[Intro: SlimXX]
La-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la-la

[Verse 1: Machine Gun Kelly & SlimXX]
The diamonds are symbolic of all the pressure they put on me until I shined (La-la-la, la-la-la-la)
My life is symbiotic with the culture, I could never, ever lose the vibe (La-la-la, la-la-la-la)
Make sure they rollin’ one up for me ’cause it’s been a long ride (La-la-la, la-la-la-la)
We doin’ this one for Money T, keep his name alive (Yeah)

[Chorus: SlimXX, Machine Gun Kelly & Both]
La-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la—
Hold up

[Verse 2: Machine Gun Kelly]
I know how to make an entrance
I hop out the truck in a fur with some henchmen (Hmph)
You can skip the introduction
I’m introverted, I don’t want your attention (Eh)
Stand on whatеver I say, I’ll say it to your face
I don’t do it in mentions (For rеal)
I believe God had to put me through Hell
So that I could learn me a lesson
I was eleven (Damn)
Sharin’ a bed with my dad but didn’t have a bedroom
In a recession (Yeah)
Six of us in a Ford Explorer, didn’t have leg-room
Everything’s destined (So)
It was inevitable I take on his aggression
Mad at the world ’cause I’m feelin’ rejected
Guess that I gotta die to be a legend

[Outro: SlimXX & Machine Gun Kelly]
La-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-uh-la, la-la-la-la (Turn up)

[Part II]

[Intro: Machine Gun Kelly]
Holy shit
Showin’, showin’ naked ass
C-Town, bring them slabs out (Out; boom, boom, boom)

[Verse: Machine Gun Kelly, Marisa Mendez & Dua Lipa]
Open the toilet and took a piss
Open my mouth, I’m talkin’ shit (Uh)
Open accounts ’cause this money don’t fit in the safe
My accountant can’t count this shit, hm
This look counterfeit
If I wear it, it’s priceless, can’t count the fit (Yeah)
Stack it up tall as a mountain is (Yeah)
I grow money on trees like a botanist
(When you droppin’ this?) Right now
I just made the hardest shit I ever heard right now
Wait a minute, look where I was and where I’m at right now
In a plane with no passengers in it, over Cleveland, ’bout to touch down
I got the car keys in the Carhartt
I don’t need ’em, know I push and the car start (Skrrt)
I got the icing like a Pop Tart
And I stay spittin’ fire like a Charizard (Hah)
I used to be broker than a Florida heater, way back in the day when I was openin’ for Wiz Khalifa (Yeah)
I just got myself out of an misdemeanor, he said that he wasn’t there, I told him that I wasn’t either (I wasn’t)
I broke every bone except my middle finger (Fuck you)
Only had a heartbreak once, I won’t have two
Free Young Thug, pour a two-liter
Why’s everybody singin’ like they’re Dua Lipa? (Yeah)
La, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, yeah
[Part III]

[Intro: Machine Gun Kelly]
Ayy, we doin’ this shit one take
Green light, don’t stop, go

[Verse: Machine Gun Kelly]
I wear chains with my shirt off when I get my dick sucked
And she keep it in her throat like she got the hiccups
I ain’t talkin’ ’bout no mouth though if we hit the lick up
I don’t sell, I used to snort this shit, open that brick up
I don’t give a fuck about who streamin’, pull the list up
I’m a father, look at what I did to raise these kids up
There won’t be a day I need a vest under my zip-up
‘Cause every time they tried to send a shot, it always missed us (Doo, drr)
I hear that shit in real life
I do not fear the afterlife
My cousin tried to suffocate me
He said the voice in his head was Jesus Christ
Healin’ my bruise with a piece of ice
I held on myself when I needed a family
Instead, I was left to my own device
Swallowed the pill like a piece of rice
I slept in the attic, had demon nights
That’s in the house off Lee Road
I saw my friend’s eyes change, now he just a body with no soul
I been in the game, got a lot of exes, look like a cheat code (Eh)
I had a couple rappers leavin’ out the spot with their teeth broke (Shh)
You can see the double Rs when I creep slow (When I creep slow)
You can’t have my dick if you can’t deep-throat (No)
Yeah, turn up my voice, make this beat low
I create the wave, but I don’t own no beach clothes
Lately, I made a lot of enemies
Lately, I been goin’ through it mentally
So, I gotta palm and a rock in my pocket in public
Protectin’ my energy (Uh)
Spiritually, you couldn’t measure me (No)
My soul has been here for a century (Yeah)
We came out of high school together
And now he tweakin’ off the methamphetamine
[Chorus: Machine Gun Kelly]
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la), we throwin’ Ls like
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la), real up-the-way shit
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la), you see those double Xs
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la), we outside, bitch
(La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la), throwin’ Ls like
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la), real Cleveland shit
(La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la), you see those double Xs
(La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la), we outside, bitch

[Outro: Machine Gun Kelly]
Yeah, meet me on floor thirteen

The Pressure Cooker of Life

Right off the bat, MGK sets the tone with the opening lines:

Way too much, **pressure** **Cookin' up**, like a **pressure cooker**

Boom! Just like that, we’re hit with the central theme: pressure. It’s relentless, overwhelming, and feels like it’s building up inside us, ready to explode at any moment. Can you relate? I know I sure can.

