That guy, you see him in the movies
You see him on T.V.
Where on earth did they find that guy?
He doesn't  live in my street.
This super-charged hell for leather hero no one can kill.
.
The guys we got are mostly hoods.
The real live hero is the man working eight to five 
Toiling for the family.
You sure as heck won’t find him in the movies or on T.V.
Because in real life you can kill that guy.
Hard work never killed anyboby
 
That guy is dying today, slowly, as the work dries up.
He’s homeless, on the streets him and his family.
Banker man put him there.
Government man ain’t helping the hero to survive.
As I said you can kill that guy, making him ask for a handout.
Nobody’s about to help the hero survive. 

He's not a banker man nor goverment man.
Nope just an ordinary guy doing his best to survive.
He keeps on trying, but he's dying anyway.
