Lyrics:

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

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."
