“‘Karate School’ is a song about a young boy in rural England. Whose parents were killed in an accident where they were playing around with dark magic. The boy is forced to live with his relatives and then he gets an invitation to dark magic school. He irresponsibly decides to go to dark magic school. Where he meets some other unfortunate kids. And they all take karate. And some ducks show up.” – James Dewees
