Whoa who do you believe, whoa do not be deceived

Showered in adulation and praise
The hero of the day
He'll be the one to answer your prayers
As long as he gets paid

The hero is never quite what he seems
He'll rip you right under your nose
He'll be whatever you want him to be
As long as his bank account grows

Whoa who do you believe, whoa do not be deceive

The blind devotion to second-hand gods
When will it all stop
When a cold blooded killer finally appears
On a Wheaties box

The hero is never quite what he seems
He'll rip you right under your nose
He'll be whatever you want him to be
As long as his bank account grows
The hero will tell you what you want to hear
He'll ease your trouble mind
A keen opportunist a slick profiteer
He counts on you being blind

Media blitz off and running
It got this fucker billed as the second coming
Hero of the day man of the hour
Send cash in lieu of flowers

Would you like to meet the man of the hour
This is your hero of the day [2x]

Hero of the day

Whoa hero for the day, whoa hero of the...
Hero for the day
