Because the pressure's on me
Jay leaves the form of this ‘pressure’ open-ended so that the listener can relate to the concept. This could be the pressure to succeed, the fear of failure, the pressure to make music, or pressure to do certain things in life from society.
Also note the wordplay of “the pressure” as it sounds like “depression,” which is why he has the lonely face.
