Dan Bull - Medicine Ball lyrics

Listen Imagine Dan sat in the back of an ambulance Chatting to Adam and telling him that he's had enough of this madness f** if that actually happened I haven't the faintest clue The concussion had damaged my grey matter and mushed my brain to goo But when I unravelled the bandage to see my face anew My eyes' vacant gaze described what I should aim to do And that's whatever the f** it takes to make it through Enough p**ying about, now I'm a sabretooth, and nature's brutal In the old days I used t O say I didn't need to pay my dues Ha - how far was I away from truth? And in the old days I used to wait for opportunities to happen Now I make my opportunities and grab them [Hook:] What doesn't k** will not make you stronger But at least you're going to live a little longer So take everything right on the chin And never ever ever give in I was nearly a limited edition Because I could have been swimming with the fishes But being in critical condition Would give me the volition To fulful my mission as a sk**ed musician, ambition: k** competition with my ill compositions And then build my position up until I'm a religion Roll up, roll up my shirt sleeves, I see the vision Turn the key in the ignition Burn and speed into the distance Even if it means you're gonna be in a collision Well at least you've given us a firm reason to listen Desert the feeble disposition Learn to feed on criticism Spurn the media's derision Earn your keep and keep on living Hurting people is a piece of piss But it requires guts to be kind I don't know why I didn't see this sh** I must have been blind But even despite that dust in my eye will never settle I will never bite the dust 'til I die [Hook:] What doesn't k** will not make you stronger But at least you're going to live a little longer So take everything right on the chin And never ever ever give in Look - whether you're holding a bunch of roses Or holding a gun just know this You've got to soldier on, roll with the punches, throw fists Keep holding on, lift that boulder on your shoulders strong Souls are one thing, but the body's been evolving long Before you ever knew the pain It's hurting me Recuperation is a state of elevation Gave me endless days to meditate and strengthen every failing I had Being a patient gave me patience and determination Dedication to bettering Dan Man, I've taken beatings, taken knees to the face My bloodstream stained the streets of this place Where I reside, seeped through the pavement Making me a piece of the neighbourhood Could you keep it more real than me right there if you tried? From the stitches in my elbow to the tears in my side My scars are badges of honour, I bear them with pride They stitched my scalp, fixed my split eyebrow And another time they took out a bit of my bowel Being a patient gave me patience and determination Helped me to see a way out of the maze, found an escape Came out of the daze How many ways more will I be knocked to the ground, now? But they named me Danny Boy Because you're never going to keep me down [Hook]
