The Lyrics

This is a parody of How To Save a Life by the Fray. It is titled How to stop an exploding man. It is about the tv show Heroes and how to stop an exploding man who ends up being Peter Petrelli. In the end his brother Nathan flys him up in the sky.
Step one we save the cheerleader
Cause if we do we'll save the world
She smiles politely back at you
You smile politely right on through
After you save her from Sylar
She goes to TX and you go to NY
Between the lines of fear and hope
And you begin to wonder how to save the world

Where did I go wrong, I will Explode
Somewhere in the middle of Kirby Plaza
And I would do anything to find out
How to stop an exploding man

Tell your bro that you'll explode
He says your crazy, but you know best
Try to make him believe you
Before you explode
Lay down a list of what to do
Try to learn to control your powers
And pray to god you can see him
And Pray to god you can see the invisible man

Where did I go wrong, I will Explode
Somewhere in the middle of Kirby Plaza
And I would do anything to find out
How to stop an exploding man

As your adrenaline begins to rush
Your brother fly’s in
He says you have to calm down
After all the blast is inevitable
He says you have two choices
You blow up New York City
Or he will fly you into the sky
And before you know it your whisked up into the air

Where did I go wrong, I will Explode
Somewhere in the atmosphere
And I have now found out
How to stop an exploding man

I love Heroes and I enjoyed the references, but unfortunately I don't think it works well with the original song. Stick with the idea but maybe try a different song.
