about

"Debut single "Not Givin’ Up" heralds James Deacon’s awakening to his own powerful determination. A blistering clarion call to those who yearn to give their managers and imposers, their higher ups and inhibitors the two-finger salute and to take their destiny into their own hands."

lyrics

Not Givin' Up

Don't wait up
I'm not coming home
I'm done chasing
I'm done wasting
I'm not facing the grave

Lock the door
Throw away the key
Dreams are waiting
Needs creating
It’s liberating for me

Don't look down
Keep moving on
It’s destiny
Ready to be won

I'm gonna leave this town
It’s not for me
The ground is breaking
Hands are shaking
It’s my awakening

(Lord help me now)
I'm not givin’ up
(Don't wait up)
I'm not living up
(Lord help me now)
So just fill my cup
Get on up get on up now
(Lord help me now)
I'm not givin’ up
(‘Cause imma tear it down)
I'm not living up
(Tear it down)
So just fill my cup
Get on up get on up now
(Tear it down)
Don't wait up

Hey I'm living free stop
Tell me what you see stop
Me stop
He said she said we stop
Unlock me use the cage as a backdrop
Eyes on me my whole life is a mic drop
Out of the wild I got my fire from the lighting
King of the jungle as my grip is tightening
Look at my smile see sharp teeth are shining
Eyes dilate as my prey stops fighting
Did I deserve the treatment you gave me through all of the years I accept that maybe
Without the pain and the struggles that you put in my way see I wouldn't be the man that stands before you today
I had to learn to be heartless turn the light into darkness flip the switch on all the things that kept me back like a harness
The only way is up now gotta pick it up now left then a right combination gets a knockout

Don't wait up
I'm not coming home
I'm done chasing
I'm done wasting
I'm not facing the grave

Lock the door
Throw away the key
Dreams are waiting
needs creating
Its liberating for me

(Lord help me now)
I'm not givin’ up...
