​Another Hero

This song is by Poison Girls and appears on the album Chappaquiddick Bridge (1980).

There's no escape from barren weather

The cold war and the upturned collar

Our agents are all under cove

There are no treaties to deliver

The red man trapped in his enclosure

The black man aiming from his shoulder

The white man dying of exposure

And children everywhere grow older

The Hollywood avengers

Are drunk and disqualified

Missionaries on morphine

Lie giggling and paralyzed

On and on the bullet glides

To find its mark between the eyes

It finds its mark

Another hero bites the dust

There are no wise guys to save us

Against the merciless crusaders

There's nowhere safe to hide from raiders

Who capture hostages for traders

The red man trapped in his enclosure

The black man aiming from his shoulder

The white man dying of exposure

While women everywhere grow bolder

Kissinger and Nixon

Are hiding in the abattoirs

Maggie Thatcher's patching up

Her makeup in the broken glass

The bloody iron shows

As she drives past in her armoured car

As she drives past

Another hero bites the dust

The hit men in their chosen places

Fix their sites and hide their faces

Slip through the crowd in narrow spaces

Slip through the night and leave no traces

The red man trapped in his enclosure

The black man aiming from his shoulder

The white man dying of exposure

As dead men everywhere grow colder

The cowboys and the Kennedys

Are grabbing what there is to sell

The president's advisers

Advise us all to go to hell

And those who deal in weapons

Are rumoured to be doing well.

The rumour goes

Another hero bites the dust

There are no heroes fit to rule

They're all half saint, half bloody fool
