GO DOWN SWINGING

It doesn‘t take a lot, it doesn‘t take too much.
And he goes off like a bomb at the slightest touch.
Just one word that he don‘t like and he’s seeing red.
He can‘t stand for that and so he’s shooting back.

Go down swinging – scared to death to lose his face,
Go down swinging – He runs his head against a wall.
Go down swinging – He leaves scorched earth behind.
Go down swinging – He’s drowning with a flying flag.

That boy always needs to have the very last word.
He’s never gonna let up, it’s him against the world.
He’s in a real tight corner with his back to the wall.
Lashing out in anger right before he falls.

Go down swinging – scared to death to lose his face,
Go down swinging – He runs his head against a wall.
Go down swinging – He leaves scorched earth behind.
Go down swinging – He’s drowning with a flying flag.

He’s hyped up all the time, got way too much false pride.
Every little dispute ends up in a fight.
So don‘t step on that boy ’cause he’s got a short fuse!
But he knows in the end it’s him who’s gonna lose.

Go down swinging – scared to death to lose his face,
Go down swinging – He runs his head against a wall.
Go down swinging – He leaves scorched earth behind.
Go down swinging – He’s drowning with a flying flag

Go down swinging – Go down swinging,
Go down swinging – Go down swinging,
Go down swinging – Go down swinging,
Go down swinging – Go down swinging;
