lyrics

Nevertheless you're in distress he'll come and save you
And whisk you away to a safer place
Couldn't have guessed I'd have to follow such a class act
Tall, dark, and superman he raised the stakes

But his signal in the sky is a silhouette
Of the girl he used to love who's now his pet
And you feel though he is gone you owe a debt
'Cause he blessed you with his sparse companionship

At the end of the day
You cut it so close and you used every bit you had
Now he's flying away
The savior of saviors, tried to steal your last laugh
But now I'm here and though I may not be able to hurdle the stars for you
Well I'd jump through a hoop so you could move on

Every hero should choose love before his city
And darling it's a pity that he chose his town
As for me I don't hold his responsibility
So we can watch his city burn down

And I'll hold you as the buildings fall apart
It may be cruel but really it was all his fault
'Cause it's you he should have cared for from the start
Can you blame me I'm a villain with a heart

Before the break of the day
Start cutting the ties before you lose every bit you have
Now he's shying away
A stranger of strangers, tried to steal your last laugh
But now I'm here and I wont give you up to a sheep dressed in wolf's clothing
He's yesterday's headline but today I love you

There comes a time where everybody makes a choice
To be the hero vigilante
If stealing you is wrong then I'm a crooked thief
and I don't want to be right

No I don't want to be right
No I don't want to be right

But at the end of the day
You cut it so close and you used every bit you had
(Now you're using mine)
Now he's flying away
The savior of saviors, your superman's come and past
(At the speed of light)
But now I'm here and though I may not be able to hurdle the stars for you
Well I'd jump through a hoop so you could move on too

Warpstar Tucson, Arizona

In 2011, three guys formed a band and played a handful of shows, then hid in a cave in the middle of the desert for five years. When they came out they released their debut album. This is the story of that band.
