Hero of the Day

lyrics

I keep freezing and I keep dying
and I'm not sure if my compass is lying, but
Here I go again to save the world

I've been beaten
and I've been eaten
But I'm still standing and I'm still breathing, yeah
Here I go again to save the world

I don't get enough respect
The locals and the villagers think I'ms a threat
Never the savior till the end is near
and everybody's happy till the sequel appears

CHORUS:
Life would be so easy if the princess found herself
and the people in the market wouldn't have to ask for help
It's always the same
I'm just the hero of the day

I'm always ready, the one who always saves us
No one ever thanks me, no one's ever gracious
I'm a child of destiny, everybody knows me
Apparently somebody higher up chose me

I'm the chosen one to save the world
Chosen One

I don't get enough respect
And everything I own is only what I collect
I'm starting to think that no one has my back
And everybody's happy till the zombies attack

CHORUS

I am the strongest in all of the land
I have the world in the palm of my hand
All of my dreams have come true
All of the prophecies too

I am the legend from tales of old
I am the one of which stories are told
All of the power that be
Help fulfill my destiny

I don't get enough respect
I'm really getting sick of stuff I have to correct
If I'm still around when all my trials are one
I'm gonna blow a village up just for fun

Life would be so easy if the princess tripped and fell
And the people in the market would learn to get their stuff themselves
It's always the same
They all know my name
It's not just a game

Cuz I am the hero of the day
