about

Let us all be our own superheroes. And superheroes for one another. Just in case Batman is busy that night.

lyrics

Castaway Carly, she wanders alone
Hair all knotted with feather and bone
Bound up with spells, fervent and haunted
She bleeds for the soul of the world

Wishes that crumble to dust long forgotten
A parchment of yearnings gone dry

No fickle fates, no ravening storm,
No tides will dissuade her from calling
An honor-bound soldier, tattered and torn
With the will to do right by us all

Does she sing for a savior, return of the king
Draw the sword from the stone, and cast off the ring
A dashing young hero in flashing red cape
Come to vanquish the ills of the world

I share in your sorrow, my beautiful friend
For the pain of destruction and war without end
And we search through the histories of gallant young men
For a promise that never comes true

Where are the heroes of tales gone by
Whose sagas live on throughout time
How long must we wait for the champions of fate
To come slay the dragons of night

Do you sing for a savior, return of the king
Draw the sword from the stone, and cast off the ring
A dashing young hero in flashing red cape
Come to vanquish the ills of the world

A blade of grass struggling up through the stone
A hardened heart gives way to the love it has known
A hero’s blade forged in a fiery hall
A champion’s flame burns in the hearts of us all.

Do you sing for a savior, return of the king
Draw the sword from the stone, and cast off the ring
A dashing young hero in flashing red cape
Come to vanquish the ills of the world

I sing for a savior, return of the king
Draw the sword from the stone, and cast off the ring
We’re the dashing young heroes in flashing red capes
Come to vanquish the ills of the world
