Surface Pressure Lyrics

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 berserk as a tightrope walking 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 surе I’m worthless is I can’t be of servicе
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, whoa
Pressure that’ll tip, tip, tip
Till you just go pop, whoa-uh-uh
Give it to your sister, your sister’s older
Give her all the heavy things 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, whoa
Pressure like a tick, tick, tick
Till it’s ready to blow, whoa-uh-uh
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 had my nerves and it worsens, I worry somethin’ 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? Or simple pleasure?
Instead we measure this growing pressure

Keeps growing, keep going
‘Cause all we know is

Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, whoa
Pressure that’ll tip, tip, tip till you just go pop, whoa-uh-uh
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, whoa
Pressure like a tick, tick, tick
Till it’s ready to blow, whoa-uh-uh
Give it to your sister and never wonder
If the same pressure would’ve pulled you under

Who am I if I don’t have what it takes?
No cracks, no breaks
No mistakes
No pressure