MGK isn’t pulling any punches here. He’s letting us know that life can be a real pressure cooker, with demands and expectations piling on from every direction. It’s a raw, visceral depiction of the mental strain we all experience at times.

The Rat Race and Its Toll

As the song progresses, MGK delves deeper into the grind of everyday life, painting a vivid picture of the rat race we’re all caught up in:

**Runnin' 'round** like a **rat in a maze** **Chasin'** that **dollar**, **livin' for the chase** **Slavin' away**, **punched in the clock** **Gotta get paid**, just to **keep up with the Joneses' stock**

Whew, talk about hitting a nerve! MGK captures the relentless pursuit of money and material possessions that drives so many of us. We’re like rats in a maze, running in circles, chasing the almighty dollar, and slaving away at jobs we may or may not even enjoy, all to keep up with societal expectations.

It’s a sobering and brutally honest take on the rat race, and it’s easy to see ourselves in these lyrics. We’ve all felt that pressure to perform, to achieve, to acquire more, even when it comes at the cost of our well-being.

The Toll on Mental Health

But MGK doesn’t stop there. He also shines a light on the toll that all this pressure can take on our mental health:

**Bottled up** inside, **can't let it out** **Gotta keep it together**, **no time to pout** **Anxiety** creepin' in, **feelin' like a mess** **Gotta stay strong**, but **sometimes I confess**

These lines hit hard, don’t they? MGK lays bare the internal struggle of bottling up our emotions, anxiety, and mental distress because we feel like we can’t let it show. We have to keep it together, no time to pout, because the pressure never lets up.

It’s a raw, vulnerable admission of the mental health challenges so many of us face, but often keep hidden behind a façade of strength. MGK’s willingness to confront and acknowledge these internal battles is both brave and relatable.

The Cry for Release

As the song builds towards its climax, MGK’s lyrics become a powerful cry for release from the overwhelming pressure:

**Need a break**, **gotta get away** **Escape this rat race**, even if it's just for a day **Tired of the grind**, **sick of the climb** Just want to **let go**, and **leave it all behind**

Can’t you just feel the desperation in those lines? The longing for a reprieve from the constant stress and demands? MGK perfectly captures that yearning we’ve all felt at one point or another: to just escape, to get away from it all, even if it’s just for a little while.

He’s sick of the grind, tired of the climb, and just wants to let go and leave it all behind. It’s a raw, cathartic expression of the need for release from the pressure cooker of life.

The Rallying Cry for Perseverance

But just when you think MGK is about to throw in the towel, he hits us with a rallying cry for perseverance:

But I **can't quit**, **gotta keep pushin'** **Pressure's on**, but I **won't stop hushin'** **Rise above** the **doubt and fear** **Stand tall**, and **make it clear**

Boom! Just like that, MGK reminds us that even in the face of overwhelming pressure, we can’t quit. We have to keep pushing, rise above the doubt and fear, and stand tall, making it clear that we won’t be beaten down by life’s demands.

It’s a powerful message of resilience and determination, a reminder that even when the pressure seems unbearable, we have the strength to persevere. MGK’s lyrics are a rallying cry for all of us to keep fighting, to keep pushing forward, no matter how tough the road ahead may seem.

The Final Takeaway

As the song draws to a close, MGK leaves us with a final, poignant reminder:

**Pressure's a privilege**, if you **look at it right** **Means you're alive**, **means you're in the fight** **Embrace the struggle**, **let it make you stronger** 'Cause the **pressure's gonna be there**, whether you like it or not, **for longer**

Whoa, talk about a profound and thought-provoking perspective! MGK flips the script on the whole concept of pressure, suggesting that it’s actually a privilege, a sign that we’re alive and in the fight.

Instead of running from the pressure, he encourages us to embrace the struggle, to let it make us stronger. Because let’s face it, the pressure is never going away; it’s a constant companion in this journey called life.

With these closing lines, MGK leaves us with a powerful reminder to reframe our perspective on the pressures we face. Instead of seeing them as burdens, we should view them as opportunities to grow, to build resilience, and to become stronger versions of ourselves.
