lyrics

No matter how far I travel
I'm always right here
I’m the kid with the worst style
Staring into the mirror

And I’m the light of the party
When it’s all turned in
I’m a shot in the heart now
When it’s all growing dim

I’m a skull in the garden
Scaring away all the birds
And I’m the kid in the books that
Nobody's ever heard of

I’m the ghost with the most fear
Staring into the eyes
Of a trembling child who’s
Scared half of their life

There's a kid in the castle
And a frog on the throne
There's a kid in the castle

I’m a pen with no ink
A car with no gas
And I’m a writer with no will
I’m a dancer with no cash

I’m a guitar with no strings
Hear the overwhelming cheers
I’m a cup that’s torn open
I’m a keg with no beer

No matter how far I go now
I am always right here
I’m the kid with the worst style
Staring into the mirror
And yeah the one with the dumb smile
Stretching ear to ear

There's a kid in the castle
