Sing and dance like we were young
Scream all the joy in your lungs oh
Half with a heavy heart
But not with shocked feet

To Kill a King - Funeral lyrics meaning

Meaning

To Kill a King's official lyric explanation


[Ralph]
The track Funeral is a song which is supposed to be a celebration of life. It's about... yeah, celebrating someone's life at a funeral rather than focusing on the loss and that sort of thing.

And I suppose about seizing the moment and living life for now. So it's very upbeat, despite the fact that the song is about a funeral.

The video was a friend of mine called Jack King - whose done quite a lot of our videos, actually. He did our first one for Cold Skin and then he's done absolutely loads... I think he's done about six for us? Has he? Six videos?

[Josh]
Yeah, he's done the bulk of them, hasn't he?

[Ralph]
Yeah, so, we really love working with him. He came up with this idea which is, basically, me being pushed around in a wheelchair. So it's my funeral - which was weird to go to my funeral - I thought there would be more people... there.

None of the band even turned up. You were selling balloons...

[Josh]
I was.

[Ralph]
Too busy... so, yeah, that was the idea behind it.
