Lyrics

(Michael)
Tired of injustice
Tired of the scheme
Life is disgustin’
So what does it mean, damn it
You kickin’ me down
I got to get up
As jacked as it sounds
The whole system sucks, damn it

(Janet)

See more lyrics

Peek in the shadow
Come into the light
You tell me I’m wrong
Then you better prove you’re right
You’re sellin’ out souls but I
I care about mine
I’ve got to get stronger
And I won’t give up the fight

(Michael)
With such confusions don’t it make you wanna scream
(Janet)
Make you wanna scream
(Michael)
Your bash abusin’ victimise within the scheme
(Janet)
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
(Both)
Somebody please have mercy
‘Cause I just can’t take it

Stop pressurin’ me
Just stop pressurin’ me
Stop pressurin’ me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin’ me
Just stop pressurin’ me
Stop pressurin’ me
Make me wanna scream

(Michael)
Tired of tellin’
The story your way
It’s causin’ confusion
You think it’s okay, damn it

(Janet)
Keep changin’ the rules while
Keep playin’ the game
I can’t take it much longer
I think I might go insane

(Michael)
With such confusion don’t it make you wanna scream
(Janet)
Make you wanna scream
(Michael)
Your bash abusin’ victimise within the scheme
(Janet)
You find your pleasure scandalisin’ every lie
(Both)
Oh father, please have mercy ’cause I just can’t take it

Stop pressurin’ me
Just stop pressurin’ me
Stop pressurin’ me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin’ me
Just stop pressurin’ me
Stop ****ing with me
Make me wanna scream

(Janet)
Oh my God, can’t believe what I saw as I turned on the TV this evening
I was disgusted by all the injustice, all the injustice
(Michael)
All the injustice

(News Man in background)
A man has been brutally beaten to death by police after being wrongly identified as a
robbery suspect. The man was an 18 year old black male…

(Michael)
Baby with such collusions don’t it make you wanna scream
(Janet)
Make me wanna scream
(Michael)
Your bash abusin’ victimise within the scheme
(Janet)
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
(Both)
Oh brother please have mercy
‘Cause I just can’t take it
Can’t take it

Stop pressurin’ me
Just stop pressurin’ me
Stop pressurin’ me
Make me wanna scream
(Continue ’til end)
