Napalm Death - Twist The Knife (Slowly) Lyrics




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 thin not!
I stand against till the shit drops.

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

  19. Andy Szwejda

    Goro kicking the $*** out of all those unknown fighters brought me here.

  20. XenoIdo

    I remember buying this on cassette when I was 12 back in 1993, and only because I knew the record guy that worked in the basement (where all the non-popular music was like punk [real punk pre-1987], death/speed metal, trip-hop, alternative, techno, psychobilly, etc) and that we shared likeness for many of the same groups, that he would sell me albums you normally had to be 18 to buy and music stores when the "explicit" label started showing up (thanks again Tipper Gore & Nancy Reagan) because they were very strict on not selling to minors and demanding for ID.
    I got so many great death metal and hardcore punk albums from that store it's sick, I miss you Andy from the old Music Baron basement in Winnipeg....

    Real time

    XenoIdo 12 years old wow! I was 14 in 1994 when I bought this on cassette. Had to mow a coupe lawns to get it

    Jhonny Rage

    Por que tratan de expresar y canalizar su ira a través de la música

  50. George18798

    Death Metal stuff they did in 90's is the best in their discography

  51. Wild Bill

    fear factory could have been death metal this reminds me of songs from soul of a new machine! sounds a lot like Burton C. Bell.

    pissinginthemainstream

    Wild Bill When i first heard the song i actually thought it was early FF

    Tomislav Terek

    actually i was wondering when demanufacture came out why they changed the tone. i was prefering the soul of new machine more...

    Cristián Siege

    mark barney of the first napalm death was influence to burton of fear factory they themselves f f have admitted it greetings friends. that form of vowels of napalm death began many years before fear factory, guys ,Both bands are great but I prefer napalm death 👍

  52. Tha_SilverBlack_16

    Ah, the classics....

  53. faizoscar

    my head grew nails after listening to this

  54. Rus Rider

    Безусловно, лучший альбом напалма

  55. Julio Sanesgarc

    Awesome start: a waterfall of voice from a wall of guitars. In my opinión one of their best records.

  56. Ofir Harlev

    turns out after about 20 years since I've first heard this song as a child, the lyrics are really deep and righteous.
    "unborn suffer the norm" no truer words ever said.

  57. scrimm_bloody_gore_

    Mortal Kombat y'all

    Thanks to the OST I heard Napalm Death for the first time in this track. :D

    MrRolyat98

    The scene where Goro is kicking the crap out of all challengers.

    Javier Hernández

    Lol! Nice combination. Love it!

  58. Sausage Fingers

    Like a lot of kids who bought the Mortal Kombat soundtrack, this was my first exposure to death metal. I had no idea what the fuck was going on musically, but I dug it. It still took me going through a thrash phase in high school before really appreciating death metal, but I digress. This song fucking rules and should have become the template for death metal going into the late 90's/early 00's. Instead everybody started doing that Gothenburg shit or tending towards deathcore's endless breakdown model. This is atmospheric and rhythmically interesting while still being brutal as shit.

    Seven Alex

    Danny Brown lol

    senseipunk

    Mortal Kombat soundtrack was my very first cd back in 95, man I was not expecting this kind of music on it but fuck me if it did not change my life for the better, for better music compared to the rap and r n b garbage I used to listen to. Metalhead forever \m/

    Eduardo Pereira

    Dude! Me too! When I first heard this I have to admit that it was too brutal for my young mind at the time, I was just starting to get into metal. It's still one of my favorite songs of all time and now I'm experienced enough to truly appreciate it more. I have to thank the makers of the Mortal Kombat soundtrack for being so awesome.

    Eduardo Pereira

    Holy shit, this was my first CD as well, I kid you not! Just like you brother my musical world was opened up to a new horizon of awesomeness, I never went back to rap crap or pop ever again.

  63. AKdashillgore1

    This is the first metal song i ever heard. i was about 5 years old, and just found it again. Napalm Death for life.

    Jon Sigh

    Try the video DEICIDE, conviction.

  64. Brian Nmezi

    This song made me a metalhead. Thank you Napalm Death.

    Steve

    Holy shit what an introduction! Mine was Trial By Fire by Testament, god-tier thrash song but this is heavier by a long shot. This same song was on a wakeboard video called Switch around the same time Mortal Kombat came out, those were the days

  65. Andres Carrero Cardenas

    a commercial of mtv bring me here

    Joseph Kataina

    Dalshok

    +RoleModelTV wait, so he's not saying, "all will suffer"?

    RoleModelTV

    (2 years old comment)...uhm - the REAL lyrics are "Unborn suffer! Unborn suffer! Unborn suffer the norm"...but back then I was talkin' about misleading lyrics...long story, man.
