Little Simz – Pressure lyrics

[Verse 1: Little Simz]
Oh, let me apply the pressure, ayy
Start off ‘fore we end up gettin’ march on
I put my hands in the air so you don’t shoot
How in the world could you dare let a boss ruin?
Now do you care about all the eyes on you?
Now you wanna say we’re tellin’ lies on you
Same motherfuckers that be killin’ off the planet
Are the same fuckers advising you
But true, this stuff is surprising to
See them profit just off of depriving youth
Why you wanna all dress lies as truth?
Have you ever seen what silence do?
I don’t wanna see no violent troops
Puttin’ out fires that haven’t even been started
With a raw tip, man, I’m tired too
But I don’t lose, I refuse
Take a walk in my shoes
Or any other young black person in this age
All we ever know this pain
All we ever know is rage
That book starts on this page
Do not try to relate
It’s either you do or you don’t, shit
It’s either you will or you won’t
Hope you still got to engage
Don’t take offense, it’s too late
I say this to those who’ve never been poverty stricken
Always have a silver spoon to feed off
It may not be your fault, heard that line before
Leave that privilege shit at the door
I don’t care about none of that shit
Say it louder, keep playin’ my shit, whoa

[Verse 2: Little Simz]

Oh, keep applying pressure, ayy

Far from where I wanna be in this life

It’s nothin’ I can’t be in this life

I just wanna do my ting and be free in this life

Blinded at times, can’t see in this life

Just tryna past the test like I want eight stars, don’t give me no C in this life

I’m just glad that my young born kids won’t have you as a daddy in this life

Hold your L, you prick

F you, nigga really thought he was a G in this life

Fuck that, not stressing, get a next ting

I don’t wanna be angry in this life

Shit really got me down but

I’m still gonna succeed in life

Plant the seed, bend your knees

Gettin’ gold, no in-between

Born to fail, never was me

They never believed

Just had a dream and holes in my jeans

Down on my last, stand on my dean

Talkin’ to God, he makin’ me see

My reason to be here

Understanded that this is bigger than me

Watchin’ the news and feelin’ so helpless, can’t even help myself

I’m changin’ up all this shit

Say it louder, keep playin’ my shit

Man, I’m proud of how far we come

Won’t stop ’til we livin’ in bliss

Won’t stop ’til you know we meant it

Play no games with these ‘illionaires

Play no games with these niggas, I ain’t

Ain’t afraid of these niggas, I ain’t, nah

[Refrain 1]

Livin’ in your bed and not workin’ for a check

Everybody’s caught in the lifestyle

Michael Jordan steps, thinkin’ you can jump the test

Everybody’s caught on the lifestyle

Livin’ in your bed and not workin’ for a check

Everybody’s caught in the lifestyle

Michael Jordan steps, thinkin’ you can jump the test

Everybody’s caught on the lifestyle

[Refrain 2]

So you wanna be filthy rich, then?

Put yes men by itself

When you walk along this route

Put yes-yes by, put yes men by itself

So you wanna be filthy rich, then?

Put yes men by itself

When you walk along this route

Go, go swimming ‘gainst the tide

Go swim, swimming

[Outro]

East Side, East Side

All around us

All a’, all a’

East Side, East Side

All around us

Keep applying pressure, ayy
