This song became the theme song for our upcoming summer youth camp. The theme of the camp was "Heroes: Ordinary People with an Extraordinary Calling" which is based on Hebrews 11 (the heroes of our faith). The song Hero by Superchick has actually two versions. The first version I heard was from Superchick's "Last One Picked" album which is rock and some techno beats mixed with a little bit of orchestral arrangements and starts with a major chord (I think). The second version is what I began to like better which is the Red Pill Mix from Superchick's Regeneration album (which has a lot of remixed tracks from their previous albums). The Red Pill mix has an added rap part and starts out with a minor chord but has more orchestral arrangements. These two versions will be performed at our upcoming youth camp (with a little variation in the Red Pill mix rap), twice as a band performance (one band performance per version) and once as a human video. The lyrics of Hero, Red Pill mix by Superchick is below.

"Hero (Red Pill Mix)" by Superchick

[Verse 1:]
No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him
Cause you want to belong do you go along?
Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong
It's not like you hate him or want him to die
But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
Any kindness from you might have saved his life

Heroes are made when you make a choice

You could be a hero
Heroes do what's right
You could be a hero
You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what's right for what's right for what's right

[Verse 2:]
No one talks to her, she feels so alone
She's in too much pain to survive on her own
The hurt she can't handle overflows to a knife
She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life
Each day she goes on is a day that she is brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way,
Each moment of courage her own life she saves
When she throws the pills out a hero is made

Heroes are made when you make a choice


[Verse 3:]
No one talks to him about how he lives
He thinks that the choices he makes are just his
Doesn't know he's a leader with the way he behaves
And others will follow the choices he's made
He lives on the edge, he's old enough to decide
His brother who wants to be him is just nine
He can do what he wants because it's his right
The choices he makes change a nine year old's life


Little Mikey D. was the one in class who everyday got brutally harassed
This went on for years until he decided that never again would he shed another tear
So he walked through the door, grabbed a 44 out of his father's dresser drawer
And said I can't take life no more
And like that life can be lost

But this ain't even about that
All of us just sat back and watched it happen
Thinkin' it's not my responsibility to solve a problem that isn't about me
This is our problem
This is just one of the daily scenarios which we choose to close our eyes
Instead of doing the right thing

If we make a choice and be the voice for those who won't speak up for themselves
How many lives would be saved, changed, rearranged
Now it's our time to pick a side
So don't keep walkin' by
Not wantin' to intervene
Cause you wanna exist and never be saved
So let's wake up and change the world
Our time is now!

[Chorus] with "Our time is now!"
