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 them, I flatten them
I take what I'm handed, I break what's demanded

But under the surface I feel beserk
As a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus
Under the surface, was Hercules ever like
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 will never stop
Woah
Pressure that'll tip tip tip till you just go pop
Woah oh-oh
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
The pressure like a drip drip drip and I won't let go?
Woah
Pressure like tick tick tick till it's ready to blow?
Woah oh-oh
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 hide 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 topplin'
But on and on it goes

But wait
If I could shake a 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 will never stop
Woah
Pressure like tip tip tip till you just go pop?
Woah oh-oh
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 like tick tick tick till it's ready to blow
Woah oh-oh
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
