Super Hero

my fans call me a super hero
saving the world
killing one scumbag at a time
some may say "that's no hero!"
but how many murders can one see?
or druggies getting released on the streets?
I tried to play the good guy
your friendly neighborhood Superman
but the system is broken
so I had to take things into my own hands

the moment when everything changed
I was looking into a case
a man suspected of a series of rapes
when I found him he admitted to that and more
killed at least 10 girls
took everything in me to not snap his neck
brought him to the cops
he was back out in about a month

of course he was a wealthy man
was in the pockets of every right politician
no matter who I talked to
they just came up with excuses
was told to just let it go
but I couldn't, wouldn't
that's when I arrived to Lois dead

after that I enslaved all who questioned me
it was clear
only I could be the true authority
humanity is no better than animals
ones that need disciplined
now all is at peace
all is right
even if the parents are skittish
and the children cry at night
