Single release from the Latin Quarter album "Ocean Head". - The song "Even Superman is dead" was inspired first of all by the fact that DC Comics did kill off Superman in one of their comic strips. (Though after mass complaints, they brought him back to life.) But in feeling, the song is about any hero (Marx, Lennon, Obama....) none of whom seem to carry any real impact or inspiration any more.
But of course, there is still money to be made (still bucks to be made out of the rubble where he bled/Take his cape and cut it into squares/ And sell it long to uncertain people to show that someone cares.)
The lyric was written by Mike Jones, music by Steve Skaith.
