Track Name: Edric Haleen - A Letter To Humanity
The sun disappears.
The colors leave the sky.
The world awaits a brand new day.
The still of the night leaves everything serene.
At peace -- like everything’s okay.

But I can feel the pain.
I can hear the cries.
I can feel the suffering everywhere.
Yes, I can feel the strain.
I’ve endured the lies.

But that’s about to change.

I can save the world. I know what to do.
I believe in destiny, and I will see it through.
Everything’s in place. All the stars aligned.
I will be a hero.

I will end oppression.
I will end injustice.
I will end enslavement.
I will save the world.

At the sunrise, when the dawn comes,
As the world wakes, I’ll begin.
And before long, greet the new world that a hero ushered in.

As I start to pursue where my calling has led,
Know I’m thinking of you.
All the things that I’ve said are about to come true...


And it all starts tomorrow.
Track Name: "BucketHat" Bobby - Super Villain Blues
When I was very young, I found I needed to find
A way to save Humanity and better mankind.
So now, I'm working, making plans for my big move.
Too bad I've fallen victim to the supervillain blues.

Now every day, I go to work to buy my food,
'Cuz overthrowing governments ain't the cheapest thing to do.
I'm tryin' to make a better world, and no-one has a clue
That's why I've fallen victim to the supervillain blues.

Why won't the population just finally see
They'd fare off so much better if they were ruled by me
I want to dominate this place, and all that's in my way
Is some dude in a costume trying to save the day

But yes, someday, I'll rule the world, and until thay dream comes true,
I'll go back to my HQ with my supervillain blues.
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - Origin
This wasn't really in the 5 year plan
Lying on a cold examination table
Intently observed by some man I've never seen before

He's got an eyepatch and a scar on his lip
I forget his name, but it sounded Russian
His pitch sounded pretty good, this superhero schtick
But forgive me if it suddenly doesn't

My arms and legs are lashed down
I suppose some flailing would be normal
That needle's really quite large
I hope they're being careful with that thing

And Mom and Dad said "son you can have anything you want"
Now I've got the strength to lift an car and a gun that shoots 'round corners
If that cute redheaded nurse from pre-op could only see me now
There's a chance I wouldn't bore her
All I wanted was the nerve to Finish a Fight
Now these crazy scientist guys are pumping me full of nanites

This isn't what was planned
But I guess it's how it's gonna go down
The few the proud, really the only man
In the Elite Recon Soldier Program
Track Name: Godz Poodlz - The Human Bomb
Last night I dreamed
I held your face in my hands
And I watched your skin melt and explode

I never asked to be The Human Bomb
I don't want to be The Human Bomb
I'm the living storm after the calm
I'm The Human Bomb
I'm The Human Bomb

My shrink said he thinks that every super power
Reflects some deep seated fear or need
And if you're obsessed with bats
I could see how you'd end up like that
You might wish to fly or for super-speed

But I never asked to be The Human Bomb
I don't want to be The Human Bomb
Some super-science accident gone all wrong
I'm The Human Bomb
I'm The Human Bomb

And I've been cursed
What I touch explodes with a burst
And all I feel is despair
I want to take off my helmet, this suit and these protective gloves
And just breath the air
I want to feel you there
I'm sorry, but I want to touch you

Last night I dreamed
I held your face in my hands
And sparks flew but nothing happened

I never asked to be The Human Bomb
I don't want to be The Human Bomb
I am Death, I am Destruction
I'm The Human Bomb
I'm The Human Bomb
I'm The Human Bomb
Track Name: Caleb Hines - The Memoirs Of Clockwork Man
London.
1885.
A time of great darkness.
A time for a hero.
Clockwork Man.

A crazy inventor created me,
Out of spare parts on his shelf;
Then he decided he hated me,
Leaving me all by myself.

I didn't know,
Where I ought to go,
My gears didn't know what to do.

Later that night,
They told me to fight,
For the rights of the humans like you.

And now I'm Clockwork Man: I'm a crime-fighting automaton!
Clockwork Man: I'm a hero you can depend upon!
Clockwork Man - if you take me apart,
You'll find that Clockwork Man wasn't built with a heart.

Now I recount how one special case,
I teamed up with Sherlock Holmes;
And we discovered the hiding place,
Of the Psionic Gnomes.

