Description
Short Song Description:
While looking for an answer, the song ends up providing one for all of us.
Long Song Description:
After hearing a Big & Rich song about shutting down Detroit, it seemed that the blame was not the answer, but that we all need a super hero to lead us in the right direction.
Story Behind the Song:
We seem to always have needed a superhero, especially since this country has been taken over by career politicians who line their pockets.

Lyrics
Make my morning coffee, skip the early news,
Start the day looking for a way to lighten up the mood.
It's gonna take a miracle, a certain special breed,
A living breathing hero, someone we can believe,
And I need to believe

(chorus)
Where is Superman when we need him?
Where is the guy who will fight for truth and humanity?
I thought that he'd be here to lend a helping hand,
Damn tired of standing 'round and asking, "Where is Superman?"

Having superpowers isn't all that rare,
You don't have to leap tall buildings to show how much you care.
It's the little things that add up, make impossible come true,
If things are gonna get better, it's up to me and you,
Watcha gonna do?

(chorus)
Where is Superman when we need him?
Where is the guy who will fight for truth and humanity?
I thought that he'd be here to lend a helping hand,
Damn tired of standing 'round and asking, "Where is Superman?"

(bridge)
Can't be on Krypton, could be Paree or Rome,
Don't he realize we need him here at home?

(chorus)
Where is Superman when we need him?
Where is the guy who will fight for truth and humanity?
I thought that he'd be here to lend a helping hand,
Damn tired of standing 'round and asking,
Where is Superman when we need him?
Where is the guy who will fight for truth and humanity?
I guess it's up to us to lend a helping hand,
I'm done standing 'round and asking, "Where is Superman?"
Where is Superman?
That man of steel--oh is he real?
