pressure cracks lyrics – grieves

“pressure cracks”

[verse 1]
i feel like i’ve been breathing out of an exhaust pipe
on the job site, with a fist full of brittle sand
should have seen it coming
a mile away from the little hill in which i’m making a stand on
it makes a man of me (doesn’t it?)
and if it never kills me then i get a p*ss
wish i could’ve opened up the air around me
just a little bit so i could take a gasp
who the h*ll is watching?
put a notch in my belt, keep it on the tracks
shoulda woulda coulda never made a difference
when you’re playing chicken with your only chance
but it made a man of me, right? mad man
that gotta dance around and play his sounds
wish i knew back then what i know now
yeah, look at me now!

[hook]
dodging forever
spending a fortune to figure it out
i don’t believe it
never learned how
all of this pressure is driving me wild
look at me now
[repeat]

[verse 2]
i’m starting to feel like it’s stacking on my shoulders
another soldier with little patience to see the dawn
fought a lot of odds, in the name of cause
put em in a box buried in the lawn
but i learned a lesson from it, didn’t i?
and if i didn’t who the h*ll is gonna teach me?
i’ve been looking for answers
and none of em ever offered a lesson that’ll reach me
who can see me?
losing personal relationships like people do they house keys
i’ve been outside, looking inside
with a shadow casted all around me
and they doubt me
try to throw a little part of me away with every frown
just wish they saw what i know now
yeah, look at me now!

[hook]
dodging forever
spending a fortune to figure it out
i don’t believe it
never learned how
all of this pressure is driving me wild
look at me now
