Fifteen long years On a losing streak And a lot of bodies unburied And there comes a time When you cannot turn the other cheek You have got to ride the ferry Past the battered old bodies Of dead dead dreamers Past the tethered and fettered and Desk bound schemers The punks and the drunks and the Bad guitar players and the dewy eyed Teenage dragon slayers You come to this place Where you can say I Just want to work with you As we do the things that we know We have to do Ever hopeful and ever blue we Do the things that we know we have to do And though we all know deep down in our hearts That someday this will all fall apart For right now let's just be heroes The telegraph man Took a break today he Pulled out all the wires He looked out the window at the Rainy rainy day and he Wondered about the future of fire As he leaned back in his chair With a long cold fishy eyed stare He looked like December until he Remembered The day he'd said I Just want to work with you As we do the tings that we Know we have to do ever Hopeful and ever Blue we do the things the things that we know we Have to do Yeah we both know deep down in our hearts Someday this will all fall apart For right now let's just be heroes
