lyrics

Prime Time Hero

With the sidewalk kids and a broken fridge
Outside on the lawn
And I’m sittin’ clean with a TV screen
And I’m tryin’ to get it on
The corner lamp projects the stamp
That’s splattered on the street
And I try to guess but I must confess
I’m just starin’ down at my feet

And I stand single file and I try to make a name for myself
But knowing all the while that the guise must be bad for my health

I’m tired of being seen as some sort of criminal
The writing on the street signs seems to be subliminal
Can’t seem to get myself excited for some minimal wealth

There’s prominent men who like to pretend
They’re playin’ politics
But it does appear to me I fear
They’re all just lookin’ out for a fix
While toothless grins denounce the sins
That keep us entertained
You gots to laugh on the behalf
Of the mentally insane

And I stand single file and I try to make a name for myself
But knowing all the while that the guise must be bad for my health

I’m tired of being seen as some sort of criminal
The writing on the street signs seems to be subliminal
Can’t seem to get myself excited for some minimal wealth

You gotta get down to the blood pumpin’ heart of it
They try to suck you in from the very first start of it
And I ain’t gonna be just a part of their show

Ain’t gonna be no prime time hero
Ain’t gonna be no prime time hero
No I ain’t gonna be no prime time hero
Ain’t gonna be just a part of their show
