Lyrics

I'm trapped and my back's up against the wall I see no solution or exit out I'm grinding it out, no one can see The pressure's growing exponetially

I'm trying to keep up to speed with you Your game changing is oscillating me I'm hitting the ground and I'm sprinting I'm falling behind now, I'm tuning out

Pressure building

Pressure building

Pressure building

Don't push me (Aah) Don't push me (Aah) Let me get off the ground (Don't push me) To you I'm no longer bound (Ooh wee aah)

Don't stop me (Ooh wee aah) Don't choke me (Ooh wee aah) I need you out of my head (Don't push us) You got me close to the edge (No pressure)

I'm feeling the pressure, I can't break out No one can hear me scream and shout Get out of my face, out of my mind I see your corruption, I'm not blind I'll carry the burden and take the strain And when I'm done I'll make you pay

Don't push me (Aah) Don't push me (Aah) Let me get off the ground (Don't push me) To you I'm no longer bound (Ooh wee aah)

Don't cut me (Ooh wee aah) Don't thwart me (Ooh wee aah) I need you out of my head (Don't push us) You got me close to the edge (No pressure)
