Liner Notes: 

This song is for Miles Morales ♥

Lyrics: 

Ent doing this for the thrills
Doing it ‘cos I can
Ent doing this ‘cos I have to
Except I am

Better heroes have dropped before me
Hope I’m enough
Get wise to the violence
Get up, get up, get up, get up

Polite, all smiles
I’m the luckiest bastard you’ll find for miles

And I’ll take the winning side

I’m the cool comfort of cloud cover
Rolling through the dark
Ziplining in between moonlight,
maybe leave a mark

It would eat me from the inside if
I didn’t help when I could
What do I want? What do I want?
I want to be good

In voices and in lies
I’m some kid in a too-big disguise

Aligned with the better side

And I’ll take the winning side

It’s not us against them
It’s just saving the day
Against apathy, and misery
It’s making sure that everyone’s okay

I’ll be polite, all smiles
I’m the luckiest bastard you’ll find for miles

And I’ll take the winning side

And I’ll take the winning side

And I’ll take the winning side.

Ziplining in between moonlight,
maybe leave a mark

My only knowledge of Miles is from the recent movie, which I loved and really hope they continue making movies in that universe.
Was delighted to see that this song was about him.
I like the things you write about and the way you write about them.
I feel this could make people who don't know who Miles is like him regardless.
Was stopping my typing at work so I could hear your vocals.
