Dancing on the borderline

Hello, although I'm a static Zero.
I'm fighting all your wars,
While you dwell in your hypocrisy
You think the world is fine,
When all the evil's over lined
Before you wake up this morning

Well, hello there, you're the local superhero?
Your stronghold's but a paper bag,
We suffer for your promised land
Excuse is really thin,
Hide your revealed Achilles' heel
Before a new brave morning

All you little superheroes,
Fall short without all them zeroes
A pie in the sky is your brave new world,

And so powerless are thy miracles

Ones, they walk before the rows of O's,
And soon it dawns on them, how to make billions

Dream up a world, oh how powerless are thy miracles
I'm so tired to fight you
The Sun is, oh, so desperate to set tonight,
Ashamed to light a lie

All you little superheroes,
Fall short without all them zeroes
The pie in the sky's your brave new world,

Your homestead's not yours much longer

These people win elections, empowered by you!
These wars are never ending, acceptance just mind-bending

It's a conspiracy and as always the end is here
We were born that day
This destiny wrote us a life we now waste away
Waste it away, do it today

My life is fine, so why would I care
Because it's not my ***, per se, on the line.

All you little superheroes

Dancing on the borderline
4-3-2-1-do it today!
