"Crown on the Ground" as written by and Alexis Krauss Derek Miller....
You never doubted it,
You're so proud of it,
?
There's no doubt of it,
You couldn't care less,
You love goodness,
You think it's endless, endless, endless,
You think it's gotta diss,
It doesn't bother us,
No, nobody know never knew about it,
And in the spotlight,
You get to sit tight,
You wanna hit that, ah, ah

Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah ah-ah,
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah,

You need to know how,
To say you'll backtrack,
Between the clear bag,
Somewhere in your habitat,
You have a little thing,
You think you're bothering,
The class is ending, ending, ending,
You never did know,
You don't wanna know,
There's another show playing in your window,
The perm'nent thought of you,
Is ? through,
You're gonna have to, have to, have to,

Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Set, set that crown on the ground and-ah,
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah ah-ah,
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah,

    General CommentAt the end of the song I think she yells "Sic Semper" as in sic semper tyrannis (basically death to tyrants), which i think ties into the whole Crown on the ground name of the song. Anyone see that too?

    General CommentLYRICS FROM THE NEW VINYL INSERT | Band Official:

    you never doubted it
    your so proud of it ----- (they used the wrong your in the insert. not me.)
    you straight shouted it
    you sold out of it

    you couldn't care less
    you're like a kid yes
    you think its endless
    endless endless

    you think you started this
    it doesn't bother us
    no clue about it
    no you never knew about it

    you need the spotlight
    you need to sit tight
    you wanna real fight ah ah

    set set that crown on the ground 6x
    ah ah ah

    you need to look back
    to see your back track
    do you hear that
    someone in your habitat
    you are the real thing
    you hear the bell ring

    the class is ending ending ending

    you don't think though
    you don't wanna know
    there's another show playing in your window
    but for the better you
    it's never never through
    you're gonna have to have to have to

    you set that crown on the ground 6x
    ah ah ah

    Lyric CorrectionFirst missing lyric might be 'it's worth shouting it' - though I like yeahyeahyeah92's 'you street-shouted it', too.

    The second sounds like 'is that we're never through', but how does that work with 'the perm'nent thought of you?'

    And 'to see a clear PATH somewhere in your habitat' makes more sense to me.

    mathtractor, I love the 'sic semper' idea and it's joining the official lyrics in my head.

    General CommentIf I ever made a Charlie's Angel-esque, kick-butt action film, this would be the theme music for the lead heroine. It's got such an awesome vibe!

    This song is gonna be in all types of random car commercials soon enough

    General CommentI kept singing "Sad, sad, like a crown on the ground", but "Set that crown on the ground" makes so much more sense with the other lyrics.
    I guess it's about swallowing your pride, and getting over yourself.

    General CommentFrom looking at the lyrics, it seemed to be about a popular/goody-two-shoes girl ("you love goodness"/"in the spotlight") who wants to let loose, and she's saying it's okay to "se that crown on the ground". I can't really make out the 2nd verse though.
