No S on My Chest

When the world's in trouble and the shit hits the fan    
I'd rather be Clark Kent than Superman
I work hard and I give it my best †  
But I ain't walking around with no S on my chest †  
I may have become more than a little bit jaded †
But I always thought Superman was highly overrated †  
It's easy to go through life with good looks and super powers †  
Save the day, then fly in the sky for hours †  
Clark Kent has to go to work just like me †
And be what his boss wants †or at least pretend to be †  
Hiding behind a simple set of glasses †  
We fight through life like we're maneuvering through molasses †  
Yes, Superman does it all with incredible ease †  
Saving the day then flying off in the breeze
He never has to clean up the mess he leaves behind †  
That's left to me and the Clark Kent kind †  
Chorus †
And just like Clark, I know I'm stronger than people know †  
They only see the part of me that I'm willing to show †  
And just like Clark, I pretend it doesn't matter †  
As I watch the Perry Whites getting fatter and fatter †  
Yes Clark Kent is my hero †  
Clark Kent is me †  
Cause... †

Everyone wants to be Superman, but we're all closer to their alter egos.
