Although the song has never been released as a single, it appeared in many movies and video games before The Umbrella Academy used it.

The lyrics you can hear in the last episode of the TV show are the ones below:

This ain’t no place for no hero
This ain’t no place for no better man
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call home

Now, I can’t see where you comin’ from
But I know just what you’re runnin’ from
And what matters ain’t the “Who’s baddest,” but the
Ones who stop you fallin’ from your ladder, ’cause

This ain’t no place for no hero
This ain’t no place for no better man
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call home

The Heavy, Short Change Hero: inside the meaning of the lyrics

Short Change Hero is a song about young criminality. The event that inspired it is a situation that happened to the lead singer’s relatives, who got in trouble with the police. In the lines above, the singer warns all kids of his country: he can only imagine the issues they are experiencing, but playing this game to prove who’s the bad guy doesn’t pay off. What’s most important is to care about people who can support you and adequately develop your life.

In the chorus, “This ain’t no place for no hero” means that, unfortunately, we live in a brutal society, and good guys cannot survive. But that’s the real battle that we have to face.
