Maximo park - The hero

Five brothers dream of different lives
They traveled north until the snow arrived
But how on earth do you begin
When you know you can't win?

They say that money doesn't change a thing
But you can bet that they're not suffering
When you're on the lowest rung
You're gonna get stung (you're gonna get stung)

The hero didn't do exactly what I wanted him to do
Maybe that's why the story rings true

The great migration to end suffering
It would be easier to say nothing
But when you flee the empty nest
You leave the land you know best

He wore a crisp, white shirt just for a day
To woo a lover on a getaway
But he couldn't hide his dirty neck
From the toil and the sweat (from the toil and the sweat)


The hero didn't do exactly what I wanted him to do
Maybe that's why the story rings true

Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Compromise is not a sin, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it

The hero didn't do exactly what I wanted him to do
Maybe that's why the story rings true

The hero didn't do exactly what I wanted him to do
Though maybe that's why the story rings true

Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Compromise is not a sin, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
Compromise is not a sin, but you better not make a habit of it
Sometimes you have to give in, but you better not make a habit of it
