I can take it or leave it and I can make you believe it.
So don’t tell me that you wanna live when your life is in my hands.
Through the haze of confusion you can see the illusion is burning in the sand.

They say you were a hero. They say you were a hero.
It was in your hands and you made your stand.
Thank you and farewell.

I could not have deceived you and I can hardly retrieve you.
Did I ever say that the light of day would shine again on you?
Now you’ll always be, in loving memory, the man that no one knew.

They say you were a hero. They say you were a hero.
How can you swallow your pride when you’ve got nowhere to hide?
You stand for what is right.

They say you were a hero. They say you were a hero.
It was in your hands and you made no stand.
Thank you and good night.
