lyrics

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you more time instead of a fall
Till the memes are so real you feel nothing at all
For the working class heros, it’s something to be
A working class hero, it’s something to be

They fail you at home as they pass you at school
Expel you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fracking crazy you can't follow the rules
They say, “a working class student, it’s something to be”

When they've tortured and scared you for seven more years
Then they expect you to put down the beers
But you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class student, it’s something to be
They say, “a working class student, it’s something to be”

Keep us doped with distractions of god and theory
We think we're so indie and awkward and free
But there’s still frac’ing peasants as far as I can see
A working class student, it’s something to be
A working class soldier, it’s something to be

Walking on glass, with a porn store below
discharge the queerbait, bound for a show
Manipulating reasons, the lines you must tow
A working class soldier, it’s something to be
A working class leader, it’s something to be

But there's room at the top they're selling you still
First you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to ride over those dicks on the hill
A working class hero it’s something to be
We working class heros are something to be

If you want to be a teacher, study with me
