An iron fist quietly sits
Inside the velvet glove
Take control, untouchable
Just like God above

I can't escape wrapped in red tape
What will become of me?
If I object then I defect
My country 'tis of thee

The White House is calling
Tell them I'll call them back
Just tell them anything
Yeah, get them off my back

The world needs a hero

Not that I would ever lie
But I have no choice
Words I say heard today
Are not mine just my voice

NATO is on line 1
They want to talk to me
Tell them that I'm not in
Tell them that I'm not free

The world needs a hero
The world needs a hero

Phantom rule, the hidden jewel
Who's really in control?
On puppet strings, a nation swings
Undermined by moles

The UN is on hold
Tell them I'll call them back
Yeah, tell them anything
Just get them off my back

The world needs a hero
The world needs a hero

Dave the White House is calling
They want to talk to me
Tell them that I can't be bought
Tell them that I'm not free

The world needs a hero
The world needs a hero

The world needs a hero
The world needs a hero
The world needs a hero

Mustaine, Dave
