Lord Knows, We Need a Break Now and Again



all the heroes vanished
into the hills that night
crawling with the shadows
until the break of light
folks in town all wondered
what, oh what to do
then they ate their breakfast
and went off to the zoo

goodbye, you motherfuckin' heroes
lord knows, we need a break now and again
we know you're brave and true
good luck in all you do
we'll be sure to notify your next of kin

no one called the police
to try and track them down
no one formed a posse
at least not in that town
they'll live on in legends
the townspeople did say
heck, they only just went missing
and that was yesterday

goodbye, you motherfuckin' heroes
lord knows, we need a break now and again
we know you're brave and true
good luck in all you do
we'll be sure to notify your next of kin

the heroes ate their sandwiches
and drank their sweet ice tea
then they took their telescope
to see what they could see
no one was a coming
to see about their fate
it made them kinda sorry
they didn't feel that great

goodbye, you motherfuckin' heroes
lord knows, we need a break now and again
we know you're brave and true
good luck in all you do
we'll be sure to notify your next of kin

but wait, out in the distance
a cloud of dust arose
a rider from the city
came to find those dear heroes
come back, you rugged men
in five years or in ten
but take your time, we need a break
as you most surely know

goodbye, you motherfuckin' heroes
lord knows, we need a break now and again
we know you're brave and true
good luck in all you do
we'll be sure to notify your next of kin

++++
