The Lyrics

Superheroes deal with, to put it bluntly, a lot of shit. Too much, one might say. So why don't they, you know, see someone about it?
Saving the day from all kinds of hell
Hurts deep down in ways you can't tell
Ow, they have problems but no-one can listen
Sidekicks aren't skilled mental physicians

Punch foes all day long, little to no reprieve (ah-ah-ah-ah)
That can cause some issues anybody can see (ah-ah-ah-ah)
So much on the brain, surprised they all don't freak (ah-ah-ah-ah)

Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
That's a thing that needs to exist now, please
Panic, panic, panic, panic (oh)
Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
On a couch, lay low before you blow
Just do it, do it, do it, do it (oh)

Ancient monsters, hidden Nazi schemes
No shit supers get PTSD
It's never that well handled, all of this mental pain
Since bad guys get marked as "insane"

Can't bottle it up, 'cause that's far from healthy (ah-ah-ah-ah)
And you know what happens when that mess gets released (ah-ah-ah-ah)?
All that angst and pain breaks up the strongest team (ah-ah-ah-ah)
Oh-ooh-whoa (oh)

Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
One-liners hide deep insecurities
Panic, panic, panic, panic (oh)
Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
Peaceful place to go to just unload
Just do it, do it, do it (oh)

Avengers to Super Friends
Ev'ry hero gets depressed
Or wonder what they keep fighting for
Can't just punch things 'til that's fixed
Well, you could, it's not legit
It's a mental band-aid, nothing more, oh-oh-ow!

Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
Have 'em take a seat, let 'em spill the beans
Panic, panic, panic, panic (oh)
Hero therapy, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
The longer they don't, the worse they'll blow
Just do it, do it (yeah), do it, do it (oh)

Seriously, I'm pretty sure the only times I've seen psychiatrists in superhero fiction either have them as the villain or failing to rehabilitate the villain. It's a little messed up.
