"Apply Some Pressure" as written by Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Thomas Alexander English, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
You know that I would love to see you next year
I hope that I am still alive next year
You magnify the way I think about myself
Before you came, I rarely thought about myself

Behind your veil I found the body underneath
Inside your head were things I’d never thought about
You know that I would love to see you next year
I hope that I am still alive next year

What’s my view? Well, how am I supposed to know?
Write a review, well, how objective can I be?
What’s my view? Well, how am I supposed to know?
Write a review, well, how objective can I be?

You know that I would love to see you in that dress
I hope that I will live to see you undress
The everyday is part of what consumes me
The hate I feel is part of what fuels me

I testify to having guilty feelings
I must confess, I’d like to be caught stealing
You know that I would love to see you in that dress
I hope that I will live to see you undress

What’s my view? Well, how am I supposed to know?
Write a review, well, how objective can I be?
What’s my view? Well, how am I supposed to know?
Write a review, well, how objective can I be?

I like to wait to see how things turn out
If you apply some pressure
I like to wait and see how things turn out
If you apply some pressure

What happens when you lose everything?
You just start again, you start all over again
What happens when you lose everything?
You just start again, you start all over again

I like to wait to see how things turn out
If you apply some pressure
I like to wait to see how things turn out
If you apply some pressure

What happens when you lose everything?
You just start again, you start all over again
What happens when you lose everything?
You just start again, you start all over again
What happens when you lose everything?
You just start again, you start all over again

What happens when you lose some pressure?
Apply some pressure, you lose some pressure
Apply some pressure, you lose some pressure
Apply some pressure, you lose some pressure
What happens when you lose some pressure?
Apply some pressure, you lose, oh, everything
Will you just start again?

You know that I would love to see you next year
I hope that I am still alive next year
You know that I would love to see you in that dress
I hope that I will live to see you undress

    General CommentIt's about how we invest a lot of ourselves in something, it backfires and we back off, and then we move on ("start all over again"). Pretty much saying, if you invest to much in something good, you forget it can get shitty, and when it does you are forced to back off.
    By the way, best song on the album, love the video, the band is my new white stripes right now. Oh, white stripes, why''d you fuck up so bad?

    General CommentI looove this song. Heard them perform it at V festival, where I was with a guy who'd recently broken up with me after 13months of dating, and the words "what happens when you lose everything, you just start again, you start all over again" really helped me feel better! Like I actually could cope and survive. =) xx

    General Commentthis is fantastic. 'you know that i would love to see you next year', ha. i love this song lots. i have this summer job and i have this love/hate relationship with one of the lads who works there and i hate him but i have this strange attraction to him too, but cos this song is quite ironic and not soppy, it's sharp it's just the way i feel about him it's perfect. and the bit where it says: 'id like to see how things turn out if you apply some pressure' it goes for him cos he's such a 'hey, im a charming gorgeous man' type of lad who can get what he wants and i'd just love to see him have to try and do something instead of flirting his way through it.

    General Commenti can only R.A.V.E. about this new band! i´m so glad to have seen them in concert in february.
    they´re gonna be huge, really, and they fully deserve it.
    anybody heard their demo recordings? absolutely outstanding stuff!
    can´t wait to hear the finished album.
    MAXIMO PARK make bloc party and any other new british band look like boyscouts and boring old farts.
    be prepared for their debut album to be "the album of the year" - no fooling!
    re: APPLY SOME PRESSURE - the guitar riff will become a classic.
    and those lyrics just HIT me - "You know that i would love to see you next year / i hope that i am still alive next year" - Paul Smith, thank you so much!

    General CommentGreat band and definitley the next big thing, not in the same league as the libertines though, who to be fair, wipe the floor with maximo park.
