lyrics

So the plans are set in motion
You can lock yourselves in and wait it out
These are the last days
All in, you've played and lost the game
No place to go, no more place to stay
If it's all the same, my friend
It'll all add up to nothing in the end
(If you don't do anything)

What's worth saving
And what's worth letting go?
You never really think about it
Until it's time to go
Will someone save us?
Or will they let us die?
Somebody out there cares, I know it
Somebody out there cares, I know
This planet needs a hero
This planet needs a hero

Wildfires extinguish downtown lights
Highwaymen terrorize the night
Looking for their lowest low (the lowest, the lowest, the lowest of the low)
How the hell we got here, well we'll never know
Madmen outstanding in their field
Bloodstained alleys and backstreets had revealed
(The heroes, defenders, protectors of life)
Would find themselves cut down at the end of a knife

You could save this whole wide world
Hero to all good boys and girls
But on the couch, you'll still remain
Watching reruns and wondering

What's worth saving
And what's worth letting go?
You never really think about it
Until it's time to go
Will someone save us?
Or will they let us die?
Somebody out there cares, I know it
Somebody out there cares, I know

'Cause you know your life sucks
When you're down to ten bucks
And a bottle full of sin
You don't know how the fuck
You wore down your luck
And you boxed yourself right in

But you still put on your mask
And when they ask, you'll say, "I'm here"
I'm here
I'm here
I'm here
And then the world will know
There's nothing to fear 'cause you're here
I'm here
I'm here
I'm here

What's worth saving
And what's worth letting go?
You never really think about it
Until it's time to go
Will someone save us?
Or will they let us die?
Somebody out there cares, I know it
Somebody out there cares, I know
This planet needs a hero
This planet needs a hero
This planet needs a hero