As he fell entranced,
I bravely advanced,
Into the battle alone;

To quickly destroy,
Their latest employ,
An army of Frankenstein clones.

Because I'm Clockwork Man: I'm a crime-fighting automaton!
Clockwork Man: I'm a hero you can depend upon!
Clockwork Man - if you take me apart,
You'll find that Clockwork Man wasn't built with a heart.

'Cause hearts aren't needed if you're a hero,
Emotions hold you back and get in your way.
You can't have friends when you're at ground zero,
But sometimes I wonder...
Sometimes I wonder...

Captain Von Billiard's my nemesis,
Flying his Airship of Doom
Threat'ning the city with viruses,
And locking a girl in a room.

The hero, he thought,
Would fall for his plot,
And rescue the girl from her fate.

The gears in my head,
Said "Leave her for dead,
Burn the airship before its too late!"

Because I'm Clockwork Man: I'm a crime-fighting automaton!
Clockwork Man: I'm a hero you can depend upon!
Clockwork Man - if you take me apart,
You'll find that Clockwork Man wasn't built with a heart.
Track Name: Steve Durand - Gamma Man
Gamma Man
They call me Gamma Man
I'm an American
Super Hero

I wear a cool disguise
Shoot lasers from my eyes
And when I jump I fly
Like an arrow

I was just an ordinary
Astrophysicist
Sent on a trip
To study quasars in deep space

But all at once things took
An unexpected twist
When a burst of radiation
Changed my DNA

Now I'm stronger than
A thousand men
And my body's tough
Like an armored plate

It's the truth
My skin is bulletproof
And if I choose
I can levitate

Where there is evil
You'll find me in hot pursuit
'Cause I mean business
When I wear my super suit

(Alarm)
Gamma Man, We need you

That's the distress signal
Must-use-super-powers-to-save-earth

It's understood
I use my powers for good
I'll guard the neighborhood
Like there's no tomorrow

I don't like to boast
But as heroes go
I'm the supermost
I'm a marvel
Track Name: Denise Hudson - Invisible Girl
Stare through my hands again
Blue page to tempt me to tell … my secret
But you seem to guess it so well

Yes, no one sees the whole
It spins so close to home, truth hits down to the bone
But you get it so totally; you alone seem to see
All the way through me

Are you my friend or my enemy

And I don't let anyone, or anything see me
Invisible Girl / invisible me
The secrets inside me burn so deeper than lightning
The sneaking the fighting … the hiding
And you think that just because you see
Thru walls that you can see
Invisibly

My disguise slipped last night
Those x-ray eyes … of yours
Saw me fade right through the exit door
Of course I'm running away

Yeah you run away too you know
Sometimes I see your eyes
Sometimes we'll go away together to fight crime

And if we could fly it might stop us from falling

And if I could let somebody see the
Invisible Girl / Invisible me
The secrets inside me have always had only one key
And I guess that you want to unlock me

And You see me walk alone on a tightrope
And I will not wear my heart out on my sleeve
You say what you think
Do you think we'd make a good team?

Invisible Girl / invisible me
Could you call the shots
Could I be your robin or would you be
One nation indivisible under me?
Could we be so lucky?
Track Name: Jon Eric - Superman Sneezed
When you call, I'm there
Catch you in mid-air
All the world agrees I'm beyond com--pare

What if, what if, what if,
Tomorrow I wake up and I can't fly?
Up and I can't fly
What if, what if, what if
Tomorrow this whole world is kryptonite?

Want to hear your call
Any time at all
Will I always be there to break your fall?

What if, what if, what if,
Tomorrow I wake up and I can't fly?
Up and I can't fly
What if, what if, what if
Tomorrow this whole world is kryptonite?

I wonder if you'd cry
If I fell out of the sky
It's a bird
It's a plane
It's a falling star
It's a bird
It's a plane
It's a falling star

Up to their old tricks
Evil plans won't stick
Is this what it feels like to be sick?

What if, what if, what if,
Tomorrow I wake up and I can't fly?
Up and I can't fly
What if, what if, what if
Tomorrow this whole world is kryptonite?

