"Master of the Universe" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy James Price....
If you want to know how far to go to hell
Just ask me
If you want to see the view from your knees
Come down and join me
I'm the final straw
The nail in the coffin
Just by being who I am
Is so Goddamned

I'm not the master of the Universe
I walk the Earth the wrong way
Met my potential and fulfilled the worst
My best is cursed the wrong way

Your glass is half, his glass is full
My glass is empty
You're running short of not enough
Well I got plenty
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
And who I am
Is so Goddamned

I'm not the master of the Universe
I walk the Earth the wrong way
Met my potential and fulfilled the worst
My best is cursed the wrong way

And when I die I'm gonna fly and come and get you
And when you try and run I'll be the curse above you
It's gonna end
It's gonna end

In the race for disaster I will come in first
That's what I've learned
The hard way

What?!

If you want to know how far to go to hell
Just ask me
If you want to see the view from your knees
Come down and join me

I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way

    Song MeaningIt seems that the meaning is obvious. The speaker is a "total loser", at least by the metric that he seems to be using.

    General CommentI'm actually impressed by this song. Lyrically, it uses some of the same methods as Modest Mouse to create its imagery. If you don't know what I mean, I'm talking about how the metaphors are picked apart and used literally.
