Whiskey and shame,
Hope and pain,
These are the little things that make life so great

Like family and love,
Then losing it all,
Only a tortured soul knows how to fall,

Ba da ba da dah da dah da.
Ba da ba da dah da dah da.
Ba da bah da dah.

It's like judging the man that can't carry his weight,
When you don't know what it was that made him that way

It's easy to throw stones, to break homes,
But I'll take an honest man with a simple plan,
And leave him alone.

Whiskey and shame, hope and pain.
Whiskey and shame, hope and pain.


from Katana EP, track released September 1, 2017
Lyrics adapted from a poem written by a homeless man who introduced himself as Scrot. He heard us practicing in a shed near downtown Wausau, WI, and stopped by to listen. He wanted to see if we'd make a song from his poem. Lyrics adapted by Jon Dawson.
