about

ENZIGURI The Bronx, New York

Enziguri is a 5-piece punk/hxc outfit from the Bronx. Since its inception, Enziguri has aimed to perform as many shows as possible, and in the process became a relevant part of the NY scene with their 2015 "Self-Titled" EP. After a stretch of member changes, Enziguri has risen from the ashes of relative inactivity & will be releasing a full length LP titled "Uptown Boogie Down" on 4/22/2017. ... more

Track Name: Empire State (Die Hipster Scum)
Cash rules everything around me,
Bash fools who say "it's astounding."
Families gettin run out the counties,
The working class is taking a pounding!

Transplants coming in from the mid west,
Living off of their parents checks,
Treating NYC with disrespect.
Hipsters spread disease while we slept,
Rocking in goatees & V-Necks,
Don't mean much to me, disconnect.
Landscape keeps changing, indirect,
I'm down on my knees, take effect.

I can't believe this happened,
I can't believe this happened,
I can't believe what's going on,
In my own neighborhood.

The strong, the brave,
have been depraved.
New York has seen some better days.
We all survived through the decay,
Outrageous price to ride the trains.
When all is said and all is done,
Our city is still number one.
Can't walk away I'm having fun,
I'll find my place here in the sun.

It's bitter sweet, city that never sleeps.
It lives in me & underneath these streets!
It smells like weed,
dog shit On the concrete,
and in my teens I never thought,
I'd be feeling this way,
Like something's missing.
This cities changing,
But I'm still the same.

It's the Empire,
It's the Empire State.
Been through hell fire,
And looked it in its face (2x)

I can't believe this happened,
I can't believe this happened,
I can't believe what's going on,
In my own neighborhood.
Track Name: Mountain Top
Wow, things have changed
We came, reclaimed
Through all the pain
And bad days.

Our bodies drained
Sunshine and rain
Replay the dates
Frame by frame.

Eager and brave
Our hearts displayed
March on with faith
With PMA.


I'm at the top of the mountain
AND I WON'T LEAVE.

Somehow I made it, astounded
MEANS MORE TO ME.

My mind is no longer clouded
FULL CLARITY.

Searching for something, I found it
SERENITY.

Reach to the sky for a god
Who's not there
Seek and you'll find answers
To doubts and fears.

Pierce through the night
Shine so bright and so clear
Keep up the fight cause it's us
verses them.

All of my scars
Proof life is hard
Struggle is ours
TAKING CHARGE.

Almost fell far
Put behind bars
Scumbag at large
LOCK YOUR DOORS.

Fight, broke my jaw
Ate through a straw
That's who I was
WITH NO CAUSE.

Get drunk or buzzed
Get hit for fun
Drugs, booze & blood
NO REGARD.

I don't need your bleeding heart
Opinion on my fucking life
I've been knocked down and got up
So don't you even fucking try
I'm the one that's in control now
Until I put down the mic
I'm alive and kicking
You can talk all that shit when I die!

Sitting alone in your room
by the phone
Because nobodies gonna
Depend on you.
Wait for a call but
it won't come at all
Because in this life
No one owes you shit!

I've tried my best
Put my will to the test
Made my mistakes
Took what I could get.
Accepted my flaws
Grabbed at napkins
And straws
In the end it made
No difference.

You'll drown in your lies
Then you'll realize.
Your own selfish pride
Will be your demise.
Staring from the sky
View from such great heights.
Free fall out of sight
No one stays at the top.
