about

HUMANWINE

"HUMANWINE is music that dances between raindrops, sending up green shoots between the broken cobblestones of folk, punk, and open revolt. It is a soundtrack to broken rules and mutant genres, evoking a world that skips over the Age of Oil and all its cruelties, stitching together a patchwork of past and future, a do-it-yourself apocalypse that is strangely utopian."

Track Name: UnEntitled States of Hysteria
A violent disorder stakes claims of it's righteousness over the border
it feeds on those who eat up the bones of it's casualties
the momentum of each daily cycle of "you're not me"

YOU'RE NOT ME A burn for a burn is as useless as apathy
we must make choice through action no matter the fraction we stand for
gutting it's name and denouncing it's claims of "you're not me"

YOU'RE NOT ME

It's in your mind Travel through time
It's in your face forgotten place
It's in your hands Forgotten lands
I'm twisting and turning
I'm buning my insides
I'm breaking on fire,
"Woe!" she cries no more, for you!

Eyes watching in the dark like a song done well or a spell gone awry
and all the books were burned with any insight on how to fix the wrongs back to right
gottah gather all together all of us a re running scattered and we're pointing out that
you're not me
holding off your future dreams you'd rather scream in fear that the not-me party is marching on
not like it's the only one
time
here
everyday for many long years people die Iraqis lacking food and in health supplies
sanctioned by the brother with no compassion for the other
with one outstretched hand the other rapes the land
in the name of democracy, flag of hypocrisy,
war is second nature there we're quick to turn in our neighbor
the young have war in their eyes oh how this mighty nation cries
"You Witch!"
"Communist"
"Pinko"
"Terrorist"

YOU'RE NOT ME
Track Name: Big Brother
Maybe you're right
those steps behind
start and stop as you do

Hiding out of light
irises
reset as you move

Maybe in the bank they're watching
At your job they're watching
Television's watching
what your clone is watching
It's a blunt set up
under Caesar's lens
and the beast is watching
Everything

Maybe you weren't off
when you said
We're just slaving for the man
Bred in martial law,
veiled in plastic thought
of a secret means to ends

Maybe big
brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
Let 'em watch!!

What, are you gonna sit around and worry?
Chewing your life to its tomb
What, have you
given up on freedom
before they've taken it from you?
You're un happy and losing your mind
You're naked and weeping in the mall
Shiveringly asking,
"Why is everyone looking at me?!"

Arriving just in time
Here's the men in white
blurried through your tears then you
Roll off to rubber rooms

With doctors watching
and the cameras watching
and he watched all watching!

Even if the eye
on pyramids
Is keeping track of
Your every move
You can't contain your thoughts,
they're all you've got
Just go and do what you do!

So what if big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
big brother is watching
Let 'em watch!
Track Name: Fighting Naked
Step right up its your hero
Its your friend
It’ll save until the end
We’ll weed out the foes of our master plan
Guards grab that man
Who stands tall in front of the people
And says

Thieves come out
Of this mouth
Spreading lies

A one world plan
Where your blood dissolves in my hands
Encaustic sleeves
like a leash round your
right to abandon
I’ll haul you in tight
And crush you will
Make it easy to please me disease
The wells which drink
They smell like death

Thieves come out
Of this mouth
Spreading lies

Hypocritical fascist porno priest on the TV
Selling you shit you don’t need
Bony hands greedily eating up V.D. grab bags
“God Save this Man!”
Who got caught on the camera with his pants down
While we sing

Thieves come out
Of his mouth
Spreading lies

You’re safe in my hands
Which protect from foreign lands
Pre-emptive Warning you daily “fear-o-Meter” is rising
The tension is climbing
We’re in Your head
It’s the end of your worries
Securely the Patriot Slaves
I did say Act
Thieves come out
of my mouth
spreading lies
Track Name: Wake Up!
They crawl from the mouths and then fall to the ground out of sight
They burgle the heart of the child and fall them to sleep
By feeding them lies like a pill promising it’s alright

But never so broke is this newly sick joke
Delusions are spoiling the air that we breathe

And now it’s time
to draw the line
between the things
we hold up to this light
we’ve taken as gift
and the things deep inside
we once knew in
AWE.

