I'm just a step away

I'm so close.

I'm just a breath away

Just a little farther.

Losing my faith today

I think I can make it… Please, Dad, help me.

Falling off the edge today

I am just a man

I'm only a kid, Dad. Help.

Not superhuman

I may be a demigod, but I'm still human.

I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

No other kid's uncles try to kill them. But, of course, I end up with the callous uncles. I know Hades sent these monsters after me. I know Poseidon caused the flooding of our hideout in Florida.

"Go ahead without me!" I screamed at Luke, Annabeth, and Grover. All four of us can't make it.

It's just another war
Just another family torn

Even if it's a dysfunctional family, it's my family.

"No! Thalia!" Annabeth cried.

"Thalia, we can't let you do this," Luke said, slaying yet another monster.

"You have to," I looked him straight in the eye. "Just send me help."

"She's right," Grover sighed.

"Come on," Luke consented, picking up Thalia.

"No! NO! THALIA!"

Falling from my faith today

I used to have faith that my dad, Zeus, helped me. But, if he really had helped me, then I wouldn't be standing here, against dozens of monsters.

Just a step from the edge

I'm so close. Just a few steps from living or dying.

Just another day in the world we live

And the scary part is that this happens all of the time. It's just a day in the life of a demigod. Hades and Poseidon aren't about to let me live. I'm tired of running.

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life

I need someone to help me. Someone to swoop in and save my life. I'm so close to help. Knowing my luck, I'm standing just a few yards from help, but it won't come.

A hero will save me just in time

I just have to hold out a little longer. Help will come.

I've gotta fight today

I've always been good with my spear. Let's hope it'll be enough.

To live another day

It's the only way I will live.

Speaking my mind today

I cursed. "Dad, if you care about me at all, help me!"

My voice will be heard today

Whether it be cries of pain or singing halleluiah that I'm still alive, my voice WILL be heard today.

I've gotta make a stand

My last stand. I knew that, deep down. But I'll keep fighting.

But I am just a man
I'm not superhuman

"I'M ONLY HUMAN," I cried. My will is weakening.

My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn
My voice will be heard today
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

One group will be exterminated. Me or them. It'll be them.

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero, just in time

Just in time… hopefully not too late.

Save me just in time
Save me just in time

Who's gonna fight for what's right?

Who's gonna help me?

Who's gonna help us survive?

I won't survive without help.

We're in the fight of our lives

The fight that will end my life or prove it.

And we're not ready to die

I don't want to die.

Who's gonna fight for the weak?

I may not be weak, but… I'm scared.

Who's gonna make 'em believe?

I want to believe that I'll survive, but, deep down, I know I can't.

I've got a hero, I've got a hero
Living in me

Demigods are also known as heroes. I know that. But I can't do this. I can't be a hero for myself.

I'm gonna fight for what's right

I know what's right. And this isn't it. It's so wrong that a girl should have to run from demons sent by her own uncle.

Today I'm speaking my mind

"Why?" I grunted, disintegrating yet another. "Why does this have to be me?"

And if it kills me tonight

Oh gods… why do I have the feeling that I'm as good as dead already?

I will be ready to die

I hope I can be brave enough to do this.

A hero's not afraid to give his life

A true hero.

A hero's gonna save me just in time

No.

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?

Whatever god is listening, take care of Annabeth, Luke, and Grover. They deserve to live.

I've got a hero

I need a hero

I need a hero.

A hero's gonna save me just in time

No. A hero is not going to save me. A monster stabbed me in the stomach. "Goodbye, cruel world," I managed to grunt. And the life faded from me.


I don't own Hero, Skillet does, or any of the characters. I wrote this a while back, and felt bad about not doing anything for Christmas, so here it is! Merry (however late) Christmas!
