about

"Still Standing" is part groove, part rap*, part unmistakeable Mad Maggies fusion. This tune says something about resilience.

When asked how he is doing Mad Maggies guitarist GDub pretty much always answers, "Still standing."

Like so many of us, he's been through a lot. And he didn't let it get him down.

This one is for him.



* from Wiki: Stylistically, rap occupies a gray area between speech, prose, poetry, and singing.

lyrics

_____________________
STILL STANDING

After beating the odds
After tempting the fates
After pushing his luck
across a dozen states

After changing direction
After reading the signs
After steering clear of trouble
When he hit hard times
After all of that?
Where’s he at?


After rising to the task
After being let down
After keeping his head
while the madness spun around

After speaking his mind
After suffering fools
After feeling the heat
But playing it cool
After all of that?
Yeah


He’s still standing, standing. The man’s still standing.
Two feet on the ground
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
As the world goes round
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
Two feet on the ground
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
You can’t keep him down


After paying the price
For holding his own
After doing his best
And working to the bone

After drawing the line
After catching a clue
After chasing his dreams
Now he’s living a few
After all of that?
Yeah

He’s still standing, standing. The man’s still standing.
Two feet on the ground
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
As the world goes round
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
Two feet on the ground
He’s still standing, standing The man’s still standing.
You can’t keep him down
