The Verve Pipe is an American rock band from East Lansing, Michigan. It was formed in 1992 by Brian and Brad Vander Ark, Brian Stout and Donny Brown. more »

I can't believe that it was good for anyone, to me worth the wait 
I doubt that anybody got their money's worth 
But the attention sure felt great 
With all eyes upon me, some filled with tears, some couldn't see 

It burned like a cancer when the answer did occur to me 
Creep from the cradle, but a hero's what I want to be 
Keep it moving people cause there's nothing more for you to see 
I'm just a jerk, but a hero's what I want to be yeah, oh yeah 

Love me, love me sweet cowardice 
Now that the thrill is mine for the moment 
We really didn't need another suicide 
Or a song explaining why, but it's not dignified 

But I can't seem to kiss it goodbye 
It burned like a cancer... 
Keep it moving people... 
It burned... 

Keep it...
Erase this disaster even faster than you came to see 
A creep from the cradle and a hero driven want to be 
For your abuse, but not intended for internal use 
I'm just a jerk , but a hero's what I want to be
