lyrics

Six hundred feet per second
Concentrated will set free
Reaching out, casting down
Imaginary enemies

Breathing in the smell of clipped grass
And nothing but the sight picture exists
Hold my breath, still my hands
Breathing out, I make a fist

We did this together
I could not reach alone

I could be a hero
If I had force to match ambition
I would keep you ever at my side
My head gets full of dreams
Great things I need you to accomplish
And if it's great
Who can say that it's not right?

We took a bird out of the sky
I was not wronged, I was not needing
My first taste of power awoke some devil
Just grows faster if you keep feeding
You were there so why is this on me?
You couldn't take a little responsibility?
Authority will make anyone a fool
And a killer's just as good as that killer's tools

I could be a hero
iI I had force to match ambition
I would keep you ever at my side
My head gets full of dreams
Great things I need you to accomplish
If it's great then who's to say
That it's not right?

I could be a hero
And this world could use a couple
I would keep your lessons at my side
Without everything at stake
Not like I'd try to hurt somebody
So what's the hurt in knowing how to fight?
And knowing how will tell me when it's right..?

Guns are not toys, but kids have them anyway
