HEROES

Aqualungalbumcover

It takes guts

to be a bum

 

It takes balls

to go your own way

 

To check out

of the game

 

Refusing to play

is a monk’s life

 

It is a struggle

to go it alone

 

Cut off from the pack

the crowd the rest

 

Who write you off

who shut you out

 

For taking the risk

that road not taken

 

They despise you

for defining your life

 

For controlling time

and claiming freedom

 

It takes courage to be

a bum a drunk an outcast

 

The group pities you

and shuns you though

 

They’re quietly humbled

and resentfully envious

 

By your choice of

Liberty over comfort

 

It shames their efforts

to help you back

 

Into the fold where

none of them want to be
