"Twist The Knife (slowly)" as written by and Shane Thomas/harris Embury....
Gut level, below it all.
Out of duty - just here.

Feeling like a knife's being twisted in the hole of how it is.

False hope, an inch of pride that died when I left to hide from non stop battering of conditioned opinion.

Rest assured but not assured, all is well, but I think we've dealt with the fear for far too long.

Unborn suffer the norm.
Born to this - I think not!
I stand against till the shit drops.

We see all but do nothing, in the hole of "How it is".

    General CommentThis isnt death metal at all! This is what we in England call "Grindcore". Love this tune, Barmey is one of the greatest guys around! BARNEY GREENWAY FOR PRIME MINISTER!

    General CommentBuddy, so just because you English call it Grindcore, that means it isnt death metal? riiiiiight.
    Napalm Death are Death Metal, and this song, like all their others, has an obvious meaning to it, I dont need to elaborate.

    General CommentNapalm Death's earlier stuff is classified as grindcore. Their later stuff is death metal, ie The Code is Red, Enemy of the Music Business. BUt listne to Scum and From Enslavement to Obilteration, that IS grindcore.
