"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: White Lead
The lead is placed in a vessel
within a vessel filled with vinegar
Another vessel filled with sugar, water and yeast is placed in a room
The room is closed so the action can happen
It takes weeks
Replace the vinegar every 29 days
Replace the yeast compound when the water stops bubbling
The yeast is dead

The white lead hand held the raven and the Raven held the key

The combined action of the acetic acid vapors,
heat and carbon dioxide from the yeast consuming the sugar
and water vapor in the air
slowly transforms the lead into basic lead carbonate
The white powder breaks off in sheets
and is scraped from the remaining lead
Replace the yeast compound when the water stops bubbling
The yeast is dead
Repeat this process until the lead completely dissolves
into white powder

Fall off away

In a larger vessel place the coarse white powder,
a mixing medium - such as rocks and water
Stir this mixture for several hours and strain

Shed the layers of you
Shed the layers of you - you are trapped by

What subsides to the bottom of the vessel is ceruse
It’s dried, mixed with oil and ready for you to use

One is all is all
is one is all
Shed the layers of you
Shed the Layers of You

Lead changes the shape of the protein molecule
so that it cannot perform its task
Lead accumulates in the body
which makes it difficult to ascertain which levels are safe

Track Name: Allegiance
Air don’t care
what nation’s flags
it waves all banners
just the same

The air don’t care
whose mouth it feeds
it fills the lungs
of enemies
and families
the same

We’re all kin

Air don’t see
your territories or
properties or
lines of man

Air don’t care
what breath it serves
will be your last
or be your first
out at death
and in at birth

We’re all kin

The air don’t care for
the troubles of man

Air will bring you
xylyl bromide
lead and carbon monoxide

Air will bring you
breath of ancients
flowing through us

Air will bring you
churning vortices
decaying autumn breeze
petrichor and memories

We’re all kin

The air don’t care for
the troubles of man

Track Name: Levity

Tears to lay on a falling star
Year of a morning filled with love
