(Michael)
Tired of injustice
Tired of the schemes
Kind of disgusted
So what does this mean? (dammit)
Kicking me down(and I)
I got to get up
It's jacked as it sounds
The whole system sucks (dammit)

(Janet)
A peek 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 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
Your bash abusin victimize 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 you just wanna scream

(Michael)
Tired of you tellin the story your way
It's causin confusion
You think it's okay (dammit)

(Janet)
You Keep changin the rules
While I'm 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
Your bash abusin victimize within the scheme
(Janet)
You find your pleasure scandalizin every lie
(Both)
Oh brother, 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 fuckin 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)
"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)
With such collusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
(Janet)
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
(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 pressurin me Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin me Just stop pressurin' me

    Isn't it obvious? They're both singing about the pressure of being in the limelight, of the paparazzi, who peek in the shadows, scrutinize everything they do, make up lies about them to sell magazines and photos, just the public eye in general and what the media does to people like the jacksons just to make a quick buck. It's about what they have to go thru as pop stars, but also about the sick, perverse fascination the media has with bad news, and the terrible lengths they will go to create stories that sell.
