Pressure Lyrics

Oh, let me apply the pressure, ayy
Start off 'fore we end up gettin' march on
Your mark, get set, ready, gunshot
I put my hands in the air so you don't shoot
How in the world could you dare let a boss through?
Now do you care about all the eyes on you?
Now you wanna say we're tellin' lies on you
Same motherfuckers that be killin' off the planet
Are the same fuckers advising you
But true, this stuff is surprising too
See them profit just off of depriving youth
Why you wanna all dress lies as truth?
Have you ever seen what silence do?
I don't wanna see no violent troops
Puttin' out fires that haven't even been started
With a raw tip, man, I'm tired too
But I don't lose, I refuse
Take a walk in my shoes
Or any other young black person in this age
All we ever know this pain
All we ever know is rage
That book starts on this page
Do not try to relate
It's either you do or you don't, shit
It's either you will or you won't
Hope you still got will to engage
Don't take offense, it's too late
I say this to those who've never been poverty stricken
Always have a silver spoon to feed off
It may not be your fault, heard that line before
Leave that privilege shit at the door
I don't care about none of that shit
Say it louder, keep playin' my shit, whoa

Oh, keep applying pressure, ayy
Far from where I wanna be in this life
It's nothin' I can't be in this life
I just wanna do my ting and be free in this life
Blinded at times, can't see in this life
Just tryna past the test like I want eight stars, don't give me no C in this life
I'm just glad that my young born kids won't have you as a daddy in this life
Hold your L, you prick
F you, nigga really thought he was a G in this life
Fuck that, not stressing, get a next ting
I don't wanna be angry in this life
Shit really got me down but
I'm still gonna succeed in life
Plant the seed, bend your knees
Gettin' gold, no in-between
Born to fail, never was me
They never believed
Just had a dream and holes in my jeans
Down on my last, stand on my dean
Talkin' to God, he makin' me see
My reason to be here
Understanded that this is bigger than me
Watchin' the news and feelin' so helpless, can't even help myself
I'm changin' up all this shit
Say it louder, keep playin' my shit
Man, I'm proud of how far we come
Won't stop 'til we livin' in bliss
Won't stop 'til you know we meant it
Play no games with these 'illionaires
Play no games with these niggas, I ain't
Ain't afraid of these niggas, I ain't, nah

Livin' in your bed and not workin' for a check
Everybody's caught in the lifestyle
Michael Jordan steps, thinkin' you can jump the test
Everybody's caught on the lifestyle
Livin' in your bed and not workin' for a check
Everybody's caught in the lifestyle
Michael Jordan steps, thinkin' you can jump the test
Everybody's caught on the lifestyle So you wanna be filthy rich, then?
With yes men by your sides
When you walk along this route
Put yes-yes by, with yes men by your sides
So you wanna be filthy rich, then?
With yes men by your sides
When you walk along this route
Go, go swimming 'gainst the tide
Go swim, swimming

East Side, East Side
All around us
All a', all a'
East Side, East Side
All around us
Keep applying pressure, ayy
