RMJ - Your favourite anti-hero
Neighbours shout his name at the paperstand: weirdo.
Someone needs to take a stand so here goes:
For rogues working late nights down at Cafe nero's!
So he went a built a placard,
Changed the faces on a pack of cards on the Packard.
Now he's searching for some level ground
To tell 'em what it's like for masked rebels; it's terrible now.
At speakers corner, looking out at the crowd
A tramp looking like wolverine on the prowl
He felt a dry cough
Went home got depressed and ordered a new light-box.
On these days he cuts a tragic figure
Buys a pack of cigarretes, some hash, a pack of stickers.
It's real tough having these super-powers
You gotta wear the super-suit for hours,
Just to get noticed.
Penniless only eating mustard and hovis.
Yeah you could bust a new flow quick
But caught on their smartphones suckers lose focus
Whack the beat up
Too much acid;acid reflux
Fuck, shit keeps fluxing
The crux of the matter - matter keeps combusting
But what the fucks the matter? all this over luncheon
The double headed axe of creation and destruction.

The light keeps fading
Tryna fight the good-fight the fight scene's changing.
I wanna escape
But too many heroes are hanging up their cape

Who represents faded spandex,
So many downloads who's gon pay the damn check.
Damn heck, it's hard to get ham speck or jam spread
Go to gran's just to have brek.
But it comes at a price?
A real inquisition: "What are you doing with your life?"
Um Practising my suplex
Rattling the cabinets in panic, having loose sex...
Stacking up a bootleg
That's a lie. Really itching scratching up my 2 veg,
Just fucking about - I mean knuckling down
stuck in the house.
Crust on the gown. Trouble in the session,
The hairline's receding, there's a double dip recession.
Looking in the puddle, a reflection
Come here. Let's you and me just cuddle for a second.
Yeah, we can still take out crooks
He Make out with the girl and the goods.
Watching Nat G he sees the spear wobble
Throttled by fear the hunter near gobbled
Toggling remote control the vision near boggles
Blinded by despair he has to wear the beer goggles
To help him see through the day
Like the x ray glasses that peer trough the brain
cackle of the Jekyll, hear it in the drain
The eye of Sauron appearing in the flame of his lighter
Lighter by a couple pounds
Knuckles brown chuckles as he hustles for a round
A drink by the speaker
The Reaper gets closer by the inch and the meter

The light keeps fading
Tryna fight the good-fight the fight scene's changing.
I wanna escape
But too many heroes are hanging up their cape
