David Dallas – Don't Flinch lyrics

They say the hard headed will never learn
He said the hell with that my name will forever burn
In the history of this town and the next
Just got a fresh batch of ink tatted on his neck
To recollect when we met but we kinda been
Much older than thirteen, had some growing dreams
Of being pros on the deck, had a birdhouse
We used to mock people's gig, we were the worst out
Turned out a little different for him than me
'Cause even then he dealt with things that we didn't see
And little me, I could leave while enough was learned
But not him, if he felt that disrespect was shown
Let it be known, he was swinging on you on sight
Going for broke, we'd be breakin' it up tryna tell him it's just jokes
He'd be like "I'm not fuckin' laughin'. Fuck that cunt"
No affect, must of been ambitious through that punch
Even if his face swole uo
Still ready to scrap if one of the dudes boy's tried to bold up
Ain't no hold up, na, ain't no hold up Sway
Still remember gettin' told one day

Don't flinch
Don't flinch
If you get the news, no tears don't act like a bitch
Tell 'em don't flinch
Don't flinch
If the drama comes, we ain't ever givin' up an inch

Don't flinch
Don't flinch
If you get the news, no tears don't act like a bitch
Tell 'em don't flinch
Don't flinch
If the drama comes, let the drama come, it's what it is

It's what it is
Got himself a couple kids ain't even 23, knows what the struggle is
Young misses at home while he's workin' double shifts
Tryna make ends meet, tryna cover it
Seemed like this whole dad thing mellowed him out
Used to tell me "fuck this underground shit, start selling out,
Get this money 'cause you never know what's 'round the corner,
Fuck being cool, cool doesn't feed your daughter"
I said "aight bro" told me he would keep in touch
But 'round then was when we started not to see him much
I guess that there was things he would keep from us
If I could go back, I'd tell him start speaking up
Word start leakin' that his old lady's pretty sick
That on the low maybe him and his middy split
Figured I should take a trip 'round
No answer at the front door so let myself in through the lounge
Heard a bit of sound comin' from the kitchen
Like glass bottles being put down and Nelly on the system
When it came in to vision
The bros alone at the table with like half the house missin'
Said she left took the kids to her fam in Gisborne
Hole in the wall where it's probably been kicked in
Lookin' like a time bomb tickin'
Off his head talkin' 'bout how he's not trippin'
Sayin' he can never be a victim
"A man handles problem on his own, he don't need no one to fix 'em"
I said "askin' for help is okay"
He looked me in the eyes and I remembered that thing he used to say

Don't flinch
Don't flinch
If you get the news, no tears don't act like a bitch
Tell 'em don't flinch
Don't flinch
If the drama comes, we ain't ever givin' up an inch

Don't flinch
Don't flinch
If you get the news, no tears don't act like a bitch
Tell 'em don't flinch
Don't flinch
If the drama comes, let the drama come, it's what it is
