The single follows up I’m a Wreck, which Nate released earlier this year. The singer, songwriter, and guitarist has a history of skills honed through years playing with Worth Dying For and Kutless, and that same work ethic is carrying him through consistently delivered punk rock solo material.
“Bullets and Blades” is particularly timely. “This is a protest song,” Nate explains. “A message to those trying to divide us that we will not be used as ammunition in your war for power. Our allegiance lies in the kingdom of God.”
The chorus exclaims:
“I’m not your bullet, I’m not your blade
I’m not marching in
I’m not your bullet and I’m not your blade
I’m not a weapon in the war you wage.”
