Music Monday: “Don’t Back Down” by Mammoth WVH

Music Monday is hosted by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek.

I bet y’all thought I was never coming back to update this blog, didn’t you? Honestly, I didn’t know when I was going to make my way back here… but I was listening to this song tonight when it suddenly occurred to me that it was Monday. A quick check of the clock proved I still had time to do it, so allow me to present.. <insert drumroll>… my first Music Monday in nearly two years!

(Oh dear lord… has it REALLY been that long?! That makes me sad.)

My oldest son clued me in about this song. I rarely listen to the radio anymore (god, I must be getting old), so I’m basically clueless about new music anymore. Luckily, he’s pretty good at guessing which songs will catch my attention. He recently told me I needed to check out this video and give this song a listen, that he was pretty sure I’d like it. And he was right. I did like it. I think it’s a great song, and the video is fun and entertaining to watch.

I hope y’all will enjoy this video as much as I did.

Lyrics:
Breathe it in
All the madness around you
Feelin’ like it’s the end of days
Thrown aside, now you know that you want to
They don’t know better anyway

Yeah
Everybody’s goin’ crazy
Yeah
Won’t be long until we’re dead and gone

A revival, another reprisal
Hurry up, better not be late
Time to go, need to know that you’re in this
Take a stand, don’t hesitate

Yeah
Everybody’s goin’ crazy
Yeah
Won’t be long until we’re dead and gone

don’t back down, just don’t back down
Don’t back down, just don’t back down
(Hold on) don’t back down, just don’t back down
Don’t back down, just don’t back down

don’t back down, just don’t back down
Don’t back down, just don’t back down
(Hold on) don’t back down, just don’t back down
Don’t back down, just don’t back down

Spill the hate, ain’t it great, got the word through
Eyes are open, you made your case
Now you’re done, I don’t think that you need to
They won’t know

Yeah
Everybody’s goin’ crazy
Yeah
Don’t you look away

Yeah
Everybody’s goin’ crazy
Yeah
Won’t be long until we’re dead and, dead and gone
Dead and gone