I wonder if you'd cry
If I fell out of the sky
It's a bird
It's a plane
It's a falling star
It's a bird
It's a plane
It's a falling star
It's a bird
It's a plane
It's a falling star
Track Name: Heather Miller - I'm Not Wearing Tights
I didn't sign up for this job
It just started one day an unusual way
I noticed that something was odd
When I floated from bed, was I dreaming or dead?
Nope, definitely I was awake

Now suddenly people are asking
Can I save them from crooks and meteor storms?
Never been good multi-tasking
Still feel like a zero, But they call me a hero
They say all I need is a uniform

But if they call in a tight spot
I'm not wearing tights
It's a crime against fashion
And I know my rights
Leather or nylon
No matter what kind
Whoever thinks I'm wearing tights
Is out of their mind
They're out of their mind

I never looked good in spandex
And I'm already reeling from attempting at dealing
With this duel identity complex
Without being made to feel large, who's the person in charge
Of ruining my day & hurting my feelings?

If they call in a tight spot
I'm not wearing tights
It's a crime against fashion
And I know my rights
Leather or nylon
Don't matter what kind
Whoever thinks I'm wearing tights
Is out of their mind
Is out of their mind

I don't cut a fine form
Like Catwoman or Storm
Maybe I'd wear 'em
If I looked like Halle Berr, um, y
But I don't
So I won't!

If they call in a tight spot
I'm not wearing tights
It's a crime against fashion
And I know my rights
Leather or nylon
Don't matter what kind
Whoever thinks I'm wearing tights
Is out of their mind
They're out of their mind
They're out of their mind
They're out of their mind
Track Name: Sara Parsons - Starlite (Ballad For A Noble Steed)
The point of no return
Is all I see
I was living life for you
It’s all I could be
Our future looked Brite
But I guess I saw the Lite.
So I’m packing up and I’m gonna
Let it be
It don’t matter, all the times I
Pulled you through.
All the rainbow-colored bridges
I rode with you.
Those times have come and gone
And the time’s come, to move on
But I’m alone, and I’m afraid
I don’t know what to do.

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite.
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

The Color Kids abandoned
Long ago
The Sprites you left to mine
All on their own
Now all of Rainbow Land has died,
You don’t know how that feels inside.
You can’t remember how I loved you so.

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

What am I to you,
Am I your mode of transportation?
Or am I
Something more?
Am I your steed? Am I your sidekick?
Am I the source of your frustration?
Or can I be the friend that you once adored?

...Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?
Track Name: JoAnn Abbott - Why
If not me, then who?
If not now, then when?
I never want to bear that feeling
Of regret again
When I missed my chance for action
When I let it slip away
And like a fool I stood there
As my dreams all died that day- well never again.

So I’ll be the who
And this is the when
I’ll not stop until I see
My hopes made real again
You might want to call me crazy
I’ll admit my plans are strange
But I’ve looked around and I know
That this world has got to change- it’s time to begin

Don’t try to to tell me I won’t make a diff’rence
You won’t convince me not to try-
I have the will now, and I have the power
Get out of my way and watch me fly- watch me fly!
If not me- then WHO?
If not now- then WHEN?
I’ve made my choice and counted the cost
I won’t hesitate again
This is my chance this is my moment
This is the time to make my stand
If you won’t help then get back
I am off-up and away
This is my life.
Track Name: Kevin Savino-Riker - Tough Jobs Vs Iron Gates
(Bill:) I've been at this awhile
'Been thirty-five years since
I climbed from a BASIC passion
To a worldwide influence

(Steve:) I've been there and gone
And come back again now
I'm on top of the world
And I'm still climbin'

(Bill:) You'll find me everywhere
Opening Windows and doorways
To an easier way to live
And I'm bound to find more ways

(Steve:) iDo what iWant to
Because iKnow what's
Better for you
Than even you do

(Bill:) I'm trying to get
Our world in Sync

(Steve:) I'm trying to change
The way we all Think

Different schemes but the same goal
Different schemes and different dreams
Although we're not on the same team

And I’m gonna try
And I’m gonna have to try

(Both:) I'm trying to save the world
From being led astray
From a consumer's doomsday
I'm trying to save the world from you

(Steve:) Your heyday is past
So don't hold your breath
and you're turning blue from
Your blue screen of death

(Bill:) You're locked down and controlling
Like you think that we're all lost

Unprecedented gains, yeah

Than a dozen Bruce Waynes

By the way have you seen
My Uncanny X-Box?

