"Jaykub" as written by and Mark/lytle Linkous....
Jaykub, it's time for you to wake up and accept your awards
Inside your tiny little one room apartment of the poor

Up on the podium you smile and you wave
Well, they all thought that you were dumb
But it's you who's on that stage

Jaykub, you work until the day's done and then you go to bed
And never with anyone to talk to but the hero in your head
The hero

Up on the podium you're handsome and you're tall
But actually you are just hardly five foot small

Jaykub, it's time again to wake up and accept your awards
And go on smiling while your landlord is pounding on the door
Up on the podium you're famous and you're strong
Then the alarm goes off and you're a sad man in a song

    My Interpretationfantasizing about being in a successful band while you can barely pay your rent but you push yourself even more until it drains you sometimes and you end up sounding like a "sad man in a song" but you fight on because the music is engraved in your soul.

    i can relate to this song completely
