In this messed up world we live in
full of pressure from has been’s
Telling us what we can or can’t do
they can’t tell a lie from the truth

It’s all shades of grey to them
even black and white they said
Do they give a damn? Hell no
more pressure on us when low

The world is hard and on the brink
so much going on, do they not think?
Too much going on in this world
from a cliff you sometimes wanna hurl

It’s all shades of grey to them
even black and white they said
Do they give a damn? Hell no
more pressure on us when low

So many are struggling these days
all work it seems, can’t afford to play
Pressures here and pressures there
this life is indeed so unfair

It’s all shades of grey to them
even black and white they said
Do they give a damn? Hell no
more pressure on us when low

We spend our lives obeying rules
from the suits who are fools
They live a life so carefree
is it any wonder we no longer believe?

It’s all shades of grey to them
even black and white they said
Do they give a damn? Hell no
more pressure on us when low

So sad when some have no fight left
with feelings that they feel bereft
Hearts and minds broken across the land
sinking they are in a financial quicksand

It’s all shades of grey to them
even black and white they said
Do they give a damn? Hell no
more pressure on us when low