(Steve:) I'm saving the world
From poor user experience
My offerings testify
That I'm a perfectionist

(Bill:) I'm saving the world
With product proliferance
I earned all this wealth
To become a philanthropist

(Both:) I'm trying to save the world
From being drawn to the other guy
I'm trying to save the world
Don't know if I can but I have to try
I'm trying to save the world
From being saved by you
Track Name: Ryan Welton - Underdog Blues
I got four paws
And a ton of flaws
I'm a lovable shoeshine boy
I go medieval
When the doers of evil
Set their sights on my pride and joy

And when it's time to hand out truth
I make a mess out of that phone booth

Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name
Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name

I pop pills by the barrel
Go a little bit feral
On my Polly from dusk til dawn
And when my purebread wonders
When will I return
She laments with a simple song:

"Oh where, oh where has my baby gone?"
I reappear and wave my doggie wand

Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name
Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name

I bark in rhyme
To combat sinister crime
We don't need no Riff Raff 'round here
But my motives are suspect
'Cause I'm in love with a girl
'Cause I'm in love with a girl
'Cause I'm in love with a girl who's a dog

Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name
Have no fear
Underdog is here
Underdog, baby that's my name

Oh yeah baby that's my name
Track Name: Jenny Katz - Blofeld's Beginnings
Mommy was a narcissist and daddy was a drunk
Not that I believe it's only parents who determine how the kids turn out
But there are those who shouldn't breed

They didn't pay attention and they didn't seem to care
Probably would have left him with a sitter, but the truth is they forgot that he was there
Let me tell you, he remembered

In later years, when the therapists would probe him for the root of all his anger,
Here's what he would tell:
I only wanted to be held

The day that he turned nine he got a kitten in a box
Snowball was a stand-in for all the petting that he never ever got
Happy birthday, darling

Darling
I want to ride a missile to the moon
Ten-second countdown
No one left to stop it now
Red reactor meltdown
Well I pushed the override of everything inside
Ready for attack
If the world doesn't love you back,
Stroke the white cat

He took the Persian everywhere, he smuggled it to school
Till they wrote him up for an infraction of the rules and they took the cat away
The camel's back was broken

The papers wrote in hushed and horror-stricken tones
Of the boy who sat among the monkey bars and bones with the kitten in his lap
The schoolyard charred and smoking

To get his pet back was his innocent intention
World domination was the natural extension
It all makes sense if you can feel what he felt
The little boy who just wanted to be held

I want to ride a missile to the moon
Ten-second countdown
No one left to stop it now
Red reactor meltdown
Well I pushed the override on everything inside
Steady for attack
If the world doesn't love you back,
Stroke the white cat
Stroke the white cat
Stroke the white

Ernst Blofeld only wanted to be held
Ernst Blofeld only wanted to be held
That's all he ever wanted
Track Name: Ross Durand - Don’t Turn The Page
And after all this time it comes down to this
A single man a single bullet
Struck down by freedoms I fought to protect
But you can stop it and you know it

Don’t turn the page or else it’s over
Don’t turn the page or it’s the end
Don’t turn the page or the American dream dies again

To you I may be ink and color
But I’ve carried us through wars on every land
Avenging acts of villains, sheltering us from evil
I guess that every man must meet his end

Don’t turn the page or else it’s over
Don’t turn the page or it’s the end
Don’t turn the page or the American dream dies again

So now it lies with you - Only you can save me
My fate depends on what you do
Are determined to bring me my demise
The monster at the end of this book might be you

Don’t turn the page or else it’s over
Don’t turn the page or it’s the end
Don’t turn the page...
Track Name: Charlie McCarron - Faster Than Superman
I run like lightning
Faster than Superman
At speeds unseen I
Cross the country
Round the Earth in one heartbeat
A physical mystery
But over the oceans and back
There's nothing left to see
Where's the mystery for me?

