lyrics

When I was a child
I would dream
Of slaying monsters
and evil things
I’d be the hero
the kingdom needs
Saving the princess,
Her knight shining

Now that I’m grown,
It’s become clear
I’m not the hero
I once held dear
Look down at my hands, they’re not clean
That’s when
I realize
The monster is me

We all want to be
The hero of our own story
But what we fail to see
Is we can be the villain
Just as easily

Yeah, we all want to be
The hero of our own story
But what we fail to see
Is we can be the villain

Just you wait and see