So keep their pill tucked under your tongue
'till they leave Sizz it out quickly and rub the spit on your sleeve
Feeling your way out of bed in the dark There's no light

Crawl out of bed even in your nightclothes
Meet us outside where the sky greets the road

now it’s time
to draw the line
between the things
we hold up to this light
we’ve taken as gift
and the things deep inside
we once knew in
AWE.

Wake up wake up Don’t swallow the pill
Wake up wake up Your fear will kill
The thieves are crawling through the night
They’re here to twist your thoughts and sight
Wake up
Wake up
They’re by your bed
They’re flipping their lies up into the air While they tilt Your head

They told me my dreams were common disease
To prey to their god get down on my knees
The dollar in heaven says slavery is free
Wake up!

I felt lies pouring down my throat
then splash in my stomach which sent out a jolt
I now have a number in place of my name
A guaranteed role in their new world game
They show me friends
And who I should hate
Tossing out freedoms to keep us all safe
WAIT WAIT WAIT!
And for $19.95 you can get 20% more freedumb brand

Wake up wake up Don’t swallow the pill
Wake up wake up Your fear will kill
The thieves are crawling through the night
They’re here to twist your thoughts and sight

Wake up
Wake up

They’re in your head
Unless we open our eyes tonight We’ll end up dead

What’s so safe about war at large?
And how bout the way they put them in charge?
The large in charge will run the earth dry
Denying the choices of you and I

Wake up!
Track Name: Dim Allentown Cover Pt.I
Family built of blood and rust
find a place because we must
shelter our heads from the poisoned wind
squat or rot with the rest of our kin

Petrified tounges twisted and tied
reciting your ridiculous lies and
their minds a figment of itself
their hearts are relics on the shelf

The keepers of the spoils that leech of others toil
spilling blood for oil
these seeds are ours
A gala for Eris, lady of our chaos
children carve altars to you in your skin

Un-Warlike in our way of mind
we are bound to rouse and rise
those who still endure the sham
all of the orphans of our Uncle Sam
and they're raised inerudite
scorned from birth
they do the job better for half what they're worth
and their backs are broken but their hearts are pure
So leave your ego at the door

The tenders of the soil aren't loyal to the royal
the bubbles reached a boil
these seeds are ours
We'll take what we grew
we didn't plant it for you
Work for once cause these seeds are ours

Wrinkled fists secure the right to discern
which to to keep and witch to burn
and you see the world through onyx eyes
watch the world flip on it's side

answering...
answering...
"No!"...
answering...
"No!"

Family built of blood and rust
find a place because we must
shelter our heads from the poisoned winds
squat or rot with the rest of our kind

answering...
answering...
"No!"...
answering
"No!"

calm sooner or later later calm
Track Name: Epoch
Icing from a 1,000 years of snow the seed and watch them grow
honor and laughter around we can kill the bell
on our own ocean our mother will swallow us whole

Sometimes families change we have to make our own
Sometimes families made they take out their own
Not our own!!

Tak' tet u'hn stehl something that's outside of me
and seerling everdearling and far enough from it
With our hands making the dream
We're not helping it grow
made it some clothes
patches of thyme spent lying on the floor
and i tore up my arms and made them like wings
well, they could've been anything
Peace. Son a Bitch!
Why must you be this way?

I sing in an empty ocean shell and this is not my home
Only when ego is called can we judge our own
Only when ego is called can we judge our own
Sometimes families change we have to make our own
Sometimes families change and we create our own
Not our own!!!

Tak' tet u'hn stehl something that's outside of me
and seerling everdearling and far enough from it
With our hands making a dream
We're not helping it grow
we've made it some clothes
patches of thyme spent lying on the floor
and it tore up its arms and made them like wings
well, they could've been anything
Please! Son of a bitch.
Why must you be this way?

