I can't take it anymore

 

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

 

 

 

'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?
