lyrics

Fish,
a penny from the well,
you get no rest on the long way to hell
Don’t you cry for me,
the fruit of Persephone is free
Time to bleed,
search for the key,
sink through the sand
Put a coin in the ferryman’s hand

Teeth,
gnash and sting,
the only weapons are the ones that you bring
Let sleeping dogs lie,
no one ever told me it was time to for me to die
Try to flee,
climb out of the sea,
sink through the sand
Put a coin in the ferryman’s hand

March,
the hero walks alone,
dressed in a lesser man’s clothes
Libations of blood,
turn to wine as they rise through the mud
Sow the seed,
rise to leave,
sink through the sand
Put a coin in the ferryman’s hand

All my memories turned to trash.
I start to shiver and to thrash.
My obsessions burned to ashes.

Wash
the memory away,
crossroads judgments laid
The damned soul must crawl,
to the pit that yawns beneath us all
No more dreams,
only shackles and screams,
sink through the sand
Put a coin in the ferryman’s hand

about

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. With soaring vocals, sometimes two accordions, sometimes two ukuleles, washboard and junk percussion, our sound is big and brash but soft and mournful, and always compelling. ... more
