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: Core
Mom is in the corner
slumped
a cigarette burning
Dad is on the couch
asleep
watching the TV

Gotta get some food
in this house
Gotta turn on the heat
I’ll be turning 10
tomorrow
The oldest of 3

Someone’s gotta
keep us all alive
It’s up to me
Someone’s gotta
keep us all alive
It’s up to me

I will not give up
I will not give up
I will not give up
I will not give up

And if I go
you’ve got to stay
we’ll be
together one day

The cold
it bites
the mind
A raging
sadness grows

They say I’m not
capable
I’ve tried to
show them
I’ve tried to
tell them
but they won’t see

I’m doing this on my own
without them
Trust me

you are not alone
you are not alone
you are not alone
you are not alone

And if I go
you’ve got to stay
we’ll be
together one day

Stood outside with a sign
I made
asking the city for
their spare change
I got enough for a
loaf of bread
Started again the next day
after bed

An older girl I met while she
was playing guitar
told me she’d
give me lessons
so I could earn more

It’s been a couple months
I’m getting good
enough to get us on our feet
while Mom is in
the corner drunk
and Dad is on
the couch asleep


I will not give up
I will not give up
I will not give up
I will not give up

And if I go
you’ve got to stay
we’ll be
together one day
Track Name: Soot
The salted air is waiting for you
You cover all your sores with perfume
You’re making clothing for your Hollywood Apocalypse

Laughing like the water falling of my back
Laughing like the fire falling of my back
Laughing like the water falling of my back
Laughing like the fire falling of my back

Delusion of comfort!
The illusion of care!

The searing plasma holds your arm
Your other prophets found their way home

What was so night clear in the evening
lost its way
A dry throat aching

You had enough
You had enough
You had enough
holding on

It’s not your trust
Not your trust
you’ve been acting on

Illusion of comfort
or of care
or ability to put your whole being
in another’s hands
They don’t know you
You didn’t care
You didn’t come prepared
You didn’t take the lessons
You didn’t respect the way

It doesn’t mean
it has to be
the end for you
This is a lesson
Track Name: Zero Gravity
Remember with me

Every layer has its own language
Every language has its own tone
Every layer is its own colour
Every colour its own song

Nn each place
each being and shape
has its own way to say
Every layer is its own story
and the story moves along

Living in rows
Dying in rows
The rose of the world
Look at your garden
what does it grow?

You got me feeling so red

You
You’ve got
You’ve got me
Feeling
so red

Up above here
Where we feed here
Up above
We’re free here

Up above you
where I feed you
Up above
We’re free Here

Underneath you
where I feed you
Underneath
We’re Free Here

You
You’ve Got
You’ve Got me
Feeling
so

Up above you
where I feed you
up above
We’re free here

Underneath you
where I feed you
Underneath
we’re free here

R.A.C.K. & Fire play
No hard limits
Black sheet gala day
We found a switch
a wild witch
dancing in the stream
of our own blood
We’re on our way
Consent is sexy
Execute the scene
This love from me
Oh hell!
I hope you grade it!

The seeds of oppression
are woven in the quilts
of our ancestors

Behold your oppressor
looks bigger
when you’re lying on the ground
looking up at them

Dethrone your oppressor
who is bigger when you’re lying on the ground
They’re looking down

Go on, go on, get up, get up!
Up off your knees!
Go on, go on, get up, get up
And face your fear!

The seeds of oppression are
woven in the quilt
of our ancestors

They passed ‘em down

Go on, go on, get up, get up!
Up off your knees!
Go on, go on, get up, get up
And face your fear!


excerpt from Mario Savio’s speech on the steps of Sprout Hall (UC Berkeley) 2 December 1964:
“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!”

fun fact: this was the speech that inspired us to design our “wrench in the Works” symbol in 2000.
