"Devolver" full album digital download. FREE! 

To my fans,

Today I want to say THANK YOU and I love you, in the language we speak to each other - with music. 

DEVOLVER is for you, please feel free to download for free - this is your party and this album is me celebrating you. 

In my darkest moments you lifted me up, creatively and personally and that love was instrumental in how I got here today, to safety and in a place of healing - one year sober. 

Please accept this album as token of my appreciation for all the love you have shown me through the years, for your encouragement to continue on when I didn’t think I could and for standing with me, rebuilding this dream house brick by brick. 

Sometimes the trick is to strip it all back, to keep it so simple life has a way to throw you some curb balls - to devolve back into the apeman and embrace the wild spirit in our bones. 

This is that album and it has been my honour to have been given the chance to find myself and be myself fully - embracing my music and my life as it comes - in its own way - free of the patterns of the past.

So thank you. This one’s for you.  You are truly loved and appreciate with all that I am.

Devolver Lyrics

1. DON’T GIVE IT AWAY

I never thought my eyes
would ever see the color
Black voids of possibility
lover

Another day goes by
shit goes down
Am I going underground
New set of batteries for your controller

But Don’t Give it Away
Don’t give it away

Sick people
do you need to see a doctor?
Double 2 cool and Icy
so bi-polar

Another year goes by
glaciers melt
Heat wave in your asteroid belt
Too busy laughing to ask you felt lover
It’s over

But Don’t Give It Away
Don’t Give It Away


2. STARE AT THE TV

I like to stare at the TV
and wait here for you
My life wasn’t easy
and then I met you
I like to stare at the TV
I miss you
Do you miss me

Frozen in time
Whenever you go
I stay inside and
watch my favorite shows

What’s the deal with my eyes
My brain has got this attic  
Plenty of space
and blue static

I like to stare at the TV
And wait here for you
I watch some cool documentary
About World War 2
The cats they are sleeping
The dogs they are too
I stare at the TV I stare at the TV

In the middle of the night
I watch the clock turning round
Listen for you breathing but I don’t hear a sound
Wish I was asleep wish I was underground
Plenty of space and blue static


3. ALIEN USA

All I had is gone
The truth these days
I’ve been cheering gum
Finding new places to wait
And I wait
And I wait
And I wait

Hey somebody tell me what
What is love?
Is it a chemical
If you could bottle it
Take it into the road
And roll it over with a tank

Cats born with laser eyes
And dragons tails
Your dogs can’t hypnotize
They are not there….

They’re gone
Up to the Tuna Store in the sun

What I had to say to you
Was dumb
I’m always drawing blanks
Spatulas for pencils
Filling in what I would say
With “I don’t know” “I forget”
OK
Alien USA
Alien USA


4. BANGING ON MY HEAD

Walking home
through the streets tonight
you know I’m scared

See a person with a 1000 eyes
You know they stare
My skull it starts to melt

I’m banging on my head all wrong

Walking through
the streets downtown
I see THE SHADOW

I tell myself
maybe I’ll get some help
Maybe tomorrow

My skull rings like a drum

I’m banging on my head all wrong
I’m banging on my head all wrong


5. MARQUEE

Tell me something I can understand
Don’t want a lover
wanna be your man
Gimme a headache need an aspirin

Listen up I got something to say
I got these feelings
I don’t wanna betray
You press a button I get blown away
I feel like running, feel like a stray

So what does it take to make it last?
When every victory is in your past
I’ll never lie if you don’t ask

So c’mon with me
Cmon with me
Your names on the marquee
Tonight

Gimme something that can block this void
Spinning too fast
too fast to avoid
You make me crazy make me paranoid

Show me a love ain’t nobody ever seen
Don’t want a voice
Talking on the machine

I was dirty before dirty was clean
Why don’t you throw a match
Into my gasoline

So what does it take to make it last?
When every day it is your last
I’ll never lie if you don’t ask

So c’mon with me
Cmon with me
Your names on the marquee
Tonight


6. EYES ON THE DOOR

What did you say I was high
I can’t remember I can’t hide
What did you say I was high
What did you say I was high

Try hard enough
Just to get by, I know I know
Oh

I get to thinking I wake up so cold in the night
Hyperventilate and sigh
I get to thinking I get high

Don’t know if I should be staying anymore
Don’t know if I’m even sane anymore
I keep looking
My eyes on the door
I keep looking
My eyes on the door

Oh, no
Oh ok

What did you say I was high?
What did you say I was high?


7. FREE YOURSELF

The first day of spring
Everything is new and gold
What will the new day bring
So glad to be out of the cold

Darkness has a way
Of breaking all the things we hold
Dearer than the light
That shines inside your soul

And I don’t like getting old
Cause it feels like losing control

I wanna be free
But I just can’t be right now
I wanna be free
But I just can’t free myself

On my way back home I smile
On my way back home

Here’s an analogy
The sun can only set one way
I’m standing here out west
Staring to the east all day

Feels like I’m going deaf
If it was just a phase
Ain’t nobody listening
to what I say anyway

 And I don’t like getting old
Cause it feels like I’m losing control

I wanna be free
But I just can’t be right now
I wanna be free
But I just can’t free myself
I wanna be me
But I just can’t be myself

On my way back home I smile
On my way back home
My life is right
My life is right
My life


8. TOO BORED TO RUN

They stole everything
Said we’d had enough
While we were waiting in the rain
At the check cashing place
They stole everything
Right in front of your face  

But hey,
what if we weren’t born to run
Hey would it spoil all the fun
Sit down by the reservoir
And watch the sun
Rise over the buildings in the slums

They stole everything
Said we’d had enough
So we made promises
Now we’re breaking them off

They teach you how to pay
For the things you don’t need
They stole everything
And sold it to you for free

But hey,
what if we weren’t born to run
Hey would it spoil all the fun
Sit down by the reservoir
And watch the sun
Hey,
What if we weren’t born to run?
We weren’t
We weren’t.


9. GET AWAY

Passing away
like shadows on a runway
The wind knocks flowers off the graves
We’ve come too far to turn back
It’s one a ticket
On a one way track

Get away
Get away from me

Wild blonde light blows
Across the maze
It turns to pink
It turns to grey
And I’m running from the expectation
Losing ground and fooling no one

Get Away
Get Away from me
All the way
Get away from me
All the way, Get Away

It’s just about time we made it out
It’s just about time we get up
It’s just about time

People talking so much shit
Laugh in your face
You make me sick
The signs outside your window flash
As you smoke silhouette
With silhouette ash

Get Away
Get Away from me
All the way
All the way
Get Away


10. I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU

As I walk down the street
See the shadows of my feet
Under street lamps
Written in the concrete

I’m in love with you again
I’m in love with you again

Past the house down the block
It’s abandoned and unlocked
Hear the rhythm of my heart stop
Tick-tock tick-tock

I’m in love with you again
I’m in love with you again

What can I say
Maybe I was wrong
Forever and a day
I’m in love with you, OK?

In the dark when I’m scared
Think of all the things we shared
Remember when it was easy
And nobody cared?

I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you, again


11. WHY DO YOU HATE ME

I was working at a restaurant
And I hated myself
Wished somebody would kill me

Now I walk into the restaurant
And I sit down
And I look at the menu
And all my ‘No’s’ are ‘Maybe’s’
I still love you baby
Why do you hate me?

And keep me hanging on

If you were wishing for a unicorn
Why not a multi-corn
Is more always better? I don’t know

Sometimes I think that maybe
we weren’t born
and this is all a movie
that somebody made me

Write and direct
But didn’t pay me
I still love you, baby

Why do you hate me?
