lyrics

Cold light rings the bell for the fight
Between the man & the boy,
still chasing his kite
The fountain's promise can't take back the shame
of loading the dice &
leaving the game

We'll hang from the roof,
shout at the gutter
Pour dust on the sidewalk,
till the diamonds are covered
Spin with the wind as the devils come down
Lay our swords on the ground

Stone rain
& the call of the train
Between the dust & the west,
the boxcar refrain
The wind at our back is calling us home
but this blood & these bones are all that we own

We'll hang from the roof,
shout at the gutter
Pour dust on the sidewalk,
till the diamonds are covered
Spin with the wind as the devils come down
Lay our swords on the ground

Fall down on your knees on the ground
Between the wheat & the rye,
start the Merry-go-round
Plowshares are rusted,
the weeds have grown tall
the sword on your belt,
can't cut down the wall

We'll hang from the roof,
shout at the gutter
Pour dust on the sidewalk,
till the diamonds are covered
Spin with the wind as the devils come down
Lay our swords on the ground

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
