Pressure to succeed, pressure
Pressure to succeed, depression

Pressures to assimilate, pressure to conform
Pressures that begin at nine and never end at five

Like a vice with a grip so tight we can scarcely breathe
With a weight so dense we can scarcely breathe

    General CommentSuch a great and powerful song! Its just about the pressures of modern life and how it can feel as though a great weight is on you...I love the lead guitar line, its incredible.
