JOE THE HERO
[Music:  "Soap Star Joe", Liz Phair]

He's just a hero in a long line of heroes
Looking for something attractive to save
They say he died as a kid with his parents
But he just left town and amended his name

He's just a hero in a long line of heroes
Looking for some lonely racetrack to grace
They say he carries a head full of shrapnel
Think about your own head and the way his head aches

He's just a hero in a long line of heroes
Looking for criminals to make them pay
They say he's crazy in his quest for vengeance
Make him an offer just to see what he'll say

Check out the dashboard lights
Glowing all green and white
He wears a dark Birdstyle
He wears his bluejeans tight

He's just a hero in a long line of heroes
Looking for something to salvage his soul
They say he's dying, but he won't believe it
And he won't give up until he's taken his toll

Check out the auburn hair
Check out the deadly gaze
Check out Joe Asakura
You're looking at him, babe
