"Red Wine, Success!" as written by and Matthew Aveiro Jonathan Russell....
He pours the wine into his coffee cup
His gin has dropped
It's time to pick it up
Too fed, he rose out of his bus and left
Tearin slow he's barkin something crass

Each night a thousand stairs go up both ways
So incur the bee get through his sleeves
Elms down at the coast it's too late for Buster's ride
Slide down to his headphones
Sleeps till sallow mind

Success, success, its smile and saccharin
Glamour rust he's poor and poncho's jam
Lives his live a painful and loving day
In the history of a great pregnancy

Scrap public library checkin' out the trough
Starting to appear to gather his thoughts
Scrap public library checkin' out the trough
He's talkin' to himself about him

He's gonna get upset, get upset
He can't sleep
He'll hibernate the cigarette and don't get upset
He's gonna get upset, get upset

    Song MeaningI seen CWK in 2010 at the Wiltern and before Nathan sang this song he said, "This song's called Red Wine, Success. This song's about my brother"

    Lyric Correctionthe correct lyrics are:

    he pours the wine into his coffee cup
    the jazz has dropped, its time to pick it up
    2:30 he rolls out of this brass at last
    terrence love is barking something crass

    each night a thousand stairs go up both ways
    soul and colour peeking through his sleeves
    m's down at the coast its too late for busses run
    slides into his headphones, sleeps to solo monk

    success success his smile is saccharine
    glamorous he's pouring pancho's gin
    lives hes life a painful and lovely day
    in the history of a great pregnancy

    squat public library checking out "the trial"
    strolls to the pier to gather his thoughts
    he's talking to himself about it

    he don't get upset
    can't sleep
    he'll have another ciggarette

    General CommentPeople need to stop copying and pasting from the other lyric sites, which are way off.
    This song is wonderfully written.

    General CommentThis song does seem to be about Terrence Love, owner of the jazz club Steamers in Fullerton, CA. "Poncho" refers to Steamers regular Poncho Sanchez. "Solo Monk" is referring to Thelonious Monk, I assume.
