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: Submerge
Alive alive
we are

Why don’t we
go down to where the river
bends a knee?
A found forever in an
aqua seed a rusted relic
from a far away gone dream

Alive alive
we are


We're splashing
into the surface
of what we can see
So let’s go deeper
and we’ll be just be
It is a dream and we can
breathe beneath the water

Alive alive
we are
Track Name: Current
Yemaya
Lya mi
Mother
washes
A waking solace

Sound the call of possibility again
and far be your reaches
past the beaches of the sane
to where
stranglings sing out songs
that can not be named
and the farthest we can go
is where we've ever been!

Visite me
sob o mar
Ou les incendies
sont en feu
Far beneath the waves
is this place!
Track Name: Gyre
Five liquid houses
are our home
Where ‘er our calling
‘round whispering globe

Tell me - Tell me what you see
Come on - Show me
Show me where you’ve been
I want to be where
where water is clean
and the tide rises up
to dance with me

echo echo

Show me show me
what you see
skimming the surface
debris debris debris

How?!
And When we take
it back
A floating Mass
of blasted plastic
They’re are 8 continents
if you
count
our
trash

echo echo

Five liquid houses
are our home

Where ‘er our calling
‘round whispering globe

Tell me - Tell me what you see
Come on - Show me
Show me where you’ve been
I want to be where
where water is clean
and the tide rises up
to dance with me
Track Name: Silt
You are a kin
to where I’ve ever known

Is there a word for
consanguinity of souls?

I feel as though that
would apply to you and I
bathing in the waters
of all life

Entire breath
adept ebb and flow
Perfected lush provender
afterglow
Elan vital -
a continuity
of what simply comes
so naturally
Track Name: Hoarfrost
Holding on to the ice
Holding on for Yoooooouurrr life
Holding on to what’s left of a fantasy
Holding on to the ice
Holding on for Yoooooouurrr life
Holding on to what’s left of a fantasy

Fear is all about
Look around you’ll see it
Fear is only an illuuuuuuuusssssssioooon

Holding on to the ice
holding on for yoooooouuuurrrrr life
Holding on to what’s left of your sanityyyyyyyyyyyyy

Fear is all about
Look around you’ll see it
Fear is only an illuuuuuuuusssssssioooon

Disguised as Doubt
Disguised as Rage
Disguised as Sadness
Disguised as Shame

Track Name: Pawn to Queen
I see you fancy the dancing 
You’re dancing around 
what you know is the truth
Yes

You’re spinning and whirling
Your world is unfurling
You used to be fighting 
for what you believe

You’re too good to give up
You’re not going out like this 
'hard life' and 'you are doomed'

You say we are pawns
in this chess
bored of life
We all know what
happens when
they reach
the other side

We are going to
the other side
We are going to
the other side
We are going to
the other side

Fall on your face
and you’ll hear
angels sing!

We are going to
the other side
We are going to
the other side
We are going to
the other side

Fall on your face
and you’ll hear
angels sing!
Track Name: Mirrored
See the water and call it water
Hear the air and call it air
Taste the earth and call it earth
Smell the fire and call it fire
Touch the divine and know it is you

You are stronger than your chains

One who says there is
a power much greater than yourself
of which you are separate from;
seeks to isolate you from your own
indivisibility - to insure your reliance on
an exterior structured existence
that does not serve your progress and
states exactly the opposite of the truth

The body's senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch
can be useful allies yet dangerous masters
when navigating a physical presence in a multidimensional realm
and our realm is just that

See the water and call it water
Hear the air and call it air
Taste the earth and call it earth
Smell the fire and call it fire
Touch the divine and know it is you

You are stronger than your chains
Track Name: Kill a stone
I knew a fish
who cried more than she meant it
She met an awful fate
and spoke in tonic accents

Her friends told her BEWARE
still she didn’t give a care
One fathom at a time
toward the feigned abundant

Her heart was hard to please
It was some kind of disease
We found her body there
beneath the Dragon Market

Who fears a face
so bravely painted
one long day
tintown the inner harvest

Kill a stone
and who’ll be near?
One call for the
girl who sang at the Dragon Market!

Seed in a far away home
all array of one!
I knew a fish
of all who are
dreaming

When I found you
I stand screaming,
“I knew a fish
of all who are
dreaming!”
Track Name: Trine
