What is the Song Eien Pressure About?

Eien Pressure is a song about a girl that feels like she is being pressured to get into a relationship with a guy that just came back from a movie with his friends. She wants to be beautiful but at the same time she tells the guy to not expect much from her. She feels like she is forced to adopt an image of beauty that is unrealistic. She is not skilled at learning how to live and she tells the guy that is following her that everyone differs in personality type. She thinks that love is like pressure that is eternal. Is love really like a bunch of pressure? She ends up saying that she really loves him and she wants to be with him. Eien Pressure is a very high energy song and stylistically it is not much different from Heavy Rotation.
