Won't stand down lyrics

[Muse premiered their new single on January 13, 2022.]


I never believed that I would concede and let someone trample on me
You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but you were just gaslighting me
I've opened my eyes, and counted the lies, and now it is clearer to me
You are just a user, and an abuser, living vicariously

I never believed that I would concede and get myself blown asunder
You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but now you have pushed me under
I've opened my eyes, and counted the lies, now it is clearer to me
You are just a user, and an abuser, and I refuse to take it

[Chorus:]
I Won't stand down
I'm growing stronger
Won't stand down
I'm owned no longer
Won't stand down
You've used me for too long,
now die alone

Now I'm coming back, a counterattack,
I'm playing you at your own game
I'm cutting you out, a shadow of doubt
Is gonna hang over your name.
I've opened my eyes, I see your disguise
I will never see you the same
I know how to win before you begin
I'll shoot you before you take aim.

Now I'm coming back, a counterattack
A psychological war
I'm cutting you in, I'm under your skin
Now I'm gonna settle the score
I've opened my eyes, I see your disguise
I will never see you the same
I know how to win before you begin
I'll shoot you before you take aim.

[Chorus:]
Won't stand down
I'm growing stronger
Won't stand down
I'm owned no longer
Won't stand down
You've used me for too long,
now die alone

[Chorus:]
Won't stand down
I'm growing stronger
Won't stand down
I'm owned no longer
Won't stand down
You've used me for too long,
now die alone.
