about

What started off as a synthetic dance tune all about shaking that ass morphed into an electrifying rally cry for the pursuit of one's dreams against all odd when co author Pascael Arceneaux changed one line in the song and created the title for this body of work.. I stand corrected Pas, Love Is The Hero.

lyrics

the trumpeters of death have come to dine and dance until we're numb
from all the terror, leaders who scare us to killing ourselves safe
explosion rips through finger tips
they're selling the apocalypse on tv lying, children are dying as the levee breaks.

Is this a dream
there are killer machines
up in the sky now what does it mean
go for your guns or go for your dreams
everyone here knows love is the hero of the scene

I've seen the future baby this is good morning
get on up
ain't no looking back now it's on us
the moment has arrived
hear the battle cries and come alive
you could be the hero tonight

we're warriors roaming through the night
guided by the satellite look
blood on the playground
nowhere to play now
my aren't we safe
the resurrection planet earth
comes after we have raped her first
from corporate die-in
who wants to buy in (buy yin)
black gold at stake

Is this a dream
there are killer machines
up in the sky now what does it mean
go for your guns or go for your dreams
everyone here knows love is the hero of the scene

I've seen the future baby this is good morning
get on up
ain't no looking back now it's on us
the moment has arrived
hear the battle cries and come alive
you could be the hero tonight

take a look it's a serial thriller
up in the sky is a killer machine

chorus
It's a war on the world a war on the world
everyone here knows love is the hero of the world

heal the world..help hear the world
killer machines
