about

A song inspired by "The Watchmen", dealing with the idea of being a super hero and growing old.

lyrics

A leather belt stained with blood and tears
The folded cape has held that crease for years
This dresser drawer guards the life I know
I'm anxious, restless, it's too late to turn back now

The suit is on, the gloves are pulled up tight
The mask is drawn, I step into the night
But the street seems much darker than it once was
I'm frightened, and nervous, it's too late to turn back now

But I know
That it's too late to turn back, the choice was to fly or to fall
So each day I step closer to hearing the last curtain call
I serve justice and truth, with vengeance I fight crime
But now I'm throwing my punches into the past
Fighting the hands of time

I spent my life pushing back the tide
But water flows towards me from every side
Now the crashing of waves brings a deafening sound
I'm washed up, and wasted, just struggling not to drown

But I know
That It's too late to turn back, the choice was to fly or to fall
So each day I step closer to hearing the last curtain call
I serve justice and truth, with vengeance I fight crime
But now I'm throwing my punches into the past
Fighting the hands of time

Now I must fight this fight
Sacrifice all this night to set you free
From this evil tyranny
In the end it's them or me

The suit is on, the gloves are pulled up tight
The mask is drawn, I step into the night
