Song Meaning
Verse 1
Pressure, pressure
Pressure
Verse 2
No I never can understand it
The way the system plan
There's no hope, no chance
No loophole, no escape for a suffering man
'Cause every time I leave my head above water
And try to save myself from drown
There's an overnight scheme all worked out
Designed to keep ah me down
Verse 3
Still I'm (putting up a resistance)
I'm ah gonna work it out
You know I'm (putting up a resistance)
I've got to work it out
Verse 4
No window, no window
I want to stay home tonight
I long to spend some time with the family
But staying home won't make it right
Sometimes the pressure make me feel like
When every sign says no way out
Breaking my back to make an overtime dollar
That just goes from man to mouth
Verse 5
Still I'm (putting up a resistance)
I'm gonna work it out
You know I'm (putting up a resistance)
I've got to work it out
Lord I'm (putting up a resistance)
I'm ah gonna work it out
You know I'm (putting up a resistance)
I'm gonna work it out, Lord!
Verse 6
Got to fight it
Got to fight it
Verse 7
No I never can understand it
The way the system goes
I don't know how they do it
There's only one way things flow
I don't know how they do it
'Cause every time I leave my head above water
And try to save myself from drowning
There's an overnight scheme all worked out
Designed to keep ah me down
Verse 8
Still I'm (putting up a resistance)
I've got to work it out
You know I'm (putting up a resistance)
I'm gonna work it out now
Putting up a resistance
I'm gonna work it out
Verse 9
No window, no window
I want to stay home tonight
I'd like to spend some time with the family
But staying home won't make it right
Sometimes the pressure make me feel like
When every sign says no way out
Breaking my back to make an overnight dollar
That just goes from man to mouth
