"Need a superhero, not a superstar"

lyrics

I’m scared of the monsters in my closet
Of the future right ahead
Guess I’m scared of the latter more

See, he’s got no fancy X-ray vision
And no rounds of ammunition
What we need is someone just like us

I look out the window and wait
It’s raining, is it too late?
Lo and yonder, flashing thunder
Here he comes!

High in the sky the lightning strikes
Crashing down the thunder bites
Save the day, oh save us
Whether you’re broke or brokenhearted
When life don’t go as anticipated
I need a superhero now

We’ve got too many malls, low self-esteem
Don’t seem to grow up, but we are aging
Sure we can do with some help here

I look out the window and wait
Do come before it’s too late
Lo and yonder, flashing light
Oh here he comes!

Get the bad guys, fakes and swindlers yeah
Gonna beat them all
Need a superhero, yes we need him now

Need a superhero, not a superstar
