"Superman" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
You've been on my mind
And I don't think I have the time
To listen to your voice
I've heard it all before
It's been seeping through the floor
Shut behind closed doors
But I can see right through you now
Yeah

The beneficial lies
Are told to keep us with closed eyes
Shading what's in store
I guess it's up to me
To find the lock and turn the key
And open up theses doors
But I can see right through now
Yeah

Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day
Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day

Well you've been on my mind
And I don't think I have the time
To listen to your voice
I've heard it all before
It's been seeping through the floor
Shut behind closed doors
But I can see right through you now
Yeah

Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day
Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day

I don't want to follow (whoa)
You can't make me follow (whoa)
I don't want to follow (whoa)
You can't make me follow now

Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day
Oh yeah I'm superman
A three piece suit and a master plan
Here I come to save the day

    General CommentI think this song is about society, trends, and the government.

    "I don't want to follow
    you can't make me follow
    I don't want to follow
    you cant make me follow now "

    and superman might be a sarcastic perspective on how the government thinks it's so big and tough and so righteous "here I come to save the day".

    "you've been on my mind and I don't think I have the time
    to listen to your voice
    I've heard it all before, it's been seeping through the floor
    shut behind closed doors "...I think describes UL's take on The Man's voice, how they keep spewing out the same old patriotic white capitalist hoopla year after year behind closed doors, but as it seeps through the floor UL can hear what they say. They don't have the time to listen to them however because they either don't want to or are too busy doing what they want to do, not what The Man wants them to do.

    I know this is all extremely topical, but that's just what I get from it.