My mind is restless
My legs are strong
I pray for patience
To calm my soul and
Hold me back but I still run

I run like lightning
At speeds unheard I
See the ending
The point where time and I must meet
All that I've loved and I've lost
They're calling me to come
Where there's mystery for me
Track Name: Gorbzilla - Superhero Song
It’s not easy being a hero these days
So many heroes are so cool
You don’t have bullets or claws or some kind of death ray
You might be thought of as a fool

So Ant-Man and Aqua-man went away to another land
Where no one would laugh at them while they fight super-villains

Wonder twins were there with their gleeky chimp from space
They left the hall but no one seemed to care
Here no one ignores them or thinks their powers a disgrace
They’re just super-friendly and have interesting hair

With Ant-Man and Aqua-man they went away to another land
Where no one would laugh at them when they fought super-villains

With Ant-man and Aqua-man they found a place to do the best they can
And no one would laugh at them while they fought super villains

Mighty-Mouse, Under-Dog, Captain Caveman
Dazzler, Captain Planet, and the amazing Doll-Man
Grape Ape, Stretch Armstrong, and Sunshine Superman
All found a place where they could lend a hand

I’ll keep watching from my place on the moon
It seems that’s all I ever do
I hope that other forgotten heroes will join them soon
As sure as my name is Uatu

With Ant-Man and Aqua-man they’ll go away to another land
Where no one will laugh at them when they fight super-villains
With Ant-man and Aqua-man they’ll find a place to do the best they can
And no one will laugh at them when they fight super villains
Track Name: Bram Tant - Kebab Shop
Hello there would you like kebab
We have one of every kind
Chicken pork beef goat you name it
Pick whichever one you like
What sauce do you want with that
Garlic andalouse curry ketchup
Which vegetables I put on it
Salad tomato onions peppers
Would you like some fries with that
Small medium large extra large
Do you want any toppings
Salt mayonnaise ketchup mustard
Okay just a minute
Or wait make that ten
Here you go, enjoy your meal
Actually I can't guarantee you will
Actually I can guarantee you won't
You see, I haven't been very hygienic
I didn't wash my hands or clean the kitchen
And the meat wasn't properly roasted
So it's likely you'll get food poisoning
It seems my plans to take revenge
For the deaths of my Islamic brethren
Will be completed soon
Praise Allah
Once every foolish American in this city
Has come to grab a snack in my shop
When they eat their not-so-delicious kebab
And go home in the dead of night
Me and my children follow them
And when they have become ill
We break in, murder and rob them
And you'll be sorry to hear that you're next
You could have easily avoided this mess
If you had read my nametag before ordering
It reads "Turkish Kebab Strangler"
Seems quite obvious to me
You idiotic American
Now scram, get out of here
Before I call the cops on you
And don't think they'll believe a word you say
Because nobody ever suspects a kebab shopkeep
Oh, and just one moment before you leave
That'll be 30 dollars please

Allah akhbar!
Allah is great!
Allah akhbar!
Praise Allah!
Allah akhbar!
Allah is great!
Allah akhbar!
Praise Allah!
Track Name: The Offhand Band - Step Back Swooperman
It's not easy to be me
Child of a superhero
But it's not that Dad's off saving only strangers
While he treats me like a zero

Au contraire, he's always there
Swoopin' in most every minute
Always helping me to finish every little thing
As soon as I begin it

Homework answers by the score
So my scores are kind of crummy
With his Superbreath he cleans up all my messes
And he lets me win at rummy

Does heroics on his own
Tells me it would be traumatic
It's no wonder he can leap tall buildings while
The highest I can do's the attic

Though your Superintentions mean well, I suppose
The only super thing you do for me is Superimpose

Step back Swooperman
My style is cramped
My progress prevented
Development damped
I can't get very far
As long as you're party-pooper-man
Step back Swooperman

Hanging out sometimes with friends
Maybe going to the mall
But no matter where I go, your X-ray vision
Always sees me through the wall

Every little thing I do
You just have to have your knowledge
What on Earth will happen when I'm fighting bad guys
Much less partying in college?

Yeah, it's nice that you just want to know I'm okay
But with your constant Supervision, how can I find my way?

