Soko told Dazed Digital: "My friends were making fun of me for being such a square, so I started writing music while smoking every now and then. I wrote ‘Ocean Of Tears’ completely stoned out of my mind."

OCEAN OF TEARS

Soko

I've burnt the loans cuz I'm alone
I feel an ocean of tears underneath my tongue
And the world is ending any minute now
And I can't be laughing cuz I know it's real

O, I really hope I can be abducted
If there's a God out there, just take me away
Then I can be myself, no reason to hide
In the ocean of fears, now enjoy the ride

You know I am scared to drown
In the ocean of tears, in the ocean of fears

I thought I was a witch who was responsible
For the death of all the people that I love the most
Trying to forgive myself for the wrong I've done
O god has a plan to kill us all

And everyday I wake up from a crazy dream
Where I'm looking for my daddy, and I know he's here
And I don't wanna wake, I can control my dreams
I feel safer this way, cuz I can disappear

You know I am scared to drown
In the ocean of tears, in the ocean of fears
You know I will learn to rise
From the ocean of tears, from the ocean of fears

Hold your breath, learn to die, stay, enjoy
Hold your breath, learn to die, stay, enjoy
And I'm too aware of my mortality
I thought I was a kid when I wasn't a kid

And I'm haunted now, I am haunted now
And when I'm digging the grave
Kiss me dead dad, o, kiss me dead
Kiss me
