I'm gonna win, trust in me
I've come to save this world
And in the end I'll get the girl!
— Machinae Supremacy, "Hero"
I want a hero, an uncommon want,
When every year and month sends forth a new one,
'Til, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
The age discovers he is not the true one.
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt.
I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.
You all have seen him in the pantomime,
Sent to the Devil somewhat ere his time.
— Lord Byron, "Don Juan"