Step back Swooperman
My style is cramped
My progress prevented
Development damped
I'm not asking for much
Just stop being such a snooperman
Step back Swooperman

Harder than you think
To grow up with falling not allowed
Now I'm on the brink
Since I'm not using it, I'm losing it now

Maybe I will steal away
And become a supervillain
Wreaking havoc so you'll have to clean my messes
I'm sure that would be fulfillin'

Massive crises every day
Is there no-one else to brave 'em?
Maybe if you just gave everyone a chance
They wouldn't need someone to save 'em

Step back Swooperman
My style is cramped
My progress prevented
Development damped
I might make a mistake
At least I'll be Shake-My-Stupor-Man

Step back Swooperman
My style is cramped
My progress prevented
Development damped
I might make a mistake
At least I'll be Shake-My-Stupor-Man
Step back Swooperman
Track Name: Emperor Gum - Costume (Squirrel Girl)
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

So lately I've been feeling
Like my world has reached its end
I've got no one to call me honey
I've got no one to call me friend
But now the time has to come to find inside the real me

'Cause no one understands me
'Cept the squirrels and they can't speak
And school's no fun when all you learn
Is a tail makes you a freak
Why own these superpowers if the only thing they grant me
Is the power to be outcast and forever lonely?

See, I can do amazing things
Jump higher than a house
Run faster than a moving train
Make less noise than a mouse
So if I can't see woods for trees, its time to leave

So I've moved to New York City
To fight crime and prove my worth
I've beaten thugs from 8th to 59th
Made Central Park my turf
It doesn't matter who you are, you can't beat me
When I'm backed up by the squirrel army

I found society outside of social norms
Shoulder to shoulder I found a home
With the Great Lake Avengers, now all a girl can wish

Is for a certain New Warrior to taste a hazelnut kiss

I beat Doctor Doom for Ironman
For Speedball the Bug Eyed Voice
Deadpool and Pluto, too
Though Thanos was the choice
Of my foes who underestimated me

See, when I put this outfit on
It is not a disguise
It gives me real confidence
To any challenge rise

Though I was born as Doreen Green I've grown to be
A superhero who can beat anybody:

Squirrel Girl!
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - The Ballad Of Henry Pym (Shadow)
Lemme tell you the story of a tiny man
Fightin’ crime the best he can
Good old Hank Pym was a scientist
Doin’ research and checkin’ stuff off his list

He cooked up a powerful new gas
And when the smoke and noise had passed
He woke up shrunken on the floor
He knew he was now something more

He was the Ant-man, he’s the incredible Ant-man
He shrinks to microscopic size
Can’t fight much crime, Lord knows he tries

He’s not strong like the Hulk or Superman
But he’s got lots of tiny friends
The ants upon whom he depends

Built a helmet to communicate
With his six-legged pals so he won’t be late
In kickin’ butt and fighting crime
All powered by his Pym Enzyme

Some Egghead tried to take him down
But Henry took out that dumb clown
Then he met a girl who stung his heart
She crawled under his skin from the start

He is the Giant-man, he’s the extraordinary Giant-man
He grows to such amazing heights
But still looks goofy in his tights

He’s not cool like Dr. Strange or Iron Man
Sometimes when he cannot hack it
He’ll turn into a YellowJacket

Ant-man and the Wasp, they’re quite a team
But Henry lacked a certain self-esteem
He tried to grow, to steal the show
A Goliath among men, you know

But when he had a larger figure
It wasn’t just his head that got bigger
His ego grew to mammoth size
And we all know that’s none too wise

He's Giant Man - Overcompensating Giant Man
He grows to Megolithic size
Crackin’ the bad guys with his thighs.

He's not funny like Howard the Duck or Forbush Man
His brain is losin' all compunction
Right from wrong just will not function

Built a robot who was really bad
Just so he could be a Dad
His Avenger Pals are all so cross
because his moral compass' lost

He’s dicked around for 40 years
And cause his pals nothing but tears
Just hang it up –it’s been too long
You’ve even got a lousy theme song

He is the Ant Man - He's The Pathetic Ant Man
Hey, pal, you should just get a life
What superhero beats his wife?

