Everyone's Hero

about

We’ve been told that there are two types of people: leaders, and followers. Artist JClay deconstructs this concept, pointing out how the perception of leadership has changed in his single ‘Everyone’s Hero’. Producer Donnie Katana gives JClay a fast, synth-filled beat for him to spit on, and the result is an eye-opening track that changes common perceptions. In its hook, JClay trivializes the modern perspective of ‘leaders’, a term that in his eyes has become synonymous with a ‘hero’.

With this song, however, he is here to tell people that this is not the case. Leaders are there to show you the qualities and actions you need to have in order to be a better you. However, they are certainly not here to erase all of your problems. With this track, artist JClay hopes to make listeners realize that leaders should be an example. Only through self-reliant strength can we truly help ourselves. Everyone’s hero is everyone. Some of them just don’t know it yet.

lyrics

Ay
Ay
Ay
Yeah

I could play you
But do you really want to be played
Yeah
I could save you
But would you want this version to be saved
Yeah
I could play you
But do you really want to be played
Yeah
I could save you
But would you want this version to be saved
Yeah yeah yeah

I am not the leader that you're lookin for
You are not a fish either, what you hooking for
You say you bout your bread, that's why you stuck needin' for
Still hiding when you scared, then what you seekin' for
Everything's a battle when you living in yo shadow
See the light runs deep when you shallow, ay
Quick to bang your gavel and sit cursing at the gravel
You just wanna be heard
Word, you not cattle, ay
They say you groom what you consume
So stop eating all these mistreats
You're wrong about what's strong
Being dazed makes you this weak
Peace don't need to speak, ay
Joy don't avoid, yeah
The bleak will need to weep
And the annoyed gets destroyed, yeah
Don't be so impatient you deface what you are facing
Now reflections are deflections so you reach for fake sensations
Cuz they seem to take the pain over
But you heart they paint over
Now you think it's dark
I'm just here to say it ain't over

I could play you
But do you really want to be played
Yeah
I could save you
But would you want this version to be saved
Yeah
I could play you
But do you really want to be played
Yeah
I could save you
But would you want this version to be saved
Yeah yeah yeah

Would you wanna be saved in your littleness
Frozen in time, bitterness
Or should I teach you all the virtues of being the gentlest
No matter what someone brings
You would see the simplest
Sparks of joy
A box of toys
Your hearts deployed
Applaud the God, you lost His Voice
But now you found
In every choice
Resound rejoice
Reshape the noise
Lift every voice
Sing of things
That clean not bring
What seems not be washable
Obstacles sink
And things sync up
Your thinking, what
It fades when knowledge is raised
Roses are red, and ultraviolet's, rays
That you can place inside your face
And face the dark
What dark, yezzir
It's all dissolved
From your response
Once starts will never part
It's of the whole
Behold the hole is filled
The joy you feel
You know it's real
I'm posed to chill
Like I'm too Chi to be this Ill
I be this healed
Version
I'm urging you to still
Release this burden
By being still
I feel you
I will do
What is willed
Which is our innocence
In a sense it's
Oh where the beat go
Let me end these sentences
