lyrics

Beautiful Creatures

I believe we are super heroes
In writhing amnesia
Riddled by arrows,
Bound to a lie
Blind to the abyss
Our wings torn, with halos of doom
Dressed in black, shrouded in gloom
We are super heroes with x ray vision
That confine themselves to the collision
Of mundane experience with petty power
And everyday yellow press trash towers
Preferring the security of a regular job
Than saving the world from a lynch mob.

We could vanquish all evil
With a toss of our heads
Shape shift to wizards
Take dragons to bed
It’s all at the tip of our tongue not the sword
But we ignore our capacities
Of the unexplored
Kryptonite rays
Ablaze in our hearts
And instead trail the dull shine
Of phone and computer parts
Listening to the complex lies
Of apes that revise truth
As an advertised
Bluetooth phone booth
We are super heroes in turmoil
Thrashing and crying entrapped in the mortal coil

Depressed, overweight
Cancerous centaurs
Stuck in the wardrobe like dinosaurs
Await news of a miracle
Praying for Dumbledore
Or a deadpan batman
Blind to the fact that we are Aslan
Weakened by denial, the sub dial
Of our minds that can pierce stone
But we bemoan our fate
Worry that its too late and
Take another Xanax,
To calm our panic
We who fly to the moon
