MUSIC BREAK: Don Dokken’s solo album Up From The Ashes – GIVE IT UP!

I just discovered this song and I had to share it with you guys.  Of course, he’s right and knows what the hell he’s talking about but the first part is kind of comical in my opinion.  This was Don’s first solo outing after Dokken broke up the first time.  It’s from the 1990 album/CD UP FROM THE ASHES.  Enjoy!  And yeah, it has some explicit lyrics.

Lyrics:

Intro:

And then God created the world and he said this is good.

Then he created man and he said I fucked up.

In one man’s mind, we could have anything
In one man’s life, we could lose everything

Look to the sky for what the future would bring to me
‘Cause when it’s all said and done
Who’s gonna put away the gun
So, give it up
Stop all your fighting, yeah, yeah
So, give it up
It’s my world
We’re dancing with destruction
Just one more chance knocks opportunity
But it won’t wait if we don’t find the key
Listen to me, I’ve had enough of the sorrow and pain
‘Cause when it’s all said and done
Who’s gonna put away the gun
So, give it up
Stop all your fighting, yeah, yeah
So, give it up
It’s my world
BRIDGE
We’re dancing with destruction
We’re dancing with destruction
SOLO
Give it up
Stop all your fighting, yeah, yeah
So, give it up
It’s my world
We’re dancing with destruction
So, give it up (don’t fuck it up for me.)


Caveat:  Remember this was 1990, Don’s a peaceful kind of guy, but I don’t believe he’s suggesting disarming Americans.

Plus I looked at a dozen lyric sites and no one got the lyrics just right so listen closely to the song.
