Lyrics: “Do you want my secret?”

You are a hero in your own mind.
I know the truth that you ache to find.
What you need is what I already got.
So, do you want my secret?

You started free and easy, then things got complicated. You were trained what to fear, even if that meant pretending. So, you were trained what to fake, which could require defending. Your sincerity is terror and your faith hides your panic.

You got a pretense to sell… called how you are and should be. Your actions fit with your role, from your gestures to wardrobe. It’s all a perfect production, your life’s feature presentation. But anyone who sees through it… is an annoying danger.
You must withdraw from the threat… to your ego’s false contempt. I mean if everything you’ve hated was fake, you’d feel regret. And there is nothing that you want less than shame, so just go numb. Addiction to tradition is, um, your entire religion.
You are a hero in your own mind.
I know the truth that you ache to find.
What you need is what I already got.
So, do you want my secret?

In your mind, you’re a hero bravely fighting with villains. You protect the victims… even if you have to kill ’em, so they don’t go to hell… and don’t keep you out of heaven. You’ve got a lot of good reasons to justify your actions.
No one understands you (because you’re just such a rebel). And you’re such a rebel when you insist you’re so different. What’s so different about you is that all the rest are fake, while you’re the holy child savior chosen by the saints.
Which saints? Well, whichever ones you say. If they play to your ego, then to them you pray. Your saints are the best, which I know because you told me… right before you lit the fire to burn the bridges to punish the witches.
You are a hero in your own mind, but aren’t we all?
I know the truth that you ache to find, or that you live to avoid.
What you need is what I already got, or maybe you’ve kept something I’ve dropped.

So, do you want my secret? First, how can you show me you’d keep it?
