Surface Pressure lyrics from memory!

Like Flower, I relate to this song in one way or another. Even though I don't have any sisters or brothers I still sometimes feel like I have to carry the whole family on my back and sometimes gotta relax hehe.

I'm the strong one

I'm not nervous

I'm as tough as the crust of the earth is

 

I move mountains

I move churches

And I glow 'cause I know what my worth is

 

I don't ask how

Hard the work is

Got a rough indestructible surface

 

Diamonds and platinum

I find 'em, I flatten 'em

I take what I'm handed

I break what's demanded

But!

 

Under the surface

I feel as bezerk as a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus

Under the surface

Was Hercules ever like, "Yo, I don't wanna fight Cerberus?"

 

Under the surface

I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service

A flaw or a crack

The straw in the stack

That breaks the camel's back

What breaks the camel's back?

 

It's pressure like a drip, drip, drip, that'll never stop, woah

Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip, till you just go pop, woah

Give it to your sister, your sister's older

Give her all the heavy things that we can't shoulder

Who am I if I can't run with the ball

If I fall to

 

Pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won't let go, woah

Pressure that'll tick, tick, tick, until it's ready to blow, woah

Give it to your sister, your sister's stronger

See if she can hang on a little longer

Who am I if I can't carry it all

If I falter

 

Under the surface

I've had my nerves and it worsens

I worry something is gonna hurt us

Under the surface

The ship doesn't swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is

 

Under the surface

I think about my purpose

Can I somehow preserve this?

Line up the dominoes

A light wind blows

You try to stop it tumbling

But on and on it goes!

 

But wait

If I could shake

The crushing weight

Of expectations

 

Would that free some room up for 

Joy

Or relaxation?

Instead we measure

Keeps growing, growing

'Cause all we know is

 

Pressure like a drip, drip, drip, that'll never stop, woah

Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip, till you just go pop, woah

Give it to your sister, it doesn't hurt and

See if she can handle every family burden

Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks

 

No mistakes!

Just pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won't let go, woah.

Pressure that'll tick, tick, tick, till it's ready to blow

Woah!

 

Give it to your sister and never wonder

If the same pressure would have pulled you under

Who am I if I don't have what it takes?

No cracks

No breaks!

No mistakes, no pressure!
