This is pressure
Stay away from me
If life is bigger, then what do you see
You’re no better, no better than me
If this is pressure, show me
How you bleed

There is no romance in suffocation
The walls fall down like your expectations
You want to scream and you want to shout
But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out
This is pressure

No you won’t see me
Just ask your brother what he now believes
You’re no better, no better than me
If this is pressure
Tell me what do you see

There is no romance in suffocation
The walls fall down like your expectations
You want to scream and you want to shout
But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out
This is pressure

Pressure Now

Pressure come on down

There is no romance in suffocation
The walls fall down like your expectations
You want to scream and you want to shout
But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out
There is no romance in suffocation
The words fall out like your out of patience
You want to scream and you want to shout
But you can’t let out, no you can’t let out
This is pressure
This is pressure
This is pressure
So this is pressure

    General CommentThis song is more complex than it appears, i think.
    When you first look at it it just looks as if someone is getting frustrated because of the pressure in their life and they're stressing.
    I read the line "there is no romance in conversation, the words fall out like you're out of patience" (the lyrics above are wrong in places) and i know from experience that these are side effects of quite severe depression. When you try and have a normal conversation with anyone it comes out grumpy and angry but its just that your mind is so preoccupied inside itself (the part about "suffocation") that you cant even speak normally.
    So the song is about not only the stress and frustration, but how it appears on the outside as opposed to how it feels on the inside.
