Struggle Makes The Man

from The Liquorsmith by Andrew Carl Thams

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The much anticipated coloring book is here. Art, Lyrics, Crayons, Music. What more could you ask for?

    **ATTENTION - Although the item is listed as "Record/Vinyl," it is not in fact a vinyl record. It is a coloring book (with a digital copy of the music included). The Bandcamp store isn't as hipster as we are and did not anticipate the future, so we had to improvise. Apologies for any confusion.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Liquorsmith via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Recorded at Inhesion Studios in Lilburn, GA.
'Struggle Make The Man' is the story of the artist exodus from New York and other major cities in the United States... It was awful being anyone during the pandemic, but it was awful being a musician during the pandemic.


New York is dying at the hands of the devil
but its not fire and brimstone, its no fallen angel
Its a plague just like Moses, but on opposites day
We still want our freedom, but rather let our people sty
You can grow up a good man and still be a villain
You can lay out a grand plan and have it all fall to pieces
Its kind of like a puzzle, where you start with the corners
You match up the colors and you can see the whole picture
I write songs, I do the best that I can
Sometimes I fuck up, but struggle makes the man
So son, don't let me down, when I leave here, you're the man of this house
Be patient, be strong and above all, take care of your mom

New York is dying and there is fear in the streets
There's blood on every front door praying lord pass over me
But they're closing all the storefronts and there' a locust at my door
Saying take one last look at liberty and whisper to her
Long live the queen.
