"Oceans Of Class" as written by Joby J. Ford, James Tweedy, Matt Caughthran and Jorma Vik....
Against these tides of war
I swim until I can't swim anymore
Just like I did the year before
Against oceans of class
I swim until my lungs finally collapse
And I'm at peace with my past

[Chorus:]
So drag me down to the ocean floor
Cause I don't want to fight no more
Against these tides pulling from all sides
I'm never going back to shore

This is my sinking ship
And as captain I must finally give in
Because I always knew
I always knew you'd win

Is it wrong to not want to be where you belong
Cause it takes way too long

[Chorus]

So drag me down to the ocean floor
Cause I don't want to fight no more
Against these tides pulling from all sides
I'm never going back to shore
Just let me sing myself to sleep

I made my mistakes and now it's time
To make my great escape
Because it takes way too long

[Chorus]

So drag me down to the ocean floor
Cause I don't want to fight no more
Against these tides pulling from all sides
I'm never going back to shore
Just let me sing myself to sleep

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the actual lyrics are

    Against these tides of war
    I'll swim until I can't swim anymore
    Just like I did the year before
    Against oceans of class
    I'll swim until my lungs finally collapse
    And I'm at peace with my past

    So drag me down to the ocean floor
    Cause I don't want to fight no more
    Against these tides pulling from all sides
    I'm never going back to shore

    This is my sinking ship
    And as captain I must finally give in
    Cos I always knew
    I always knew you'd win
    Is it wrong to not want to be where you belong
    Cos it takes way too long

    So drag me to the ocean floor
    Cause I don't want to fight no more
    Against these tides pulling from all sides
    I'm never going back to shore

    So drag me down to the ocean floor
    Cause I don't want to fight no more
    Against these tides pulling from all sides
    I'm not what you're looking for
    Just let me sing myself to sleep

    I made my mistakes
    And now it's time to make my great escape
    Cos it takes way too long

    So drag me down to the ocean floor
    Cause I don't want to fight no more
    Against these tides pulling from all sides
    I'm never going back to shore

    So drag me down to the ocean floor
    Cause I don't want to fight no more
    Against these tides pulling from all sides
    I'm not what you're looking for
    Just let me sing myself to sleep
