The Last Hero

Album: The Last Hero (2016)
  • Can you hear the marching beating of the drums?
    Once again the dogs are out for blood
    Words and accusations, history revised
    The time has gone to tell that you are right

    Oh, how you tried
    I know that you tried to save us

    Save us

    I remember dreaming not so long ago
    The change was gonna come, I still had hope
    How long must I keep waiting, feeling so ignored
    Is anything worth saving anymore?

    I just don't know
    But need you so

    Don't let us fall again
    We can't fight this on our own
    Who'll save us in the end
    Have we lost our last hero?

    Tyrants overtaking intoxicate with lies
    There is no escaping, not this time
    The simple man receiving, defending every crime
    Somehow still believing they are right
    So hypnotized

    Don't let us fall again
    We can't fight this on our own
    Who'll save us in the end
    Have we lost our last hero?

    Tell me, where are the heroes?
    No
    Tell me, where are the heroes?
    No, no
    Have we lost all our heroes?
    No

    How could this be, we couldn't see
    Now we are left here to fight this on our own

    Build them up to tear them down
    What we've done I'm far from proud
    Chew 'em up
    Spit 'em up
    In the end
    Who'll save us now?

    Can you hear the marching, beating of the drums
    Once again the dogs are out for blood
    Words and accusations, history revised
    The time has gone to tell that you are right

    Don't let us fall again
    We can't fight this on our own
    Who'll save us in the end
    Have we lost our last hero?

    Have we reached the end?
    Are we last to know?
    Are we still afraid?
    Nowhere left to go
    No, it's much too late
    There's no hope to see
    There is still a chance left
    For you and me Writer/s: Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, Scott Phillips