He's not psychotic like Elektra or Wolverine
But he’s still got his tiny friends
The ants upon whom he depends

Ant Man - He's just Pathetic Ant Man
Track Name: Bryce Jensen - Dearest Firestorm (Love, Multiplex) (Shadow)
Since that day back at the plant we've been the worst of foes
The silly hero/villain thing always brings us to blows
Finally we've realized just what you mean to us
We've fallen for both of you and it's time we made a fuss

Maybe Ron and Marty act as if neither is keen
But when you get together you make one big flamin' queen
We can tell you're into us, you just can't hide what's true
So bring yourselves right over and we'll get into you two

We could catch a movie (oh yeah)
And dinner would be groovy (oh yeah)
Go site-seeing at juvie (oh yeah)
Hey, whatever turns you on

If you'd only search your souls, you two would surely see
That you and you are truly meant for me and me and me

Don't let our appearance fool you, we're still dear old Dan
And we'll love you in ways you never could be by one man
Secrecy is fine if you can't set ego aside
But when we're all together you'll swallow more than your pride

There's a place we could go (oh yeah)
To keep it on the down low (oh yeah)
And no one ever need know (oh yeah)
Just think of us when we're gone (oh yeah)

If you'd only search your souls, you two would surely see
That you and you are truly meant for me and me and me
And me and me and me and me and me
Track Name: Mick Bordet - They Don't Want Me (Shadow)
[Verse1]
There's a boy scout, a bat and an Amazon
Some guy with wings on his head
A bunch of dudes with ring fetishes
And a Robin Hood wannabe
They're the team who're supposed to be
Keeping us safe in our bed

[Chorus]
But they don't want me in
Their super-team
They've got all the powers they need
(So they say)
They don't care that I can
Move planets with a thought
"We've got your number
We might call you some day..."

[Verse 2]
There's a defrosted patriot, a drunk tin man,
A wife-beating giant-come-ant
A thunder god with a boomerang hammer
And a Robin Hood wannabe
They're the team that's supposed to be
Protecting when webcrawlers can't

[Chorus]
Track Name: Danny Blackwell - Love Song From Robin To Batman (Shadow)
I don't like it when you call me your bird
I'm your boyfriend
I don't like it when you call me your bird
I'm your boyfriend
I remember the first time I stepped inside your cave
It was after an all night rave
We'd taken lots of ecstacy
Still I knew you couldn't be
More than a bat to me
We shared a flat for 2 weeks in London town
You said I was so spunky you feared
That you would drown
We fought most every night
Even though you tried to make things right
I had to fly away
And on that fateful day
All that I can say
Is:
BATMAN you were running down the motorway
And my love came up the other way...
Flat Man!
Track Name: Dr. Lindyke - Save The World (Shadow)
I wish I had a day off
I wish I had some time to myself
Maybe I could kick my feet up
Maybe I could take a book off the shelf

Maybe I could watch some TV
Maybe I could watch a movie all the way through
I'd like to stop and write some poetry
I know a million things that I'd rather do ---

But I've got to save the world
But didn't I save the world yesterday?
I've got to save the world
I thought I saved the world yesterday!

But no!
Some loony made a death ray
Some other fool is trying to freeze D.C.
Some villain wants everything his own way
Some other only wants a piece of me

Maybe I should've listened to my poppa
Maybe helped the family business grow
'stead of playing universal copper
'stead of trying to vanquish some super foe...

[Instrumental]

Then I realize I'd be dead with everybody else
If I didn't stick my neck out
If I didn't take a chance
If I didn't own the problem
If I didn't dance the dance
We'd be cinders on a cinder
We'd be blood upon a lance ---

So I'm going to save the world
Though I saved the world yesterday
I've got to save the world
Got to save the world
'Cause nobody else is gonna do it, I might as well get to it

Gonna save the world
Though I saved the world yesterday
I've got to save the world
Got to save the world ...
'Cause nobody else is gonna do it, I might as well get to it

I've got to save the world
Got to save the world ...
I've got to save the world
Got to save the world ...
I've got to save the world
Got to save the world ...
Track Name: Paul Peterson - Hero (Shadow)
This Prison
Of words I say
Trapped and grey

This jail
Niether blood nor stone
My mind calls home

The villan
I want to be
Can only see

The heroes
Joined to fight
A cowards might

And I don't wanna be a hero
I'm tired of helping you out

And I don't wanna be a hero
I'm tired and I wanna wipe you out

My powers
A sight to see
One on one you will lose indeed

Destroying
Those I see as right
They rule with all thier might

Freedom
Is illusion where
No chance of winning there

Unhappy
I bide my time
Bleak in every corner of my mind

And I don't wanna be a hero
This mask is wearing thin

And I don't wanna be a hero
I just want to destroy all of them
