lyrics

My jacket buttoned at the neck is a cape to lift myself
With one leap over tall buildings
With great unease and no real stealth
But what I may lack in delivery, I make up in discontent
I may be soft but let me off for good intent.

A man of steel would bruise your feelings
A man of feelings will be true
My super powerful x-ray vision will lead me to the core of you
But wear the Kryptonite around your neck
If my gestures are in vain
I'd sooner wait till later than be sent away.

Then I'll come through the skies
Lasers shooting from my eyes
All the bad guys will decide
To run and hide, run and hide from me
Racing through the skies
Lasers shooting from my eyes
All the bad guys will decide
To run and hide, run and hide.

My jacket buttoned front and back
Gives my movements due restraint
If I cannot move my arms I know I cannot do you pain
For what I may lack in my sanity, I make up in my madness
I may be sad but I would never bring you sadness.

A man of steel would bruise your feelings
A man of feelings will be true
My super powerful x-ray vision will lead me to the core of you
But wear the Kryptonite around your neck
If my gestures are in vain
I'd sooner wait till later than be sent away.

Then I'll come through the skies
Lasers shooting from my eyes
All the bad guys will decide
To run and hide, run and hide from me
Racing through the skies
Lasers shooting from my eyes
All the bad guys will decide
To run and hide, run and hide
Run and hide.
