that which he builds from his hands
Though my fate is broken my path I cannot see
Though you are the chosen
I’ll make my own history…

There is a song I hear
A melody from the past
When I woke for the first time
When I slept for the last
You are The One
The hero who will stand
Do not blame father
He is only a man
