"Working Against Me" as written by Julian Matthew Carroll, Clint Wesley Hyndman and Paul Anthony Dempsey....
I took my time
And whatever else I could find
I didn't care at the time
I've got it all planned
I'm gonna mark out my land
I've drawn some lines in the sand
I thought time would change things
I thought that things would change
I thought you thought I think you thought
But everything is the same
I try to stay between your world and mine
But that's a crooked line
And I don't wanna look at you
And I don't wanna have to think
I'll blame the captain and the crew
'cause they said it wouldn't sink
They said it wouldn't sink
My legs won't hold me up
Your heart is pounding in my head
My mouth seems to be working against me
I don't wanna look at you
And I don't wanna have to think
I'll blame the captain and the crew
'cause they said it wouldn't sink
They said it wouldn't sink
My legs won't hold me up
Your heart is pounding in my head
My mouth seems to be
My legs won't hold me up
Your heart is pounding in my head
My mouth seems to be working against me

    General Commenti guess this is a song about a relationship of somekind falling apart becasue the guy doesnt show the right respect to his partner "i thought you thought i think you thought",
    he says the wrong things, "my mouth seems to be working against me"
    and his friends said that it would work, their relationship would last "it wouldnt sink" but they where wrong, the relationship is sinking, and he is drowning in his own words.
