about

Nice Hooves Detroit, Michigan

Nice Hooves is a group of five people from Detroit who make music right now. Four members come from Detroit hardcore punk mainstay, The Armed. Aaron Jones, Randall Kupfer, Kenny Szymanski and Tony Wolski throw guitars, bass, drums and occasionally themselves directly at the crowd. All the while Dave Graw – formerly of Detroit’s Bang Bang! – sings, screams and often rants. ... more

Track Name: Hand of Man
pull the alarm
emergency
said with such urgency
pull the alarm
a sky no birds
an earth no wolves
emergency
said with such urgency
sound the alarm
it was bound to fall
got too big to stand
couldn't help itself
the hand of man
emergency
said with such urgency
sound the alarm
Track Name: Heavy Seas
fuck coming up for air
go for a swim
in a cloud more smoke than wind
go for a swim
what a joke we'll laugh and grin
when we all go for a swim
how far to go
having vertigo
how far to go
how far
fuck coming up for air
fall in
we've gone too far again
fall in
to fill the void avoid the hidden
when we all go for a swim
there's no deep end
it's all deep
how far to go
having vertigo
how far to go
how far
there's no deep end
it's all deep
Track Name: Roots
we would hang out on rooftops
and drink with the moon
it's a half severed circle
but it will be full soon
stumble down dark alleyways
and watch the human machine advance
it's about to get dicey
speak up while you've got the chance
your last dance
let's see how deep those roots grow
bet they're the same above as below
spent the night on the basement floor
cold and hard and close to the core
you can pretend you're partying
i'll pretend i'm dead instead
that day i stopped dancing
i drank the moon red
you can pretend you're partying
and i'll lay down and play dead
let's see how deep those roots grow
bet they're the same above as below
above as below
Track Name: Play Jazz
what is our demand
well what do you know
i can't sit still for long
i can't explode
all this nothingness
penetrates no space
just maintain the course
steady as she waits
the most yielding thing
will overcome
fall in rhythm with
the rising sun
standing in the dark light
bleeds define the space
just maintain the course
steady as she waits
ain't no power like that, power like that
i said there ain't no, power like that, power like that
nothingness no space
no action to take
i've been awake for days
i've been awake
hold hands, lock arms
form lines and rows
just maintain the course
steady as she goes
nature has no need to knock
i see no need, we're coming in
yeah we're coming in
ain't no power like that, power like that
i said there ain't no, power like that, power like that
ain't no power like that, power like that
i said there ain't no, power like that, power like that
Track Name: White Knuckle
quit trying to hold on so tight
it will never get here
things tend to change at night
so quit trying to hold on so tight
quit trying to hold on so tight
it's made men bitter
things tend to change at night
so quit trying to hold on so tight
quit trying to hold on so tight
stars will never fall in line
it's time to fight or flight
so quit trying to hold on so tight
quit trying to hold on so tight
it's pretty hard to put out
this fire burns at night
so quit trying to hold on so tight
quit trying to hold on
quit trying to hold on, hold on
quit trying to hold on
Track Name: Right to be Paranoid
i see those teeth you're grinding
behave as if you are being watched
just hanging by a thread now
behave as if you are being watched
i have a healthy fear of flying
behave as if you are being watched
just hanging by a thread now
behave as if you are being watched
i see you on the corner
watch out the ground will fall
it's written all across your face
backed up against the wall
hold on to those bags tight
like the dead haunting your brain
just hanging by a thread now
just hanging by a thread now
i see you
the eye sees you
you're being watched
black spilled across the billboards
behave as if you are being watched
turning life into resistance
behave as if you are being watched
so that's how it began
tacking against the wind
just hanging by a thread now
just hanging by a thread now
i see you
the eye sees you
you're being watched
you're being watched
Track Name: Warpaint Is Not A Mask
war paint is no mask my friend
it's a sign
it's a sign of reaching your end
you were right
night after night
there's no end in sight
business as usual
business as usual
war paint is no mask my friend
it's a sign
it's a sign of reaching your end
you were right
night after night
there's no end in sight
business as usual
business as usual
we suspect and indeed we know
that no one can control
we suspect and indeed we know
we know
we suspect and indeed we know
that no one can control
and that there's no one in control
you were right
night after night
there's no end in sight
business as usual
business as usual
you were right
it's night
there's no end in sight
night after night
night after night
Track Name: Priority Adjustment
i got to get on a plane
where doesn't matter to me
out of here
in case you've been wondering
it's been so long so where do i began
out of here
we can all run away
but it will run with us the whole way
i love rock & roll
it's hard on the heart
but it's good for the soul
paying taxes, well adjusted
paying taxes, well adjusted
i got to get on a plane
where doesn't matter to me
out of here
cause what’s a person to do
the man in charge just ain't got a clue
out of here
sweeten the traps with wine
living in the great decline
paying taxes, well adjusted
paying taxes, well adjusted
paying taxes, well adjusted
paying taxes, well adjusted
i love rock & roll
it's hard on the heart
but it's good for the soul
Track Name: Ernest
digging a hole
no purpose at all
nothing to fill it
a cup too full
fatigue set in
fatigue set in
can't stop the moving
a bridge too tall
don't call me goodnight
don't call me at all
fatigue set in
fatigue set in
back breaks, shoulders ache, the weight
back break, shoulders ache, my way
back breaks, shoulders ache, the weight
back break, shoulders ache, my way
my way
the distance between us
has narrowed with time
get with the program
fall in line
back breaks, shoulders ache, the weight
back break, shoulders ache, my way
back breaks, shoulders ache, the weight
back break, shoulders ache, my way
my way
Track Name: Same Song
their time, their plan
more shit i don't understand
all members of the ku klux klan
more kids to vietnam
bad times are coming and you bought a gun
again, again
bad times are coming and you brought a gun
again, again
for all time
story of my time
their time, their hand
same shit i don't understand
same song i don't give a damn
more kids to vietnam
still fighting in vietnam
bad times are coming and you bought a gun
again, again
bad times are coming and you brought a gun
again, again
for all time
story of my time
Track Name: New Body
how can you hurt
what's inside
this beasts frigid breath
blankets the earth
and it's going to be
an eternal winter
i am the eye
and i sound like this
i want a new body
one resistant to need
i need need
i lost the night
trying to find
crippled and blood drained
pathetic little cog
and it's going to be
an eternal winter
i am the eye
and i sound like this
i want a new body
one resistant to need
i need need
clenched fists, contorted bodies
with ghoulish sunken eyes
working hard for your money
but you're barely alive
you're not what you own
you're not what you own
you're not what you own
you're not what you own
i'm not what i own
i'm not what i own
i'm not what i own
Track Name: Stillness More Than Action
rare indeed are those who are still
rare indeed are those who are silent
stillness more than action
silence more than words
this ones for the wild
this ones for the wild
