lyrics

I'm sitting on a sofa with a mirror in the middle,
Spewing sanctity and solace & a modicum of spittle,
With the oldest of the junkies reassessing random violence,
& the boldest & the cruelest falling into bitter silence.
There's a cancer causing agent dressing stylishly in leather.
He's insipid & unflinching & insidiously clever.
He's a rat, the little fucker, & he'll sell you out for trifles,
And his uniform is Dramamine & Buddhas selling rifles.
I listened to his orders & I met him at the station.
He said, "Mine, the bastard's mine & I won't face humiliation."
It's covert. It's a cover. & it cloaks itself in doubt.
The more we think about him... the more we court a blackout.
The more we think about him.

5 Cent Coffee Vallejo, California

5 Cent Coffee is a 4 piece post modern jug band full of grit and carnival hokum. We play original songs set in the dusty American tradition of travelling circuses and rail riders down on their luck.
