Four Words 01:38
Oh how horrible oh what lies Feel the burn of the cuffs that cut ties Good speaker weak jury good lawyer truths blurry {I am not a guilty man} “I am the victim” 4 words I can’t stand They took my child away, now that it’s all over, there’s going to be hell to pay. I am the victim abused by my partner in crime the one carried the light of my life. Oh daughter my child you must be confused. No child should have to deal with this parental abuse. False imprisonment destroyed our time together. I’m sorry your mother is such a liar. I can’t stand her face I’m gonna fucking bash it in
Hellish dogs attack anything that brings something new Sheepless shepards die waiting for their stars to align Where in the sky do you search? Where on the ground do you lay? Finding direction Without belief In some omnipotence Is a path to disease Burning bushes come to mind Empirical eyes can be blind Where do you stand? Are you a mountain or a man? Man said all the tearful eyes Then why the facade of great rocks?
Black and white no gray space Is how you all fucking believe You Try to police the scene You try to police everything Hardcore drones Every single lyrical theme I've heard it all before All politics you spit is such a fucking bore Exploring thoughts: worthy of death Never admit your ignorance Hardcore drones repeat the known
What's this to you To be superior Or to be underfoot Romantic crystal palace Recurring ideas Left in ruin No romance No friendship Just my own fucking fiction Just my own fucking story How do we go for so long without figuring out what life's about happiness is a wolf in sheep skin You strive and strive towards slothful delight A Meaningful callused scarred journey doesn't sound too promising When everything that matters to you is only short lived infatuation I'm vibrating losing oxygen fighting feelings life's suffering


NMZ is excited to team up with distinctive Chicago hardcore act Porcupine. We will be releasing their latest effort, "The Underground Man" EP on cassette. With a sound that falls somewhere between the blurred lines of genres, "The Underground Man" brings four unrelenting tracks of brutal emotion.
