"Swinging From The Castles" as written by Aaron R. Bruno and Cameron Duddy....
I know, I know, I know
Ok?
I'll just do it later
What do you mean?
When I'm done
Don't forget

Uh, yeah

The kids are
The kids are blowing up the castles
We're trading
Love
And freedom, baby for our hastles
It's not for
Free
It's only fit for our survival
The kids are
The kids are swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles

A tomahawk and a fleet fox
Uproot it please
And let me see the nearest box office hit miss
And a karate kid
A remix
This is the end of original content

The kids are
The kids are blowing up the castles
We're trading
Love
And freedom, baby for our hastles
It's not for
Free
It's only free for our survival
The kids are
The kids are swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles

Holy fires
And mystical minds
The martyrdom dumb dummies
Frequesnt flyer, go-byers
I cry out
Came, punched April out
Know what version did you get
But the sucker's in the south

The kids are
The kids are blowing up the castles
We're trading
Love
And freedom, baby for our hastles
It's not for
Free
It's only fit for our survival
The kids are
The kids are swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles

Please please
Make the dirty preacher freeze
Please please
Make that dirty preacher freeze
Please please
Let that dirty preacher freeze
Jesus, write my lyrical outro with the greatest of ease

Ease, ease, ease, ease

The kids are
The kids are blowing up the castles
We're trading
Love
And freedom, baby for our hastles
It's not for
Free
It's only fit for our survival
The kids are
The kids are swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles
We're trading
Love
And freedom, baby for our hastles
It's not for
Free
It's only fit for our survival
The kids are
The kids are swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles
Swing
Swing
They're swinging from the castles

Love

Love

Love

    Lyric CorrectionI hear this in the first verse:

    A tomahawk and a fleet fox
    Uproot it please
    And let me see the nearest box office hit miss
    And a karate kid
    A remix
    This is the end of original content

    and this in the chorus:
    It's only fit for our survival

    Song MeaningTomahawk and Fleet Foxes are both alternative bands --it sounds like he finds their sounds to be derivative, since he compares them to the Karate Kid film remake. The concept of this whole verse seems to be how all current pop culture is retreads and remakes. I'm not sure about the next verse, but the last one seems like a comment on hypocrisy in religion.

    General CommentThe 'kids' symbolize the modern film industry and the 'castles' symbolize all the old movies and IPs. Basically just a bunch of sequels and reboots nowadays
