Kill Your Heroes

This is an anthem for the weirdos
like me — the wild and free
unabashedly loving what they see
in the strange terrain
of their crowded, fantastic brain.
Let the world squawk their warnings
kill your heroes
keep your darlings

Make it a dance, avoiding their arrows
and propaganda’s stomping feet
follow the odd rhythm of your own heartbeat
that drummer of conductive tissue
lives to play; will never betray you
belt the feral song of your calling
honey, kill your heroes
keep your darlings

The system loves an innocent hero
someone they can slither up behind
and whisper lies into their empty mind
we need the witty, the willful, the wise
Rebel! Take to the skies!
A punk rock flock of starlings.
Kill the fucking heroes.
Keep the darlings.

follow wormwood for periodic weird.
or just have another bite…
