• Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    Yeah

    Please don't shoot me down
    I love you like a brother
    It's on the news again
    I guess they killed another

    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    To die a hero
    Is all that we know now

    Oh, we all get told to go along
    Oh, we know it's all for show
    We know, we know

    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    To die a hero
    Is all that we know now
    Yeah

    (Ooh, yeah)
    (Ooh, yeah)

    Am I a hero?
    A fallen hero now?
    Hear my sin Lord
    Speak no evil now

    Am I a hero?
    My gun to reload now
    A broken people
    There go a hero now Writer/s: Brian Burton, Dean Cover, Michael Samuel Kiwanuka
