Song Lyrics


Kill The Hero
by John Cooper, Bob Farrell, Paul Wright

Album: Hero - The Rock Opera


KAI:
I submit here this common criminal
His dark evil is so subliminal
His foul teachings are so subversionist
His rogue nation is pro-rebellionist
Incites people to riot in the streets
He makes traitors of everyone He meets
The time has come
This Man must feel the law

Chorus:
Kill the Hero - do what I.C.O.N. wants you to
He's an enemy of the state
A threat to be subdued
Kill the Hero - this imposter full of lies
We need I.C.O.N.'s fist to take Him down
And see that He must die
Oh, this Man must surely die

GOVERNOR PILATE:
You revile me, you small and pompus twit
Don't waste my time with your religious fits
I see no signs He's I.C.O.N.'s enemy
Is love now criminal activity?
What deed demands that we should make Him bleed
This sad preacher who means nothing to me
I find no fault
I find no fault at all

KAI:
(Chorus)

HUNTER (to HERO):
Don't just stand there and let them railroad You
Don't just stand there - You've got Your life to lose
You know Pilate has the power to do You in
Can't You speak up? This travesty will end
Make it end - they're gonna kill You

KAI & STREET URCHINS:
Kill the Hero - do what I.C.O.N wants you to
He's an enemy of the state
A threat to be subdued
Kill the Hero - make Him bleed for what He's done
It's an absolute necessity
That you don't let Him run

(Chorus)

PILATE:
Kai, I have no energy for this...
Devlin, take this Jew Hero back to Brooklyn...
(whispers) And maybe He doesn't make it all the way there...
Let your street people decide His fate.

(aloud) The court of I.C.O.N. is hereby adjourned.

I wash my hands of this... sick madness.
