lyrics

mmm new moon new moon / mmm full moon full moon
mmm blue moon blood moon / super moon soon soon
mmm new moon new moon / mmm full moon full moon
mmm blue moon blood moon / super moon soon soon
mmm new moon new moon / mmm full moon full moon
mmm blue moon blood moon / super moon soon soon

Lookin at folks on the cta
I think of my comrade passed away
One thing he'd always say: “We're gonna win”

And sometimes i feel selfish to
be spending so much time making music
wonderin just how much it’s even doin

And some days I’d bet we’ll get free soon
and others I guess the world is doomed
tempted to think there’s nothing I can do

But that would dishonor Nelson's name
and all of the warriors who came
before me -- I think I know what they’d say:

Be your own hero
Be your own hero
Be your own hero
or there ain't gonna be no more heroes

Get ready to see a rock star now
Get ready to feel my full-blown power
Get ready to hear my spirit shout to the moon

I call upon Marley and Seeger
I call upon Che and Sojourner
I call upon all the ancestors who grew me

I know that our freedom takes its time
I know many people gave their lives
I know many more will have to die too soon

I need to believe there's something true
I need to believe I'm touching you
I need to believe there's love in every human

Be your own hero
Be your own hero
Be your own hero
or there ain't gonna be no more heroes

Go out there in the world open eyed!
You got something to offer humankind
Show us what you look like with no more fear
Do you know what's the reason you are here?

Be your own hero
Be your own hero
Be your own hero
or there ain't gonna be
no more heroes
