Pressure pushing down on me,
Pressing down on you. No man asks for.
Under pressure that burns a building down,
Splits a family in two,
Puts people on streets.

 

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about.
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Get me out".
But tomorrow gets me higher.
Pressure on people - people on streets

Chippin' around, 
Kick my brains round 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!"
Tomorrow take me higher, higher, 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!

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..?

'Cause [Because] love's such an old-fashioned word,
and love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night,
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves...

This is our last dance.
This is our last dance.
This is ourselves...

 

Under pressure.

Under pressure.

Pressure!
