Victor Wooten – Hero lyrics

There's a riot going on
And there's hunger in our midst.
Some people can't go on.
Some people call it quits.

When freedom is not the word
You'll find on Earth there's hell.
And you know one man saved the world
And he's in your heart as well.

[Chorus:] Everybody's waiting for the hero, when the hero is in everyone.
Everybody's waiting for the hero, when the hero is in everyone.

A man is sleeping on the street
Because he has no place to live.
A millionaire is eating meat.
How come we're not more sensitive?

And when abundance is for the few
That's where the hunger lies.
Responsibility rests on you.
So keep your head up to the sky.
