lyrics: victims, heroes, rebels, & villains

The villain was evil

he didn’t do as he should

he surprised me- how embarrassing!

he did what I didn’t think he would

The victims were people

who were all basically good

they did everything exactly right

and they did everything they could

the hero was equal

to the challenge of saving her world

she was a superhuman underdog

an idol worshiped by little boys and girls

the rebels were regal

sexy but dignified

no one really knew which side they were on

the mysterious wildcards with passionate eyes

victims

become heroes

then rebels

then villains

and villains that win… can be heroes again

rebels that lose

obviously must be victims

and heroes that fail

must be traitors

or martyrs

or maybe just villains

So, how can those people

believe their rebels are heroes?

their rebels are villains,

so unlike ours

oh, and how can they believe

that their idols are heroes

their idols are just idols

while our idols are gods

oh well, I guess it’s our duty

to kill them for their own good

you know, to save their souls

by taking their land and food

no, I don’t want any backtalk

this is a family, not a democracy

plus, you won’t get to heaven

unless you obey me

victims

become heroes

then rebels

then villains

and villains that win… can be heroes again

rebels that lose

obviously must be villains

and heroes that fail

must be traitors

or martyrs

or maybe just victims

The new villain is evil

he doesn’t do as he should

he surprised me- how embarrassing!

he does what I didn’t think he would

The new victims are people

who are all basically good

they do everything exactly right

and they do everything they could

the new hero is equal

to the challenge of saving her world

she is a superhuman underdog

an idol worshiped by little boys and girls

the new rebels are regal

sexy but dignified

no one really knows which side they are on

the mysterious wildcards with passionate eyes
