lyrics

Slave drops of silver, with a one man band
Tell all the preachers, with blood on their hands
Cast a coin for midnight, let the weeds grow tall
Get fire from ice, gold from coal
Gold from coal

Hoist up a glass, for the ribbon soul
Fire in the rocking chair, & the cancer moans
Dawn comes again, no tomorrows sowed
Takes a thousand men, to carry the load
To carry the load.

Outside the winter blows
Sweat in the dark, push and pull
Blood on the rocks, runs dark & cold
through the cracks in the river, black river of gold

Pickaxe swinging, on the playground pyre
Lungs are bleeding, tied with string & wire
Canary is just sleeping, in his cage of tin
There’s a cage made of rock, keep digging in
Keep digging in.

Outside the winter blows
Sweat in the dark, push and pull
Blood on the rocks, runs dark & cold
through the cracks in the river, black river of gold

Break out the windows
On the tombstone street, wash the soot from you face
As you fight for your meat, find no shelter, but your bed is made
Lay your head on the road, that your blood has paved
That your blood has paved

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
