I can’t take it anymore

I can’t take the pressure no more, man,
I’m working all hours and taking the pills.
But, I can’t take it anymore, man.

I can’t take the pressure no more, man,
I’m using the tools and trying the tips.
But I can’t take it anymore, man.

I can’t take the pressure no more, man,
Got my head in a vice and steam in my ears.
But I can’t take it anymore, man.

I can’t take the pressure no more, man,
Living in the dark and eating their shit.
Do they think I’m a mushroom man?

There comes a point for most when it all just get too much. So we do what we can to get through the day.
