We Were Superheroes

What was it like
To live out days like a child?
Why cant I remember
Those days when we ran wild?

Do you remember the days of donning capes and superpowers?
The enemies we fought
The cities we'd save
Hour after hour
Do you remember these days when we were dynamic duos?
Brother! Do you remember when-
When we were superheroes?

Running around aloud
Without shoes and without a care!
Soaring around in skies
Made in our minds with no need for air!

Do you remember the days when we were free?
We were invincible
We were powerful
We were whoever we wanted to be.
Do you remember our days of innocence no one else knows?
Brother! Do you remember when-
When we were superheroes?

Where are those days
That bring sighs into my chest?
One day we'll be back
In time when, maybe, life was at its best...

Bombshell Reprise

There's a hollowed out house
From a bombshell drop.
Shadows flashburnt to the walls
Sparse shelter offered atop.

A city left in vacant ruin
From a megaton blast.
A shockwave to swallow it up
Lives stolen away so fast.

A crater remains to see,
Residue still lingers in air
Along a faltering sense of safety
How could this have been fair?

A neighbor now stranger
Scavenge what can be found
All thoughts revolve in madness
This is no longer 'safe and sound'.

The decision to stop a country
So consequence falls here.
Leaving a city in aftershock and dust
For the whole world to fear.

An Apology in Advance.

My dear son,
Know I wasn't always like this.
My sweet daughter,
Know what I mean when I kiss.

My beloved children,
Allow love into your beginning lives.
Do not imitate father,
Doubtful of it, no matter his tries.

Happiness, my dears,
Reality available to those willing.
Unlike your father,
His thoughts warrant it unfulfilling.

My strong young son,
Help those drowning in what is dark.
My kind hearted girl,
Pray for those broken to come back.

My little doll,
Look to your mother.
My little man,
Pray for your father.

I am only a man.
A flawed representation of our Maker.
Please children,
Do not let this spirit, in your lives, linger.


Self Aware.

Have I really been gone this whole time,
I've been waiting
Where did you go to this- this moment.

I've been looking around for a long time,
I've been searching
Where did all this time just- just go to.

It seems like I've been passing by forever,
I've been watching
Where are all the sight and- and sounds.

I feel like forever and seconds are alike,
I'm losing touch
Moments and Millennia seem the- the same.

I've become something infinite and breaking,
I've seen nothing
I've seen absolutely everything I- I could.

I can't seem to grip onto my existence,
I've lost it
I can feel everything flying by- by me.

I am everywhere though I know to be lost,
I cannot tell
I've never felt this before. I am- I'm confused.

Where am I?

I... I feel like I've been gone this whole time...
Why have I been waiting?
