The Lyrics

What is a hero to do when the world is saved? When all evil is gone? When the petty thieves have all realised it's a kind of a dick move to steal loose change?
There's no more villainous people in the world
Either they have been slain or their hearts made a turn
Well, buddy, I've caused both of those paths, was hard work
First show empathy, if none, they'll hurt (oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I was the team leader, but now I'm not (now I'm not)
I've lost the higher callin' to save the lot of you, now I don't know

There's no more adrenaline movin' through my veins
Zero monsters who want to eat my brains
Turned down the reward 'cause I despise the cliché
Of promised marriage, there's no real love that way

But now I see once I've killed the evil king
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
No werewolves to trick by throwin' silver sticks
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
The world's got nought for me, wanna be
Of some kind of a use
But nobody here knows, they just show me the door
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha)

Heard of a few guys who might just share
How they've all dealt with peace without goin' spare
Become a bus'ness type dude? Can't go there
I can't do maths shit, got no wares
Cleric's a church leader? Not good with gods (sorry, gods)
The bard's an entertainer? I've got no shot at that, my horn skills blow

Even the rogue's got a gig with upgradin' safes
What's there for me? My skillset isn't great
No-one needs reformin' in this new golden age
Would just be overkill to be a guard, mate

All I can see is contentment, really stings
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
No dragons to rip in two then take their shit
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
The realm is all at peace, sod-all need
For a big, violent brute
Resurrected their hope but none for me in store
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha)
This blows

Ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha
Just don't know what I should do (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
I'm wanderin' (got-got-got-got no purpose)
Yeah, feelin' lost (got-got-got-got no p-purp-p-pose) (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)

No path for me, can't make tales for bards to sing
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
No despots to kick in their vuln'rable bits
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
No-one to follow me just to see
What, with swords, I can do
Exhibition-type show? I'm too strong for that floor
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
Can't set to sea, trade routes all up in that thing
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
No ransom note slips to start a rescue trip
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)
Ev'ryone's all friendly, all agree
That's what my aim was, true
But now it's here, I know I've no place here, so bored
I've got no purpose (ah, ah, ah-ah-ah-ha)

"But there's always been a war! That's like saying there's no more blue or-or the weather's stopped!"