I sing from a thousand years ago, my song is not my own!
Track Name: Worthless Ode
There's not much left but a sign
where the crow sits and mocks your sorrows
of the dead, neatly lined and bumbling through time the stitch and paint dissolve
but the sign it lingers on while the corpses all await your visit
no more than 5 seconds long
As you fumble through your words and stumble over tongue

The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones
The houses of the bones
The houses of the bones got jumbled
They slip through earth, under dirt
A Jane becomes a John in mortem
"Just Seize the Day!" is all they say
to the living heartless walking dead
and to the hurt under dirt forgotten in the back of the room
"Just take my place!
This social grace is as Worthless as an Ode it's nothing to these Bones!"

The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones
The houses of the bones

They were in love, they were young and her father had refused their union
he had them killed their blood was spilled
when his daughter wouldn't marry another
their bodies lay miles away
both buried in their families' cemeteries
but soon one day they would lay with each other's head in hand
only if they crawled the land

The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones got jumbled
The houses of the bones
The houses of the bones

After their death without their breath
they make a pact with each other
forming plans to crawl under land so her bony hands could hold his forever
hold his forever
HOLD HIS FOR...

The houses of the bones got jumbled

rust in love not like some thing's above
to fear to fake while you hold
Evolve human
human instinct
there is more to life than war

Do you see at all?
Do they see at all?
Do we see at all?

Heads are rolling on the ground
Rather to fight than lay down

We objectify and sell the earth
until the other side of birth
And to each other jagged pins
out of our mouths
We object to these objects
they are frail little locksets
they are seizure while we leisure
guarding our will

Do you see at all?
Do they see at all?
Do we see at all?

Track Name: Rivolta Silenziosa
They sling our marrow like its fodder
Mortaring morticious brothers
We'll never get out of this place alive
if these walls these walls keep closing

into practiced chains of blather
Bubbling a thick blood lather
Washboard ribs and broken cribs
These walls these walls keep closing in

Nana na na na na

Fear just fell from a loaded sleeve
fluent in the tongue of greed
A master at the art of sleaze
who's walls Who's walls are a fiendish grin

of rotten desolation
Paranoid isolation
Fueling our blood stained machines
the bells of free-dumb liberty
the smell of gunshot bitter sweet

These walls these walls keep closing in
Oh where do we begin our dismantling?
We call on all to sing!
These walls keep closing in
Oh where do we begin our dismantling?
We call on all to sing!

Nana na na na na

Canisters of feigned dissent
They load our bodies into them
The prize surprise its eating at your eyes
and drawing down them shades

made out of skin
it's kin eating kin
Cogs living in the burning city
When will this day ever end?
Will the words from within break down this wall?
Our fall This wall!!

Will this dust ever settle
Even better now the sky is bent?
I got a a stomach full of fingernails
and another's femur on my head
Will this dust ever settle
Even better now the sky is bent?
I got a a stomach full of fingernails
and another's femur on my head

Eyeballs plug the mouths like hoses
scared of all the not-me noses
poking into our daydreams while in the distance glistening
that wall of bones that holds our tongues in
scared of all the taste bud rows of
hands that speak to you and me
that sign RIVOLTA SILENZIOSA!

These walls keep closing in
Oh where do we begin our dismantling?
We call on all to sing!
Track Name: When In Rome
When they say that time heals old wounds.
They don't say what they are thinking;
When in Rome; fall

When they say the time heals all wounds
They don’t say what they are thinking
When in Rome... Fall

Not allowed
You can’t see
The dead as they’re arriving
Many more
In the back are under flags and hiding

Makes you wonder
What they’re hiding

We are clawing
While we’re falling

From your eyes
Off the screen
You trust as truth providing
Out of Sight
Out of Mind
dumb and down a Nation decided
What is Truth?
Wanting proof
A swimming head full of lies!
Who’s to say
what is right?
Creating our own demise!

When we’re not allowed
Cause you can’t ask
Questions are treated as threats
against who
You resist
You refuse
We live on
Actions speak louder when done

From the ground up, it’s a round up

When you’re not allowed
Cause you can’t ask
Questions are treated as threats
Against who
We resist
We refuse
We live on
Long after we’re dead
What are you scared?
To lose?

This can be a safe place
Safe place to roam
