Pressure, pushing down on me
 Pressing down on you, no man ask for
 Under pressure that burns a building down
 Splits a family in two, puts people on streets, that's okay

It's the terror of knowing what this world is about  Watching some good friends screaming, "Let me out"
Pray tomorrow gets me higher  Pressure on people, people on streets, okay

 Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor  These are the days it never rains but it pours  People on streets, people on streets 

It's the terror of knowing what this world is about  Watching some good friends screaming, "Let me out"
Pray tomorrow gets me higher, high, high
 Pressure on people, people on streets 

 Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work, keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn, why, why, why?
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love

 Insanity laughs, under pressure we're cracking 
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love?

'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night 
And loves dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves 
This is our last dance, this is ourselves  Under pressure, under pressure, pressure
