lyrics

Couldn't take the pressure, couldn't take the heat
I was stuck in the kitchen with a burning piece of meat
Didn't have any options, didn't have any choice
Didn't have latitude, didn't have any voice
I was backed in a corner, I was gonna crash
So I put my teeth together and gnash, gnash, gnash

Broken old teeth
Grind, grind, grind, grind, grind

Couldn't take the burden, couldn't take the stress
The clock was always ticking and I felt duress
Didn't have a safe haven, no runway to land
Not a single friend to speak of, not a single helping hand
I was backed in a corner, I was gonna crash
So I put my teeth together and gnash, gnash, gnash

Couldn't take the tension, couldn't take the strain
The world I was living in caused me nothing but pain
Didn't have a fallback, ain't it a pip
It made me fucking angry, what a fucking gyp
I was backed in a corner, I was gonna crash
So I put my teeth together and gnash, gnash, gnash
