about

Nate Parrish returns with his most explosive, culturally relevant song to date. Check out Nate Parrish and listen to this song at full volume. This is the final IVM Label Release.

About the Song:

More and more it seems like we are being bombarded with propaganda disguised as news in an effort to recruit us to some political party or movement.

With promises of power and a more desirable society, we pledge our allegiance to movements and allow our lives to be used as weapons. The irony is, while those giving the marching orders hide away behind gates and screens, we fight and destroy our own neighborhoods. This is a protest song. A refusal to be used as ammunition against my fellow man in a war for power.

"Those behind the trigger only have the power we give them
And the ones that call the shots rely on ammunition
If unity is something that we’re really fighting for,
then why do we keep settling for settling scores?"


Bio:

Nate Parrish is an American songwriter / musician hailing from Bakersfield, Ca. Having been involved in several bands and musical projects over the last few years, Nate has finally stepped out on his own and launched his solo career. His sound can be described as mix of classic and pop punk sounds such as Social Distortion, Hot Water Music and Face to Face mixed a dash of Bruce Springsteen.

lyrics

They recruit us
With militant media
They say they’ll fight by us
But we’re just the lead in the gun
A war for election

I’m not your bullet I’m not your blade
Im not marching in Your brigade
I’m not your bullet and I’m not your blade
I’m not a weapon in the war you wage

They divide us
Assign affiliation
They claim they are just like us
The zip codes don’t match up
They light the fuse and then they run

I’m not your bullet I’m not your blade
Im not marching in Your brigade
I’m not your bullet and I’m not your blade
I’m not a weapon in the war you wage

Those behind the trigger only have the power we give them
And the ones that call the shots rely on ammunition
If unity is something that we’re really fighting for,
then why do we keep settling for settling scores?

I’m not your bullet I’m not your blade
Im not marching in Your brigade
I’m not your bullet and I’m not your blade
I’m not a weapon in the war you wage
