I can't believe that it was good for anyone, to me worth the wait
I doubt that anybody got their money's worth
But the attention sure felt great
With all eyes upon me, some filled with tears, some couldn't see

It burned like a cancer when the answer did occur to me
Creep from the cradle, but a hero's what I want to be
Keep it moving people cause there's nothing more for you to see
I'm just a jerk, but a hero's what I want to be yeah, oh yeah

Love me, love me sweet cowardice
Now that the thrill is mine for the moment
We really didn't need another suicide
Or a song explaining why, but it's not dignified

But I can't seem to kiss it goodbye
It burned like a cancer...
Keep it moving people...
It burned...

Keep it...
Erase this disaster even faster than you came to see
A creep from the cradle and a hero driven want to be
For your abuse, but not intended for internal use
I'm just a jerk , but a hero's what I want to be

    General Comment:This song always reminds me of Stone Cold Steve Austin because I first heard this song in a promo video for him.
