Poetry Offering from Abracad

   I don't want to be a hero any more
   Don't want to sing about another pointless war
   Even though I'm sick of trying
   My heart, it lies broke and crying
   Don't wanna be a hero any more.

   I don't want to be a liar any more
   Don't want to settle someone else's score
   Lonely feelings in the night
   Told me it was wrong to fight
   Don't wanna be a liar any more.

   Don't want to be a preacher any more
   Don't want my comfort from no scabby whore
   Gave my life to truth unspoken
   Only left my dreams unbroken
   Don't wanna be a preacher any more.
