I miss the days my mind would just rest quiet
My imagination hadn’t turned on me yet

I used to let my words wax poetic

But it melted a puddle at my feet now
It is a calcifying crime, it’s tragic
I’ve turned to petrified past life baggage
I want to disappear and just start over
So here we are

And I’ll breathe again

'Cause I have sent for a warrior

From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

I’ve lost a grip on where I started from

I wish I’d thought ahead and left a few crumbs
I’m on the hunt for who I’ve not yet become
But I’d settle for little equilibriumThere is a war inside my heart gone silent
Both sides dissatisfied and somewhat violent
The issue I have now begun to see

I am the only lonely casualty

This is not the end though

'Cause I have sent for a warrior

From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

'Cause I have sent for a warrior

From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

This is my darkest hour

A long road has lead me out here

But I only need turn around to face the light
And decide flight or fight

'Cause I have sent for a warrior

From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please

'Cause I have sent for a warrior

From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules
