Lupe Fiasco American Terrorist II

[Verse 1]

Through the fire, smoke, and broken rubble

Walks the secret life, bullet-proof and bulging muscle

Death-defying, highest flying over trouble

Can you please come and help us out our hopeless struggles

Sympathy is wearing off and dying out

In the face of all these enemies and crying out

Losing all this energy from finding out

The world is filled with ills, ever so close to timing out

[Hook]

Where, are those heroes

Where, are those super-heroes

[Verse 2]

Pondering, that super-villain’s got a point

Told the captain on the roof while they was smoking joints

Flicked the ashes down into the street below

Looked up, said he hate the city now, even though

He swore that he’d protect it when he landed

Their perspective’s now changed, all pretty much abandoned

The captain spray cologne around and said he understand it

It’s getting hard to separate the saints from the satanic

[Hook]

[Verse 3]

Last remarks, they did it to themselves

I killed off heaven, now I live in hell

So complicit and they all non-survival

Told them that they biggest rival is inside you

I do possess the power to revive you

But if I did that, I’d just have to fight you

Cause you truly are the hero and the villain

The world stood froze, hearing a truth so chilling

Reporters start filming, somebody shouted, “Kill him!”

He looked back in disgust and flew up to the ceiling

Busted through the roof and kicked over the building

Before it hit the ground, a younger hero flew around

And put it on his shoulders, said you’re naive now

But believe, you’ll believe me when you’re older

Every asteroid you stop and bomb you fly up into space

You ain’t saving them from danger, you’re keeping danger safe

[Hook]
