Everybody’s better than I am
I think everybody's better than me
everybody's swell I guess
they're doing well some more or less
everybody's better than I am I think
you know, to be king you don’t need a castle
to row, back to shore can sure be a hassle
everybody's acting like I don't matter
everybody’s into the act
too many of them to avoid
it could be that I’m paranoid
I matter as a matter of fact
you know, to be king you don’t need a castle…
why you walk around with your head low down
the true king rules without a crown
if your boat’s afloat after the typhoon
row it safely back to the lagoon
and never mind the green grass you won’t mow
or what it is you have or don’t to show
or what it is you can or can’t afford
the good are good without reward
you know, to be king you don’t need a castle…

    General Commentthis instantly became my new favorite off their new album. Simple lyrics a message that people need to be reminded of again and again.

    General Commentthis song's underlying point is that to feel great you dont need everything, and when your luck's run out you just need to push through and "row [it] safely back from the lagoon". basically, when everything's lost, pick up your life and get back on track.

    General CommentYoshi and Roy makes a good point, but i think its about being the best. "To be king you don't need a castle" Its hard to be the best at something, it will seem that everybody is better than you are. But this song is saying, its ok, you don't have to be the best to be happy, "The true king rules without a crown" :)
