"Farewell to the Pressure Kids" as written by and Ohad Benchetrit Kevin Drew....
the pressure kids
they like to ask me
only the measures
will fall in along silence speaks
to the rhythm of
and the tongues made
who will save the lives
and fall in to arms of what always gives way
the pressure kids

    General CommentThe lyrics are pretty obtuse, but this song reminds me, musically and I guess by the title, of all the rock and roll types I used to hang out with who did a lot of drugs and lived crazy and listened to indie rock, (this is another song that sounds like Pavement.)

    A lot of those people are no longer with us. Yeah, eventually, you have to say farewell to the pressure kids.

    General Commentfrom the album liner:

    Well the pressure kids... they own asphalt, they won't roll the die,
    they just ask what they eat through the world of sick with words of shit,
    or the sad songs they will love to hate,
    they're just reaching through the worst of their kind

    Oh the pressure kids, they're over sin's cuz they hold the die
    do it all in the name of the weak and the wrong

    The pressure kids they won't control the die or sue their shoes of the constant tragedy

    Pressure kids they won't own the die they will love to hate
    and eat through the heart 'till it all goes away

    The pressure kids... they all love to play themselves, all to blame themselves
    the pressure kids... they all love to play themselves,
    they all just play their ends and all the giving in

    Well the pressure kids, they like to escalate, believe the measurers will form an alarm
    with the silence that speaks to the ridlin mouths and the tongues of hate/late
    who live the save-me lives and fall into arms that will always give us away

    The pressure kids...

    General Commentto me, "pressure kids" are young people who want to be different just for the sake of being different.

    "do it all in the name of the weak and the wrong" as in: these pressure kids justify themselves as bearers of the people's voice

    "they will love to hate" is just what these pressure kids like to do.

    "they all love to play themselves" means they love to indicate as if they are being themselves which is some kind of self-deception

    "they all just play their ends" means they will do their part but only what they think is their part and you can't expect anything more from them

    "they like to escalate, believe the measurers will form an alarm" to me means they like to raise an issue but they can't be expected to make a sustained effort to it because they expect somebody else will do just that

    "who live the save-me lives and fall into arms that will always give us away" doesn't seem so obscure, the pressure kids live the kinds of lives that is essentially about them wanting to be saved (e.g. doing drugs) and falling in with the wrong people

    General Commentnot knowing what the lyrics were, it sounds like childhood regressions and memories resurfacing from a rough childhood.

    General Commenti'm so lame for commenting this three times in a row. but i just wanted to point out how funny it is that all these "complete, comprehensible" lyrics sites all borrowed the old version of the lyrics from here. which is just the last stanza, and not even the right words, either.

    General CommentWhen I saw B.S.S recently, Kevin changed the lyrics somewhere to something like, "the pressure kids like to sit in arcades talking about themselves because that's all they ever do". For some reason, that really changed the meaning for me.
