thutmose – pressure lyrics

Loading...

[intro: erykah badu]
i feel sad because people’s emotions and fears were being manipulated
you know, the lowest parts of people have been manipulated to really believe or think that they can separate from the whole
we want it all, there is no separating, it’s illusion

[hook: thutmose]
they tried to get me under pressure
but you know i never settle
i got my eyes on the medal
so you know i’d never let up
pressure, pressure, pressure

[verse 1: thutmose]
i was 9 swat team came rushing in
daddy on the floor they put a gun to him
ever since been running from the government
lessons as a kid to be a better man
looking back at it, i was fortunate
still was a kid, it could have haunted me
new to this country, i was growing up
still wasn’t strong enough, took some of my innocence and burned it down
lifes not fair, i learned that way too quick
most important lesson, man just please don’t quit
running in a circle tryna figure ourselves
police on the corners tryna put us in cells
if god exists then why he put us in h-ll
sirens all around it’s like we’re stuck in a spell
looking for the light, it’s like i’m seeking for joy, it’s like i’m seeking for love, it’s like i’m seeking for help, no

[hook: thutmose]
they tried to get me under pressure
but you know i never settle
i got my eyes on the medal
so you know i’d never let up
pressure, pressure, pressure

[verse 2: thutmose]
look here dad i’m a man now
i know the world is scary i can’t back down
cuz everything i learned back then made me sharp
this is coming from the heart, paranoia from the start
a wise man once told me
watch out for those you call friend
cuz they all phony
time will tell their story
so i do it on my lonely
what the f-ck am i doing
lord forgive me, i feel so ruined
it’s been a few years since i been to church
feel so loved yet i still hurt
maybe i need a therapist
maybe this is was just destiny
cmon everybody quiet down
i need some sense of peace
go long
but always stay strong
cuz life goes on, so u gotta hold on
the angels coming in the morn
that means i’m going home

[hook: thutmose]
they tried to get me under pressure
but you know i never settle
i got my eyes on the medal
so you know i’d never let up
pressure, pressure, pressure

[?: thutmose]
stay strong baby, nahh
stay strong baby, yaaa
stay strong, stay strong, stay strong
stay strong baby, nahh
stay strong baby, yaaa
stay strong, stay strong, stay strong, oh

[outro: erykah badu]
there are energies and we feel them and they could be parts of ourselves
could be parts of us
you know the parts of us that are vibrating on lower frequencies
they’re fighting to stay on top
