“Those behind the trigger only have the power we give them
And the ones that call the shots rely on ammunition
And if unity is something that we’re really fighting for,
then why do we keep settling for settling scores?”
This is the question punk songwriter Nate Parrish asks at the heart of his new single “Bullets and Blades” (Indie Vision Music). Nate writes, “as humans, we have a built in need for acceptance, and a need to belong to something bigger than ourselves, the problem is that we too often choose to side with movements that just use us as ammunition in a war for power”.
Nate continues, “this song is basically my declaration that I will not fall for mainstream media manipulation tactics, I will not put my faith in a political party, and I will not be used as a weapon against my brothers and sisters”.
Bullets and Blades is now available on all streaming platforms as well as at https://www.nateparrish.com and features guest musicians Ethan Luck (Relient K, Supertones, Demon Hunter), Thomas Freckleton (Silent Planet) and Chris Bellamy (Mike Lee music).
