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

Big Brother 02:25
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!

Not Me says: Step right up it's your hero It's 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 En-caustic 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 YerYerOwns say: Thieves come out Of His mouth Spreading lies Hypocritical fascist porno priest on the TV Selling you shit you don’t need Bony hands greedily eating up VD 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 (Narrator flies over for book keeping) Narrator says: As it feeds on your waste of flesh haggard laughing all the way Hold you until the day Hordes say: Hold Yourself Down! Narrator says: Down the hill you can barely see through the dead debris wind - but bodily Narrator & Hordes together say: Bring in the Hordes! Narrator says: Who feed on your fear your screams So you start running Will you ever stop Narrator and & Hordes together say: feeding them? (Narrator flies away to another Burning City to continue reporting on the Not-Me, YerYerowns and Hordes of fer which spread rapidly consuming the population with distractions to keep their eyes off of their rights they are giving away freely, under duress)

Wake Up! 04:49
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!

Take that deadbeat sailor's body toss it overboard Laugh as the lazy stowaway swims to shore Will he sink? Will he swim? The beasts will have their feast tonight they're frenzied by the song we sing and smell the fear inside you. Thought you'd hide, Parasite, well it's time for you to earn your ride. Simple all you had to do was use your full potential!

Pique 04:59
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

Epoch 04:42
I sing in an empty ocean shell and this is not my home 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 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 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? Icing from a 1,000 years of snow the seed and watch them grow 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 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 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!

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...

Trust 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? Sauyeigh Leighthon Sauyeigh 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?

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!! (Lyrics omitted from this version) 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 (end of omitted drum jam and omitted lyrics) 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!

When In Rome 05:47
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

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."
