Superheroes - The Script



The Experience: That’s how a superhero learns to fly: every day, every hour, turn the pain into power... The Script return to the dream behind Hall of Fame. But this time they focus on the pain instead of on the dream...




Music video: The Script took Superheroes to a poor area of Johannesburg, South Africa, where they filmed their story of a destitute man who picks through the dumps every day. But he's different. He leaves home in a suit, to protect his daughter's sense of dignity. As the Script themselves said, "We spent a few days there and spent a lot of time with the people in the township, because they are our superheroes".


The Meaning of Superheroes: The comparison between Hall of Fame and Superheroes is inevitable. Both are power ballads. Both are motivational. However, that's where the likeness ends. Hall of Fame focuses on the hope - you can be the best - and Superheroes zeroes in on the road to that triumph: pain. The song covers a poor father and daughter in their struggle for dignity and a future. He fights for his dignity as a father, all the while knowing that she constantly suffers their poverty. That their poor isn't his fault - he's fighting for the prophet's dream of a brighter future, fighting against the results of callous uncaring business - they took away the prophet's dream for a profit on the street. But that pain is the forge for a heart of steel - as long as you fight. When you've been fighting for it all your life, you've been struggling to make things right, that’s how a superhero learns to fly. True heroes don't glide to an easy victory. True heroes are the ones who know what pain feels like. That makes them strong... and understanding.


Ask yourself: If you're strong, do you care about the weak? If you're successful, what did you do to deserve it? What will you do to deserve it?

LYRICS:

All the life, she has seen
All the meaner side of me
They took away the prophet's dream
For a profit on the street
Now she’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

All his life, he's been told
He’ll be nothing when he’s old
All the kicks and all the blows
He will never let it show
Cause he’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

All the hurt, all the lies
All the tears that they cry
When the moment is just right
You'll see fire in their eyes
Cause they're stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

She's got a lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's a got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light them up, stand back, watch them explode

She's got a lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's a got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light them up, stand back, watch them explode

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Oh yeah

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Ooh yeah
Woah

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
