Pressure



I work all day, I work all night, just barely scraping by
The more you say, the more we fight, the more you seem to cry
Like a sick, sad carousel that keeps on spinning ‘round
On auto-pilot; I don’t have time to stop and break down
You say to me, you can relate, to carrying this on your back
How can that be, when this bed you made, is made up of what you lack
You want to play the victim when you give this half of what you can
Then you have the nerve to say to me that you understand

I can feel the pressure as it’s digging in
I’m suffocated by these four walls closing in
Barely breathing, barely scraping by
When all I want to do is just live my life
Without having to ask why

Why I’ve got to work myself to death
Why I’ve got to be the one to stress
Why I’m the one carrying the weight
Why I can’t get any time to breathe
2X

I barely sleep, but when I do, thoughts of when I’m awake
Consuming me, these thoughts of you, and the toll that this takes
You keep asking me the same questions that I’ve already answered
Like every argument and everything I said never even mattered
Bills pile up, the pressure swells, even though I work all day and night
You’ve given up, on yourself, I am forced into this never-ending fight
My bones will break under the weight of this burden you’ve escaped
The one that consumes my everything; It’s more than I can take

I can feel the pressure as it’s digging in
I’m suffocated by these four walls closing in
Barely breathing, barely scraping by
When all I want to do is just live my life
Without having to ask why

Why I’ve got to work myself to death
Why I’ve got to be the one to stress
Why I’m the one carrying the weight
Why I can’t get any time to breathe
2X

On one hand I want to give in; I want some kind of release
I want to escape the pressure that’s building up in me
On the other, I know that I have no choice anymore
If I don’t fight this will take everything I’ve ever worked for
Why does it have to be this way, why can’t I be free?
Please, just tell me why…

Why I’ve got to work myself to death
Why I’ve got to be the one to stress
Why I’m the one carrying the weight
Why I can’t get any time to breathe
2X
