Chapter 5: Battle of the Bands

(Max's POV)

Sunday, 10:00 AM

The Battle of the Bands is the biggest competition for bands. Bands from all over the world compete. The winner gets a record deal. My band got a spot in it. It's being held at The Red Dragon this year. Kate's announcing the event.

"Next is Another Knockout. They will be singing their song Hero." Kate announced. We walked onto the stage.

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away

Losing my faith today
Falling off the edge today

I am just a man
Not superhuman
I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
Falling from my faith today
Just a step from the edge

Just another day in the world we live

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've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
My voice will be heard today

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man

I'm not superhuman
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

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
Save me just in time
Save me just in time

Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives
And we're not ready to die

Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero, I've got a hero
Living in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
I will be ready to die

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

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?
I've got a hero

I need a hero
A hero's gonna save me just in time
