A love letter to our heroes, both celebrated and little known. To the elders, the teachers, the mentors, the soldiers--and more--who gave us their dreams, and sometimes their lives, so we could have ours.



Words and Music by Faith Vicknair

How can you break a statued soul?
Just erase it from the Earth?
I can’t stand to see you weakened
By a pain you don't deserve

And how can life leave you broken and defeated,
But so exalted up above?

Superheroes last forever,
Far away as they may be
You put my soul together
And now the world has set you free
But, I can hardly breathe
The question tortures me
How can you kill a superhero?

Your story's written on my heart
Oh I know it word for word
Your love’s what saved me from myself
The gentle voice I always heard

And how can life leave you broken and defeated
But so exalted up above?


There's a statue of you
Painted on my soul
You'll remain there forever
On that I give my word
You were what saved me
You were what made me

Superheroes last forever,
Now you’re far away from me
You put my soul together
And now the world has set you free
