"Superheroes" as written by Esthero and Martin Daniel Mc Kinney....
Stay awhile longer, sweet tongue of fur and feather.
There is a white breast
Waiting for you here,
Between the superheroes; and the electric blanket is warm.

I could be sweet.
I could be young, and fresh,
If I weren't so old and used,
And wet, and wet, I am wet.

I try not to ruin the moment.
Tell me all your secrets and your torments.
You're delicious, you're delicious.
Send me on a quest for lullabies, and more.

What would it take for you to see
What I have got?
I've got more than you know.
Open your eyes, I cannot be what I am not.

I'm not what I used to be, I'm not what...
I'm not what I used to be, and I...
I don't know myself from anybody else.
I'm not what I used to be, I'm not what...
I'm not what I used to be, and I...
You don't know what you have done.
My frame is here but the mind is gone, gone away.

So stay awhile longer, sweet tongue of fur and feather.
Don't cut the white breast.
I've been waiting for you, here.

I'm not who I used to be.
Bigger, and better, and faster, and wetter.
And bigger, and better, and faster, and wetter.

    General CommentDamn it!!! I wish that a girl would feel this way about me again. So eager to impress and to give. She seems alittle lost within her own identity but that doesn't seem to matter because she is caught on the hopes of gaining attention from another. She also seems to want to be an outlet or comfortor for someone, "Tell me all your secrets and your torment." I don't know but I love this song.

    General Commentive always thought this song was about her being in love with a younger man-as in superhero sheets, electric blankets, etc...

    General Commenti agree, she's talking about another woman.... she's professing that she's just as good as another (younger) woman...

    General CommentWhen I heard the line "Between the superheroes", all I could think of was Esthero wearing adult Underoos with Wonder Woman on them while being under an electric blanket.

    Lyric Correctioni think it's "you're delicious. your delicious eyes send me on a quest for lullabies."

    i always thought it was about the same as Venus as a Boy. sunrise, sunlight, white sheets in the morning. sight gives way to touch as the primary sense.
