"Superman (by Lex Luthor)"

(to the tune of "Superman" by Five For Fighting; lyrics © 2012-2013 Eben Brooks)

I can't stand that guy
Is that hard to conceive?
He's just here to fly
In the face of what we believe
He's more than a man; he's almost a god
He says he's here for peace; what are the odds?
And it's so easy to hate him

An accident of birth
A father's fateful plan
A baby sent to Earth
Grows into a Superman
You may think he's blessed, but I think he's a curse
And if you rely on him, you'll make it worse
You may think I jest, but your bubble has burst
Why do you think he'll put humans first?
And it's so easy to hate him

Up, up and away from my signet ring
It's Kryptonite!
No, you won't stop me with your might
I'll show everyone; you wait and see

[this song is as yet unfinished]

-------

Whadaya think? Worth pursuing?

EDIT 9:30: It's finished!

I can't stand that guy
Is that so hard to see?
Men weren't meant to rise
Against the force of gravity
I may be a genius and a billionaire too
But when you get right down to it, I'm just like you
Only a man, but what kind would I be
If I relied on gods to fight for me?
To fight for me, to fight for me
To fight for me, to fight for me

I'm only a man, but what kind would I be?
I'm only a man, what the hell is he?
I'm only a man, and he's not fighting for me
And it's so easy, ooh ooh ooh

It's so easy
To hate

Me
